How Not to Choose a Religion

Ever look at a dinner menu and have a difficult time deciding what to eat? My wife and I have eaten out at a local eatery called Standard Pour. More than once I have had trouble picking out what I wanted to eat because I was tempted to try something new, but more often than not, I personally tend to stick with something I know I like. So does my oldest daughter Sarah and my son Jed. My youngest daughter Rebecca, and my middle daughter Beth will usually try something new. My wife?

Two and  Out

Two and Out. That is a wrestling term I have learned since my son Jed started wrestling in High School. It is referring to wrestling tournaments in which a wrestler who has two losses is out of the tournament. The past couple days were both a two and out for he and I. We both went to Sacramento for wrestling, but I also went to visit some Hindu temples in Sacramento to chat with the Pandit, (priest), and inquire about their religion, beliefs, practices, and how it compares to Christianity. We were up about 4 AM and I drove him early to school. The team left before 6 AM, but I left a few...
