God wants us to become the butterfly, not the worm

  • Jan 26, 2009 at 10:00PM

I was asked a number of years ago how I feel about change. I responded in the words of the common philosophy that we change or die. This past year has been a year of change on a number of different fronts – perhaps you’ve felt it too. With change comes opportunity...the constant companion of change...perhaps the very reason we resist change so forcefully...to our own personal peril.

America’s financial future heads overseas

  • Jan 26, 2009 at 10:00PM

So, our economy is down the toilet, like nothing you’ve ever experienced or can remember – unless you’re around 80 years old. We’ve seen recessions before, but this one is a real doozy. And our new president and most financial experts who are supposed to know about such things tell us the situation will get worse, with even higher unemployment, thousands of foreclosures, extreme Wall Street gyrations, more major corporations going bankrupt and more retail stores going broke. Understandably, the public is a bit frightened.

This was all an attempt to give the city a new look and bring dollars back into the city.
