Evangelizing Truth Through Relationship

There is a relationship which is shared between our perspectives on truth, relationships with others, and opportunities to strengthen both. We live in a time when there is a lot of evangelizing going on with all manner of agenda, and an atmosphere in which recognizing and focusing on truth can sometimes be de-emphasized. In this environment we must ask ourselves who is evangelizing truth if not us, and how are we using our most powerful tool, our relationships, in the pursuit of honoring and strengthening truth?

What Kind of Nation?

This solid work examines the relationship between Thomas Jefferson and John Marshall, which was as contentious as one would expect a rivalry between a staunch state’s rights proponent and a Federalist could be. It also serves as a lens through which to view the national dilemma as expounded by Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, and others. Both Jefferson and Marshall were right of course, and both were wrong; a lesson we would do well to take to heart today.

Finding Enjoyment in New Places

I am about 75% through a major property clearing effort, removing excess shrubs and bushes to protect our home from wildfire risk. Our property isn’t large, but it’s large enough that this is a real effort, and it abuts a large federal wildland property that is grossly overgrown.

Where Will Our Healing Moments Come From?

My generation came of age in the 1960’s and 1970’s, a time not so different from now. For those who don’t have the reference point, this was the season of political assassinations (Kennedy, King, Kennedy), Viet Nam, the 1968 Democratic convention, Watergate, the National Guard killing students at Kent State, race riots, free speech and free love, not to mention Woodstock and the disco era. We survived all of that to enter a new era of relative peace, prosperity, and pride in our nation. How did we manage to overcome a time that many Americans and all our allies feared would be the end of us?

I Take My Coffee Black and My News Unfiltered

If God intended coffee to have milk, sugar, syrup, or anything else in it, it would be in the bean. Even coffee is best when enjoyed in its purest form. I know, that is a subjective statement, but I use it here to introduce a concept. Bear with me, please. Should I prefer additives in my coffee I am free to exercise my own choice. Many do. As true as that is, you may have guessed that this post is not about coffee. It is about the long lasting and current state of news media.

There Is A Time for Every Season

Despite what we often think or tell ourselves, times like these remind us that resiliency matters. The question is, how does one go about being resilient in the midst of such? Hopefully, there has been a bit of preplanning and preparation, but there are still things we can do even at this stage. Here are a few examples.
