BEEN TO A FUNERAL RECENTLY?

As a pastor over these many years, the number of funerals conducted has been extensive, and each one has some type of uniqueness to it.  I remember many of them, and recall what people wanted or did not want included.  The hardest was probably those of children; that does not surprise me, because I noticeContinue reading “BEEN TO A FUNERAL RECENTLY?”

THE WINGS OF A DOVE

I wrote recently about the many birds that come into our back yard.  They are all beautiful to watch and though we do not feed them, they must know how much they are appreciated by their daily return. A number of them are doves; whenever I take time to sit and watch them I noticeContinue reading “THE WINGS OF A DOVE”

RE-BIBLE

The story is told of the villager, who returning to his own village did so with excitement.  He told of his visit to the other village and proceeded to talk about what was taking place spiritually.  Excitedly he said: “They are having a Re-Bible! In effect, he was right.  When the fires of revival began,Continue reading “RE-BIBLE”

OLD FASHIONED, PURITANICAL

In 1986 we began the Commitment ministry. Together, Patsy and I had prayed and sought the Lord concerning our future. Her health and the weather had determined where we located…Arizona.

TAUGHT.HEARD.UNDERSTOOD

I recall how, on occasion I would look at it, especially the pictures,Continue reading “TAUGHT.HEARD.UNDERSTOOD”

SLAVES TO COMPUTERIZATION

I recall so well in my teen years, in our carpentry shop, how one of our jobs required extensive work involving the preparation of a room to hold a computer. What a job! Naturally, the computer in those days required almost an entire room being prepped for this installation. Gradually, we have mastered the computersContinue reading “SLAVES TO COMPUTERIZATION”

BUT THESE ARE WRITTEN

“And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen.” John 21:25 I cannot say for certain, but in all probability, I was recommended to read the Gospel of John asContinue reading “BUT THESE ARE WRITTEN”

SCRIPTURES

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness…” 2 Timothy 3:16 I have no problem concerning the Inspiration of the Scriptures. The Bible has survived every effort to degrade and destroy its veracity, and in confidence I see it surmounting the attacks lodged against it. While it withstandsContinue reading “SCRIPTURES”
