This NYTimes article has a little fun with the traditional definition of success, but it really struck a chord with me. So many of us feel stuck by the definition of a successful life (often defined in dollar signs). Why do we have to wait until we retire to have the life we want? How can we change society’s definition of success? Or does that even matter . . . maybe we only have to change our own definition.
What do you want to be when you retire? Is there a way you could be that right now?

As reported on KY3 this weekend, food stamp cuts in our nation will impact 1 in 6 families across the Ozarks. One of the organizations we support, Crosslines, featured on KY3, shows our own Kim Zimmerman working in the food pantry. While continuing to donate our resources and time to organizations like Crosslines will be critical to helping people get food, we are still left wondering, what more can we do?
When you were young, what was your answer to the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
- We’d love to know. Post your answer as a comment.

- We will also have a bulletin board at church available for actual, hard-copy pictures, if that is more your style.
This is poet Mary Oliver (b. 1935), reading one of her best known poems. Enjoy.
In which Jon Stewart (one of my favorites) and Marilynne Robinson (whom I can’t claim as a favorite but am aware I should) talk about the conversation between science and religion.
