Small is Not a Four Letter Word

In today’s news there was an article about small colleges and their struggles. It is common to think bigger is better, and students often choose a college by its size assuming they will get a bigger/better education at the big school.

ShepherdCalls_WPThe article caught my attention because I am the product of a small school. In 1957 I graduated from Union University in Jackson, TN. At that time, the school

Labor for the Master

A pastor invited me to fill a church pulpit. It was Father’s Day. I mentioned I might bring a Father’s Day message. “Oh, that’s a secular holiday. We don’t pay any attention to those,” my colleague replied.

HitchBOT

Social media reported hitchBOT, Canada’s hitchhiking robot, spent the night on a park bench in Philadelphia on Friday, July 31. Someone presumably gave it a “hitch” (ride) and then left it in a tourist area on the bench. Here hitchBOT fell into harmful hands and was destroyed.

ShepherdCalls_WPPrior to its destruction, hitchBOT hitchhiked across Canada, Germany and the Netherlands. It came to its demise in Philadelphia, the city of brotherly
