Less busyness = better life?

It’s a busy, busy world. The culture is chaotic, your city is bustling, and your life can roll along at a break-neck pace. Sometimes we excuse being so busy. You have to pay the bills, right? Author John Busacker probably agrees, but he also says the mantra ‘busy is better’ is baseless: Busacker has written the…



Grace Unplugged

You don’t have to spend more than 5 minutes watching TV to discover that Christianity, people of faith, and traditional values are not things that Hollywood tends to embrace. In fact, it’s usually the opposite – Christians are often portrayed as bumbling bible-bangers, holier-than-thou hoity-toites, or…


Spending some time “unplugged”

It wasn’t until after my kids were in bed Sunday night that I realized, we hadn’t turned the TV on for days! Not a huge feat, I know, but it’s not been the norm.

Food drives are organized, candlelight vigils spring up across the community, and every person feels a call to get involved and serve the hurting. Then we drift from…


Nothing like we expected

I came across this video from Walter Cronkite in 1967.
