The Loss of Identity

I grew up before television, computers and a host of modern time occupying technological conveniences. Washing machines had wringers on the side.

What Happened to Colin Kaepernick?

A young, happy, smiling 4th grader once wrote: “I’m 5’2” and 91 pounds. Good athelet. I think in 7 years I will be between 6 ft – to 6’4 inches and 140 pounds. I hope to go to a good college in faith. Then go on to the pros and play for the niners of…

The Natural Order of Things

It has been a long time since the philosophers of days gone by, observed nature and came away with perceptions of truth.
