A friend died this weekend, and my first thought was, 'Did I encourage him enough?'  I heard the news of his passing and I immediately wondered, 'Did I do enough to lift him up, to let him know that I believed in him, prayed for him, was there to support him or listen...

Last Friday night (August 2, 2019) something awful happened in a place where happiness should have reigned. Young men grew angry, no one seems to know why. Shots rang out and a young woman died and now one has answers. Death - a senseless loss of life because anger wen...

 Yesterday we established our desire to live in the Kabad Kingdom, a place where honoring, lifting up, magnifying and giving weighty worship to God and worthy respect to our fellow humans is our way of life.  Today we want to begin to address the 'human side' of the Te...
