  • A MATTER OF OPINION: The game of politics

    Some people thrive on politics.

    I’m not talking about those elected to the governmental process, but the ones standing on the sides lines of the big game. There are people who actually enjoy following the maneuvers of political figures as if watching cross-town rivals play in the championship game. It’s fun for these public affairs junkies to anticipate a player’s next move. Will they punt? Or go for the Hail Mary pass? They delight in watching grown men and women grapple for power, pull each other down and sling some mud.

  • FAITH FOR TODAY: Godly influence, chocolate and toys

    With Father’s Day recently past, I’ve been thinking a lot about how I parent my kids.  Specifically, I’ve been thinking about what types of things come into their lives and how they are influenced by them.

    For example, my little girl has been learning her colors.  A couple of months ago as she was first getting this concept, she demonstrated her first awareness of color.  She brought a brown plastic toy to me.  I asked her what color it was, and she very plainly declared, “Chocolate!”
