Addicted to Outrage - Spokane FAVS Commentary

Image
Everytime you turn around there is another controversy. There seems to be always something people are getting angry or offended at. It makes me wonder if we have become so addicted to outrage that we constantly need another dose, another hit, to make us feel good. But where does that leave us in the end?
In my latest piece on Spokane FAVS, I discuss our addiction to outrage.

The Uncivil War We Wage - Spokane FAVS Commentary

Image
Does the world feel a little less civil to you. If news coverage is any indication, than our most basic interactions have devolved to shouting down and offering demeaning comments to each other. In my latest piece, I talk about the not-so-silent war raging in our communities and in the nation.

Alfie Evans - Should the State get to decide when someone dies? - Spokane FAVS Commentary

Image
In my latest piece, I take a look at the tragic case of Alfie Evans, a young child from England who became the center of a legal battle between the hospital, the State, and his parents. When I wrote this, Alfie was still alive and fighting. I'd be lying if that statement didn't bring a pang of guilt to my heart, as I intended to write about his case much sooner than I had. It was only the next morning  after submitting my article to Spokane Faith and Values, that my wondeful editor informed me that Alfie had indeed passed away. This young warrior is now free of his mortal frame and in the loving arms of his eternal Heavenly Father.

Vulgar language can hurt your relationship with God - Spokane FAVS Commentary

Image
In our divided socio-political landscape, one need look no further than our daily interactions to see that our language is filled with vulgarity, name calling, back-biting, gossip, half-truths and untruths.
In my latest commentary I take a look at how our language can create a barrier between each other and from the divine.
