5 Truths Children Won't Know About Marriage Unless We Teach Them

Marriage is under attack in our culture. From the sexual revolution to the rise of divorce to the fight over same-sex marriage, this precious institution is being bombarded from all sides. And our children are right in the middle of it. Hollywood, the media, our school systems, and sometimes even fellow Christians are constantly portraying an untrue version of marriage to today's children and teens. And it's taking its toll. Most girls spend lots of time imagining their fairy tale … [Read more...]

The important thing is the family. If you can keep the family together–and that’s the backbone of our whole business, catering to families–that’s what we hope to do.  ~ Walter Elias Disney Over the Labor Day weekend, I talked to a few friends who are traveling to the "Happiest PLace on Earth" in the coming weeks.

Leadership Lesson from Obama and the Syria “Red Line”

082313SyriaChemicalAttack_full_600

It's called an ultimatum. Usually frustrated people make them. It's what President Obama gave to Syria when he said the use of chemical weapons would be crossing a "red line." The goal of the cruise missile strikes the United States is planning to carry out in Syria is to restore the smudged “red line” that President Obama drew a year ago against the use of poison gas. (The New York Times) I've seen it a lot from teachers, parents (myself included), and leaders of all sorts. We get … [Read more...]

The Isolationist Immigration Gospel of the Evangelical Immigration Table

immigration-reform-press-conference

Although I have great respect for many of the evangelical leaders who signed on to the original letter from the Evangelical Immigration Table, I have a few problems with how the evangelical label is being exploited for political gain. You can read some of my thoughts on that here. I had some hopes that we might actually see meaningful immigration reform early on in the process. [ See my post Immigration 2.0: I Want to Believe! ] I still haven't given up hope, but I am far more aligned with … [Read more...]
