Gimme Shelter: It’s on My To-Watch List

Gimme Shelter tickets

From the press release I received yesterday: Pro-life champion Kathy DiFiore has had a remarkable life filled with redemption and hope. A suburban wife and mother, she escaped an abusive marriage only to find herself homeless and on the street. She focused on saying the prayer of St. Francis and eventually was able to reclaim her […]

The Haiyan Effect: Our Call to Respond


Last week, as Super Typhoon Haiyan was unfolding, I blogged at the Register and kept myself as close as I could to the situation. And then my life hit.
