Poles are great for marking things, especially locations hard to see. Take shopping, for instance. We’re in a store, and the shelves obscure our view of what’s beyond the nearest display. We ...

What would our lives be like without Jesus in the world? That’s right. If Christmas were a dream in an unknown eye, no more than wishful thinking about what might have been, how would the world ...

Some people say we can’t see God. That’s right. They tell us we have no way to tell the intents of an invisible being that doesn’t bother making his presence known on the earth. They go so ...

Winter is a time of rest for the landscape. Many types of trees lose their leaves, flowers no longer bloom (or even die back), and the grass becomes brown and brittle. That seems like a good ...
