Sowing Seeds

Hope in God

“Hope in God.”  Three small words. What they express, though, is huge.  They form a command, an exhortation, and a profound truth that is the key to a happy and fulfilled life. This is what every person in the universe wants—to be happy and fulfilled.  The problem for all of us is that we are […]


In Him All Things Hold Together

A few years ago, when my husband Rick and I came to help Bethlehem College & Seminary raise scholarship money, I was most familiar with the seminary.  One of our sons had graduated from it, and we had fallen in love with one of his roommates from Cameroon and “adopted” him into our family. In […]

As I lingered in the writings of Adam Smith during my preparation for this lecture, it […]
