Ode to Wrestling in Wilmington

Posted on 31 March, 2017 (Amended on 30 May 2017) 4 March, 2011 Wrestling season comes to a close.

Wrestling: A Personal Tribute

31 March, 2017 Revised 22 July, 2017 Distinctive Features of the Sport One of the great blessing of wrestling is instruction in humility.  Everyone takes a beating sometime.

Michael Bray 28 Feb., 2017 I am grateful for the article in the Journal featuring pastors of three churches in town (“Keys to a Thriving Congregation,” 28 February,  by Gary Huffenberger).  There was no definition of  a Christian “church” supplied, but based upon the fact that all three were by their implied affirmation of the […]

The evanescent feelings, mindset, or “opinions” of “the Court” – like the afflatus of an ass – will pass.  Law, however, must – […]

The Single “Issue” and Trump

7 Feb., 2017 A false parity between “the right” and “the left” continues now into the middle of the fifth decade. I have in mind of course the “abortion issue.” It is not true that those on each side ought to respect one another’s opinion and patiently wait for a peaceful outworking of “differences.”  We […]

In the same Journal issue the “Our View” editorial, “Trump: A […]
