  • As a scientist, Dr. Ken Sulak is trained to make observations. 

    He makes his living studying the ways of the natural world, with an emphasis, in recent years, on the lives of sturgeon swimming the lengths of the Suwannee River.

    "In the course of being on the river, you run into a lot of people, a lot of old timers," Sulak said from his office at the U.S. Geological Survey last week.

    No matter how many times I turn my smartphone or tablet, the screen adjusts so that I’m looking at it right-side-up. I was astounded to learn that this was not magic, but the work of a gyroscope that senses every motion the phone or iPad makes.

    In Matthew 18, Jesus urges us to keep our relationships right-side up. The problem is that unlike smartphones and iPads, we don't have a built-in gyroscope to make it automatic and easy − not one that was scientifically created.
