Blest Be The Tie

I have a confession to make: I am a Baptist.  I’ve spent most of my life around Baptists. Over the years I’ve discovered that in Baptist churches there are a lot of things that are common to almost all of them.  Just like you can walk into a McDonald’s anywhere in the world and order a Big Mac and know it will taste the same, you can go to most Baptist churches and find a lot of the same things on...

Your Life in Six Words

It started as a contest on the online writer’s magazine SMITH.  Readers were challenged to write their own biography in six words.  They gave the classic example of the mini-masterpiece penned by Ernest Hemingway:  “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Readers were encouraged to send in their examples and the best of the best would be published.  15,000 people responded.

He Had A Dream

Today we celebrate and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King.  In preparation for a series on our website, we posted the full text of that speech on Sunday.  (Read it here.) It was interesting to read it again.  There is so much to that speech that is not captured in the familiar sound bytes you hear over and over again.  The first thing that jumps out at you is how our language changes.  Forty-three years...
