Jackie left home at ten in the morning to care for her aged mother. She'd be gone for a couple hours, returning in time for lunch. She did it every day. On this day, however, things went wrong.
When Jackie returned home, she noticed the garage door open. Thinking that she must have left it open, she got out of her car and entered the garage. The door from the garage to the house was also open. It was at that point that Jackie realized someone had been in her house. She ran back to her car where she called the police.
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff. The first generation liberated from Egypt died in the desert because they didn’t learn. And when the people pointed with oohs and ahhs towards current events, Jesus asked them to learn from the past to recognize that some things are not as significant as the eternal choices.
The government has finally woken up to the fact that the health of our children in this country is threatened by their food. For two generations, since World War II, food has become increasingly processed and the era of the fast food meal is well and truly with us.
Karen hates church. She feels it's a place where people are brainwashed. She thinks the people who go to church are weak, looking for a crutch in sermons that tell them how to behave. Karen clearly has an issue with established religion.
