The Family of One

Dear Beautiful Humans,

The other night my son Jacob who lives in San Diego was having dinner at my parents home in the Los Angeles area with their best friends in the world Pat and Ronnie, my cousin Richard, and my brother Jimmy, his wife Elaine, and their daughters Sammie, Casey, and Drew who were all on the West Coast visiting from Chicago.

Number One Reason For Divorce

Researchers have discovered the number one cause of divorce: marriage. Yes, the legalistic nature of this religious institution is being torn apart by the freedom that is permeating western culture.

God’s Other Son

Dear Gospel Loving People Who Love People Because of the Gospel,

Last week the U.S. was embroiled in a conversation about bigotry because of the comments of radio and TV host Don Imus about the women’s basketball team at Rutgers University.
