When You’re Tempted to Take Too Much Credit for Your Difficult Change

When my infant twin sons were only weeks old, I decided I would teach them to sleep through a little bit of noise. With two babies at once, I didn’t want to have to tiptoe through the house all the time. So after they drifted off to sleep in their swings one afternoon, I promptly rolled out the vacuum cleaner and began sweeping the living room. As I rolled the vacuum back and forth underneath their rocking swings, those baby boys barely stirred. The following week, I did it again. And I continue...

Will We Be Peacekeepers or Peacemakers?

One of my closest friends and I were texting about whether she should confront someone about a hurtful thing they’d said behind her back. She’s a firecracker, so I was surprised when I started to sense she was doubting herself. Was she being too sensitive? Making a big fuss over nothing? Being a troublemaker? I texted back, tapping hard at my phone screen, We’re called by God to be peaceMAKERS. Not peaceKEEPERS. Keeping our mouths shut and going with the flow is not peace. But you’re not like th...

Silva’s gem fires Man City to victory at Villa

Birmingham (United Kingdom) (AFP) – Manchester City kept the pressure on Premier League leaders Chelsea as Bernardo Silva’s sublime strike inspired a 2-1 win against Aston Villa on Wednesday. City’s trip to Villa Park was billed as Jack Grealish’s return to the club he left to join the English champions in a club record £100 million ($132 million) move in the close-season. But Grealish, a boyhood Villa fan, only played the final few minutes after coming off the bench. Greeted with jeers and poi...

The Passion Of The Christ Controversy Explained

When "The Passion of the Christ" was released on Ash Wednesday in February 2004, the reaction was overwhelming. Directed by Mel Gibson and starring Jim Caviezel, "The Passion of the Christ" presented itself as an authentic and unflinching examination of Jesus' sacrifice told in Hebrew, Latin, and Aramaic languages. It became a massive box office hit, accumulating over $600 million. At the time, it was the highest-grossing R-rated release. "The Passion of the Christ" received tremendous support f...

“Love the Clay”

Margaret McFarland, professor of child psychology at the University of Pittsburgh and co-founder and director of the Arsenal Family and Children’s Center in Pittsburgh, served as a consultant for the television show Mister Roger’s Neighborhood.

That Time Jesus Restored My Vision

The morning after I had hip surgery, my husband me set up on the couch with water, breakfast, ice, and my meds. I was so thankful the anesthesia hadn’t made me actively queasy (if you know what I mean). I was groggy but my pain levels were well managed. I was ready to put months of discomfort and limitations behind me and start this road to recovery! As I slowly ate a piece of sourdough toast, I grabbed my phone to answer some text messages. But I couldn’t read anything on the screen. I must sti...

Ten Ways to Be the Merry

“Bring it on!” — that’s what I say to the Christmas season. Bring on the fun, the gifts, the food, the baking, the music, the movies. Bring on the merry! I love Christmas, but you know that. As a little girl, I could hardly wait for Christmas to arrive. When you’re a kid, the longest and slowest days happen between Thanksgiving and December 25 th . Now, as a grown-up girl, Christmas seems to come faster and faster. A few years ago I made a decision to press pause on the last two weeks of ...

Man City take top spot, PSG through despite defeat

Manchester (United Kingdom) (AFP) – Manchester City came from behind to secure top spot in Group A with a 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain as both sides qualified for the Champions League last 16 on Wednesday. Kylian Mbappe put the French giants in front against the run of play five minutes into the second half. But PSG run the risk of being drawn against the likes of Bayern Munich, Chelsea or Liverpool in the last 16 after Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus turned the game around for the Englis...

My Honest Confession: I Want People to Love Me

I stood in line at the grocery store. Intentionally, I’d left my phone in my pocket even though it whispered how easily it could resolve my anxiety. A tap, a slight scroll, a text could get me through the awkward waiting, but I resisted. I didn’t want to be that girl who escaped into her own private world. I wanted to be present. I glanced over my shoulder and smiled at the young kids swarming around in the shopping cart with their unopened treats. I looked at their mother. She looked tired. I c...

