Hide or Seek?

Many of our cities, states, and even our federal government are financially broken in the day we live.  It seems that balanced budgets are a thing of the past except for a balanced budget for our household.  Brokenness is as old as the Garden of Eden.  When Adam and Eve chose to mismanage the Garden … Continue reading

God or Satan?

In Jesus’ day, people were, let’s say, “a little confused.”  Jesus, the good and loving Son of God was accused of being a devil.  But this was nothing new.  Job’s wife accused God of being responsible for all their losses.  “Curse God and die,” she told her husband. In the Book, Job was asked by … Continue reading

The recent death of Jean Stapleton reminded many people of her role as Edith in “All in the Family” and of course Archie.  The Bunkers were, let’s say, “a little dysfunctional” but in the middle of that word and the content of “All in the Family” was a little fun and laughter. But family situations … Continue reading
