Religion

  • Faith of our Fathers

    With Independence Day right upon us, I’d like to share quotes from some of the founding fathers. People who had a vision for this country. Great men of faith, who weren’t afraid to express their belief in Jesus Christ.

  • Freedom involves boundaries

    A few years back I was driving down a windy, two lane road with only a double yellow line separating the opposing lines of traffic. I don’t usually dawdle as I drive so I was surprised when this car flew past me like I was standing still. I remember saying to my daughter, “She’d had better be careful, this is a dangerous road.”

  • Is it time to arm churches?

    A faith group in our town recently held a worship event with about 350 plus people in attendance. Throughout most of the Friday evening worship event and Saturday morning recognition service two armed police officers were located in the main event auditorium. They were wearing uniforms and badges and wearing their pistols. There were also three people (with permits) carrying concealed pistols.

  • Clear vision ahead

    Until a few years ago I had great eyesight, but now I need reading glasses. And I never realized until then how dirty your glasses could become before you notice. You just start squinting and the words on the page start getting fuzzy and you wonder why.

    It’s sort of like a dirty windshield with bad windshield wipers in the rain!You can see through the glass, but everything is smeared and distorted. And let’s face it, with reading and especially with driving, it is a good thing to be able to see clearly. Glasses and windshields often need cleaning.

  • Dangerous beauty

    I am not a storm chaser, but I can understand why some people do it.  I know a lot of them say it is for the science, and I am sure we can learn a lot, but I don’t think that is the whole story.  If it were just about learning more about thunderstorms, tornadoes and hurricanes there would not be any “Storm Chaser” vacation packages.  And yes, that is a real thing.
