My tendency is to use this site to post sermons I’ve preached. I’ve rarely used it for social commentary (other than what’s in my sermons), but I’m feeling compelled to do so today. I pray you will be able to walk with me for a moment. At the end of this road, we may not reach the same destination, but I hope that in walking together, perhaps new insights can be gained by both of us.

I grew up believing in the democratic system and believing that the elected leaders, whether from “our party” or not, had the best interest of the people at heart. Sunday dinner around grandmother’s table included aunts and uncles with a range of views, mostly Republicans then, though this has changed over time.

Even so, we watched the State of the Union annually and showed respect to those who served our country. SOTU Collage
