The Bible…

...is the Word of God.

When you get to know me, you’ll know I am convinced that the Bible is the Word of God. Do you want to know what God says or thinks about a subject? It’s in the Bible? Do you have a question about your life that no one seems to be able to help you with? […]

The Steps of a Righteous Person…

...are ordered by the Lord.

The quote from the Scriptures goes exactly this way: Psalms 37 23 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. 24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.” They are a great assurance of the presence of God in […]

Tarzan Christianity…

...as conveyed by Duffy Robbins

Carolyn and I made it to Ocean Grove today for worship. Dr. Duffy Robbins from Eastern University, St. Davids, PA gave the message about Tarzan Christianity. In his interesting style he communicated John 15:1-11. It’s about vines and branches, hence the Tarzan reference. I will not attempt to restate his message here. Perhaps the Ocean […]

Worship the Lord…

...in the beauty of holiness.

Psalm 29:2 (NIV2011) 2  Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness. This is a great idea for today and every day. Will our lives be worship to the Lord? We can when it is in the beauty of holiness. It won’t be found in […]

Binging…

...not always bad.

Probably, the first I ever heard of binging was binge drinking. This is, of course not a good plan if the drinking is alcohol. It’s indicative of alcoholism and a need for real help. Now we hear of binge watching television with the advent of whole seasons of shows available at a time. I am […]

Keeping It Straight

Apps that work for me.

I enjoy things digital and believe some of the hype that some of these things actually help me accomplish other things while cutting down on the time it takes and the anxiety of getting it all done. Now I need an app to cut back on run-on sentences. I know they exist. Evernote My favorite […]

Great Ideas…

Where do they come from?

We met with a big thinker this week. I like to be in the company of big thinkers. Their perspective can be so unique and helpful to see the forest from the trees. As we talked, you could almost see the wheels of his imaginative mind going to work, considering the many different possibilities and […]

Yes, we can…

...the way forward.

It’s worth the commitment. Let’s put our heads together and make it work. This will improve our position. Don’t give up. These are the files […]
