Finding the Grace in Flannery

photo-1414608808981-2e2977ed40d5

“There are ages in which it is possible to woo the reader; there are others when something more drastic is necessary. . . . to the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost blind you draw large and startling figures.”[1] Flannery O’Connor Increasingly lauded in literary and now Christian circles, Flannery O’Connor’s art...

Days of Reckoning – Mortgages, Football and The Donald

IMG_20160105_082949_hdr (1)

Tom plays golf at the same club as me. He works in finance for Hershey Foods, the folks who invented chocolate. Tom’s car has a bumper sticker you’ll appreciate. It simply says $18,000,000,000 and that sticker is on top of one that says $17,000,000,000. He told me he has a new one to put on...

Can you answer this question about the Bible?

Hands holding Bible on a wooden desk background.

Looking over the homeschool marketplace, I would make two observations. It is dominated by Christians. They don’t value learning the Bible, based on the money they spend on curriculum. So, I asked some pastors and Christian leaders, “Why is it important for children to learn the content of the Bible?” This is not an attempt...

Someone’s Precious Baby

1443732603-ad235562-2e55

by Laurie Detweiler October is National Learning Disabilities Month. It is a time when our focus is shifted to education, specifically on raising awareness about learning disabilities and the achievements those with these differences have accomplished. I wish we called it Nation Learning Aspiration Month. Not a week goes by that I am not asked...

Another School Year Begins

vpsa crest

It’s Labor Day, and Laurie and I find ourselves in a ritual I expect many easterners experience—returning from the “shore,” as we call it. We were in Cape May, New Jersey, for the day and now are crawling home at 10 mph. This is not our routine, our ritual, but it’s evident that it is...

My Wonder Years

Pepin.Kaye

One sunny April morning my boys and I, along with eight strangers, climbed aboard an inflatable raft on the windward coast of Oahu. It was a Zodiac – the sturdy rubber raft that was birthed after the sinking of the Titanic and eventually became popular with the military. We had been living in Hawaii for...

August Angst

woman-crazy hair

AHHHHH! August! What does that mean? Panic? Pain? Squeeze in a few more sunny days at the beach? It’s the stark reality that this train is running down the track and careening to the start of another school year. Are you ready? Am I ready? No … I never feel ready. For me, August seems...

Government… The How & Which

Dr. Troy Gibson

The question “should there be this law” and “must there be this law” is not a trivial game of semantics. It is foundational to whether we will be a republican styled polity or not. The Constitution does not permit or require every law you like. Nor does it prohibit every law you hate. If you...

Thoughts on Statistics, the “Rogue” Math Class

Screen Shot 2015-08-05 at 3.31.49 PM

Consider this question: “If you had it to do over again, would you have children?” This question was posed in the syndicated column of Ann Landers in newspapers quite a few years ago. After collecting responses for a period of time, her column headlined, “70% OF PARENTS SAY KIDS NOT WORTH IT.” What would you...

The Power of Truth and the Online Classroom

Trisha Williams

Trisha Williams Though all the winds of doctrine were let loose to play upon the earth, so Truth be in the field, we do injuriously by licensing and prohibiting to misdoubt her strength. Let her and Falsehood grapple; who ever knew Truth put to the worse, in a free and open encounter. JOHN MILTON, Areopagitica...
