How is Business?

Peter Drucker, a famous management consultant of the eighties and nineties, was famous for asking two successive questions. "What's is our main business?" - and - "How's business?"

The Joy of the Lord is My Strength

Does God have emotions? It seems clear that He does. Many different emotions are attributed to God in the Bible. When you picture/imagine God's face, what expression is on it? Is He angry, sad, somber or happy? Is He engaged, bored, or disinterested? What's His expression as He is looking at you?

It doesn't take long when contemplating God to realize that He is more than we can ever…

Park-ing Day this Friday! Make a park in a parking space...

I can't believe that JP isn't on this map.
I won't be able to create a park this year, but thought I'd pass it along in case any of you do. I'm going to take a bike ride up to Cambridge and Somerville to visit the parks that will be up there.

It's a day for turning metered parking spaces into parks!

Have you recently felt you deserved dinner, but your waiter passed you by? The first record of such feelings is in Gimelli 7.

He said, "Of His might and dominion, there is no compare; of His mercy and deliciousness, there is no equal. No other god can challenge Him; in the taste test, He is invincible." (Gimelli… Continue
