Vote

Do you vote? I belong to that generation (Boomers, Busters, whatever you want to call us) that shows up to vote. I vote in every election. I vote early because I do not like lines but if I have to wait in line to vote, I will wait in line to vote. President to dogContinue Reading

My Day is Not My Day…

Today I had a plan. Plans are important. I guess they are useless, however. I got to my coffee shop with a plan in mind. All the things I wanted to do were good things. A young man I do not know came over, held out his hand, and said, “i need to talk toContinue Reading

Sunday Evening, 2 September, 2018

We will baptize two young women on Sunday evening. Natalie and Windy came to us from some jail somewhere. We do not have a baptistry so we bought a trough. I suppose if a manger was good enough for a crib for the Boss, a steel trough will do for our girls. We love themContinue Reading

A Tired Walker, a Hot Day, A Dirt Road

He was bent or so it looked to me. He was old or so it seemed to me. I passed him easily. I was young. He looked down at the dirt road. He did not look up at me even after I got by him. I know he did not look at me even afterContinue Reading

To Write

  The first time I write a piece I draw it from my heart. The heart part, the first, that’s the real piece. If that is enough, the piece you write, the first one, from your heart, it will leave you alone. The first piece will not call out to you at night. You mayContinue Reading

The Necessity of the Christ for a Good Life

On Resurrection Sunday a few years ago, numerous pastors of churches in a fading mainline American denomination rose to deny Jesus. The statement dozens of these heretics had agreed upon was spoken as in unison. They said, “Jesus, called the Christ, if he ever actually existed, was certainly not the  divine Son of God andContinue Reading

Prayers for Peace: Friday, June 8, 2018

The recent events in the Conservative Resurgence version of the Southern Baptist Convention caused various persons who remember me from the old days to reach out for some thoughts from me. It is true I fought early and hard for the now long dead SBC, but those days are long behind me. For continued thoughtsContinue Reading

Writer’s Note II-On the Sabbath Day (Christian)-Discrimen

I am writing in this space about Jesus, whom I call the Christ. His name is part name, part title, as are most of our names, if we know them. If we do not know the title that is our name, no matter. we seek titles to put before and after our names, cluttering ourContinue Reading

Perfect Villian, Post Two

Months ago I promised a second post to the one just previous to this one. I promised it “tomorrow.” Months ago. My tomorrows almost never get here.   The Perfect Villain, Post Two Long, long ago, before the word villain meant evil, or enemy, it meant ordinary. Plainness was villainy. Commonness implied evil, denoted theContinue Reading

A Perfect Villain

A Perfect Villain by Rick Davis Day One     The trap most certain to catch and hold us is one we set for ourselves. Current American culture with its hodgepodge of Traditionalists, Moderns and Whatever Comes After (including Gen-Xers, Millenials, et al) may soon complete its trade-off from a society with some agreement onContinue Reading
