It’s Not Right

I dread when the new year rolls around. All the questions about resolutions and what changes I’m making, it makes me break out in a sweat, frankly. Also, back off, that’s personal. What if my resolution is to stop taking drugs, did you want to know that I take drugs in secret? (I don’t) Now …

Difficult Times

37108_all_023_01-sitting

Like so many others, I have been deeply saddened by the events on Friday, 12/14/2012.  I realize that there was mental illness involved, I can’t help but think there was a little hell on earth that day in the shooter.  I cannot imagine the fear that must have been in that school, but also the …

Defeat Hurts

20120805000021_0

Who Loses the Sportsmanship Award

sour

If you have not seen the August 6th telecast of the Olympics, or do not know the outcome of the women’s individual vault, STOP READING NOW.  You’ve been warned.  There is also probably a track and field spoiler in here somewhere, too. I have hated NBCs coverage of the Olympics.  If you aren’t American or …

Tolerance…

I spent a good chunk of time Saturday walking around the Hsi Lai Buddhist Temple in Hacienda Heights.  It was a beautiful campus (I know that’s not really the right word, but I can’t think of anything else to call it), it was peaceful and calming.  Shortly after I arrived, a service started and it …

Share an Anecdote

My church is a lay ministry so everyone pitches in and does their portion.  The leader of my congregation receives no stipend; neither do the teachers, missionaries, music people or anyone else in the church.  When a person gets a new job we call it a calling because you are called to do whatever it …
