Horse Sense at the Arivaca Boys Ranch

If you want to help kids, don’t join a grievance-mongering protest group and campaign for social justice – just help the kids. That’s what Ron Searle did, when he started the non-profit Arivaca Boys Ranch. Ron had worked with young men for over 20 years as a teacher, in church-related and Boy Scout activities. More recently, he had been developing a therapeutic program for kids, involving the care of horses. Risky as it was to leave his profession; Searle’s heart drove him to develop this program, and to implement it in a ranch setting for young men. Several years ago,...

Obama and the Whale

Most of us have heard of the story of Jonah, recounted in the Bible, in the Book of Jonah. Jonah was a great prophet of the northern kingdom of Israel. Jonah was told by the Lord to go to Nineveh, a pagan Mesopotamian city on the eastern bank of the Tigris River. At that time, Nineveh, the Capital of Ashur, “Assyria,” was Israel’s greatest enemy. It was a wicked place. It would be like walking into Mosul today, with ISIS in charge. In fact, that’s exactly where Mosul is today – in and about the ancient city of Nineveh....
