ADDING/SCATTERING

A large portion of my growing up days was in a house attached to a Lighthouse.  It made for interesting times.  Perhaps the most exciting of times, when a hurricane would “invade” the Island! To describe all of the times would be unnecessary, because there was much that was alike, but not always.  The winds,Continue reading “ADDING/SCATTERING”

GOD’S INTERVENTION

In these days when the corona-virus is raking our country and the world, there is a light here and there that becomes a testimony to the GRACE of GOD!  It is not the many that are healed, as much as the attitude toward their experience.  Some confidently faced death with the assurance of their salvation. Continue reading “GOD’S INTERVENTION”

SAUL … IN AGREEMENT

Various churches, denominations, have a structured organization that consists of Pastors, Elders, Deacons, and an assortment of titles that lend itself to their particular function. Some pastors have no trouble adjusting to these structures; while for others there is the necessity of sticking as close as possible to words utilized in the Scriptures or theirContinue reading “DEACONS”

BARNABAS

A situation develops of a disagreement in opinion, and sometimes it gets a little explosive. People who are intent that it is of significance; others are ready to say “let it go”. Then, there are those who feel that in time it will show itself to be either good or bad, just let it sitContinue reading “BARNABAS”

ANOTHER BASKET CASE

Remember that we spoke of Moses in a basket; well now we have an adult and a basket. Paul the Apostle had been saved while preparing to destroy the church that was multiplying in Damascus, and he had letters certifying that he was on a legal assignment. Jesus appeared to him in the form ofContinue reading “ANOTHER BASKET CASE”
