Recommended Summer Reads

My recommended summer reading list. I don’t get paid to recommend these. They’re just books I like: Sci-fi, Christian, nonreligious, biography, spirituality. What books do you recommend?

7 Non-Partisan Voting Tips

For those of you waiting for November 6th, I offer these non-partisan voting tips that come from many years of experience. I hope they help to clarify your choices. We’re all in this together.

Blue Like Jazz the Movie FTW

Blue Like Jazz is for Protestants and Catholics and atheists and agnostics, both gay and straight. It’s kind of a love it or hate it movie.
