We have been looking at the life of the Old Testament prophet Elijah.
Greetings, loyal admirers and readers.
Following our worship service at First Baptist Church on Sunday morning, I had a very thought-provoking conversation with one of the resident thinkers of our assembly.
I once read an interview with an actor who criticized scripts that called for the character to vomit at the sight of a dead body or upon hearing some disturbing news, like the brutal murder of a child or loved one. This actor claimed that in real life, strong emotions don’t cause retching.

“Be careful, your attitude is contagious” is something I typed more than a decade ago.

We may be living in the most stressed-out generation in human history.
