  • Easter Season

  • Posted by Jim Keller on March 20, 2012 | Topics: Spiritual Developments
  • As we enter another Easter season, I’m reminded of amazing themes that this time of year brings to us over two millennia.  Life over death, good over evil, humility over pride, and sacrifice over selfishness… these are just a few that come to mind.  A few days ago I was tossing a small football with … Continue reading “Easter Season”

  • I have been coughing for a month and it is probably been the most frustrating illness I have had in quite some time.  I have a cold.  Or, probably more accurately, I suffer from “the common cold”.  I wish it were more dramatic, that descriptor.  Something like “The Phlegmatic Flare-up” or “The Pulmonary Piranha”, because … Continue reading “The Common Cold”

  • I am a Detroit Tigers fan.  Yes, I admit it, I love the Tigers.  That is a baseball team for those who are not fans.  As any true baseball fan knows, our sport is a fickle one.  It is the longest of all professional seasons and has double the games of the other sports:  162 … Continue reading “Hope”
