Halloween Creep

  1. 05th October 2019
  2. Jonathan Bueno

My family just moved into a new house. It has been an exciting and hectic few weeks. You probably know the feeling. The excitement of a new home and a new neighborhood was dampened, however, when we found out that there were ghosts—more than one actually, along with a resident witch, and even a werewolf. All joking aside, of course, there aren’t any real ghosts...

You Can See Invisible Things

  1. 02nd October 2019
  2. Roger Meyer

Lots of things are invisible to our eyes. For example, we cannot see air, gravity, heat, or sound. In the world of make-believe, magic cloaks or rings can make one invisible. In science fiction, cloaking devices make space ships invisible. Scientists work with stealth technology to try to make things seem invisible, or as close as possible. But, what about the...

Quality Dinners and Healthy Families

  1. 28th September 2019
  2. Mike DeSimone

A couple of years ago, I was speaking with a gentleman who told me about a tradition in his family that would come to shape some of the traditions in mine. He explained that his mother would read books aloud to the family during dinnertime! This put into action a thought process that would lead me to dramatically change my family's dinnertime dynamics. As a...

One proverb I read early in life was titled, “For Want of a Nail.” It shows the difference a little thing can make. A little thing can make the difference between life and death! Numerous stories, proverbs, and wise sayings teach that small things can bring serious consequences. There are various versions of the “For Want of a Nail” proverb, but a basic version...

  2. John Wheeler (guest columnist)

A few years ago, some of my friends and I were discussing the vastness of the universe and the wonders found in it. At length, one of my friends asked in astonishment, “What’s it all for?”

An "Exploited Peasant With an Attitude"?

  1. 18th September 2019
  2. Wyatt Ciesielka

Was Jesus just a compassionate prophet? Or, was Jesus God in the flesh? Paul warned that many would come and preach “another Jesus whom we have not preached” (2 Corinthians 11:4), and theories about Jesus abound. Some professing Christian scholars even claim that Jesus was nothing more than “an exploited peasant with an attitude” (“John Dominic Crossan’s ‘...

How to Live Life Skillfully

  2. Roger Meyer

Life presents us with little problems, big problems, and more problems. Bad things happen to us. The car unexpectedly breaks down. We may contract an illness or suffer an injury, accident, or tragedy. We may lose a job. Someone dear to us may die. How do we deal with these circumstances when all we want is a healthy and happy life?

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.

The first time I did, I was amazed by how exhilarating it was, combining physical exercise, rhythmic concentration and the challenge of following another...

  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.
