Making the country a better place

The old man walked into the museum. He was tall and stood erect, wore glasses and had lively eyes. He carried a cardboard Prince Albert cigar box with him and set it down on top of the copying machine.
He took off his cap and said he’d seen the notice in the paper asking all World War II veterans to come by and tell their stories for the upcoming war exhibit.
And opening the cigar box, he began. He told us he’d never talked to anyone about his war experiences.

Letting go of hatred and unforgiveness

How much grace does it take to love our enemies? Well, that is a good question. Tragedies are happening all around us and it’s true we are very heart-broken and alarmed, but what if one day our family is harmed? I admit that I do not always have the character of Christ when I’m being threatened or provoked to anger. Many times, my first reaction is to retaliate because that’s a strong part of our human nature. I realize that people need to be punished for their
