I've always found Philip Yancey's writing interesting.
Of course, the concept can apply to political entities as well as religious ones. I have wondered over the years whether the general level of civic cohesion in this country may be partly related to the same phenomenon. My perception is that many communities, and the country itself, are somewhat less cohesive than in times past. Of course I cannot claim I'm old enough to be sure whether I'm right. Can you imagine any possibility that we could create and sustain the large degree of public unity of purpose that was (apparently) evident during WW II?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
