Column: Christianity and "being cool"
One of the benefits of having a father who has traveled around a little bit is the stories. Unfortunately, I haven't received quite as many of them as I have hoped during my time abroad, so my dad unknowingly gave me an excellent Easter present when he sent me one recently. Many years...

Column: Into the light

"Have you been drinking?" Bill asked as we stood on the side of the road, waiting for my husband's cousin Eddie. "No," I said. "Why?" "Well, you just ran over a deer in the middle of the road and you seem too happy, like you don't realize what's just happened. Your van is messed...

I have a 'dead body friend.' You know--a friend you can call at 2 a.m. and say, "I've got a dead body at my house. Come help me." And that person will come over and help you, no questions asked. It's great to have friends who encourage and help us carry our burdens through difficult...
