Some US reps in Congress and other Veterans of Afghanistan specifically have been trying to get Afghans who worked with the US out of that country. US State Department has been less than helpful, it sounds like. I am praying for all concerned. And God bless the #MilVets in Congress who are trying to help … Continue reading Lord, have mercy.
I hear so much about “virtue signaling” these days. And it’s kind of depressing. If you have not heard the phrase, it basically means that some people will show their distaste or hatred of some behavior or movement or policy and thus show how they are somehow morally superior to the people who support or … Continue reading Thoughts on Virtue
It's such a simple idea. I learned through my theology studies that God is "simple." That does not mean He is without intelligence or without complexity.

Yes, a lot of terrible things have been going on. Yes, there is still racism in the U.S. which is not something any … Continue reading Thoughts on where we are now
Sunday's Gospel reading included the famous John 3:16. "God so loved the world that He sent His only Son so that everyone who believes in Him might not perish but might have eternal life." But for me, the next line is just as vital and often forgotten. "For God did not send His Son into … Continue reading You’ve Got To Be Taught

And peaceful protests to right a wrong or shine a light on an injustice have long been a part of our country's history. Mr. Floyd himself was … Continue reading Reflection for today
