My 'come-to-Jesus' moment about Rob Ford

I don’t think I need to tell you who Rob Ford is.  I think at this point, if you have an internet connection and live in the developed world, you know who he is.  Jay Leno knows who he is.  David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Howard Stern… they ALL know who Rob Ford is.  Two Saturdays ago, I went to a Dixie Chicks concert in Hamilton where they dedicated their song ‘Sin Wagon’ to Rob Ford.  Even country singers from Texas know who he is and what he’s done....more

As if one life ended on that operating table and a whole new one began, but in same body with all the same memories. I even remember the last words of my previous life… In response to something they said, I told the nurses in the operating room that I was “there for them.” I don’t recall anything after those couple words....more

Even Me? How Speaking Out as an Ally has Affirmed my Faith.

On an August afternoon last fall, I sat in front of my computer screen with tears streaming down my face.  Maybe you did as well.  For plastered all over my Facebook wall were photos of so many proudly eating a chicken sandwich in the name of American values, many in the name of Jesus.I'm guessing you saw them, too.Sure, you can say this was a free speech issue, but somehow I don't remember this same general population organizing a Dixie Chicks Appreciation Day after the always vocal country music group also had exercised their free speech....more