Xavi’s Barca held by Benfica in Champions League

Barcelona (AFP) – Barcelona’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League last 16 go down to the final Group E matchday after an entertaining 0-0 draw against Benfica on Tuesday. With Xavi Hernandez taking charge of his second game since replacing Ronald Koeman in the Barca dugout, the Catalan side produced a performance a world apart from the sorry outfit Benfica saw off 3-0 in Lisbon in September. A win would have earned Barca qualification alongside Bayern Munich, whom they must now beat on...

14 Shows Like Schitt's Creek You Need To See

There's nothing more satisfying than watching a genuinely funny, warm-hearted sitcom find an audience and, more importantly, be given time to develop a niche following instead of being cancelled immediately. "Schitt's Creek" was an unexpected hit, with each season introducing more and more people to the show who would quickly become diehard fans. The journey of the privileged Roses from comically out-of-touch one-percenters to a loving, supportive, emotionally healthy family was perhaps one of t...

How Forgiving Others Truly Sets Us Free

I’d lost count of the hurt. At one point long ago, I kept a mental tally of the words and woundings, but eventually the list turned into a tangled mess. Instead of looking at each painful memory one by one like files in a cabinet or pages in a scrapbook, they started to feel like a knotted ball of yarn deep in the pit of my stomach. I knew forgiveness was the way forward, but it was hard to know exactly how to get there. The echoes of Bible verses about forgiveness swirled in my head, but it fel...

The Gift of Passing Down Family Recipes

I can’t remember a time when cooking wasn’t of paramount importance to me. My first game of pretend? Cooking show. Tiny plastic cups and saucers arranged on an imaginary stove, balls of play-doh mimicking the vegetables and curries and chapatis (unleavened, griddled flatbreads) that were commonplace on our dinner table. I remember the first time I tasted homemade butter; my grandmother put a stainless steel bowl next to me, with a wink. No butter can ever come close to hers because a grandmother...

The Best TV Shows And Movies Coming To HBO Max In December 2021

Holy crap, it's almost December. Which means the year is almost over. Somehow. As we wrap up 2021, we're also about to say goodbye to the Warner Bros. plan to release their new movies both in theaters and on HBO Max at the same time. The last title to receive this presentation will be "The Matrix Resurrections." After that, it's back to theatrical exclusives! Unless WB changes their minds, which could happen. You never know. For now, though, prepare yourselves for the end of the year with the li...

What I Learned from Cooking Thanksgiving Dinner

We’re mixing up Bible Study Mondays a bit today! Here’s a timely story by Aliza Latta, as published in Week 4 of Courageous Kindness! Scroll down for the usual reflection questions, video, and more. “What do you think? Which of the three became a neighbor to the man attacked by robbers?” “The one who treated him kindly,” the religion scholar responded. Jesus said, “Go and do the same.” Luke 10:36–37 (MSG) I was about to cook my first turkey dinner for Thanksgiving. It felt like a big deal. I had...

Minneapolis Man Acquitted Of Charges After Mistakenly Shooting At Cops Sues Officers For Violating His Rights (techdirt)

It's not often a citizen shoots at a cop and lives to tell about it. It's even rarer when they walk away from criminal charges. When it's considered "assault" to be anywhere in the general location of an angry cop, actual shots fired tend to be greeted with severe charges. Acquittals are unicorns in the court system, which largely tends to believe people who shoot at cops always have zero justification for their actions. One black Minnesota resident has bucked the odds. Jaleel Stallings was ar...

Bible Study with Others Is Always Worth It

Earlier this fall I signed up for a reading plan in my Bible app. It promised I could read the entire New Testament in just three months, and I decided that’s exactly what I needed: a challenging goal broken into doable steps. Surely I could follow this plan. I eagerly read the first few chapters of Matthew on the day I clicked join and felt so determined, so excited to see what I’d learn about God, and — let’s be honest — so pleased with myself and my certain success in reading and comprehendin...
