A recent news report caught my eye like a bright, shining diamond on a beautiful woman’s hand. The report was about “ring shaming” – the practice of posting a photograph of an engagement/wedding ring online and shaming the purchaser for being too cheap, having bad taste, or otherwise failing to communicate the high-value of his beloved by the ostentatious nature of the ring/diamond.
This past Sunday was Veteran’s Day. It corresponded with the one-hundredth anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I which made it an even more historic commemoration. In the worship service I attended, veterans of each branch of the military were saluted during a musical tribute. The worship leader asked each veteran to stand. He also asked immediate family members of veterans, including those who might be present, to stand.
It’s the week of a national election in our country and, no matter the outcome, pundits and pontificators will declare the results the end of western civilization. Not likely.
