  • Spring break from teaching at U of L falls conveniently during the week of St. Patrick’s Day; which is also my target date for planting onions and potatoes.

  • Be a Jedi Christian!
    We must be prepared — we must be equipped, armed. Every day we wrestle against “The Empire” — Satan and his Imperial Forces.
    But we need not fear! The “Force” (Jesus) not only is close to us, He is here to help us. All we need do is call on Him.
    There are parallels between Jedi warriors and Christians.

  • A number of years ago a woman called me at work, wanting to tell me her story.
    She wanted to tell someone who would believe her and not laugh, someone who believes that God can and does do strange and wonderful, impossibly improbable things.
    She had heard that I believe that God makes pigs fly.
    That I do, although I haven’t seen any in a very long time, but I’m praying that I will.
