Totality…

...blocking the Sun.

We’re using a singular term to describe the eclipse of the Sun today. The word is totality. It’s not really meant to be a label for the event, although, it has become that. It’s pretty exciting for many. Some are even expecting a spiritual experience. Others are saying it’s a sign that God is doing […]

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 […]

Music for the Soul.

How's yours?

Today is the Alumni Gathering and Grand Finale Festival of the great Star Lake Musicamp @ 7 PM. We may be going. It’s a grand affair and worthy of attention. I’m not sure if they will be streaming or not. It would be worth your time to find out and take advantage of it. The […]

Presence of God

...10 reasons He's here.

The omnipresent God is with us. Here’s how you know: We haven’t self-destructed in spite of wars ecology self-centeredness political polarization The sun came up this morning There’s hope in the day We are free to love each other We are free to forgive His Spirit gives us peace in the midst of confusion His […]

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 […]

Forecasting…

...how accurate?

Telling the future has been tempting since the beginning of time. There are signs of the seasons that can be reliable. Farmers and seafarers have used these signs to good effect. Did you listen to the weather report today? Looked it up on your phone? I suppose they’re getting more accurate as we go along […]

Fake News

...not news at all.

Such discourse about “fake news” is mostly annoying. Inaccurate news – It happens. Facts are wrong, but not intentionally and should be followed by an appropriate correction. Bad news – First we think of the information as being tough, but bad news could also mean poorly reported. Worthless news – This would be information we […]

Great Days Ahead…

...remain on course.

We love the “Good Old Days” and exclaim that our best days are yet ahead. It’s not true in all things, but it is true in the Kingdom of God. Be led by the Spirit of God. Hear His voice and act upon it. Trust Him with all your heart and know that He will […]

Worship always…

...even now.

Like your witness, your worship, always shows. Extending grace to an undeserved person? That’s worship. Spending all your money at the casino? That’s worship of another kind. Helping marginalized people? That’s worship. Interested in pornography? That’s another type of worship too. “a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship […]
