  • 'We all is self-righteous'

    In the newsroom we have a counter where people put doughnuts and cookies for everyone to share.

    Today someone set out a container of humungous cookies. Each cookie is 480 calories with 23 grams of fat. For those keeping score, one cookie is 12 Weight Watchers points, which is more than half my daily allotment.

  • The rest of the story

    Remember this name: Mordecai Ham. I'll tell you at the end who he is.

    Meanwhile, let me tell you about Phil Munsey, a guy I heard on the radio the other day. He wrote a book last year called "Legacy Now: Why Everything About You Matters."

    The point of his book is that big or small, everything in our lives matters and everything we do has eternal consequences.

  • On the wings of pigs

    A few years ago I wrote about seeing a pig fly. What I meant by that was seeing the surprising answer to a prayer, something I thought I'd only see "when pigs fly." In other words, never.

    But God seems to delight in never and impossible. A woman who called the newsroom last week reminded me of that.

    She didn't want her name in the paper, but she wanted to tell someone her story. Someone who would believe her and not laugh at her. Someone who believes that God can and does do strange and wonderful and impossibly improbable things.
