NASHVILLE (BP) – I visibly cringe every time the word “civility” is used around me. I hate it. On the face of it, “civility” is one of those things that everyone supports – like “patriotism” or “family” or “honor.” But our civility is often limited to whether or not we agree with the other person. As a follower of Jesus Christ, I am repelled by the word “civility” because it aspires to too little. We are called not to mere civility, but beyond civility to kindness.
NASHVILLE (BP) – Since the end of February 2020, I have carried a deep and increasing burden about the following things:

VINCENT, Ala. (BP) -- After 45 years, astronauts landed in the drink again. It was the first ever Gulf of Mexico space capsule landing. The event garnered lots of news coverage.
