I predicted in the last issue of The Common Good Network that Governor Rod Blagojevich would be removed from office in no less than three weeks. He was actually gone within six days.

Rod Blagojevich will not be the Governor of Illinois very much longer. His trial in the state senate is scheduled to begin on January 26th. Current estimates are that it will last for no longer than three weeks with removal from office the almost foregone conclusion.

Most of the world’s people – most
of us – are caught up in frittering their/our lives away. Even when
we make changes in our lives, those changes so often turn out to be
just tinkering changes that lead us back to frittering our lives away
in some different manner.

Most people think of "meek" as synonymous with "weak" or "faint-hearted." It is not regarded as a praiseworthy quality. But in the biblical Greek, the term connoted "humility," the opposite of "arrogant" or "abusive anger." In a broader sense, it is used to describe the openness to self-reflection and awareness of ourselves as creatures with limited power.
