Thanksgiving, the saga of thankfulness continues

Posted by | November 29, 2018 9:04 am

Playl’s Ponderings – By Steve Playl

On Thanksgiving Day, as well as the days pre- and post-holiday, I reflected on “what I am thankful for” lists. I came up with a three-point outline. Each of the categories contains much material for meditation. Each was too expansive to mention, as everyone at the table listed something for which we were thankful on Thanksgiving Day.

The categories are simple. What I am most thankful for are: the Creator, His creatures, and all of His creation. That just about covers it! Allow me to elaborate.

God is great. God is good. He is worthy of our praise, and I am so … Read More

There’s no such thing as “my truth” – only THE truth

Posted by | November 29, 2018 8:58 am

Language of Liberty – By Lawrence W. Reed

The first casualty on the slippery slope to tyranny is the truth.

During the recent hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, I was struck by how many times I heard people admiringly proclaim, “She spoke her truth.” Referring to the accusers, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker repeatedly insisted, “Her truth needs to be heard.”

This is the rather cynical notion that there really isn’t such a thing as truth for … Read More
