Word For The Day – Still Stand’n

Today my reading in the Word was Ephesians chapter 6. But for I started reading that chapter I was lead there by my musing about one of my favorite drawings by my son, Christopher, who creates art under the name "muse". The drawing is entitled, Still Stand'n. The title reminded me of some bible [...]

Thoughts on a Sunday Afternoon – A Different Story of 300

How often do you face circumstances where you just don't seem to have enough of what it takes to succeed. There may be a greater goal in play? This morning my reading in the Word brought me to Judges chapter 7, the familiar Sunday school story of Gideon and his meager 300. Many significant things [...]

James and John’s “Mr. Rogers'”* Moment?

Today my reading took me from Luke 9:12 to Luke 10:38, finishing with Jesus telling the story of the good Samaritan. We have probably all heard this parable from the perspective of the lawyer who was grilling Jesus about the finer points of, "What must I do to inherit eternal life?". His aggressive response to Jesus was [...]

His Poetic Call To Return…

Amos 3 - 5 4:8,9,10 and 11 "Yet you have not returned to Me....."     5:4 "Seek Me that you may live..." In chapter four for four consecutive verses in a sad, poetic rhythm our Father through Amos repeats a tragic refrain. He laments to them that in their times of discipline, of reaping what they [...]
