On Faith: Koyaanisqatsi, an unbalanced life
When I struggle to describe the tumultuous times we are living in, a word that comes to mind is "koyaanisqatsi," which in the Hopi language means "unbalanced life" or "life in disorder."

On faith: Aging well
An older friend surprised me some time ago when he said that it was no fun growing old. My surprise was due to the fact that I had just complimented him on staying in shape and working out at the local gym. When I asked why he felt the way he did, he described a long list of ailments...

On Faith column: Replace conflict with peace
One of life's great challenges is the inability to peacefully resolve conflicts. We criticize others for their inability to deal with conflicts, yet we critics are sometimes no better at resolving our own conflicts. We withhold forgiveness, don't listen, gossip, and slander. Even...
