I say an episode of #Blackish where Dre (the dad) was serving on a jury that had to decide the fate of a young man, I believe for stealing. While in the jury room, Dre was adamant the young man was innocent but all the others were convinced he was guilty. In fact, they had […]

So, who cares?  Who cares about Tyberius, Pilate, Herod, Phillip and Lysanius, Annas and Caiaphis? Ok, granted…we Christians, who know Jesus’ story, will care about Pilate and Herod a bit later.  But right now, right in this gospel today, what’s the big deal with these guys?

Commendable theoretical innovation, defective on many points, however. Firstly, it was an ugly admittance that equality for all is […]

Searching for the Way

I was playing a video game and God corrected my strategy and focus. In this game, you need to match three items to move and remove barriers. This allows you to get to these grassy places where hidden tools were and then to where the hidden object was. I know! Computer nerd! It has to […]

Faith, Hope, and Remembrance

Gospel Reading: Luke 3:10-18  “What should we do then?” the crowd asked. John answered, “Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same.” Even tax collectors came to be baptized. “Teacher,” they asked, “what should we do?”  “Don’t collect any more than […]
