The cause of Christ

A lot of us humans have a pet cause, which is one of the things that sets us apart from the animal kingdom…our pets don’t have a human cause. But, of course, I’m… Continue reading

Slippery Socialism

A view to the vertical

I thought I’d start out this post about political parties with a joke. Actually, two…’cause I want to be fair. What do you get when you cross a pilgrim with a Democrat? A… Continue reading

In my last post I referenced the call on a Christian’s life to love others, even our enemies. I thought today I would break down what I understand that to mean…what that looks… Continue reading
