    Well, this article has been hanging out there all day surprisingly with no comment. So I will just say, good words, Michael.

    I pray for strength and comfort for John as his son recovers from this.

    I pray for Peter John Courson that he would indeed recover and be made completely whole in each and every cell and fiber of his being in the name of Jesus Christ.

    Bless this family and surround them with Your incredible love and warm presence during this trying time dear Jesus.

    I like this post Michael. I am going to make up a word now: I am an aCalvinist. Meaning, that I am not a Calvinist and really don’t care either way. I am not privy to Calvin’s history, nor Columbus’ history. I am not much of a history buff anyways. Anyways, I love what you said in this post. Seems to echo the much larger culture wars that we live in.

    As an aside, you mentioned in a comment in a previous post that you were observing Indigenous Peoples Day rather than Columbus Day in your house. Did you do something special? My wife recently befriended a woman who is part Sioux. I also have an interest in learning some Lakota, one of the dialects of the Sioux Nation.

    Trey has always had a fascination with the native peoples of North America so they were the focus of Columbus Day here.
    We were going to go to a ceremonial pow wow but he wasn’t feeling well enough to do so.
