Good Thinking: Abraham, Journey of Faith

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“O Lord, I’m on my journey; O Lord, I’m on my journey;

O Lord, I’m on my journey; On my journey home!”

Life is one looong journey from Birth to Death. Life, for our sakes, is made up of shorter “journeys”; Lent is one of those shorter “journeys” that we take each year to deepen our spiritual life and to bring us closer to where God

Good Thinking: Fat Tuesday, Ash Wednesday

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Ash Wednesday is Feb. 18. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. “Lent” comes from the Anglo-Saxon word “lencten” and the German word “lenz,” and refers to the springtime of the year when the days begin to “lengthen.”

Lent, for the Christian community, is that 40-day season (not counting Sundays) leading up to Easter. Originally, the faithful were required to fast and pray

Good Thinking: Imago Dei

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Ever wondered how everything began? How did the solar system begin? Why is Earth the only planet capable of sustaining life? Why are people afraid of snakes? Why do women have so much pain in child-birth? How did sin & evil & death originate? We humans have tried to answer these questions for centuries. Our answers come, however, out of an extremely limited lifespan; therefore, our

Good Thinking: In Bleak Mid-Winter

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“In the bleak mid-winter frosty wind made moan;

Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone.” — Christina Rossetti

Winter is a tough time! Temperatures plunge. Thermometers range from 32 to 0 degrees. The wind-chill freezes us to the bone. The good earth is frozen hard as concrete. Water turns to ice. The sun hides its face. Clouds cover the sky. Our days are short.

Good Thinking: How Far to Bethlehem?

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Every year, thousands of people travel to Bethlehem to be a part of the Christmas crowd. They think, perhaps, that being in the very place where the Christ-child was born will make Him more real to them. Every year, millions of people do not get to travel to Bethlehem. Most of us have never stood with the faithful around the manger-bed. Most of us have

Good Thinking: Stress

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Anxiety! Tension! Stress! Words that define our society today! James Dobson puts it this way: “…one of the certainties of life is that we will all experience hardship and stress at some point.” Joshua Liebman echoes that thought: “Maturity is achieved when a person accepts life as full of tension (and stress).” Finally, Danzae Pace reminds us that “Stress is the trash of modern life —

Good Thinking: Wars and Rumors of War

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“Who goes there, in the night, across the storm-swept plain?

We are the ghosts of a valiant war, a million murdered men.

Who goes there, at the dawn, across the sun-swept plain?

We are the hosts of those who swear, it shall not be again!”

— Thomas Curtis Clark

Veterans of valiant wars long-past will remember, and will be remembered, as we observe Veteran’s Day on

Good Thinking: Why Should I Vote?

by Dr. Don Kuehle

In 1792, Election Day was set for the Tuesday following the first Monday in November. November was selected because the harvest was over and winter had not yet begun. Tuesday was chosen because, if Monday has been chosen, some might have had to travel on Sunday/the Sabbath.

“He cast his vote, distrusting all the elected — but not the law.” So said Karl Shapiro.

Good Thinking: Autumn Gold

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Fall is here. The trees are dressed in their colorful garb: green and orange and yellow and gold. Fall reminds us that this world is a place of beauty. Fall reminds us of what is most important in life; and of what is not important.January 1848! Gold is discovered at Sutter’s Fort, California! The news
