There’s something very powerful, profound, and cathartic about the 40 days of Lent. Even at times in my life when I felt alienated from the body of Christ, wanted nothing to do with “organized” religion, or pushed faithful living to the edges of my being, Lent has always been important in my life. On Ash Wednesday (March 5 this year), the church calls us all to the observance of a holy Lent. It’s a strange and compelling invitation.

It’s not often that I can say First Lady Michelle Obama and I run in the same circles, but this is OUR year!

The “Big D.” Over half of all marriages end in it. Surprisingly, even half of church-going people end up in divorce court. When I was growing up the “Big D” meant the Denver Broncos. I was a huge John Elway fan and enjoyed their great run of Super Bowl appearances and victories.
African American male rappers have long endorsed products in commercials. Google “A Brief History of Rappers in Soda Commercials” and “20 Best Rap Commercials of All Time.” There’s nothing inherently problematic aesthetically, creatively, or politically about non-black rapping.

After being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma last June, I was forced to cut back on reviewing movies every week. In between chemo treatments and sleeping for days on end, I’ve made an effort to see as many new releases as possible. Now at the start of a promising new year, I am happy to announce that I am virtually cancer free. Even better, I have a lot of truly great films from yesteryear to talk about.

When a dog is shaved down for the summer, can he be embarrassed? When a dog misbehaves toward the newly adopted pet, is he being jealous? When a cat urinates on the bed pillow while her family is on vacation is she being spiteful? When a dog’s litter mate passes after 10 years together, will the surviving dog grieve?
I have a Bible verse propped up on my desk as a great reminder throughout the day. It reads, “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for Me?” (Jeremiah 32:27). Of course the answer to that is a resounding NO! I would like to share a few encouraging stories that illustrate how nothing is impossible for God.

The way Fido wags his tail might reveal more about him than you know. Just ask another dog.
