A Clarification (to my previous post)

I want to clear things up just a bit, though I don’t know if my efforts will do much good. Nevertheless, it is being said of me that in a recent blog post of mine I am “bashing working moms. ” However, I want to make it known that it certainly wasn’t my intent to […]

For You

Gift of Truth

Me: “You are racist.” She: “Racism exists.  You are choosing to participate in racist ways.” Which one is better? My comment was used in part of a longer example in discussing discrimination and reconciliation.  She picked up on my hypothetical comment and suggested how I might say it better, citing word choice as a large, contributing factor in […]

Just a Change of Scenery

I was talking to a missionary friend of mine a couple weeks back.  For her and her family, this is a new adventure, but the honeymoon period is wearing off.  They’re now used to the un-American plumbing, the native grocery shopping, and the too-small taxis for their tall American frames.  They’re still learning the language, […]

Their blogs make me want to invite them over and be friends. Then I come back to mine and try to compete. But that’s […]

“Six years you shall sow your land and gather in its produce, but the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave, the beasts of the field may eat. In like manner you shall do with your vineyard and your olive […]

Perspective

>In church this morning, a prayer was posted on the big screen during a time of contemplation and reflection. As I read the words of thanksgiving, I waited for another portion of prayer to be displayed as a follow-up, of sorts. I waited for that second half of the prayer (which never came, by the […]
