“Built God-Tough”

Ford Motor Company recently used a very unique phrase to market their line of pick-up trucks, “Built Ford-tough.” When I consider this phrase, I question whether being built “Ford-tough” is a good thing technically. I say this because one must consider that if something is built “Ford-tough” is that really tough enough. When I consider all of the trucks of every make and model and all of the problems associated with them, I have to say they all are pretty fallible and vulnerable to imperfection by far. While our Senior Pastor would agree that Ford trucks are better than most, they … [Read more...]

In 1941, Congress passed a bill designating the fourth Thursday of November as Thanksgiving Day. That history is interesting, but it leaves out a serious question. To who is thanks given? Many historians will … [Read more...]
