While growing up in the 70’s there was still a time when polka music could still be heard on the radio. Every Sunday morning my mother would turn on the radio and listen to polka music as we were getting ready for church. Later on in life I pastored a small country church where theContinue reading “I Was Looking Back to See . . .”

Post Endgame Credit Scene . . .
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Endgame revolves around a villain with good intent named Thanos. He wants to end suffering by snapping his fingers with infinity stones and just make half the people he deems as unnecessary or a hinderance to world survival disappear. So just as the MCU has post credit scenes, I offerContinue reading “Post Endgame Credit Scene . . .”
Endgame . . .
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Endgame revolves around a villain with good intent named Thanos. He wants to end suffering by snapping his fingers with infinity stones and just make half the people he deems as unnecessary or a hinderance to world survival disappear. I just recently had a conversation with a graduate philosophy major. Continue reading “Endgame . . .”
Lost . . .
In the early 2000’s there was a fictional TV show Lost. It started out about a rag tag group of survivors on a mysterious island who had to learn to get along in order to survive. There was a doctor by the name of Jack Shepherd who uttered the famous line, “Either we will learnContinue reading “Lost . . .”
Not Ignoring the Natural . . .
I live in an area where we tend to get less sunlight than the average population, especially in the winter. So it is not too unusual to hear of others or experience myself, some seasonal affective disorder, which affects our sleep and eating patterns. In the winter, our skies our quite often dark and grey,Continue reading “Not Ignoring the Natural . . .”
Heart to Heart . . .
One of the ways that manipulators like to prey on Christians is to get them to not trust what they hear from the Holy Spirit because we can be deceived. So without the special giftings of certain people, one can not properly move forward with God. They love to quote the verse: Jeremiah 17:9 ESVContinue reading “Heart to Heart . . .”
Some More Three Dog Night Please . . .
Once again, I will start out with the disclaimer that while I enjoy the sound of the music group Three Dog Night, their lifestyle is not necessarily one to be emulated by Christians, however the issues they raised in the early 70’s through their music still are issues we face today in America. And (sigh)Continue reading “Some More Three Dog Night Please . . .”
To Tell the Truth . . .
There was an American TV show that began in 1956 and has continued to run in one form or another since 1956 called To Tell the Truth. There were three panelists. All of them trying to convince the celebrity guests of which one of them was the real person described. At the end of eachContinue reading “To Tell the Truth . . .”
One is the Loneliest Number . . .
Once again, another song from the old 60’s-70’s rock band Three Dog Night comes to mind. (Again, my usual disclaimer that their lifestyle is not one to be emulated as a Christian). But they do have the song One is the Loneliest Number. The lyrics read “No is the saddest experience you’ll ever know. Yes,Continue reading “One is the Loneliest Number . . .”
Sunrise . . . Sunset . . .
Those famous words of song are from the musical, Fiddler on the Roof. It is sung as parents who look over their lives to wonder where all the time went as the children have quickly grown up. Years pass by when it seems as a blink of the eyes. Likewise, what we read in scriptureContinue reading “Sunrise . . . Sunset . . .”
