Saturday we bid goodbye to August and hello to a new season. I know fall doesn't officially begin until September 23rd, but it's close enough for me. Personally, I'm more than ready for weather cool enough to warrant a jacket or sweater. I wasn't built for sunshine (as...

Last night at the Men for Christ meeting, I accidentally gave $6 to the woman collecting the money for the meal instead of the actual $5 cost. When she stopped me to hand me back the extra dollar (and as someone apologized for the absentminded preacher), I just stuffed...

One of my favorite passages in the Gospel of John comes at the end of chapter six. Jesus has just taught some pretty heavy stuff, and the crowd doesn't care for the implications of cannibalism in the "I am the bread of life" statement. Slowly and then not-so-slowly, th...

I'm currently using the library as my office-away-from-office once more. The carpet people are putting in new carpet in the back hallway, stairs, and offices, so I'm living a life in exile. I don't mind, though. After all, I haven't had to unplug the internet gear yet,...

Too many church dinners and a sedentary lifestyle finally did me in: either I would need to lose weight or buy bigger pants. Not enjoying the latter idea, for a week now I've had salad for lunch every day. They may taste like sadness, but the immediate effect was somew...

I don't know that you've ever noticed, given the fact I wear long sleeves 360 days out of 365, but the inside of my forearms are vastly different. The right one is as pale as the rest of me (which is to say, proceed only with proper eye protection when in bright light)...

August 2, 2018

Somehow the topic of death was once again broached last night, and something came up I'd like to address today. (Seriously, though. This stuff is beginning to follow me around everywhere.) Someone made the comment they were fine alive and they'd be fine dead, but dying...
