Stepping up the the Plate to Be a Better Brother
August 31st, 2021

I write this coming back home for the first time after several months of mission.  The window on my plane flight home presents to me a cloudy sky lit ablaze by the waning sunset.

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility… and with Great Responsibility Comes Great Chastity
August 6th, 2020

It’s been said across almost every form of media, comics, cartoons, movies and more. With great power comes great responsibility; a simple sentence that becomes the guiding principle for one of the world’s most popular superheroes. Spider-man’s mission statement is unique because it tells us not what he does but why he does it. This…
