Step one: Resist the temptation to advance quickly. Learning the basics is important, even if it seems uncomfortable to tread the same small steps over and again. In the beginning, an ice skater may dream of quad loops and Y spins, those fancy jumps and step sequences that set a crowd ablaze…

In the Gospel of Matthew, the account of Jesus’ teaching on prayer is found right in the middle of the Sermon on the Mount. One way to understand the sermon is to see it as a description of the character of the kingdom of God.

I don’t know about you, but I certainly see it in myself— a tendency toward entitlement and ingratitude. In a world that convinces us that we should have everything that we could ever want without the smallest amount of

There is little doubt that in the mind of most, slavery was an unjust part of the history of this Great Nation. Symbols such as the Confederate Flag in front of State Capitols and the use of the term Rebel as a school mascot have justly been removed. However, they are still part of our histo…

At the Homestead City Council meeting on 2/19/20, TAB #7 presented the mindboggling proposal to use 100 acres in Homestead for what will essentially be a vehicle dumpster, a multimillion-dollar project dipping deep into the taxpayer’s pockets. The project is estimated to generate a pitiful $…

In scripture, the theme of sleep is a recurring one that serves to provide some insight into how we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” and can serve to represent a range of spiritual modes, from complete trust in God to lack of devotion. Let us consider the nature of sleep to help us furth…

Late last year, the House passed a series of bills banning offshore energy development, a significant source of employment for blue-collar Americans. Fueled by environmental fervor, these lawmakers are willing to sacrifice opportunities for their most important constituents.

I have been teaching economics since 1967 -- 40 years of it at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. During that interval, economic reality has not changed. Just as Galileo's law about the independent influence of gravity on falling objects has not changed, neither have the fundament…

Blind spots are places around us in which we lack awareness, vision or sight. One of the most common blind spots we face every day is the right back corner of our vision we encounter while driving our cars. It’s where the cars around us can’t be seen in our rear view and side mirrors, making…
