If you have ever wondered why Jesus said that one had to come to the Kingdom of Heaven as a little child, maybe this video offers an explanation.
In a social experiment conducted by Meir Kay, children were offered a dollar bill and given the option to spend it on ice cream or a nearby beggar.

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said that Barack Obama was "raised white" and cannot truly identify with the typical black experience in America.
"He's an 'African' American. He was, you know, raised white," Carson said to Politico Tuesday regarding President Obama. "I mean, like most Americans, I was proud that we broke the color barrier when he was elected, but … he didn't grow up like I grew up … Many of his formative years were spent in Indonesia. So, for him to, you know, claim that, you know, he identifies with the experience of black Americans, I think, is a bit of a stretch."
Carson, who grew up on the southwest side of Detroit, once lived in a Boston ghetto and was raised by a single mom who could not read and juggled three jobs, feels that his background makes him more representative of the struggle of many blacks. more >>

It's pretty cool when Congress names a special task force after you. It's even cooler when that task force makes recommendations that advance the cause of justice.
In 2014, in an all-too-rare case of bipartisan cooperation, Congress created the Charles Colson Task Force on Federal Corrections to tackle what many have called a crisis in the federal prison system.
Why they named it after Chuck was pretty clear. In the words of the Task Force: "Chuck Colson, who served time in federal prison and upon release founded the world's largest prison ministry, was a vigorous advocate on behalf of the incarcerated at a time when criminal justice reform had virtually no support on either side of the aisle. We salute his leadership and we are grateful for the chance to move the cause forward with our efforts." more >>
Every year, Christians around the world and in many different denominations observe the liturgical season of Lent.
Lent falls between Ash Wednesday and East Sunday and is a period of 40 days plus Sundays wherein many Christians, especially Roman Catholics, give up something as an act of spiritual discipline.
Lent is based off of Jesus' time in the desert, in which for 40 days He fasted and prayed and was tempted by the devil before angels came and tended to Him. more >>
