When it comes to music, I got stuck in the ‘70’s. In my mind, very little compares favorably to Carole King or James Taylor—or Gordon Lightfoot, America, or Seals and Crofts. My favorite Spotify playlist is called “Dad’s Groovy Music” because since the ‘70’s, I have been groovy—the way a 33LP ought to be. So... Continue Reading →
What! A doctor attempts to pray for his colleagues? Be ready, Christians. Shining your light might cost you.
Imagine bragging that you have a light in your home, but you never turn it on. What would be the good of having a light but never letting it shine? Light is meant to shine.

The NFL season begins in just one month. So, plenty of stories will be generated from how well (or how poorly) Tim Tebow plays. Getting a jump on the competition, President Barack Obama told a radio audience yesterday that he thought the Tebow trade was a mistake (See President Obama Weighs in on Tebow, Sanchez)....

[This post was composed on the morning of June 25, 2011, in honor of a certain young lady who helped her Daddy in the garden.] Chivalry these days appears to be in hiding, and some think it is dead altogether; but I am happy to report that chivalry has made his appearance known today in...

I am glad to hear this response from Secondhand Smoke regarding the emergency declaration by President Obama. Wesley J. Smith had the same initial reaction as I had to the news. It makes me think I am not crazy. Of course, it could simply mean we are both crazy. It seems to me that some... Continue Reading →
Check out the entry from Thursday at The Corner by Mark Hemingway; it is astounding what blinders operate in the press. We must continue to speak up and point out such glaring hypocrisy because there are still many folks who are reasonable and do not hate Christians. Interesting, too, is a comparison of the science produced... Continue Reading →
Dr. Mohler and John Piper have both written small pieces praising Twitter for the power it possesses to spread good news and good intentions. Even though this story does not have spreading the good news of salvation in view, it is a tangible demonstration of the power of Twitter and other new media to do... Continue Reading →

I have a couple of pictures here from the trip back home which I thought were peculiar to the swampland. I post them here for your enjoyment. The first is a friendly reminder to food stamp purchasers. (In case you are wondering, the word is "boo-dan," and the taste is delicious. We purchased some to... Continue Reading →
Wow, Go Britt Hume. Read this interview, especially to the end. Many public figures will say that they want to retire in order to spend more time with family, but this is refreshingly new to me. Mr. Hume wants to retire so he can spend more time in Bible Study? Super fantastic job, Mr. Hume.
One of the most hopeful signs of Sara Palin’s rise to the VP nomination for Republicans is what she brings to the table of humanity. Sara Palin’s life (her anthropology lived out) highlights the strength of the conservative tradition and the weakness of the liberal. Allow me to explain. When one looks at Palin’s family,...
