I just sent $50 to Friends of the Earth.  I don’t know how they found me but they did.  I suppose I’m on every “green” list in the world and most of the time the request for money falls on deaf ears. The messages are…  Read More »

We just finished reading Psalm 46 the other Sunday morning in church. Our pastor had begun his sermon and I was urging myself to listen. But something from Psalm 46 kept tugging at me. I couldn’t concentrate. I kept thinking of verse 7, which r…  Read More »

I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the items that I come across during my readings. Beach reading? Not quite, but I call this “summer” column a potpourri of information. I’ll return to my normal messages and ruminat…  Read More »

My comments in this issue are really a sequel to my last column. I know I irritated some readers, particularly Professors Susan Brantley and Anna Meyerdorff. Additionally, I’ve had any number of emails saying I’m all wet and don’t u…  Read More »
