I sat in my first Spanish class this morning since thirty (that's right, 3-0) years ago. As I look at the projected demographics in Abilene and Texas, it just makes sense for me to quit procrastinating. You won't likely see Cal Thomas quoted a lot here. But this morning's article on the Ten Commandment conflict in Alabama was insightful: "If the ultimate question is how best for God' followers to interest more people in his message, then the ultimate answer ought to come from internal, not external, things. Loving your enemies, praying for those who persecute you, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting those in prison and caring for widows and orphans make up the 'strategy' laid down bythe Founding Father of the Christian faith. Could it be that too many have forsaken the harder but more effective work in favor of exterior symbols that, like crosses worn as jewelry, tell the observer nothing about one's heart?"
