I Laugh When I Remember These

Young Lawrence has been watching his Grandpa as the old man read from the Bible. After a while, Lawrence went to his Grandma and asked her in a quiet voice: "Grandma, why is Grampa always reading the Bible?" Grandma answered: "Your Grampa is cramming for his Final exam." Mr. and Mrs. Brown always... Sign in to see full entry.

Male Spirituality?

Yesterday, we had a Parish Renewal Experience seminar where I was one of the speakers. While taking a break, I had the chance to chat with the head organizers.

Taking A Front Seat: Educating Through The Web

A teacher I know has been so desperate to get money from the school that he used the death of his mother as an excuse for getting assistance of about P 6000.00 (that would be about $107).

There was a time when Filipino television used to show a lot of movies based on famous Broadway plays. "South Pacific," "Oklahoma", "The Sound of Music", "Camelot", "Westside Story."

A Smashed Guitar

I recently bought a Yamaha acoustic guitar. I have always wanted to have one of my own ever since I got involved in youth ministry. It is easier to reach out to young people when one can play a guitar and is able to sing their songs. But everytime I stroke a guitar, I remember the image of a smashed... Sign in to see full entry.
