    ArticleDeeply Held Religious Cake

    When a person begins to unravel the various meanings in the Masterpiece Cakeshop Ltd., et al v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission decision, recently rendered by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS), it becomes quickly obvious that what this ruling means in legal terms and what it means in the daily lives of LGBTQ+ American citizens is incredibly different.

    ArticleD-Day

    We recently celebrated our war veterans on Memorial Day and last week marked the 74th anniversary of the historic D-Day invasion. During World War II (1939-1945), the three month Battle of Normandy, (June - August 1944), resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. Operation Overlord, as the battle was codenamed, began June 6, 1944, when 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of the Normandy region of France.

    ArticleKeep it Simple

    I believe God empowers each of us to look at the most complicated problems with Divine simplicity. That is the beauty of the dissent written by Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Monday’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in a 7-2 ruling in Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd., et al v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. Justice Ginsburg lays it out clearly and simply. In eleven short paragraphs, she makes it plain. Justice Ginsburg also gets it right.

    As a military family, you know all-too-well that there are times when you or your spouse will be called away for duty, often without much – or any – warning. As a service member, you might get called into the field. However, when you are the parent left at home, whether you've had plenty of warning or given a day's notice of the deployment, there are a few ways you can help make life easier. Don't stress! Parenting is hard enough on its own. Accept the help of others and look for resources to make your daily life easier.

    When I sleep
    I sleep upside down

    My soles rooted in reality

    ArticleVeterans and the 2nd Amendment

    It was a different time, and I was a different man then.  It’s not easy to draw a straight line from there, where guns seemed a natural part of my life to now where the sight of the protesting Parkland students fill me with renewed hope for the future of this nation. It is not that I think that any single gun control measure alone would be a panacea, but we need to have the conversation about all the factors that go into gun deaths, including suicide. This is a necessary step in our growth as a country.

    ArticleRev. Julie Johnson Staples receives Emily Taylor...

    Since 1970, the Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity has honored a select group of women to be inducted into the University of Kansas Women’s Hall of Fame. It honors and celebrates KU’s rich legacy of women who, through their transformational leadership and contributions, have changed the world.

    “These women we are honoring this year are leaders and trailblazers in their respective fields who have made substantial contributions through their vision, innovation, creativity and willingness to challenge the status quo. They remind us of the importance of women’s voices, contributions and courage in advancing gender equity.  They have opened doors — holding them open for young women and people of all genders — to follow,” said Kathy Rose-Mockry, the Emily Taylor Center’s director.
