Modern Science Can Thank the Christian Worldview: Check out this video from Stephen Myer (Ph.D. Cambridge): How Christianity Gave Rise to Modern Science

Celebrate Big as a Couple/Family: Our four-year-old daughter started ballet yesterday. I was going to let my wife take her and the toddler while the rest of us stayed home. After all, there is plenty of work to do online. Although only my wife could go in, I decided to go. I’m glad we did. All day, including the drive, we talked about how big of a day it was. We made it special. We smiled and celebrated! I think that it is so important to have a home where little and big things are celebrated. Make a big deal about your kid! Make them feel special. What is your family culture?

Criticism: Always be willing to hear it. Yesterday someone emailed me after posting a blog and expressed concerns with language that I had used along with a counterargument. I read it carefully. It was both insightful and well-written. Avoiding echo chambers is crucial; no human being is infallible. It is lamentable that often, as a person grows older, they become so entrenched in what they think that they can no longer imagine that they might be wrong. But what is the goal? To be right? To defeat others? To come out on top? Or to grow?!
