  • Recently I visited my friend, Judy Kitchen. She is completing a degree at Winebrenner Theological Seminary in Findlay, Ohio. We read a number of translations of II Thessalonians 1:11-12. One thing that caught our attention was Paul’s consideration of God’s grace in verse 12.  

  • By the time you read this, this will be old news and the nation will most likely have already moved on to the next outrageous thing.
    However, as I’m writing this, Kathy Griffin is making headlines.
    Who is Kathy Griffin (and why should you care)? She’s a 56-year-old comedian and self-identified “D-list celebrity” known for being abrasive, brash, crude and sarcastic.
    Most recently she made the national news when she posed for a photo, holding up the fake, but realistic, bloody decapitated head of President Donald Trump.

    My husband hates two things: lying and cockroaches.
    And if there’s such a thing as a lying cockroach, then that critter should especially sleep with one eye open.
    The thing about cockroaches, or “palmetto bugs,” the more genteel name they’re called in the South, they prefer staying hidden in the dark.
    So, your house could be crawling with them and you might never know since they hate the daylight. That means, once the sun goes down and you and your family are snug in your beds, these pests come out to feast and play.
