Our yard is one vast nursery.   We have a cardinal nest, a robin nest, a chickadee nest, a catbird nest and a phoebe nest. There is a squirrel nest, a chipmunk nest and a rabbit nest.  I'm sure there are more but those are the...

I listened to a radio preacher today tell his listeners, "Sin is sin because God said so."   I kept waiting for him to answer the question, "Why did Godsay so?"   He never did.  I was reminded of a small child asking his parent why he...

Some of my undergrads asked me if I have any clothes other than blue shirts and khaki pants.  And if I do, why don't I wear them?  Well, I don't.  I have no problem getting dressed in the morning.  I don't stand there and say,...

The only times I can remember not being owned by a dog were my years at school living in a dormitory.  Dogs have been essential to my wholeness.  One of my friends told me it was indicative of a need to be worshiped.  I hope...
