Steve Ellison: When Your Pot Runs Dry

Jesus made His first public appearance and performed His first miracle at a wedding.  John 2:2 tells us that He showed up there because He was invited.  Jesus ought to be invited to every wedding, keeping in mind that it is up to the creature to conform his ideas of marriage to those of the Creator.  With that in mind, Jesus should be a welcomed guest at every wedding.  ...

Often we may ask ourselves what is wrong with these nuts. Often we run across the rude, crude and ugly. But when tragic happens, we all come together ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Chanie's Puzzling Poem

Ronnie Joice was in a bar in north London when he spied a poem tacked to the wall. The more he studied it, the more it revealed and, suddenly, he was floored. I don’t need to tell you it has gone viral, cheering people up particularly in England, but it is fun to know it was written by an 11 th -grader at an all-girls school in New York.
