Praying for the wisdom of Solomon

At the inauguration today, the invocation asked God to give President Biden the “wisdom of Solomon.” Actually, it was the wisdom of God.

Now two women who were harlots came to the king, and stood before him.

Turning the page

As the nation turns the page on administrations tomorrow, there is a news headline from last week that sits right on the line which demonstrates the stark difference in how the two administrations see the world.


We rightly mourn and recognize this behavior as wrong.

We also note how close they were to half the nation having no problem with this kind of behavior.

Three major life choices

46 years ago today, Linda Gail Hansen married Thomas Edward Christensen at the North Side Gospel Center, 3859 N Central Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60634 at 4:00 P.M. Central Time.

This is the message they included in their program:
We are both very glad you are able to share with us this very important and special occasion in our lives. In every person's life come three major choices: ETERNAL DESTINY, LIFE-WORK, and LIFE-PARTNER.

Each of these decisions answers a major question:

• With whom shall I share eternity?
• With whom shall I share my message and purpose for living?
• With whom shall I share my heart?

Cultural Resiliency

How are we doing, America?

Apparently some think that a good way to answer that question is by asking, “What scares you most about the coming year?”

Things people fear:

Frank Luntz summarized:
  • “They're afraid.”
  • “They're petrified.”
  • “They're nervous that the country won't be the same America that they remember.”
  • “They're nervous that the social and the cultural aspects of the country are changing.”

When liberals hear such resistance to social and cultural change, they conclude conservatives are racists who “don't like black and brown people.” This is not correct.

America is changing in multiple ways, and there is a lot of nuance to how those changes work out. Changes in the racial composition of this country are not the same as changes in its ideological composition.

Tech lanes

There's a limit to how much complexity a system can handle, especially when going outside one's longtime area of expertise.

Microsoft has long been a software company. It may be software that deals directly with hardware, but it's still primarily been about software.

The Surface line of products is an example of Microsoft venturing beyond software into hardware.
