Paul Littleton reminded us yesterday of a quote by George Burns on preaching a good sermon. "The secret of a good sermon is to have a good beginning and a good ending, then having the two as close together as possible."
I think the same principle applies to blogs. Sometimes we lose our perspective with so much material between our beginning and our ending. Recently I read an article from EthicsDaily.com that did a good job in summarizing some of the events of the last six months.
Some will refuse to even read this column because of the editor's support of the CBF, and just the fact I refer you to the article will lead some to call me a CBF sympathizer. That causes me to chuckle. More than a few have written said that I am one of the most disliked men by the CBF in Oklahoma for various reasons I won't go into here. However, any lack of affection between me and the CBF does not stop me from appreciating good reporting.
Sometimes it is helpful to remember the big picture and this EthicsDaily.com article scripts a broad summary in George Burns fashion --- the beginning and the ending come close together.
In His Grace,
