Why wait?

Are you involved in the anti-trafficking movement? I continually find myself amazing by the people who haven't even heard about human trafficking, let alone the number of people who want no part of the fight. I have often said this is not a Christian issue or a Jewish or Buddhist or Muslim issue. It is a human race issue. This evil impacts every demographic of man and it is going to take all of us working together to eradicate it. I am thankful for the people who understand this, but there are plenty who don't. I spoke in one city where [...]

What’s for sale in the window where you live?

Do you ever go window shopping? There don't seem to be as many storefront windows as there used to be. I remember when my grandmother worked in retail, the storefront window was all the rage.

Next we looked at picture for a few seconds then given an altered picture and had to identify the missing items from the original photograph. Most participants learned they weren't very observant. Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons conducted a study on selective attention. Their findings are referred to [...]

Are you living where you live?

When was the last time you were on a farm? Ever? This past week I had the opportunity to visit my dear friend, Pattie, at her new home which happens to be a farm. I've always known Pattie to be a city girl. She and her family lived in the heart of the city, near Little Five Points, and loved the hustle and bustle of the city life. She loved walking to restaurants and getting around town on MARTA, the subway system of Atlanta. The idea of her moving to a farm made me immediately think of the old television [...]
