More, Most, or Maybe?

More, Most, or Maybe? Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks was the right side for me. The experience was worth more than the cost of an education based in sociology and community. This was especially true because radio was primitive, television was definitely an infant, and high tech meant we had a…

The View From The Pew

I may have titled this piece wrong. Is the church pew still relevant? With the “Covid” and all the other factors (including some “governmental” interference), it seems that we may be in danger of losing a time-honored tradition that goes back nearly two thousand years. But there may be some pictures in your mind of…

Expand Your World

Has the old Covid-19 got you down? Are you cowering in the corner of imagined safety from the dread disease? Are you still engaged in the argument whether to mask or not to mask? If you answered yes, or if you answered no, to any of the questions, I have great news for you! There…

Embraced By The Spirit was published by Life Bridge Books in the autumn of 2005. It was not a best seller. In fact, it was an almost no-seller.

We were and are “The Incredibles!” We are incredible because we are “The Adjustables!” Our kind dates back to the first century AD (or CE if you…

Who Sez You Gotta have A License? The Gov’ment Man, That’s Who!

Just the other day, I was thinking (yes, once in a while I think I think!) and it crossed my mind to make a list of things I can do without a license provided by some level of government. I came up with a very short list, if a list it can be called. Meanwhile,…

Connection Is the Way to Have Power

Electric switches not connected have no power.  Animals without connection perish and become extinct.  People cannot exist alone.  Even a hermit has to have a sense of connection to something. With the advent of the telegraph, radio, the telephone, television, cell phones, and the Internet, human connection is now possible to a degree unknown in…
