Nashville, TN – This is a column about how the past can catch up with the future in the blink of an eye: how something you thought was in place forever, can suddenly change and possibly disappear. I’m not talking about a relationship. They can develop and vanish, of course. No, I’m talking about the built environment around us.
Think about it; we walk down our same streets or blocks most every day, passing the same stores, wave back to the same people outside their home or shops—and in general—we expect things to stay the way they are.
An exercise in homelessness.
Clarksville, TN – The biggest event of this day was that I got to take a shower. It was the first one since last Wednesday night, and trust me that it was a worship experience in itself—not to mention using a real toilet and not feeling rushed. Oh, the things we take for granted.
You know, there are a lot of talented people riding the bus, living in shelters, or even sleeping in tents and under bridges. Yesterday morning at the bus stop, I noticed a young man with a sketchpad and pencils.

Tennessee Department of Health says Parents need to discuss Sexually Transmitted Diseases with their Children
Nashville, TN – Sex. It’s a difficult topic for many parents to discuss with their children, but those conversations may save a life or prevent pain and suffering from a sexually transmitted disease.
“There are more than 20 sexually transmitted diseases and while all are preventable, not all are curable,” said Carolyn Wester, MD, MPH, medical director of the TDH HIV/STD Section. “Some are deadly, some can cause permanent damage to the reproductive and nervous systems, and some can cause bouts of pain for the rest of a person’s life.
