    ERICKSON: Pause and reflect

    I once heard a preacher tell of being relatively new to ministry and having to go to a hospital because a lady and her child had been in a car wreck. The child died. The preacher did not know what to say. He tried to find the words. As he began to speak, the lady’s best friend came into the...


    ERICKSON: Can we spare one man?

    Columnist Ann Coulter sparked controversy over her recent column on Dr. Kevin Brantly. Brantly is the Christian missionary who contracted Ebola and is now in Atlanta for treatment. Coulter referred to him as an “idiot” and argued, in part, American Christian missionaries should work...


    ERICKSON: The Nunn memo revelations

    Michelle Martin is the Democrats’ nominee to run for the United States Senate in Georgia. Martin has just one problem -- she is not really Georgian. She went to a private school in the Washington, D.C. area. She is a creature of the Washington beltway. But the Democrats decided to draw her...


    ERICKSON: Pet peeves

    The kids and I are slowly making our way through the Harry Potter series. We are just about to dive under the water to rescue friends from the mermaids in the Goblet of Fire.

    ERICKSON: Our present insanity

    Historian Gertrude Himmelfarb once wrote, “What was once stigmatized as deviant behavior is now tolerated and even sanctioned; what was once regarded as abnormal has been normalized ... As deviancy is normalized, so what was once normal becomes deviant. The kind of family that has been regarded...


    ERICKSON: Easy choices made tough

    My wife and I howled with laughter reading The Telegraph the other day. It was gallows humor laughter. After all the work to consolidate Macon and Bibb County, we have come to these choices and made easy ones tough.


    ERICKSON: I back Jack

    I am sure David Perdue is a good and decent person. I have friends who keep telling me he is a good Christian man. I accept that. My problem with David Perdue has nothing to do with his faith or goodness as a person. It has to do with where he stands.


    ERICKSON: Mt. de Sales firing about marriage, not sexual orientation

    The Sisters of Mercy founded the Academy of the Sacred Heart Jesus in 1871. Five years later, the school changed its name to Mount de Sales Academy. In the 20 years I have lived in Macon, I have met more than one parent who railed on the racism of Macon’s private schools while still sending...
