Slight Way: The Right Way, the Wrong Way, and the Slight Way

My Dad is always teaching me something new. Our family has always had a saying that there are three ways to do a home improvement project: the right way, the wrong way, and the Reynolds’ way. The Reynolds’ way is to get the job done, but in a manner unanticipated by the instruction manual. At [Read More…]

The Best Time to Be Alive Is Now

Jesus is Lord. That is true today. It was true the day they crucified the Lord. When we look at the “news” we are looking at the parts of the story that history will most often forget. Nobody much recalls who was the most popular court celebrity in the days of Caesar Augustus, but everyone [Read More…]

Listening to Lucy: The Short Way to God

The know-nothing and the pseudo-intellectual are the same personality type in different zip codes. The know-nothing cannot be taught, because even the possibility he might be wrong enrages him. The pseudo-intellectual cannot be taught, because he already knows the truth and has the credentials to prove it. This is even true of the pseudo-Socratic personality [Read More…]

Education and Finding a Home

Ever wonder if anyone cares more about education than the business of education? After thirty years of teaching, I can promise that most teachers do. Few teachers work for the money in elementary, junior high, or college. Most are dedicated and work harder than their contract demands. Teachers and professors face administration that grows bigger every [Read More…]

Don’t Give Up Your Education to a Puppy Monkey Baby School

The worst commercial ever may have been the Super Bowl commercial where Mountain Dew decided we wanted to see a “puppy monkey baby.” I like puppies . . .everybody likes puppies. I don’t like monkeys particularly, but there are plenty of people who think everything is funnier with chimps. I love babies and with the exception of Planned Parenthood [Read More…]

Educaton and Integrity

Education is possible, but not if we lack integrity. Isn’t it obvious that we need integrity in education? Don’t we need integrity everywhere? Being against a lack of integrity seems as fatuous as the position of the pastor my family knew who summed up a sermon as being “about sin.” When asked to summarize his [Read More…]

Liberal Arts Education Needs Brave Defenders

Civilization is hard to build and easy to lose. Without courage and conviction, much we now take for granted, peace, relative liberty, and civility will be lost. One mark of the health of a civilization is the value it gives the liberal arts. At every level of education from kindergarten to college, we need the [Read More…]

Great Leaders: Thankful for the Virtues of Seven Women

We need leaders. Talent we can find, but good leaders have talent with character. I have been blessed to be surrounded at all points in my career and education with leaders, listing seven men was difficult enough, but choosing seven women was nearly impossible. Having a mother and a wife who lead made this list [Read More…]

Cleanup the University: Starting with Us

At dear old State U, you might find a Christian engineering professor, carefully quiet, and more than one Christian coach on the playing fields, but you will be hard pressed to find the views of the world’s two billion Christians elsewhere. Much of undergraduate education, at even our best schools, is not worth the money [Read More…]
