Lola’s Kitchen: Tailgating — food and football …

Football season is here and so is tailgating. Anyone who knows me knows I love football. The closest NFL team is the San Diego Chargers, and they are my favorite team!

Off the Leash: Are fear and love motivation or purpose?

Is it better to be feared or loved? This question was posed by Machiavelli in his book “The Prince” back in the 1500s. The question possesses both political and religious ramifications. As a lifelong Christian, I’ve often wrestled with this schizophrenic notion of God. On one hand, we have the demanding and wrathful God found […]
