Well, for better or for worse, the sorry 113th Congress of the United States managed to cut a bipartisan budget deal that seems to guarantee that our government will not face another shutdown for a couple years.
For the many years that the Christmas season found me “behind a microphone” I must admit that I found myself growing weary around this time in December from the nearly-constant bombardment of Christmas music. You know the saying — too much of a good thing, right?
The Christmas Spirit
Christmas is when we celebrate the gift of God’s only Son, who came to earth as a baby, born of a virgin. He walked the earth as a man to get the whole “human experience,” but we Christians believe it was His sacrifice for us on the cross that saved each of us
A “soul full’ Christmas
We don’t talk much about the soul.
Other generations did, but not ours. We are far more focused on our bodies and our money.

Time to help is now
A couple of weeks ago, I took space in this column to talk about the needy and the hungry, and a call to action that was needed.

This week President Obama and former presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter made their way to South Africa to join thousands who honored the memory of Nelson Mandela.
Wherefore art thou, Simpler Stage?
In his play “As You Like It,” that debuted some 410 years ago, Will Shakespeare said “all the world’s a stage.”
We can only guess whether theatre audiences nodded in agreement or shook their heads vigorously to object.
