A Time to Dance...

  1. 11th September 2019
  2. William Williams

Dance, if you can—alone or with someone, even if you are bad at it, especially if you never have danced before. You will thank yourself later, if not immediately. I had always wanted to learn how to dance. The first time I did, I was amazed by how exhilarating it was, combining physical exercise, rhythmic concentration and the challenge of following another...

Muddy Waters

  1. 07th September 2019
  2. J. Davy Crockett III

Have you ever had a song lyric stuck in your head? It could be a tune that you have not heard for years, coming to mind when you least expect it. That happened to me once. It was an old country song of hardship and pain in which the chorus wailed, “I washed my hands in muddy water. I washed my hands but they didn’t come clean. I tried to do like Daddy told me,...

Time is Important

  1. 04th September 2019
  2. Roger Meyer

What is time? Why is it important? What do we need to know about it? And will time end? The answer to these questions depends on whether you are a physicist, a writer of science fiction, a writer of songs, a philosopher, or a poet.

A Word in Haste

  1. 31st August 2019
  2. Karl Harmdierks (guest columnist)

Most of us have been asked the question, “Can you do me a favor?” We commonly reply, “Sure,” right before being confronted with a task we are not able or, frankly, willing to do. In today’s society, we often do not give such an exchange a second thought, even though in that moment we have given our word and broken it.

Homework

  1. 28th August 2019
  2. Charles Knowlton (1927-2013)

For many school-age children, there comes a time of accountability. Teachers and parents (not to mention children) know it well: the moment when, standing tall before their children, Mom or Dad asks, “Have you done your homework?” This is a big question, and one that has far-reaching implications outside the classroom and into the adult world.

And the sea turned to blood…

  1. 24th August 2019
  2. J. Charles Ogwyn

"Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man; and every living creature in the sea died." This is what the Apostle John saw in vision and recorded in Revelation 16:3. Many noted the eerie sight of past oil spills, like those in the Gulf of Mexico and Dailan, China, appearing as blood upon the sea. What will really...

Who Do You Imitate?

  1. 21st August 2019
  2. Roger Meyer

One way we learn is by imitating someone. Children, especially, are imitators. But adults also learn by imitating others, particularly those they admire. Who do you imitate?

"Beyond What is Written"

  1. 14th August 2019
  2. Roger Meyer

We usually applaud those who take initiative and “go above and beyond.” But sometimes “going beyond” is not a good idea. For example, why are there many differing Christian denominations? Did they go “beyond what is written”?

A Sharp Axe

  1. 10th August 2019
  2. J. Davy Crockett III

When I was a Boy Scout, many years ago, going to Summer Camp was a great adventure. Living in a tent with other boys, hiking forest trails, and learning new skills were memorable experiences. One class that was useful then, and which I still find useful today, was how to safely handle a hatchet or small axe. These hand tools are essential in camping and being a...
