homeless

I think the first time that I was confronted with homelessness was overseas.  I was 12 at the time, and we were travelling through Paris and in different places that we visited there were homeless people in different tunnels—something I hadn’t seen before in my small town in the United States.

Homelessness is tragic, as is poverty, but whenever I start thinking about this subject, especially as it relates to Christianity, I’m struck by who Christ chose to reach out to and I wonder if I’m doing enough…

On November 19, Katy Case entered into a courtship relationship with a young man, with the intent that she would marry him.  I’m very excited for her, in that she has left one stage of life and is preparing to walk into another.

I believe that part of the way to fix the current erosion of the institution of marriage lies in not only speaking out about those that would change the definition, but helping those that are going to be or are in marriages to respect it as well.  To that end, I believe that the courtship movement illustrates a series of good philosophies that any parent should employ to help their children during the transition between child and adult, between single and married.

We Don’t All Want To Watch the Same Movie

Sunset Wedding Kiss

There are a group of moviegoers that meet every Friday at a local movie theater.  Because they are regulars, they get a discounted rate.  Eight out of them usually see Romantic Comedies, while two of them vary from week to week.

The opportunity came to get them special tickets with a group name and image on them.  Since the overwhelming majority of them see Romantic Comedies—and it was started by the eight that usually see Romantic Comedies—they put on their coupons for their discount a couple kissing along with the name of their group.

Over time, the group grew, but still around 70% of the group still liked romantic comedies, and it pretty much defined who they were.
