Change the World THE THEOLOGY OF DAD - October 13, 2014 ... what has six years brought? Chaos in Iraq and Ukraine. It's economy is in turmoil. Unemployment has skyrocketed along with its debt. This is what happens when you lack humility. It's hard to accept the world on its own terms. There is sickness, poverty, ignorance, pollution and hatred. Who can stop it? Only God, of course, and He chooses to work through people on a one-on-one basis. People who can't even run their own lives (me, all of us), how do we ...http://thetheologyofdad.blogspot.com/2014/10/change-world.html
What Is This Joy ? SPIRITUAL DEVOTIONAL - October 1, 2014 ... McFerrin's " Don't Worry, Be Happy"; Will Pharrell's " Happy Song." Okay, but re-read this carefully . . We are, guaranteed only "the pursuit" of happiness. No one is guaranteeing us a continual state of true Happiness, from cradle to grave. I wonder, will all this emphasis on continual happiness actually produce more unhappy people? How many people out there are worried and unhappy, because they find themselves unable to tap into that elusive state of ...http://spiritualdevotional.blogspot.com/2014/10/what-is-this-joy.html
Eric Lee: A Man of Faith HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - September 8, 2014 I preached this morning at the funeral of Eric Lee, the son of an old friend and the brother of Pamela Ho, who joined the board of Catholic Christian Outreach just before I left. As you can tell from the homily, it was a great privilege. His mother told me "Eric was born with a good heart." This seems to be no less than the truth. A visitor to London knew that the magnificent St. Paul's Cathedral was the work of Sir Christopher Wren, and that its renowned architect was ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2014/09/eric-lee-man-of-faith.html
"The Truth About Downs Syndrome" SCELATA - August 30, 2014 ... syndrome can experience more happiness and potential for success than Mr. Dawkins seems to appreciate. There are, of course, many challenges facing families caring for children with Down syndrome, including a high likelihood that their children will face surgery in infancy and Alzheimer's disease in adulthood. But at the same time, studies have suggested that families of these children show levels of well-being that are often greater than ...http://scelata.blogspot.com/2014/08/the-truth-about-downs-syndrome.html
Failure Is Good FRESHLY PRESSED: EDITORS' PICKS - August 25, 2014 Failure is inevitably linked with art – and life for that matter. Well, it's also linked to success if you think about it. To put it a little harshly; if we don't experience failures it's because we don't live – or we don't create, when talking about arts. And if we don't dare to make failure we will never succeed, either. Life and art is about jumping from an airplane without knowing how a parachute really works, but hoping ...http://munchow.wordpress.com/2014/08/25/failure-is-good/
The Christian Family SPIRITUAL DEVOTIONAL - July 10, 2014 ... up in a family of believers. We were "nominally" Christian-- that is, we attended church only until I had received my First Communion, and my Confirmation in the church. Then, we quit church. I was told, "We already did that." Christian families attend church regularly. They do not consider it a childhood rite of passage, to be outgrown. Maybe we quit church so abruptly, because my grandmother had died; and she had been the one to keep a wary eye on us as a family. My grandmother was the one ...http://spiritualdevotional.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-christian-family.html
Contraception Chit-Chat CRISIS MAGAZINE - July 7, 2014 The very word Birth-Prevention would strike a chill into the public, the instant it was blazoned on headlines…. They dare not call it by its name, because its name is very bad advertising. ~ G.K. Chesterton It wasn't until we arrived at the pediatrician's office that I realized I'd forgotten something to read. We were on time for my daughter's appointment, but there's always a wait anyway—docs are busy, I get that—so I usually bring along a book or the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/aHn9oNTNQD8/contraception-chit-chat
