Evangelicals, seduced in past decades by the conservative Republican party, are seen as a political bloc more than anything else at times. This is even self-described in Christianity Today as they reported the group opposing in large percentage Obama’s healthcare law. With the Supreme Court ruling that Obamacare is Constitutionally […]
One of my favorite thinking spots is this waterfall hike I used to frequent near Redding, CA. The mile straight uphill was always worth the climb to the cool falls and stream. Contemplation is important, indeed. I am still looking for a new thinking spot since this photo was taken […]
