Mangers and Crosses

Protestants take great pride in their symbolic piety… or lack thereof. In recent years we’ve abandoned the table… removed the cross and hymnals and bibles and stain-glassed windows… “It’s not about the symbols” we’ve said, “It’s the truths they represent!  As followers of Christ,” we’ve continued, “we live the truths of the symbols!” (…I’m not […]

Our Song

Sunday November 26th we came together and wrote a song …as a church family… …in about 15 minutes☻! …all of us together… …and then recorded in about 5 hours… It probably won’t top the charts but it’s ours… My apologies to those whose lines aren’t here… they were recorded but got lost on the editing […]

There’s just no pleasin’ some folks

I once had someone get angry at me because I hadn’t come to visit them when they were sick. “I thought I could depend on you!” they complained. I wasn’t sure how to respond since they were still clearly suffering – the problem was they hadn’t told me until that moment that they were in […]

Prayer

Why should God answer that prayer? I’m not trying to be facetious.  There is no hidden agenda in the question.  It’s not one of those questions that has another one embedded within.  It’s simple: That prayer request that you offered up to God this morning… why should He answer?  Why are you asking Him to […]
