Welcome, Pkarlgh! The birthday party prep is in full swing, and 5-year-old Emery was given the best chore ever!
This reminds John of a new segment idea: Is This a Joke?!

Finally, it’s mail time! How can we be respectful toward our bodies as temples and have dignity as Christians made in God’s image–while we’re laughing at everything?

And what does Cami’s experience on a roller coaster have to do with struggling to be dignified?
Finally, we wrap up with a quick Whirl from the Peaches. Christians have historically been very Libertarian-leaning. (Small government, free markets, etc.) But we don’t live in a moral society anymore. We can’t value “free choice” at all costs–when our neighbors are “choosing” to kill babies.
