     One day last week a baby robin fluttered onto our deck, having successfully completed its first flight from its nearby nest.  It was followed by its mother.  She was anxious to show it how to fly upward to the nest area again.  It got me thinking about how wonderfully God created birds.      [...]

     One of the most profound of questions is the one posed by the Psalm, “What is man?” [Psalm 8:4].  Mankind stands alone in this world.  We share this earth with innumerable plants, animals, birds and fish, but man is truly unique – one of a kind.      He is unique in his existence.  [...]
