  • 'We all is homeless'

    I promised Gator that I would write about him. His real name is Mike, and he lives in the woods in a camp with some other people.

    I only met him briefly, which is par for the course for reporters. We get to know people long enough to get what we need for a story, but often not long enough to care.

    I'm talking about myself here, and the truth is I'm not proud of it. But I'm telling you this because God's been chipping away at my uncaring, although he's got a long way to go.

  • Black History Month: 'God won't help us if we don't help each other.'

    "When he was here, he made rocks, trees and mountains that are high.

    He even made valleys that are deep and wide.

    He made rivers and lakes and oceans to flow.

    He sent sunshine and rain, even stormy winds that blow.

    Sometimes in winter he even sends snow.

    Can't you see? God did all this for you and me."
