Everyone had reservations when it was announced Peter Jackson would be splitting up “The Hobbit” into a trilogy. Do we really need three separate movies? Can’t this 300-page book be done in one movie? Isn’t this just a ploy to milk a franchise and make an extra couple billion dollars? When “An Unexpected Journey” finally came out last December, we all found that these initial concerns were pretty much spot-on.
As we bid farewell to the 2013 football season; a crazy, cooky, memorable (for all the right and wrong reasons), let’s take a look at a few impact players.

As we approach Thanksgiving, and the weeks that seem to race towards Christmas, there’s plenty to be grateful to God for in our lives. Thanksgiving invites us to take time to consider all of our blessings. While some of us may be thrilled with the material things of life, many of us look around and realize that the most important things in life aren’t things at all. They’re our relationships. That’s our relationship with God in Christ Jesus, as well as our relationships with family, friends, and neighbors. Shortly after Thanksgiving, Christians begin another season of intentional reflection: the season of Advent. Since we’re giving thanks and taking time to celebrate all our relationships, let’s take a closer look at the one relationship that changed the world.
Forty is a significant number in the Bible, and there are many instances of something happening for 40 days or 40 years. To name a few things that lasted for 40 days — during the time of Noah, it rained for 40 days and nights (Genesis 7:12); Moses met with God on the mountain for 40 days twice, first to obtain instructions for building the tabernacle and then to receive the 10 commandments (Exodus 24:18 and 34:28); the spies explored the land of Canaan for 40 days (Numbers 13:25); Goliath taunted the Israelites for 40 days until David put an end to him (1 Samuel 17:16); one meal gave Elijah enough strength to sustain him for 40 days (1 Kings 19:8); the city of Nineveh was given 40 days to repent (Jonah 3:4); Jesus fasted and was tempted by the devil for 40 days (Luke 4:2); after Jesus’ resurrection, He appeared on earth for a period of 40 days before ascending into heaven (Acts 1:3).

Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” was perfect pop pleasantry, full of back-to-back hits that were oh-so-fun and addictive, fused with humor, emotion and a hint of edge. How could you resist?
The cooler fall temperatures are here at last. Summer vacation time is lingering in the corners of our minds. Our children and grandchildren are back in school. The winter visitors are beginning to arrive. The traffic volume is heavier. The stores are gearing up for the upcoming fall festivals and winter holidays. Many of us are beginning to feel like we’re stuck in the “I Love Lucy” candy factory episode on a speeding conveyer belt, hurtling along and out of control. There’s so much busy packed into our days that we’re in danger of forgetting that the origin of holiday is holy day. If you’re days are anything like mine, I’m sure you’ve noticed that the business of busy too frequently equates to major stress and anxiety. When I prayed about my own busyness, I found my mind dwelling on two Bible stories.
1 Peter 5:8 says, “Be alert, be on watch! Your enemy, the devil, roams around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.”
So, it’s really happened.
Believe it or not, the football season is already halfway complete.
Thirty-six years after the movie-going world met Luke Skywalker, it’s going to get to hear him speak in one of Arizona’s native languages: Diné.
I know the challenges that Arizona faces. I have read the countless reports outlining the investments our state needs to make if we are going to have a bright future: education, business, infrastructure, research, transportation and job creation.

Nowadays, long hair and loud guitars are common in country music. That wasn’t always the case. The new album “Alabama & Friends” pays tribute to a pioneering band that proved decades ago how popular merging country and Southern rock could be.
Strange how people can become famous for movies that don't show half of what they can do. And then they make something like "Drinking Buddies" that reveals their full talent, charm and ability, but few people ever see it.
