I’m not sure who introduced me to this book first, but it remains a perennial favorite. I do remember it was the go-to novel for eighth graders who had neglected to do a book report. You could read it in a couple of minutes, and your report might be longer than the book. This perennial […]
Another four-year-old post was your ninth most-viewed piece here in 2020. Johnny Hart was someone who managed to integrate this faith and his work life. Even when he was preaching, he was entertaining. Which explains why, 13 years after his death, his comic strip continues with two of his grandsons and a daughter in charge. […]
Just a reminder for those who disparage meat eaters… Hey, lighten up – it’s a joke! (Disclaimer: These days it seems there is nothing that someone doesn’t take offence with. If you have been offended, hurt or traumatized by today’s image, send me an email. I can provide the name of a counselor who […]
I downloaded this the same February day in 1998 that I discovered yesterday’s post. At times I do wonder just how much of Jesus’ teaching his followers really understood when they first heard it.

I’d give credit, but a quick online search convinced me that authorship is unknown. I know I didn’t write it […]
I wanted to post this Thursday when I heard the news of Stuart Mclean’s death. People were talking about it, and I wanted in on the conversation. When I travel though, Internet access isn’t always immediate, so I decided it would have to wait until today. It was the news no-one wanted to hear, though […]
Some days, especially at the start of the work week, what you really need is a good joke. I’m sorry to disappoint you. Maybe I’m not at my best on Mondays. In my defence though, I thought it was funny.
