Threats In The World We Live In

When I was growing up I would wake up every morning to graphic news reports of the war in Vietnam. In elementary school, during the Cuban missile crisis, we did practice drills of hiding under our desks in case of bomb attacks. I lived in south Florida, so the threat was close. Parents Want to […]

Stand Up For True Love

Love is under attack! Love is being slandered, degraded, misused and abused. It’s time to rescue love from the clutches of the dark side! Maybe you have a good marriage, a happy family, and the moral character to know right from wrong – but look around – your children and the future are not safe. […]

The Blessing of Love

The DP from a UT perspective featured photo, the painting“Rebirth” by Benny Andersson Last month, we’d explained the last sentences of the First Blessing in the Exposition of the Divine Principle (p. 34).

LOVE – What more could you want? Okay, everyone also needs food, shelter, clothing, a meaningful way to earn a living, and so forth. But if you think those things through they all make their way back to love. When you were born your loving parents provided all those things for you, and as you […]

Finding True Love in Virtues

Creating Love between Partners I found a list of “horizontal” virtues 40 years ago, when I was just out of college and had despaired of ever finding true romantic love. I couldn’t imagine finding a girl who’d be faithful to me for life. And in truth, I couldn’t imagine that I had it in me […]

Puppy Love

Puppy love is more than just a test of your gag reflex. God invented it. This little blogito began on an Amtrak train stalled in Philadelphia Station. The polar vortex had downed some lines north of Trenton. A conductor strolled by and I heard his radio say “… squak… crackle… sixty to ninety minutes…”. “We’re […]

A beautiful Christmas story

At Christmas, what is love if not sacrifice? True story. I sold my beautiful heirloom mahogany and glass display case to get enough money to buy Taeko an exquisite mother-of-pearl safety guard for her chainsaw. She  opened her gift and began to smile while weeping softly at the same time. “What’s the matter, honey?” I […]

Wonderful, stupid, romantic love

And really, who wouldn’t rather sink than call Brad for help? Roy Lichtenstein’s iconic oil painting from 1963, Drowning Girl, nails contemporary teen romance like no other work of art.
