    “Participants will get people to sponsor them to sleep in a box for one evening,” said event organizer Linda Funk. “Under a safe setting they are asked to bring only a few necessities and to think what it might be like if they had no home, but only a box as a shelter.”
    It’s the fourth year the Kitchen has planned Cardboard Nation.  

  • COLUMN: Can you survive another Great Depression?

    I just read two very interesting articles on the U.S. economy, written from historical perspectives. They compelled me to share my own historical perspective. And what I want to say is more about our changing culture than our economy.
    One of the articles, by Julie Crawshaw of MoneyNews.com, notes that the “Misery Index”-the combined unemployment and inflation rates-made infamous under President Jimmy Carter, has hit a 28-year high. It’s also 62 percent higher than when President Obama took office.

  • COLUMN: Multitasking can kill concentration

    I know exactly when I lost the ability to concentrate, deeply and fully, on one thing at a time. I realized it one day when I was about 30 pages in to a 60-page history reading assignment in my freshman year of college. I was reading faster than I could process everything, and taking breaks to finish Spanish and French homework. Then it dawned on me: I hadn’t actually finished a book since freshman year began.

  • COLUMN: God expects us to study to mature spiritually

    Spiritual immaturity causes Christians to say immature things, make immature decisions and act in immature ways. It is God’s will we become spiritually mature. 

    The Bible says in II Peter 3:18, “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”          

    The Apostle Paul in I Corinthians 3:2-3 scolds the believers for their spiritual immaturity. They are on milk when they should be on meat. Would this describe many Christians that you know?
