What Is Man that Thou art mindful’¦

Governor Arnold is suing over bobble-heads while another man’s father waits to die, languishing due in part, he believes, to President’s Bush’s religiously driven position on stem-cell research. For the first time ever in our nation gays were married legally.

My friend Phil Vischer, founder of Veggie Tales, is learning good lessons the hard way, but the pain is worth it if at the end the message from God is, “I love you Phil.”

Another grown man and professional psychologist is giddy with satisfaction because a fictional character named Tony Soprano had an extended and complex dream. Pastor Stuart Ritter’s ministry has been revolutionized by the good book, “ “Good to Great,” that is. In it we learn that “good is the enemy of great.” Plumb the depths of that one. I dare you. I feel like I’m in an episode of Robert Schuller.

And in more than 30 years writing about architecture, Herbert Muschamp has never been more excited about a new building than¢â‚¬¦the Seattle Library. “At a dark hour, Seattle’s new Central Library is a blazing chandelier to swing your dreams upon. If an American city can erect a civic project as brave as this one, the sun hasn’t set on the West.”

Most men live lives of quiet desperation. What is man that thou art mindful of him?

Yours for the pursuit of God in the company of friends, Dick Staub.

PS. And remember, “these are the best of times and the worst of times, but they are the only times we have.” (For Now).
