The truth about pie pans and Planned Parenthood

Pie preparing

  "There's a little white tray with pie dishes on it. And I'm like... hmmm... and I see someone come in with a bottle of something, and there's blood in it, and I'm like... ok... and they emptied it out in a strainer, in the pie dish." - Ex-Procurement Technician Ask me to pick one symbol of maternity—of tenderness, coddling, nurture, and motherly love—and I would probably pick a pie pan. Many of us would, because many of us have had mothers and grandmothers who, when they wanted to smo … [Read more...]

Open letter to Planned Parenthood & Dr. Nucatola supporters:

open letter

As I’ve observed your responses to Dr. Nucatola’s statements this week, I’ve noticed a contradiction in your language. The contradiction can be illustrated in a comment left by an anonymous PP supporter (“Badgers”) in response to my previous post ("What if they were dead puppy parts"):Notice how “Badgers” referred to the ($30-$100) items as, “human fetal tissue”?

Think being alone is tough? Try being a friend.

  “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, ESV)” We just opened signups for the 2015 90-Day Challenge. The process of putting this community together has caused me to think deeply about friendship. Friendship is an endangered species these days. Men are in constant competition with other men, needing to earn mor … [Read more...]

Do men want isolation? At least one does…

lonely man

Deep in the Amazon jungle lives an isolated man, the lone survivor of a remote tribe. He subsists on wild hogs, spider monkeys, and various plants. Nobody knows the name of his tribe or what language he speaks. What Brazilian officials do know, however, is that he is completely alone. He is the last of his people, and for the past fifteen years, at least, he has been considered by most to be the most isolated man in the world. After about ten years of failed attempts, Brazil’s government field a … [Read more...]

"The fish and I were both stunned and disbelieving to find ourselves connected by a line." - William Humphrey in The Armchair Angler I’m not a fly fishing guru. I usually learn something new each time I enter a fly shop or watch a YouTube video. Most of what I’ve learned about the sport has come from a couple friends, Scott and Jason—these two experts (my label, not theirs… they’d hate that description) have patiently fielded my questions about the anatomy of trout streams, the diff … [Read more...]

Video of the aftermath of Heartland EFC’s fire

child firetruck

This past week, just five days after the fire, I met with a 5-year old girl to talk about the fire. Her room in the church was one of the places that burned, and she was having a hard time understanding how fire had permanently damaged that familiar space. We looked at photos of the room, and tried to help her express her feelings about the black smoke on her toy kitchen and the missing ceiling tiles.My own 9-year old daughter, three days after the fire, on the way back from a family dinner … [Read more...]
