    I tend to appeal to non-religious people. I often hear comments like, "I've never met a pastor like you" or "I didn't know a church like yours existed!" Honestly, I do not think that either I or Fairview is all that unique when it comes to pastors or...
  • Commentary: National security bill would not strengthen borders

  • It's A Gray Area: Let the U.N. take over world's issues

    City Lights: Brubeck played here right after 9/11
    One day in my high school philosophy class, the teacher gave us a list of different methods of expression and asked us to determine which ones constituted language. Among those that ended up in the "no" stack was music, since, we decided, it worked on a...
  • It's a Gray Area: Drone attacks are undermining U.S. security worldwide

    The soul of the United States of America is our freedoms and liberties, and our soul is now under attack by our own government. I understand that the pressure on any president to keep us safe during his watch must be crushing. So for that reason, I don'...
