  • On last week, my article tackled the subject of pastors around the country marrying same-sex couples.

     

     I went around the community and asked pastors, deacons and parishioners how they felt about this – now that the law has passed that same-sex couples can be legally married in South Carolina.

    I am sure that everyone has seen what’s going on in Baltimore. A lot of times when I turn on the television to watch morning news, there’s a killing of some black man by police. 

    I have noticed that all over the nation people are standing up for their rights, for their beliefs. In some cases, it gets so bad it becomes a riot.

  • Ahhh, welcome spring – my favorite time of year.
    It is as if the earth comes back alive. Colors of nature transform before our very eyes from browns to vivid greens and yellows.
    Bees suddenly appear buzzing throughout cherry blossoms. Bradford pear trees are striking with their seemingly snow-laden branches. And grass begins its ritual of upward mobility.
    Children’s laughter fill playgrounds. Music blasts from open car windows. Flip flops replace boots. Shorts replace sweaters.

  •  I will go into the new year without all of me.

    I’ve got my eyes, ears, nose and mouth. Got my arms and legs and even both feet.

    What will be missing won’t be visible to the naked eye – at least not anymore.

    My body will be less one gland – my thyroid.

    I’ve been dodging the bullet for the past three years when a lump in my neck started to surface. It was small then and not causing any trouble.

  •  As 2014 quickly comes to an end, we are looking forward to the holidays with great anticipation. We are planning what we are going to eat, gifts to buy and functions we are going to attend.

    “We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generationthe glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.” – Psalm 78:4, ESV.

    In the wake of the Dec. 12, 2012, Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in Newtown, Conn., a group of pastors in Chesterfield County began to meet, pray, and seek the counsel of the almighty God.

    As a career computer guy, I realize that I’m frequently the guy in the “I know a computer guy” conversations that surround people talking about how their computers don’t work.  

  •  Wouldn’t it be a miracle if the cat or dog that we left beside the road to starve, managed to survive, come back home and return the favor? Then again, what pet would be so dumb to come back to where it wasn’t wanted in the first place?

     

    If we the people can cover up millions of defective products, why can’t we the people go back and uncover how many accidents were actually caused by the defective product rather than blame the accidents on driver error?
