When Life-Saving Rules Make You Want to Die

The problem here is that I don’t know which rules are more important than others. Science may give us some info on this. However, your location, your town’s population density, your medical history, and your age, job, or whatever else may be equally important. Just be aware. Keep in mind your area’s hospital capacity. Keep in mind your neighbor’s worries. Keep in mind your obligations. Keep in mind the legitimate authority of the government. Keep it all in mind, and then make your decisions.

So, to my readers: Wear a mask, or at least be ready to wear a mask. Learn how to be kind to people who have different opinions about what they value. Be kind. Don’t be harsh. Be ready to serve. Don’t be judgmental. Celebrate your freedom, especially your freedom to love and serve one another.

A Series For Christians, Citizens, Brothers, and Riots

The last series of mine (here, here, here, here, and here) was perhaps the first time in my life that I have ever been absolutely and completely alone in my opinion about a very important matter. I’ve been alone in some things, but not like that. But from what I can tell from my stats…

A Plea For Each of Us to Heal Our Nation

As a friend, hear my plea: Pray for peace. Pray for the ability to forgive. Pray for brotherly love. Pray as you mourn. Pray that justice in our broken hearts will roll down like waters and cleanse our nation. But above all, pray with hope.

Have Mercy

What kind of a person has a baby that we find in a toilet? Perhaps it’s a person alone enough, poor enough, money-less enough, friendless enough, and helpless enough to have a baby on a toilet.
