The importance of leadership

The most used definition of religion is, and this is not the only definition, "Any specific system of belief, worship, conduct, etc., often involving a code of ethics and a philosophy." What that means to me is that if we believe in a higher power, we also act and understand like we believe in that outside force that connects us to the infinite. In my humble thought process, if I call someone "doctor" then I accept his or her credentials and allow him or her to heal or cure. The same process can be easily applied to a pilot, a ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Raising kids in 'the good old days'

In the 1960s, as part of an overall, culture-wide paradigm shift, a sea-change took place concerning our collective understandings concerning the rearing of children. The two fundamental questions in that regard are and have always been: (1) What is the nature of a child? and (2) What constitutes a parent's responsibilities toward a child?

Kathy Bradley: Missing October, recalling dust

I almost missed October. My favorite month. I almost missed it by spending days and days indoors avoiding dust and pollen and all manner of things that inhibit breathing. I almost missed the exquisitely slow sunsets that bleed out over the cotton fields, transforming the exploding bolls into shimmering globes of pink and gold. I almost missed the deliciously cool dusks that slide down the sky like a satin negligee as soon as the last color disappears behind the horizon. I almost missed the first sycamore leaves curling and crisping and the last of the wildflowers bursting forth.

It's the little things that count … always. That's true when it comes to being a citizen, an employee and a spouse. It's also true of being a parent.

Doing what God wants us to do

According to an article I read - and if you believe it - 90 percent of our population is in great need of therapy in one form or another. And if you are around a lot of folks for any length of time, I believe you will agree that there are truly some strange people running around the neighborhood. Let's agree that that is the case and there is help, in many forms, available at the book stores and counseling methods. Getting help does not mean that we are incapable of sound action and good thinking. I have always thought that ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Has God come through for you?

Several years ago, I watched as a network news anchor talked about the beautiful weather predicted for that day. There had been a long period of poor weather - rain and unusually cool - and folks wanted to get outside. Who could blame them? Most prefer clear and sunny to wet and cold. The newsman then suggested that God had "come through" for the people of New York because their day promised to be clear and sunny.

Kathy Bradley: As I lay dying

As I lay dying - and by dying, I mean in the colloquial Southern sense of suffering from a physical malady nowhere close to terminal, but so irritating as to have left one unable to imagine for even a moment the possibility of a world without the present misery - I was able to muster up enough lucidity and self-pity to remember that the day just broken was, in fact, my birthday and that I could not recall ever having been ill on my birthday and that it was, well, patently unfair to be ill on one's birthday.
