New Postings will resume shortly

1 Timothy 5:8 ESV – 8 But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. I just wanted to give a quick update that though my personal life has been extremely busy as of late, my thoughtsContinue reading “New Postings will resume shortly”

Not Worshiping Worship . . .

Our American culture is very much a consumer driven entertainment-based culture.  That has transferred in some ways to the concert style church. The very picture included was the first image I came up with in a google search for the word “worship;” A concert spectator style worship. I realize that all church services must beContinue reading “Not Worshiping Worship . . .”

Ignoring the Obvious

I am including two posts and two very different accounts of modern-day persecution.  BOTH are horrific.  I touched on this once before: Tigray survivors share horrors of mass killings as Sunday school kids are among thousands dead and ‘Practically this has been a genocide’ Doctors say rape is being used as a weapon ofContinue reading “Ignoring the Obvious”

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 . . .”

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 . . .”

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 . . .”

Whose Line is it Anyways?

There was a British/American TV show about improvisational comedy. I admit I never saw the show.  But it was based upon the concept of seeing where a suggestion would take the guests. I have taken some time to ponder over what I had written in my last post.  Sometimes as I write these blogs, IContinue reading “Whose Line is it Anyways?”

I Had the Best Day . . .

There is a song by Taylor Swift that has had a deep impact on my personally.  In the song The Best Day, we find a young woman looking back at her life with her mother, through its ups and downs.  There is a line that reads “I know you were on my side even whenContinue reading “I Had the Best Day . . .”
