Being Part of the Solution to World Poverty in a Simple Way

Posted by Simon Lee Briggs on October 29, 2013 at 8:55 PM Comments comments (0)

We in the developed world are living in a time where many items that did not even exist decades ago, are considered needs, not luxuries. We feel constrained to provide them to our growing children because "everyone else has them." We want our children to "fit in." We feel the need to "keep up with the Joneses" and to "run the rat race." Even those of us who may have low incomes often receive "entitlements" or other help that assists us in moving in or near to middle-class living. The things t...

God, the Church and Autism

Posted by Simon Lee Briggs on October 27, 2013 at 6:45 AM Comments comments (0)

 

Months ago, via Facebook shares online, I read two articles that bothered me and I know that they also bothered many other people; I also commented on both of them. Both articles discuss autism and faith in God, or the lack of it, and spirituality. One article is titled, "Autism May Diminish Belief in God" and the other is titled, "Are Atheists More Autistic Than Believers?" The very titles suggest that people with autism are inherently less spiritual than others and have less ...

All of us who operate from a Christian worldview are just as unhappy with the current government shutdown as are those who do not share this worldview, or who do not consider themselves "religious." We see how politicians decision to this partial shutdown has profoundly affected the lives of many, especially those who have low incomes, their children, the families of those who have given their lives in military service, disabled veterans, many federal workers considered "nonessen...

Halloween: A Christian Perspective

Posted by Simon Lee Briggs on October 27, 2013 at 6:40 AM Comments comments (0)

It's getting close to that time of the year when we celebrate Halloween. Of course, stores have been selling Halloween cards, Halloween party supplies and produce suppliers have been selling pumpkins for a couple of months. They have been doing this in St. Louis, Missouri, where I am. It's all a reminder that, in a week, most children under 12 and some older teens and adults, will wear their favorite Halloween costumes. My husband and I did this as parents, while I more have just gone along w...

An Open Message To the US Government

Posted by Simon Lee Briggs on October 26, 2013 at 4:15 PM Comments comments (0)

 

Barack Obama and to each of the Members of the US House of Representatives and to the Senate:

 

I am sure that you are aware, if you care to see it, that so many of your citizens are not happy with your performance. You know that a week ago, someone fired shots at the Capitol building. I think that you should not be surprised if this shooter's motive may have been rage at your actions that have caused the current government shutdown. That would not excuse this s...

Mr. Spock goes to church': How one Christian copes with Asperger's syndrome

Posted by Simon Lee Briggs on October 26, 2013 at 4:15 PM Comments comments (0)

 

(CNN) -- In the book “Jim and Caspar Go to Church,” an atheist turns to a Christian minister as they're watching a Sunday morning church service and earnestly asks, "Is this what Jesus told you guys to do?"

 

I've grown up in churches and I'm a Christian, and I'm right there with the atheist.

Want To Fight Poverty, People of God?

I'm sure that if you have followed the news, whether online or on TV, several months ago, you have been saturated with coverage of a baby. This baby is known as the "royal baby," and we were subjected to nonstop two-day coverage of every detail of this baby's birth. Who was he? He was born on July 22, 2013, to Catherine "Kate" Middleton and to Prince William Alexander. The day before, we were taken into every detail of the anticipated arrival of this "royal baby" who is named Pr...
