Design of the Week – Under Par

I really don’t know how the weather has been where you live, but here in the Southern U.S., it’s been HOT. It’s also been pretty clear. If you are a golfer, then this is the perfect weather to go out and play a few rounds. When most people play golf, they try to get the lowest score they can (notice I said most…when I go out to play it’s to give other people comic relief!). To do this, they have to shoot under par.

If you have no idea what this means I’ll explain a little. Par is basically the number of strokes the golf course thinks it should take for you to start from the tee and get it into the hole. If you get it in more shots, that’s over par and if you get make it in fewer shots, that’s under par. Obviously, if you’re going for the lowest score, you want to get from the tee to the hole in the fewest shots possible. Continue Reading Design of the Week – Under Par…

Does the world need “Elders”?

I will readily admit that I’m behind on the news that is going on. I am still working a daily job, as well as preparing for a huge church function, preparing to coach my daughter’s soccer team, researching my next sermon, and trying to get all my thoughts together on my new venture: an online evangelistic t-shirt company.

Even with all of that going on, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to write on something that seemed so grossly out of place and just plain weird. The news item in question is the announcement of a group of “Elders” that will use their combined wisdom and insight to help solve the “global community’s” problems. The group of Elders includes Kofi Annan, Desmond Tutu, Gro Harlem Brundtland, Mary Robinson, Jimmy Carter, Li Zhaoxing, Muhammad Yunus, Ela Bhatt, Graca Machel, and Nelson Mandela. 

Not to be rude, blunt, or sound ignorant, but I don’t know most of the people listed and regardless of whether I know who they are or not, why are they the ones “chosen” to be Elders? The group was proposed by millionaire Richard Branson (Virgin Records) and Peter Gabriel. Is this really the type of people that should be choosing “wise” men? Does this group represent the type of wisdom that the world needs? Many of the members of the Elders are pro-homosexual , pro-abortion, and pro-population control. Is that what the world needs? Maybe it’s kind of like this: “If we can’t keep you from being born, then we’ll keep you from reproducing, and if we can’t do that, then when you’re old enough to not fight us off, we’ll euthanize you”. Sure, it’s brash but how close to the truth is it? Continue Reading Does the world need “Elders”?…
