Lessons From A Skunk

skunks are meanWe caught another skunk in our barn. Having never lived somewhere where skunks were a problem like they are here I wasn’t sure what to do. Growing up, we had rats and possums, but not skunks. So catching a rat or possum in a live trap, I knew how to deal with it, but a scary skunk? Not so much.

In fact, despite my rural heritage I knew so little about skunks that Continue reading Lessons From A Skunk

What you want to do right now & what you’ll wish you’d done tomorrow.

What you want to do now and what you'll wish you did tomorrow.This seems like such a simple concept, but it makes and breaks people everyday. The difference between success and failure, joy and shame, wealth and poverty and so many other things lies in the difference between what you want to do now and what you’ll wish you did tomorrow.

The fact that we are happy and they are not makes them feel like victims. Victims of us. Continue reading Generation Selfie

Imago Dei

imageo dei
Imago Dei, the image of God. Michelangelo’s image of God reaching His hand across (not down, not up) to a man – God’s hand no larger and no different than that of the man – has molded much of society’s image of God for centuries. The images are both of flesh, as though Imago Dei is flesh, and yet the Bible consistently refutes that image. Continue reading Imago Dei
