What Social Media Hath Wrought

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 15:22:35 +0000

Recently, a young man responded to a post that my wife, Sanderijn, put on her Facebook page.  What followed is something you really need to read for yourself to fully appreciate but the quick summary is this. Our daughter, Sarah, and her two children were in town for the weekend. Sanderijn, Sarah and Sarah’s two…



Click

Sat, 14 Oct 2017 19:50:21 +0000

It was the simple flick of a switch. It apparently wasn’t a physical switch like the light switch jutting from a wall. Rather, it was likely a swipe or click. A simple movement of a finger over a plane of glass or the pressure of a hand placed on a button while the pointer hovered…



Signs and Symbols

Tue, 30 May 2017 16:26:43 +0000

I think we should pay a lot more attention to signs and less attention to symbols. Let’s start with whittling down our obsession with symbols. What are symbols? They are things that represent an idea, person, process or thing.  They aren’t inherently bad. In fact, they can do a lot of good. Countries and cultures…



When we promote …

Mon, 30 Jan 2017 14:26:25 +0000

Promotions. We’re talking about people, not product. I recently went through promotions at my work and at my avocation. My work is marketing communications business. My avocation is Karate. At work, we have annual performance reviews. There is the question of whether you promote a person to a higher level of responsibility, higher pay and…



Truth Takes a Beating … But No Lie Lives Forever

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 14:32:38 +0000

In the famous exchange between Jesus of Nazareth and the Roman ruler Pontius Pilate, Jesus is recorded as claiming “everyone on the side of truth, listens to me.” Pilate dismissively responds, “What is truth?” and walks out of the room. Truth. It has never been very popular.  It is taking a particular beating these days. …



Gratitude.

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 15:19:01 +0000

Gratitude. It can change your brain. It can make you healthy. It can make you happy. But if you buy into gratitude for those reasons, I think you’re missing the point. You may not even be expressing “true” gratitude at all. Gratitude has been defined as the “readiness to show appreciation for and to return…



Today I Prayed.

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 04:03:03 +0000

I went to church to worship today and I prayed.  I prayed for my family. Praying for my family is pretty much a given every day, not just on Sunday. I prayed for the nation. I do that a lot too but not nearly as often.  I prayed for many, many other people and things. And…



Christian faith and the U.S. Presidential Election

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 00:51:03 +0000

We’re at the height (and fortunately the end!) of a very divisive and contentious political campaign.  People who know me, likely know how I will vote. More about that later.  Mr. Trump has sought the support of notable leaders of evangelical Christian institutions and organizations.  I’ve listened to Jerry Fallwell Jr.  I’ve read Wayne Gruden. …



On Turning 60.

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 01:47:50 +0000

I turned 60 today. Happy birthday me! And my brother. His name is Steve. We were born on the same day six years apart. He was the first child. I was the last. Perfect bookends. He remains everyone’s big brother. I remain everyone’s little brother. That is one thing that 60 years hasn’t changed. People…



As You Go Through Life

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 18:40:12 +0000

For all the lovers of poetry out there. I was rummaging through some old files and came across my father’s favorite. Poem that is. Even though he knew it line-by-line he kept a crumpled copy stuffed away in a bulging leather wallet. Going through our family record I saw an original that he had typed…
