  • 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?

  • Being an ‘empty-nester’ doesn’t have to mean feeling lonely, purposeless

    Something about my son turning 21 two weeks ago really hammered home the fact that my kids are both grown, and I’m now labeled an empty-nester.
    Both of them have been living on their own for over a year. My daughter is almost 20, so reality hit pretty late. But it hit hard.
    I’m an empty-nester. At the ripe old ago of 36, I’m an empty-nester.
    It’s not that I feel any different; I don’t.
