The Narrow Road | July 2014



…is a big issue in our society.  It is perhaps a bigger issue in the motorcycling community.  Several years ago while working the gate at a motorcycle event, I was approached by several bikers sporting serious attitude.  Although I treated them with respect, they apparently felt entitled to more.  Without going into details, suffice to say I was treated in a disrespectful way.  For the sake of peace, I chose to allow these men their moment of power and ignore their behavior.  The look of satisfaction on their faces was evidence enough that they considered themselves men worthy of great respect.  The sad reality is that they had my respect right up until they copped an attitude.  That’s when they forfeited my respect.

The Narrow Road


June 2014

Bob_Anton_Narrow_RoadIs it important to you to be remembered? I mean once your dead and gone, is it important to you now for people to remember who you are, or what you have accomplished in your life? Great and powerful men have ensured that they will be remembered by being immortalized on currency or in the naming of ships or towns or cities.

The Narrow Road – April 2014


Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project


As I pondered what to write about for this month’s edition of The Narrow Road, I came across an e-mail sent to me by my cousin.  It was one of those provocative form letter type e-mails that makes the rounds.  The type that is intended to illicit a response of anger or frustration against someone, usually a politician or government agency.  As is my usual practice, I looked it up on SNOPES.com to see if it was true, false or a combination of the two.

Pray for the Young Person


I awoke this morning to a text from my son in Florida.  Seems he was up late last night talking to a friend who has been having thoughts of suicide.  This is common place for my son.  He’s been ministering to people in this way since he was in Junior High School.  I guess it makes sense that he is now pursuing his Master’s degree in Psychology.
