Barbers Would Make Great Ministers

Barbers Would Make Great Ministers Why do we feel so excited to go to our barber or stylist? We love to look good and be pampered, but I think it’s something more. Barbershops are a lot like churches.  A place filled with people from different backgrounds and vocations coming together looking for the same thing. The hope of leaving better than they came.  I think newly styled hair is only one reason people leave feeling better. If the barbershop is like a church, then barbers are like ministers. A good...

Launch Before You Launch

More than 300 years ago, a smart scientist named Isaac Newton came up with three basic laws that describe the way things move. One of these laws says that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. This is the most important idea behind how rockets work. When we launch things into space, we do so by putting them on rockets with enough fuel — called propellant — to boost them above most of Earth’s atmosphere. The propellants give the rocket enough energy to boost away from Earth’s...
