Count Your Blessings!

On Monday I celebrated my 37th birthday! I know, I know, some of you think I am still just a young wipper-snapper, while others of you think I am starting to get “up there” in age. It’s all about perspective. Whatever the case, I know I am a blessed man. The apostle Paul asks, “What […]

Conversing With a Jewish Man

Last week I found myself in New Haven, Connecticut, home to Yale University. One day while walking downtown, I was approached by a man who asked me a very simple question – “Are you Jewish?” I responded, “No I’m not.” And that was pretty much the end of our brief encounter. I kept on walking […]
