  • God's kingdom is full of failures

    Once again it’s time for a mumbo jumbo, bits of odds and ends column filled with random thoughts and various things I’ve found and have been saving that are too short for a full-length column yet too good not to use. I hope there will be something helpful to you.
    •In a sermon at the church in Tampa we often visit, the pastor talked about fear, a subject I am well acquainted with, although I’m much better than I was.

  • Love is willing to be uncomfortable, get messy

    This past week at church we sang the song, “They’ll Know We Are Christians By Our Love,” which made me smile.
    Written by a Catholic priest in 1968, I knew the song from my childhood. I have a vivid memory of my little brother singing it -- while beating the tar out of my other brother.
    I’m sure neither of my brothers appreciated the irony.

  • Judging is part of being Christian

    When I was a young man on Maryland’s eastern shore, the best job opportunity was working for Dupont, which was tough to get on with and to work for. They employed efficiency managers to track the time it took to complete a task and then used that to gauge (judge) your performance, or failure.  
    We live in a culture where judging is the norm, e.g. sports, pageants, school awards, promotions, etc.

  • Being the ‘tocayo’ of Christ comes through grace, faith

     In my family we have two new babies: Lily Aaron and Zachary Jack.
    Lily is my niece Jennifer’s third daughter and Zach is my nephew Shane’s third son. Both babies were born just a few weeks apart, Lily in July and Zachary in August. My sister now has six grandchildren.
    If Lily had been a boy she would be Jack Aaron.
    Jack is my dad’s name. Aaron is Lily’s dad Marc’s middle name.
    Got all that?

  • The only way off the crazy train is to not jump on

    Just this morning my friend Tara and I were wondering if it’s possible to be addicted to drama.
    She calls it being on the crazy train. She said when the crazy train comes around and she hitches a ride on it she’s firing on all cylinders, she’s in high gear and overdrive, not to mention mixing metaphors.
    She feels alive, she says, yet at the same time she hates it with all her might.

  • Be thankful for education

    Back in the day, “Back to School” came after Labor Day week-end. Summer went on and on. Of course, since our school year started so late, we had neither fall nor spring breaks at our school. Rest from classroom activities came with Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter holidays; teachers’ in-service days; and, the occasional snow day.
    The first weeks of school held a certain excitement. Everything seemed new – new classes, new challenges, new teachers and friends. Some classes held our interest ... others, not so much. That’s how life works.
