  • Minimizing the parenting risks leads to successful children

    Recently, I read a claim that parents who do not allow their children to take risks are setting them up to fail in life. Half the time, I forget I even have kids. Hubby, on the other hand, is extremely overprotective. When we saw the movie “The Croods” every one of our children looked straight at their dad when the caveman father exclaimed, “Never not be afraid!”

    They are not allowed to climb trees. (But if it will make a good photo op, I make sure hubby never sees the photo.)

  • Onward and downward

    We humans live with failure. We often experience more failure than success. When failure is respected and appreciated, it responds with great generosity, delighted we have not turned away from the substance of our own lives and happy to do whatever it can to forge the deepening of our experience. Onward and downward we go.

  • Eschatology: The study of the end times

    As a collegiate and religion major in the 1970’s I encountered a book that had many people wondering about the future. “The Late Great Planet Earth” by Hal Lindsey took a speculative look at a variety of historical events and tried to blend sections of scripture that are difficult to understand with those events to come up with an approximate date of when the end history as we know it on earth would occur. This is known as the eschaton and the study of the end of time is known as eschatology.
