There's a poem by Andrew Marvell, "To His Coy Mistress," that begins, "Had we but world enough and time [ . . . ]" It's a great phrase. For the speaker and his eponymous lover, the phrase is his desire for more time for them to flirt and fall in love. For us, though, t...

One of my favorite Peanuts cartoons has Snoopy hard at work at his typewriter banging out a theology book. His title: Has It Ever Occurred to You That You Might Be Wrong? For some people, I'm sure it hasn't; they hold to their childhood beliefs, well, dogmatically...

The law of diminishing returns says, in a nutshell, the more times you do something or experience something, the less you get out of it. Usually we apply it to jokes. The first time you hear a hilarious joke, you laugh until you cry. By the twenty-ninth time you hear t...

We all grew up singing the same song in church:

As Russell County begins another school year, I want to let our students, parents, teachers, administrators, and other school staff that we are praying for you! I know it will be another long year, but it's also another year of opportunities and growth -- spiritually a...
