Hailing Frequencies Closed

Leonard Nimoy, the multi-talented man who simply was Mr. Spock, is dead at 83. In many respects, one cannot think of Star Trek without thinking of Spock. His character was somewhat replicated in other series such as Voyager and Enterprise but no one could compare to the original Vulcan.


Recently, I introduced my daughter to Star Trek. She already has a love for Star Wars but to truly appreciate Star Trek requires starting with The Original Series. We've watched over a dozen episodes of the first season. Her favorite character is Spock. She enjoys "his look" with raised eyebrow often directed at Kirk and his moments with women. "They do a lot of kissing in Star Trek," she said. One can't deny that Kirk was a lady's man.

Whether or not there were plans to include him in the next reboot movie, it's delightful that Spock made appearances in the two reboots as well as The Next Generation. Few actors can obtain such an iconic role in the hearts and minds of people.

I chose the image of this post as it featured the main characters of TOS. Spock, Kirk, Bones, and Scotty. Of them, only Kirk - William Shatner - is still with us. We are fortunate to still have Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, Walter Koenig, and Grace Lee Whitney. Screen treasures and more.

Indeed, you did live long and prosper, Mr. Nimoy. Warp speed.

I shared recently with a friend who is processing a difficult situation that he and I were in our own "swamps." It's difficult, frustrating, confusing, easy to get bogged down, scary, and has lots challenges. But if we weren't there, we would never learn what the Lord is trying to teach us.

My layoff is like a swamp.

See You Around, Mike

Three weeks ago, I attended the memorial service of a dear Brother in Christ. Sunday, June 10, would've been his 56th birthday.
I miss my friend. But what's sad is that I didn't miss Mike until he was gone.

At least in the middle of the odd month, but definitely by the last week of it, Mike would always reach out to me with a request. It was usually to load a certain worship music video or some game show music. Sometimes, he needed some specific slides created or sound effects. Mike put a lot of thought into preparing the lessons.

For certain lessons, Mike asked the kids to write something that was bothering them or something that was a sin. Then he had them take hammer and nail to that card and attach it to an old rugged cross. Mike often brought in props to physically connect the Bible stories to the kids. For example, when he dressed as an innkeeper and walked in a wheelbarrow full of fresh cow manure. He was adding the smell of a barn to the lesson just to help set th…
