Thriving Couples Blog
For a long time I’ve had a thank you note on my bulletin board. It’s fading so much you can barely read it. I thought I should record it for posterity because it worth remembering . . .
Regardless who you cheered for in the recent Super Bowl game the video above (story is here) is an encouraging story. It turns out the only NFL team with a full-time chaplain is the New England Patriots and his presence is not just in a private service for ten players on Saturday . . .
This is another blog in a series from old things I’m finding cleaning out files…past due, no doubt (click Here for the others). The quote below is left over from my dissertation back in my Ph.D. studies at Iowa State in the 1990’s! YIKES! In any case . . .
