Dear Hannah, Remember my sharing on Proverbs 12:24 ... when I mentioned that most proverbs describe two distinct pathways that individuals have the opportunity to choose - and bear the fruit, the consequences, or some of both?Well, here we go again.Let's wrestle with Proverbs 12:23 now.For posterity, Proverbs 12:24 says "The diligent person will rule, but the slothful (lazy) will become a slave".If you are wondering why I started this series by sharing about Proverbs 12:24 first - it was...

Dear Hannah, Proverbs is a Bible book full of concrete, simple, indisputable wisdom.The wisdom is offered in small, "bite-size" verses.This makes it a good book to study with a mixed group of older and younger folks.Studying Proverbs can lull you to sleep, though - please let me explain.It is easy to interpret most proverbs as describing what a good person does vs. what a bad person does ... as if we are always comparing two different people.Most proverbs, though, describe two distinct...

(Rebroadcast: 2-5-2018) (Original Broadcast: 3-1-2017) Dear Hannah, my education began when I finished school. reflection led to a lot of unlearning and relearning. i realized that i was presented facts disguised as knowledge, opinions disguised as fact, and a whole lot of memorized processes disguised as problem solving. it's all good, though - 'cause now I know ... that i don't know. so i value divergent thinking ... (seeing many answers to the same question) ... creativity ... (capacity...

Dear Hannah, we can both reach the finish line by helping each other train and pace to run our own race but to run it right we need to both pack light to push some major freight and pull our own weight so hang in there when it doesn't go your way hang in there when you have to say "bye bye" sometimes to people, places, habits, and ideas that hinder more than they help sometimes you have to see it through ... and sometimes you have to see through it ...

Dear Hannah: LEarning (Reconciliation (Not Done Yet))

12/4/2017
More
Dear Hannah,The road to reconciliation starts with ...realization (of both the might and the plight), respect (both spiritual essence and natural function), reassurance (of commitment to the corrective plan and path - don't ask for trust ... EARN IT), and REAL relationship (dealing with each other as EQUALS).We've got a long way to go ...... because we keep trying to start at the finish line ...... and often label voices of reason as voices of treason ...... but 'tis the season ...... to...

Dear Hannah,I'm a people watcher - a careful observer of human behavior.Watching people has taught me that when I look at them ...... sometimes I am looking through a window.... other times I am looking in a mirror.When I stare through a window in the afternoon, I see outside.Staring through a window at night shows me "me".The mirror always shows me "me" ... but also shows me what is behind me ... and what is to come.Man, I hope all that makes sense.But let me spell it out.What you see is...

Dear Hannah: LEarning (Follow The Leader)

11/6/2017

Dear Hannah,There's this school of thought that measures our leaders' effectiveness by factors like their number of followers, or our unflinching alignment with their opinions.Both are misleading.I measure a leader's effectiveness by that leader's service.Not "what they do" for us or "the least of these", per se.In these times, that service includes thought leadership more than ever.Not telling us what to think, but establishing a standard of thoughtfulness that produces coherent,...

These layers include community building blocks like voting wards, subdivisions, apartments,...
