That Old Shovel Still Works

After an especially wet winter and anticipating a strong summer monsoon season, I decided a new “creek bed” around our house would add a layer of protection against water intrusion. It is almost complete and looks great. Even better, it works.

Paul is Speaking to Us

In the first words of 1 Timothy, Paul begins by returning to a familiar theme, deception in the church. In this case, he is writing as a mentor to his young friend, Timothy.

Warnings from Paul Against Being Deceived

In Paul’s second letter to the Thessalonians, we find instruction for our lives and time today.

The wisdom has always been for all time, but in today’s time it seems especially applicable.

What Am I?

I often think of where I’ve come from and who I’ve become, but rarely about what I am. Knowing what we are defines us to ourselves more than to others, and adds a sense of certainty to life.

What enabled Saul, later to be Paul , to step into his new role and purpose so quickly and so powerfully?

How Should A Believer Respond to Coronavirus?

Our world is in a mess right now. People are sick, many are dying, economies are broken, unemployment is high, fear and anxiety are on a rampage. Not sure about that last? Go to the store and try to find basic goods. Fear and anxiety are most definitely on the move.
