Engel Update 2017

The Pool Table After many years of wanting one, we finally have a place where we can put a pool table. So in early January (01/02/17) we got one. It was fascinating to watch it being put together (complicated!), but the delivery/set-up guys loved where it was going (right inside our front door!). Best of…


Engel Update 2016

2016 has been an interesting year for the Engel family.  And it started out white! Snow in Tennessee!   So yes, it does snow in Tennessee!  This picture is from a Friday morning early in the year.  Sure enough, we got a call that afternoon that church was canceled for Sunday due to the snow….

In The Baptist Faith and Message Section VI.

A Senator in Heaven

While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Senator (that may be redundant) is tragically hit by a car and dies.   …


Burwell v. Hobby Lobby – What was decided.

If you follow the news, politics or the courts at all, you’ve probably heard about the Hobby Lobby decision.  I’ve heard a lot of hype and hyperbole on both sides of this decision and wanted to discuss this decision from a purely Constitutional standpoint. At it’s heart, the question in Hobby Lobby was can the…


Join our new Constitution Study

{jcomments off}Many of you may have noticed the lack of understanding of what the Constitution says.  There are many opinions, some make sense others not so much, but relatively few seem to be based on what the Constitution actually says. John Jay said we should all read and study the Constitution to better know and assert our…


“Common Sense Gun Laws”?

There has been a lot of talk lately about the need for “common sense” gun laws.  But what are common sense gun laws?…
