Regina's Ruminations: A Blog

July 18, 2020

We have had a tumultuous and turbulent few months!  From violent reactions to folks being told to simply cover mouth and nose to an ever-troubling break from all that is real and true by a cult operating within the bounds of our country.  Knee-jerk irrationality has be...

The last few weeks and months have been a challenge! And now there is COVID-19. Help us Lord.  I actually had tickets to go the NCAA Women’s tournament – the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 – to see the #1 Lady Gamecocks of South Carolina.  This was the one time I wanted the NCAA...

I was sitting in the courtroom, hoping I could make it through this time.  Unlike most people, I have a desire to serve on a jury.  I registered to vote as soon as I turned 18 and had registered in every place I lived beyond then.  Still, I never got a call to even com...

The year 2013 was an awesome year, a gruesome year, a wonderful year, a chaotic year, a new beginning, a horrific ending, an enlightening experience, a torturous exploration and a most blessed year of the Lord.   I know we suffered through way too many more examples of...

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about homogeneity and the groupthink that is often a by-product of it.  All of it makes me hurt (see blog six).  Loosely homogeneous groups lack divergent perspectives and discriminable points of view.    As a consequence, groupthink (de...
