ROUND: When You Say Farewell

THRUN: Christians, Muslims, and the Undecided
The controversy surrounding the proposed mosque to be built near Ground Zero has produced a disguised but significant benefit, i.e. it has prompted much interest and dialogue about Islam.
Numbering our days
The bunkmate is a multitasking person which really means…He starts one job, hits a snag, quits, and begins another. This continues until…I insist we attempt to finish the job that is the most important, and is affecting our sweet dispositions. It is not as easy to complete as we would like.

Don’t Worry Your Prayers
Recently, a friend shared her prayers and revelation concerning her adult children and grandchildren, who were traveling to Mexico to visit family. The two adults and three children had set out on their journey around 4 p.m. on a Friday. Because of the threat of thunderstorms, my friend was concerned. Before going to bed that evening, she lifted her family in prayer. However, she was still nervous about their journey until she received a text message around 9:45 p.m. from her daughter.
