Every  Presidential inauguration is always followed by multiple inaugural balls--sometimes as many as a dozen or more.   Celebrating is important to us.  Yet it doesn't seem to be merely a human activity.  In Luke 15 Jesus regales us with stories of redemption and lifts...

The New England forests are decorated with vernal pools laden with choirs of frogs that fill the night air with songs of romance.  As spring wanes and summer makes her entrance the pools will vanish along with the spring flowers nourished by their water.   Each...
