Steven Spielberg's newest film, "Ready Player One," misses the mark and leaves much to be desired.
As people of God, in our resting and in our working, in our solitude and in our communion, in our being and in our doing, we are a river of life. Our acts of justice and righteousness are water in a dry and thirsty land.
