I will often monitor our fire department communications to determine if a chaplain is needed at a serious accident, fire, rescue, or suicide attempt.

Much like today, the 1960’s were filled with turmoil, dissension, and disrespect. Unfortunately, we see our country again on the brink of a political and social decline and disorder. During the progressive movement in the late 1940’s Pete Seeger and Lee Hays wrote the song, If I Had a Hammer (The Hammer Song).

But what Hollywood and professional sports often project as “winners” are really unhappy and unfulfilled people.

August 7, 2018 – A Time of Reflection

I was reminded of God’s faithfulness to another group almost 3,500 years ago. Under the leadership of Moses, God had directed the Israelites to endure many hardships during their 40 years in the desert.

Look at the number of despondent people that you encounter every day. Road rage, violence, suicide, drug abuse, and divorce rates among the rich and famous are no different from those of modest means.

They had just reached his daughter’s home when my friend realized that he had forgotten his laptop at the coffee shop in Chicago! He was beside himself with worry and fret.
