One of the difficulties we face in our industrialized age is the fact we’ve lost our sense of seasons. Unlike the farmer whose priorities change with the seasons, we have become impervious to the natural rhythm of life. As a result, we have our priorities out of balance. Let me illustrate what I mean:  For a farmer, springtime is his…

When it comes to meeting and conquering the negativity in your life, here is a key question: what can you do, starting today, that will make a difference?  What can you do during economic chaos?

Two thousand years ago on April 15th one of Jesus’ disciples came to him and said it was time to pay taxes (that’s how I know it was around April 15th), but they had no money. In response to his disciple’s statement Jesus said “no problem”.  Now why could he say “no problem”? Well, word…
