Happiness:  A Capital Asset? Ask an accountant what a capital asset is and you will be told that it is an asset owned to generate a profit, but is not easily sold for cash in the normal course of business operations.

A Joyful Outing That I Almost Wrecked - My friends from church had planned a great outing to the park, peddling a four-seat surrey around the lake. However,  the whole thing almost didn’t come off, because of a joke taken the wrong way. Two weeks before my friend, “Angela” (not her real name), texted me, asking if I had received a photo of […]

Putting Faith in Your Investments -  As investment professionals, when we think about investments, we think about asset classes: stocks, bonds, hedge funds and the like. As theologians, when we think about investments, we think about “assets” somewhat differently. The challenge is for each to understand the value and insight of the other. In Jesus’ classic teaching on discipleship, we are […]
