Worn out?

Worn out from holiday busy-ness? Take a page from the Japanese playbook. Nap on the job! If a little “inemuri” is out of the question for you, consider the Italian or Spanish takes on rest. Let yourself rest. Don’t let the season drain you.

Mind full of stats

Which MLB player weighing 160-175 has stolen the most bases on days with a dew point average above 55? Who’s got the most RBIs in the middle three innings of an away game? Statisticians know. While you enjoy the World Series, remember, a mind full of Christ is of more lasting value than a mind... Continue Reading →

We, like these trees

We, like these trees, are more interconnected than we sometimes realize. As Christians, we desire to influence everyone in our network (which is bigger than we may ever know) with all that is true and life-giving. Which is only possible as we draw sustenance from the primary root—God!

What would you launch?

Billionaire Elon Musk launched his Tesla roadster into space, embedded in a rocket, in February. Just for fun, we asked several Entrust staff members what they’d like to shoot into space.

Happy Pi Day!

Happy Pi Day!
