What Can We Do

I know my columns haven’t been cheerful in recent weeks. It’s hard to see our country heading where we’d rather it not go. I was once in a mentoring relationship with an accomplished CEO who...

Merry Christmas

As the world gets more complex, many question the relevance of Jesus Christ to our world. After all, he was born more than 2,000 years ago, they point out. His world and life experiences were nothing...

 

The Agenda

More About the Great Reset

Last week I said I’d write more on the coming Great Reset if readers requested it. You did. So here’s more. We can learn a lot about the Great Reset by reading its own material. It’s right...

 

What is the Great Reset?
