  • Here’s a question for you: When is sin a good thing?
    Recently, I heard a preacher say, “The greatest gift that God gives to the people he loves is their sin — when they know it.”
    I’ll let you digest that for a minute.
    The preacher did not say that God thinks sin is good. Sin is what separates the creature from the Creator, the very thing that caused Jesus to die for us.
    No, the preacher said that our sin, when we know it and own it and hate it, is a gift, a gift from God.
    How can that be?

  • American preacher and author James Freeman Clarke once said, “A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.”
    In early America, elected officials were referred to as statesmen for they were more interested in the good of their country than of furthering their careers. Statesmen such as Patrick Henry, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and others devoted their lives in service to their country.

  • It’s Halloween but it’s going to be in the mid-70s. Tomorrow is the first day of November. The days are getting noticeably shorter. I got up at 7:30 this morning and the kitchen windows that face east were dark. If I hadn’t had the column to get in to Molly I would probably still be in bed.

  • By the time I left the newsroom I was ready to rip out my hair or stick a hot poker in my ears.
    All day the noise and commotion drove me to distraction — and it had been a fairly quiet day. I was alone in the pod I share with two other reporters and my phone only rang once.
    You would think the quiet would be conducive to a productive day, but I could barely put two sentences together because of the noise and commotion coming from within, my whirlwind thoughts stirring up fears and anxieties I thought I had put to rest.
