Off Road?

I’ve always understood “road trip” as more of an opportunity to explore what’s out there, than a mission to reach a certain destination. Perhaps that comes from my childhood experiences with summer vacation. Usually we’d have some objective in mind, complete with road maps telling us how to get there. But we also had brochures and booklets filling us with the allure of area attractions and sights to see. My parents were the kind who liked to stop and read every historical marker. And, with seven kids in the car, you can imagine  read more »

Fuzzy Listening

I don’t fully understand what it is, but I really like the expression: “Fuzzy Logic”. It’s like the crown prince of oxymorons—two connected words that seem to contradict each other.  read more »

Alone At Last

Let me take you back—way back for some of you—to our adolescence, when we were just discovering that there was something strangely and strongly attractive about that portion of the population that, only months before, used to have “cooties”. When you noticed that certain someone that made your heart skip a beat, you longed to get to know them well—really well. You probably tried to find out everything you could about them, but what you really longed for was the chance to be alone with them—so you could have some private conversation, so you could say things and hear things said that no one else shared except the two of you alone.

Soul Food

OK, let’s start with this: First, I really don’t care what you eat! Second, I’ll be your pastor and your friend no matter how fat or flabby you are. Deal? Third, I’m declaring a holiday from guilt. If you start to feel guilty about your weight, you’re going to ruin a perfectly good spiritual lesson!  read more »

Expect Delays

“Time is money.” Perhaps no other statement so succinctly summarizes American dogma. Even if we free ourselves from the love of money, we’re still convinced that time is a most precious commodity to be maximized, conserved, and prudently managed. We often measure value in temporal increments. We often measure success in ratios of time and productivity. We call it  read more »
