“Break It Up” by Ed Dunn

We received a distressing email from our Mom the other day. Both the tone and the content of her words were uncharacteristic, and alarmed my brothers and sisters and me to a point of picking up the phone. Over a series of calls at different times, we needed to make sure she was okay. Our Mom’s message expressed a deep concern for everything that’s been happening in our nation today - the political divides, the racial divides, the economic divides, and the fact that no one seems to be listening to anyone, anymore. She lamented how far we’ve come, so fast, and that, not in a positive direction. She then went on to worry about the world her ...

A Marathon, Not a Sprint by Ed Dunn

Isaiah 40:31 (NIV) – “…but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint…” Chariots of Fire I remember this verse well from my youth.  The year was 1981 and the hit movie, Chariots of Fire, had just been released to widespread appeal and critical acclaim.  In one of the most memorable scenes within the movie for me, the Scottish sprinter, Olympian and missionary, Eric Liddell, stood in the midst of a cold rain surrounded by soaked yet eager on-listeners.  As the wind blew, he recounted these poetic words ...

I must confess – Ed Dunn

I must confess I enjoy a special tradition on the morning of each new New Year’s Day.  With my college Sophomore, Lauren, upstairs and still fast-asleep, I like to bundle up, coffee up with a large “to-go” thermos and sneak quietly out of the house.  The sun is rarely up as I do. What could be my destination so early on the first day of each new year?  That’s simple.  I like to make my way with the crowds of excitable spectators hurriedly streaming southward towards a world-famous piece of real estate.  I like to join in with one million or so other fans on their way to the narrow sidewalks of Colorado Boulevard.&...

Can We Talk? by Ed Dunn

Life “sheltering in place” these days has had its share of challenges for all of us.  For more than eleven weeks now, I’ve shared my home, again, with my twenty-year-old daughter, Lauren.  I say “again” because, as a “Third-Year” at a California university, Lauren has been home from school and back with me taking classes online due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.  Let’s just say we’ve had plenty of time and opportunity to talk. As a father and daughter, we have talked about the recent events we as a nation, and the world, really, have experienced together on the critical topics of race relations, ...
