One of our students asks:
Continue reading “The word”
I have been reading the Gospel of John, which starts “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” In the Greek translation, the passage uses “logos” which has been interpreted in English as “word.” What is the difference between “word” and “logos”?

A visitor from Florida asks:
Continue reading “The only begotten”

A website visitor in Arizona asks:
Continue reading “The high road can be bumpy”
Over the past year or so I have been repeatedly presented with dishonesty in people within my close circle – both in friends and in co-workers. They seem happy to look me straight in the eye and be completely open about how they have profited (without apparent consequence) from their blatant dishonesty, lies, stealing and general sneakiness. When I have attempted to point it out they justify and/or completely deny the lie – sometimes, frankly, they look at me like I’m crazy. It’s extremely disheartening as I try to figure out what the point is in taking the high road. Since this has been put “in front of my face” over and over, I assume there is a “lesson” here and I would love any guidance as to discover what that might be and how to process through it. Thank you.

I thought it might be a good time to get advice out there about how to alleviate some of the most common issues causing tension in pandemic-weary households.
