  • Heat raises the question: ‘what color is my footprint’

     Heat —it surrounds us, aggravates us, fuels our conversation, dominates our news, impacts our entire earth—gives us pause to think.

  • For the love of pigs

    He came running from the cemetery screaming…dried blood still all over his arms and legs from where it appeared he had been intentionally cutting himself with sharp rocks-maybe hoping to ease some of the emotional pain that he was enduring.

    Upon seeing the boat from the hillside, he ran to Jesus from the tombs because that was his home — his residency since being banished there-banished from cookouts, family get-togethers and all other functions of society.

  • Carroll County graduation 2012: Letter from a parent

    Carroll County High School graduated my youngest son last month, marking the second time I have celebrated a child’s successful transition from this high school to college.

    My boys did not have to go to college to be successful, of course. They could have turned their entrepreneurial skills into an edgy tech startup and installed me as a puppet president with benefits. And a meal plan. They did not. Instead, following their mother’s advice, they chose college.

  • Jesus asked followers to take risks in their life

     When it comes to traveling, my oldest daughter thinks she’s cursed.

    I don’t know about “cursed,” but she definitely has had her share of mishaps.

    Last summer she and granddaughter Caroline took a trip from their home in Virginia to visit my other daughter in Charlotte, N.C.

    The three of them went to Charleston, S.C. and Caroline barfed, which put a damper on their plans. Then Caroline stayed sick, ending Alison’s plans for a side trip to visit a friend on the way home.
