How to Find Silence in Your Busy Life

About a year ago, my wife and I were fortunate to buy a small cabin by a creek. It is a wonderful setting.

Outside a small town, with a gently flowing creek behind it, and cow pastures in front, it is a nice place to get away.

The best thing about it, though, is it has no internet, no television, and no phone service.

It has helped me learn how to slow down my life and relish the solitude of silence.


What to Say about Your Valentine

When I was in grade school, I always hoped a certain blonde haired girl would drop a Valentine in my box. Each year from first through fourth grade I held my breath.

I never got the Valentine.

I used to think it scarred me for life, that Valentine’s Day would always be a day of dread and regret.

Then, one Sunday, I had lunch at someone’s house and I knew the rest of my life would be different.

I had found my Valentine, even if she didn’t know it.


Why Everyone Should Leave the Church

The church is dead. The church is dying. The church is sick.

Turn all the churches into community centers. Repurpose them into condos. Tear them down and use the land for something worthwhile.

All they do is talk about fairytales. They just take people’s money. They are all hypocrites.

Everyone should just leave the church and be done with it.

The church is dead.
