Religious freedom worth protecting

This is my country and I am proud to call myself an American. I believe in the God I worship and am proud to call myself a Christian. I put my trust in both, and I have faith in both. There is a big difference, of course, in the depth of faith and trust, but I believe this country and God are connected.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Take ADHD diagnoses with grain of salt

Q: Our 8-year-old is scheduled to enter third grade at a public school this coming fall. Last year, he did very well; nonetheless, his second grade teacher was convinced he had ADHD. At a meeting with the principal, school psychologist, school social worker and the head of the special education department, lots of pressure was put on us to have him tested and put on medication.

Kathy Bradley: Making and being made by memories

I know these colors so well. These pale and luminous colors of sand and sea and sky. These colors that melt and morph into each other and back again with the rise and fall of the tide, the climb of the moon, the set of the sun. These creamy whites and silvery grays. These liquid blues. I could drown in the colors and never stop breathing.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Overcoming challenges and imitating Christ

The maxim "Imitation is the greatest form of flattery" was almost certainly coined when flattery was more highly thought of than it seems to be today. Yet, several popular versions of the Bible use a related term in 1 Corinthians 4:16, as in the ESV: "I urge you, then, be imitators of me."

Kathy Bradley: Bread, wine and blue

On the Fourth of July, I walk outside and hoist the flag and drive into town to the farmers market, where I buy three fat tomatoes from a man whose accent I can't quite place but whose tent smells fresh and green and whose tomatoes have just the right amount of mottling so that I can tell for certain they have been ripened to that perfect red firmness on the vine. Having found my Holy Grail, I wander around for a few more minutes and end up buying a cantaloupe for $3 from a little boy who is learning ...
