When was the last time you said grace? I'm not talking about that brief prayer of thanks at mealtime. When was the last time you actually spoke grace to another person?

I don't know about anyone else, but I have been enjoying the recent warm, sunny days. Largely because I indulged myself in a toy – 1980 motorcycle! So my mode of transportation on these nice days has been missing since the early 1980s. Enjoying the feeling of the sun, the wind and the power of the bike has been great...with a few exceptions.
I think there are three questions at the very center of faith: Who is God? Who are we? And what does God want from us? Everything else seems to follow from there.
Russell Wilson, popular quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, has come out with a new clothing line, Good Man Brand. Evidently he wants guys to dress like he dresses – casual elegance. I guess Ciara likes that look! Clothes say something about a person, don’t they?
Sex isn’t the answer. That should be obvious by now, but in our adolescent culture we can’t seem to grasp the obvious, so we suffer the consequences. Like a drug addict who keeps going back to the stuff that’s killing them, we chase romance as if it’s religion and desirability as if it’s a virtue. It’s not just men who buy the lie but women as well, vainly imagining that there is real power in allure, and so we cultivate our appearance to that end. But it’s a road to nowhere, both now and forever.
