A simple question for all who have some doubts about  this deep theological point:  If we are made in the image of God then what does the following video tell us? OK it’s not really proof that God laughs and I have no footnotes to prove the biblical sources for this theory but tell me […]

Pursuant to one […]

Prayer has been on my mind this week as we faced a number of struggles as a family battling through the “cure” for my wife’s breast cancer. It seems to me to be a strange way to make a person well this chemo therapy, but we have put our trust in others and are moving […]

It was a week to reflect back on the passage of time. My son turned thirty and as most of us of a “certain age” look back on these types of occasions and wonder where in the world did those years go. Muhammad Ali offers a reflection on how we grow, or we rot as […]

More insight from Mother Teresa on what God wants: God wants our will and our desire to be for him, for our family, for our children, for our brethren, and for the poor. God wants to show his greatness by using nothingness. God wants our will and our desire to be for him, for our […]

Here is my  favorite Mother Teresa quote. It offers a hint at What God is Looking for from us as his good and faith filled servants. Mother Teresa encourages us: To touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or […]
