We've all heard the public apologies of company spokespersons, sports figures, politicians, movie stars or celebrities.

Many years ago, when my son was about two years old, I used to carry him around on my shoulders and attempt to teach him important things about life.

The shofar trumpet mentioned in the Bible was made from a ram’s horn. It was blown by the priests of God for various purposes. Like today’s siren, which makes a loud, attention-getting sound, the blast of the shofar also demanded people’s attention.

For anyone keenly observing today’s world scene, an undercurrent of shamelessness soon becomes very clear. You’ll see it in everything.

And this cultur ...…
 
People have all kinds of fears. Even the bravest among us, though they may not like to admit it, have a fear or two lurking in the mind.

Depression plagues many people. I’m not talking about having a bad day or feeling blue, which everyone experiences now and then.
