Far away or right inside our homes …..   Our web-sight was hacked over the holidays. We apologize for the the semitic profanity displayed on this page by the hacker who proudly signed their work. We take Freedom of Religion for granted in the United States of America, sadly that is not the case over much of the rest of the world.

Every so often, too often really, we are going to be faced with life trials, tribulations and the inconvenient trespasses of others.

Perhaps we really never were very good at it. As a result of this societal ineptitude, we continue to involuntarily bury ourselves in fields of quicksand while wondering or even screaming as we’re sinking, “what went wrong?” There have always been those individuals among us who have been very disciplined and adept at… read more

Appealing Character ~ By JC Calkins

The things of life which hurt us most severely are often the same as those which ultimately offer to help us to grow essentially. Character might well be the most underrated of all human attributes. When we meet a person of good and strong character we are much more inclined to be tolerant of their many other quirks and blemishes, because we value the moments of dependable character more than we are offended by their momentary absences or overshadows.

Consider ~ JC Calkins

If you wanted to learn something about someone you’d only heard of, would you: 1. Just read their authorized biography 2. be influenced by from someone who’d read that biography 3. be taught by one who might have met the subject and who’s read the book or 4. interview the subject of the biography yourself? These are 4 personal choices which we are rarely offered. However, the most famous entity who ever lived does still offer each of us these… read more
