  • Reality of evil most obvious lesson from Newtown

    On Dec. 14, 2012, we watched the news in horror as reports of a mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., were being broadcast on the national news outlets.
    As bits and pieces of information trickled in the horror turned to sorrow as we learned of the 20 first-graders and six educators who were senselessly gunned down by a mentally deranged young man; a man in dire need of help himself, who had somehow fallen through the cracks of societal ignorance and parental denial.

  • Celebrating Advent to prepare for Christ’s return

    Pastor and Chaplain Harold Dinsmore wrote, “Our Lord Jesus coming to earth was a history-changing, life-changing event. Had he not come on that night long ago as a babe in the manger, we would not have had the man Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. The reality of Advent never changes.”
    Most of us identify the “reality” of the Christmas season with traditional decorations and celebrations, and a sparkling tree with colored lights with mounds of brightly wrapped gifts beneath its branches.

  • Sorry, Mr. Mayor, being spiritual just isn’t enough

    In a recent article posted in the religion section of the huffingtonpost.com, newly elected mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, revealed that he is among the “religiously unaffiliated” in an effort to quash rumors that he is “an atheist who is against churches.”
    He acknowledged that he considers himself a man of faith. While “I’m not affiliated with any particular church,” he said, “I do consider myself a spiritual person.”
