How did December 25 come to be associated with Jesus’ birthday?  Andrew McGowan, Warden and President of Trinity College at the University of Melbourne, Australia, walks us through the history.

No Ordinary Night

starsAn ordinary night with ordinary sheep and ordinary shepherds. And were it not for a God who loves to hook an “extra” on the front of ordinary, the night would have gone unnoticed. The sheep would have been forgotten, and the shepherds would have slept the night away.

I Can’t Get That Time Back

Urban Meyer, head coach of the Florida Gators football team that represents the University of Florida, stepped down from his role earlier this month. Even if you know nothing about college football (like me!), his statements at the press conference are very powerful, and sad at the same time. There's a lot to learn from someone very publicly admitting they don't have their priorities straight. I want to be more defined and known for how I invested my time into people, not things.

World Aids Day

 world_aids_dayToday marks the 22nd official World Aids Day. A day to stop, observe, pray, and remember the disease that is sweeping over parts of world.
