    Contributed by Michael Dean on Jan 26, 2013

    VALUE AND SERVICE = DESIGN "For there are those who, giving the name of atoms to certain imperishable and most minute bodies that are supposed to be infinite in number, allege that these atoms, as they were carried along by chance in the void, all clashed fortuitously against each other in an more

    Contributed by Timothy Darling on Apr 28, 2010

    Every day over 25,000 people die of hunger. That's over 1,000 people an hour. In other words, as many people die of hunger every hour as are killed in the world's deadliest wars in a year. One person every 3 seconds ... most often, children. If the effects of death by famine in the world today were more

  • Give While You're Still Alive

    Contributed by Timothy Darling on Apr 19, 2010

    GIVE WHILE YOU'RE STILL ALIVE I remember a friend of mine suggesting that waiting until after your death to give the people you love something you want them to have is not the best way to do it. If you wait until they get it from your will, in many cases, they must pay an inheritance tax on it. more

    Contributed by Timothy Darling on Apr 15, 2010

    President Lincoln was, in some people's opinions, our most powerful president - able to hold the nation together in the face of civil war and to do so as he simultaneously strengthened the issue of abolition that led to it.

  • I Remember A Man In One Of My Childhood Churches. ...

    Contributed by Timothy Darling on Apr 7, 2010

    I remember a man in one of my childhood churches. He had the most distinctive prayers. They were long, but it was also the timbre of his voice, the passion of his requests, his volume in a huge sanctuary. I could have been in Topeka and heard him pray and I would have recognized him. It had to be more

    I THIRST "The sea is his, and he made it," and all fountains and springs are of his digging. He poureth out the streams that run among the hills, the torrents which rush adown the mountains, and the flowing rivers which enrich the plains. One would have said, If he were thirsty he would not tell more

  • On A Lighter Side Here Are Some Things That Wise ...

    Contributed by Greg Wiens on Mar 30, 2010

    On a lighter side here are some things that wise people like me like to ponder: 1. Why is there a best before date on Sour Cream? 2. Where do forest rangers go to "get away from it all"? 3. Why are cigarettes sold in gas stations when smoking is prohibited there? 4. If a cow laughed, would milk more

  • The Kingdom Of God Is Like A Vw Beetle. It Is One ...

    Contributed by Timothy Darling on Mar 27, 2009

    The kingdom of God is like a VW Beetle. It is one of the smallest cars you will ever see. It is not very comfortable or powerful. It is not very stylish or practical. It is very cheap and not impressive in any way. There is no status with owning one. And yet, it is one of the most recognizable cars more

  • Don't Fear Your Capture

    DON'T FEAR YOUR CAPTURE We may not see it clearly, but we are ultimately safe. Following Jesus may not always seem like the wisest thing to do, but the trap is the best place to be. Think of yourself as a precious, endangered species. There are few of you left, but you are ill, and the more
