Better Than Iron Man

Dr. Gary Parker in Sierra Leone (2001)In Iron Man 2, Stark declared that he has done the world a big favor: "I have successfully privatized world peace!"  He (Iron Man) single handedly made the world a safer place.

I wish life were that simple. It would be incredible if one creative and benevolent individual would eradicate world hunger and poverty, while at the same time introduce lasting peace, joy and mercy.

Come to think of it, there was one teacher who started a movement a little over 2000 years ago in a dusty Middle Eastern town.  He taught his followers radical ideas on loving God and ...

A Chord of Three Strands

There's no doubt about it -- relationships can be tough.  Sometimes I think life would be so much easier without people!  Seriously though, most days I long for relationship.  Perhaps it's because God created us for relationship.

Not Just A Statistic!

Jean Valjean 24601Life Issues® with Brad Mattes reminds me of the power behind numbers.  It's not just a digit ... it's a life
