Texas Power Failure: Winter Storm Uri (and Minnesota)

A winter storm was moving across North America a couple weeks back. By February 15, when The Texas Tribune posted Miguel Gutierrez Jr.'s photo of Austin's Interstate 35 near Stassney Lane, we were dealing with sub-zero (Fahrenheit) temperatures and serious windchill. And, for the most part, dealing successfully. I live in central Minnesota. The mid-February storm included temperatures that were unusually cold, compared to the last 50 years.

Christ, the big surprise on the Super Bowl (Spanish) Cristo en el Super Bowl.

        Sin esperarlo y para sorpresa de muchos, la centralidad de la fe en Cristo del pueblo americano logró llegar hasta el horario prime de la emisión más vista en el mundo: el Super Bowl. La compañía de coches Jeep puso al aire un anuncio sobre el deseo de unidad en su país y escogió mostrar un elemento en el corazón de Estados Unidos, que muestra su naturaleza y raíces. El hecho ha sido condenado por sectores de la izquierda laicista de ese país, ya que muestra el punto medio que puede unir a esa nación: Cristo. Y para los que tratamos de compartir el amor de Jesús y la fe cristiana, fue una gran lección de cómo hacer llegar su mensaje a   todas las personas, a pesar de las paredes que insisten en mantenerlo fuera del mundo.    Por: Jeep Co.
