Thoughts From World 3

A fool can offer words, a creator can offer worlds An academic can show you a world, a dreamer invites you into it Consumers of knowledge are everywhere, generators of knowledge are the rarity Anyone can summarize the great thoughts of others, yet not simply anyone can have great thoughts An English teacher can beatContinue reading “Thoughts From World 3”

A Thanksgiving Re-Membering

It was probably 22 years ago when I made the comment that would follow me the rest of my days. I was a 13 year old kid riding in the back seat of my parents car on the way to West Virginia for Thanksgiving. My mother, always the astute observant one, said, “well today isContinue reading “A Thanksgiving Re-Membering”

Don’t Blame Your Vote on the Bible

A curious thing has happened this election cycle, the likes of which I have never witnessed in my 35 years of life: Christians are voting for a man that is completely morally bankrupt. It’s an unusual place for people of faith to find themselves in. Usually, at least where I grew up, the sinner isContinue reading “Don’t Blame Your Vote on the Bible”

Back to the Future and Syria…some lessons we must unlearn

I’ll never forget one of the opening scenes in the movie Back to the Future.  Doc and Marty have gathered in a mall parking lot to experiment with Doc’s new time machine.  This is the setting for the first test run of a machine that will travel through time and space.  Einstein will be vindicated.Continue reading “Back to the Future and Syria…some lessons we must unlearn”

What is “White Privilege?”

There is a video going viral of a 14 year old boy making an apology tour for “white privilege.”  The video shows a young middle school aged kid reciting a poem at school in which he derides white privilege (thus bringing attention to it) while also refusing to abscond his privilege. Yes it’s a problem,Continue reading “What is “White Privilege?””

Have You Ever Woke Up White?

Have you ever work up and realized you’re white? I don’t mean have you gotten out of bed in the morning, brushed your teeth and stared at your Caucasian skin, noting blemishes, razor nicks or an unsightly new hair. I mean, have you ever woken up and REALIZED YOU ARE WHITE? Well.  I haven’t either…untilContinue reading “Have You Ever Woke Up White?”

Hillary Clinton, Prophet of the Anthropocene

Today, as I listened to Hillary Clinton on the radio, I heard something profoundly more troubling than rote populist verbiage or party line politics.  I heard her tout this statistic, and I paraphrase, “Our Economy is a 70% consumer economy; therefore, the more expendable income everyone has the better the economy can be for everyone.”Continue reading “Hillary Clinton, Prophet of the Anthropocene”

Value Voting is Nonsense

Recently, the Atlantic published a column describing the transition of part of the American voting segment from value voters to voters of nostalgia.  Christians who used to vote based on a candidates position on abortion, gay rights, euthanasia, pro-family, etc., have forgotten those values and are now voting for their identity as Americans. We haveContinue reading “Value Voting is Nonsense”

Death on Ash Wednesday: In Memoriam

James Napier was a man of stark truth.  A man of black and white. His affability was matched by his billowing voice, a voice that was as inviting as it was stern and filled with rigid conviction. “When this old body takes its last breath…I’ll be at the right hand of the father…” He diedContinue reading “Death on Ash Wednesday: In Memoriam”

In Memoriam: Posthumous Lessons from my Boston Terrier, Jax

My little boy kept going over to the blind, opening it, and peering outside, to see if it had really happened.  His mother would come behind him and close the blind again, trying to put a salve on the curious wound that had now been opened.   He would not be deterred.  Again and again, thisContinue reading “In Memoriam: Posthumous Lessons from my Boston Terrier, Jax”
