As a Christian, I have begun to think more deeply about the implications these things will have on the church going forward. I wonder how long it will be before our American culture revs up its opposition toward Christianity bringing about open persecution. This is not a popular topic but a real possibility.

I had my first cup of coffee on our screened porch this morning; the coffee was hot and the air was a little chilly—just the way I like it. I love the Fall season. After a hot and crazy summer, the fresh cool air is a welcome change.

Right in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have major unrest in our city streets which began with the death of George Floyd under the knee of a policeman.
