Quick Hits: Dan Cathy did right. The healthcare form you need. Periodic spices.

  • READ. MOR. QUIK HITZ.Last year, while all of the controversy surrounding Chick-Fil-A was rumbling and roaring, the company’s CEO, Dan Cathy, was responding  in the best way his heart could conceive of. He contacted the organizer of the campaign against his company, and started a conversation. An honest, open conversation that covered not just the sources of their struggles with each other’s viewpoints, but also the ways they share common ground. As a result, they became friends and a part of each other’s lives. It’s easy to automatically despise and dismiss your opponent’s arguments when they’re just one more in a faceless mass of “those people.” I applaud Dan Cathy for not accepting the easy road. It was the right thing to do. It’s what a Christian should do.
  • When I say ‘Christian,’ I mean ‘active follower of Jesus Christ.’ If you attend a church once in a while and use your best recollection of scripture from Sunday School as a guide to pick who to vote for, I’m not talking about you. Sorry.

Quick Hits: 2013 healthcare changes. Fasting from facebook. Water into wine cooler.

  • Whether you love or hate the PPACA (A.K.A. “Obamacare”), you need to realize that those thousands of pages of new legislation is going to have a direct impact on your day to day expenses and what kinds of coverage you have. No matter if you prefer to believe the shiny promises or the gloomy predictions, you can’t afford to be surprised by higher premiums and tax changes. Here are a list of seven changes that are coming down the pipe for healthcare in 2013. You won’t be able to prepare for it if you don’t know what’s in it.
  • It’s the season of Lent, and it seems like we’re inundated with people who are fasting from facebook. Well, sort of. More like, “I’m fasting from facebook for Lent, but every time I do anything else online it updates my facebook status and each time you can see my profile image that clearly states that I’m fasting from facebook for Lent.”  I love Jon Acuff’s take on this phenomenon, because it rings so true. Especially Step 2. Anyway, for Lent, I’ve given up people who are fasting from facebook for Lent. Maybe I should write a blog post about it. No, I think one post about facebook is enough, for now.
