Hope

Faith, Hope, and Charity, the three divine, sublime virtues of a devout soul.... Hope is the evidence of things unseen, the steadfast love and faithfulness and trust that God is there, or perhaps that name is too tainted and tattered to be used in a reverent way, abused as it has been by so many for...

Do You Thank God for the Nitrogen in the Air, or only for the Oxygen?

Your interest in religion and spiritual matters emboldens me to suggest the following little scientific investigation. In it you will produce oxygen and place smoldering objects in the oxygen to see what would happen if the atmosphere God has given us is "right" for us. After all, it's only about...

At the time, years ago, religious orders allowed the newcomers to chose and be known by a saint's name, and asked them to give up their secular name, so we did not even know the ethnic background of our...

TWAINMAN'S WEBSITE

Religion and Spirituality are part of my world, maybe the main part, along with family and love, of course, but somehow I was once named to Who's Who in Science and Engineering (Marquis is the publisher), and I've published more in that area than any other, mostly related to science education.

The "Economy of Salvation" vs The Lord's Prayer

I was a LaSallian Christian Brother, and taught in the south and southwest for eight years, had a lot of wonderful friends, taught wonderful students (all boys at the time), and enjoyed more success and recognition than I deserved.

Something deep inside is moving him. . .

I heard from a gentleman today, a retired Baptist preacher and pastor, and his words made we feel as if I were glowing. I hope to post the lyrics for Day Glow when I learn to put sound to them and post them, if that's possible. Sometimes you just can't express what you feel or want to say in written...
