The Treacherous Image

On Monday, August 14th, 2017, a crowd of several hundred rioters in Durham, North Carolina, pulled down a nearly one hundred year old statue of an unknown Confederate soldier. As they did, the mob chanted “No Cops, No KKK, No Fascist USA.” As if the anarchist timbre of the crowd wasn’t unsettling enough, the scenes of near hysteria that followed the toppling of the statue were truly disturbing. As soon as the bent form of the statue hit the ground, several members of the...

Mosul is free! Sort of.

This is going to be an unusual post. Usually short with some unusual images, two, taken with my Samsung Note 5. I am just back from Iraq, no more than 24 hour from writing this. I have LOTS to tell you and share by way of photographs, too. But I wanted to address the big news, recently released, that the fight against ISIS in Iraq is over, and the city of Mosul is free! Well, not exactly. (The stairs leading up to the tomb of Jonah. Iraq, 2017) Among the many places that I...

Joy

It’s a new year again. Among all the gifts given and received this Christmastide, the one thing that most people want, at least according to the National Institute of Health – is happiness, joy. And why not? The first gift of the nativity given by the heavenly hosts to the shepherds was the “good news of great joy” because “a savior has been born for you, who is Messiah and Lord.” That is good news, and yet during the Christmastide so many of us fall into depression,...

You will be a blessing to others

  This past November 8th, 2016, we Americans were blessed. After almost two years of argument and tension, we stepped into the voting booth and changed, without violence or terror, the president and political party that will govern our country. This is no small accomplishment. I say this not to celebrate the victory of one candidate over another, but rather to take stock of the great blessing that is our orderly and peaceful transfer of power. That we as Americans are...
