In the 2009’s Tyson, a documentary about the life of former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. Tyson is remembered for being one of the most feared boxers of all time, not just for his knockout punch—he knocked out 44 of his 50 losing opponents—but also for his anger, his unpredictability, and the impression that he was a powerful man wildly out of control. In 1992, he was convicted of raping Desiree Washington, for which he spent three years prison. In the movie he admits abusing women. In a fight against Evander Holyfield he bit off part of Holyfield’s ear. In the film Tyson admits that he has at times been on the brink of insanity.

The director of the documentary, 64-year-old James Toback, confesses to having something in common with Holyfield. He too has walked the edge. He almost died once from an LSD trip that lasted eight days. Toback says, “[Tyson] turns out to be as complicated and crazy as I am.”


My Story, Our Story

The early church had a stormy relationship with the wicked and powerful Roman government.  Cycles of severe persecution interrupted by tenuous peace recurred at the whim of the emperor.  Romans officials, ignorant of the actual teachings and practices of true Christians, often acted out of bigotry, fear, superstition, or misinformation.  The royal court assumed that the growing Christian church operated along the same lines as their own greedy religions. The emperor, coveting the wealth these Christians must surely possess, summoned their head bishop to the royal court and ordered him to produce “the treasures of the church.”

Why Not Your Sister

A mother asked her son why he didn’t take his little sister along as he left to go fishing, and he said, “Because the last time I took her I didn’t catch a thing.”   Mother said, “I’m sure she’ll be quite if you explain to her.”   “Oh, it wasn’t the noise,” the boy replied, “She ate the bait.”
