  • A Return To Civility: Intro

    Contributed on Jun 23, 2024

    I noticed that as a society we've seemed to have lost our Civility, we no longer show one another respect. Could that be because we've lost our common morality? This is a new look at the 10 Commandments

    Earlier this year I was struck by how uncivil our society has become. I can’t remember if it was a personal encounter with someone or something I saw on the news or read on social media. But I do remember thinking: Why can’t we just be civil to each other, what can’t we just be nice? It seems that more

  • Finding Wisdom For Your Reconstruction

    Contributed on May 25, 2024

    Contributed on May 4, 2024

And yes, I am a little vain; the more

    based on 1 rating

    The entire Easter Story hinged on the word but, and it started with Good Friday

    Choices were made. That is the reality of life; choices are made. Good choices, bad choices and indifferent choices, but life is determined by the choices we make. And often, we don’t understand the consequences that might come as a result of the choices we make. We are simply living in the moment more

  • Taking Christ Out Of Christmas

    Contributed on Dec 2, 2023

    If Christmas has become a "cultural" holiday, This message looks at what happens when we try and take out all of the religious elements.

    Have you noticed that every year, people seem more intent on secularizing Christmas? They wish you a “Happy Holiday” or “Seasons Greetings” and then have presentations at school that make no mention of the Manger or the Wise Men, let alone the Christ Child. Now, I may be a little overly sensitive, more
