Trivial Pursuit

The words trivial and trivia can be traced back to a Latin noun meaning “a place where three roads meet.” In time, it also came to mean “of little worth or importance.”  This is the main meaning of the word today. By this definition, the expression ‘trivial pursuit’ obviously refers to more than a boardContinue reading

Life Under the Sun

No matter where a person looks, no matter what direction he or she turns, there is no lasting satisfaction to be found—at least not in the temporal things of life.  The reason is that we’ve been made for eternity.  That is why only the eternal glory of God can fulfill the eternal void in theContinue reading

The GOAT, part 1

In the world of sports, there is debate centered around someone who is often referred to as ‘The G.O.A.T.”—the greatest of all time.
