As I pray and reflect more and more and more on the troubles in a local school district as a metaphor for what's ailing our country - go to www.koppdisclosure.com for more on that ("Killing Public Schools") - I am stunned by the rebellion against our Lord's simple solution to the problems. People keep looking horizontally rather than vertically for the answer.
Put the commandments back up and start the day with a prayer and the pledge.
Parenthetically, I attended the Bucs glorious victory over Boylan last night; and I've often noticed how respectful the Titans are to their teachers, adults, and even visitors to their turf.
Go to a game of any kind on their turf or attend a band concert or go to the start of every day at Boylan and you will see and hear the incarnate solution if, spiritually, your eyes and ears are working!
The solution is so simple.
Our rebellion remains so...dark.
I remember Tony Campolo confessing to me, "One of my favorite things is to watch supposedly smart people continue to act so stupidly."
Anyway, big surprises tomorrow in worship!
Don't miss Ash Wednesday in the chapel on, uh, Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.
And take a look at a friend's comments below that really relate to...
Blessings and Love!
