Sustainable Ministry

I run - mostly because I like to eat! Well, let's be honest - I jog! Because I have been laid up after several consecutive surgeries, I have to work harder at running - I've lost my conditioning. Running for me is a real chore. I've recently been exposed to "burst" running or "intervals." I walk to warm up, and then jog for 3 minutes, then sprint at 80% for 15 seconds foll...

Olympic Dedication

I have been eager to find the opportunity to get involved in watching the 2016 Rio Olympics. I essentially missed the first week. I enjoy watching the competition and the excellence represented by those who compete, but especially those who win.

Normandy Cemetery

Today I stood amid thousands of crosses in the American Military Cemetery in Normandy, France with a deep sorrow and immense patriotic pride.

All of us need to see our own personal responsibility to reach ou...

Political Convention

This week the Republican National Convention is in full swing. So many people in the United States - even worldwide - believe that the hope of this nation rests in the hands of political power and the GOP. The claim that if the Republicans don't win the Presidential Election, then hope is gone. The thought is that if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, then the LGBTQ age...

The Cause of Terror

"Monster," "Extremist," "Jihadist," "terrorist," "hater," "racist," "insurgent," "radical," and whatever other moniker that one may select, we are all impacted by the reality of depravity finding the lack of restraint. Whether we refer to a truck driver slaying over 80 people in France, a sniper targeting a dozen officers in Texas, a gunman murdering over 50 people in Fl...
