The Great American Awakenings, Redux

November 16, 2020

We tend to think of ourselves pretty much at the center of the universe, and, in a way of course, we are. We are alive and everyone before us is gone, and those before us are unborn and in the future. But we are tied to the past, personally by our memories, and collectively as […]

The more things change, the more they stay the same

The saying is an old one in French, often quoted by the literati in the original–plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose– to sound more egg heady. So, I thought I would do the same and think for a moment like a literati instead of plain old Larry. Now let’s turn to Scripture and […]

Not too long ago I read an article, “After the Culture War,” by Barton Swain in his column on “Politics” in the WSJ, October 3-4. When I see the words “culture” and “wars” these days, or someone who actually calls himself a political something-or-another, or in this case a political writer, I usually turn to […]

Who to vote for? Why should I vote? What difference will it make? I’m only one vote. It won’t count for anything. NOT true! We are a free and democratic people and to remain so, and remain true to our principles and freedoms, we need to exercise the privilege and responsibility of voting. I have […]

  There is a great opportunity in the land opening up to us. It is free and largely apolitical although there may be some elements running beneath the surface that are “political.” In this day, less than two months away from probably the most important presidential election in a century there is hardly anything that […]

Why Are People So Angry?

September 13, 2020

I am baffled by the reign of anger that seems to be overwhelming some people today who are getting a lot of attention as we move to elect a new president on November 3.

I was watching my wife sewing the other day, down on her knees on a big enough space of the floor in the living room to make the initial cuts in her fabric. She learned to sew on a Singer sewing machine years ago and was now getting back in it. We bought her new […]
