18 Oct: Daily Homily (Religion & Children) and Tweets

I haven’t done many religion tweets in these posts, so I’ll write about it instead. A couple of weeks ago I once again had proselytizers at the front door. This time, they were from the Seventh Day Adventist Church. One was a man in his 30s or 40s, and the other was a boy of about sixteen. The poor kid was obviously extremely nervous. He told me where he was from and invited me to a meeting at... read more

17 Oct 2017: Homily (NZ Coalitions) and Daily Tweets

Yesterday I once again watched ‘The Five’ on Fox News. They had a segment about Harvey Weinstein. I also watched... read more

10 Oct 2017: Daily Homily (Compromise in Politics) and Tweets

The United States is rightfully proud of it’s origins. There is an underlying premise in the tweets from that country that comes from the First Amendment of their constitution – that they have freedom of speech. It’s a premise that all of us who live in democracies based on Enlightenment ideals rely on. But politics is broken in the US. It’s been getting worse for years. Those in... read more
