Having spent some time trying to help couples who are struggling in their marriage, I have developed a habit of listening for much of the first few sessions. I answer questions posed to me, but I tend to not interject much.

According to multiple news agencies, over the past few months the Islamic State (ISIS) has determined theologically that its fighters can rape young women - girls, really - as long as they are Christians, Jews, or other "unbelievers." According to ISIS leaders, by doing so, the fighters become closer to God.

Recently, I was asked to share my administrative and managerial philosophies with others. One question posed to me was a first: "What are your non-negotiables?" While I certainly have those things I simply cannot bend on, I have never quite crystallized them or put them in writing.

When Ohio Governor John Kasich entered the presidential race last Tuesday, he brought with him an interesting dynamic. He is a Republican who sees Christianity as deeply personal, a factor that influences his decision-making. While that may be true of other candidates, Kasich does not allow the party line to affect his Christian-based views. And that's why he's different.

Pastors, who are often in the position of providing some comfort following a death, have a unique vantage point from which to recognize the most beneficial actions to a congregant's family upon the death of a loved one. Often, friends of the deceased are left at a loss, not knowing what should be said or done to be a balm to those grieving.

Over the years in the role as pastor, I have come to see that the death of a loved one (whether expected or unexpected) often leaves people feeling not only grief and a sense of loss, but also anxiety - anxiety over what they should be doing and feeling in the wake of such a personal tragedy. In that regard, please accept the following as friendly advice I see as consistent with the Christian faith.

This past week, I was reminded how important it is to keep the essentials of the Christian faith in mind. Too often, we Christians get wrapped up in tussles about the non-essentials. And it is precisely those non-essentials that often make the news, which keeps those outside the church from appreciating the essence of the faith.

Those who know me and have seen me walking around occasionally in orange and blue are aware that my undergraduate degree was from the University of Florida. If that troubles you, please be comforted with the knowledge that all my children have gone to the University of Georgia, and I have sent much more money to Athens than I ever sent to Gainesville.
