This is the parent page of all of my posts made during the second quarter of 2021. May they speak to you of all the things you need most to hear, and transform your life in ways that serve your life in the deepest, truest and best sense of the term, forever! Amen! May it be so!

Wars are fought
as the imposition 
of one group's will
upon another.

"Just getting along"
has never been of interest
to those who get high
on "Taking our enemy's 
women and horses and personal treasure,
and riding away with them before his eyes,
and then beheading him
and leaving him for the buzzards to devour"
--Genghis Khan (Or words to that effect).

Nothing changes until people do.
And that means growing up.
The world waits for the human population
to grow up.
And we die before that happens.
You see the problem, I'm sure.

We are stuck with killing and being killed.
Because we will not grow up,
and nothing can make us.

That leaves us with being as civil
as the circumstances allow us to be,
and carving out what civil-ization
we can achieve among warning nation-tribes
throughout what remains of time.

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
