Why do we not see more praying in public? I don’t mean when we are in the house of the Lord or in the presence of faithful family and friends. I see families out for dinner and lunch all the time and I never see them praying. This is something that crossed my mind when my family and I were out at Cracker Barrel a few days ago. I am… Read More »Praying In Public Unashamedly | Public Prayer
Hello Brethren! The host I use to keep this site going (FlockHosting) has informed me that next Friday, March 17th, the server my site is hosted on will be migrating to new hardware. There may be about 30 minutes of downtime but fear not, we shall return! Or I shall…not sure why I say ‘we’ all the time. What this means is new hardware that should provide snappier load times.… Read More »Upcoming Server Maintenance
This is post 7 of 7 in the series “Men to Know” For the most part when I look at who I want to highlight in the Bible I look for uncommon men who provide an uncommon lesson that just makes sense when it clicks. Sometimes, like today I look at the life of a well known man from the Bible. In fact, how about someone who wrote Bible? How… Read More »Men to Know: John Mark
This is post 6 of 7 in the series “Men to Know” We are taking a look at another judge this time (last time was Barak and Deborah). This time we will have a look at Jephthah and his life as he was judge over Israel for six years. The history of Jephthah begins in Judges 10:6 and goes all the way to Judges 12:7 where he dies and is… Read More »Men to Know: Jephthah – A Tragic Vow
Things seem to have gone smoothly. I am monitoring the site, checking for errors and doing small tweaks here and there. So do you like our new look? It’s minimal, and the header is front and center. What we are, the inspiration for this work for God is on show. Going minimal isn’t easy, but it is beautiful. I hope you like it. Our road to reconciliation with God is… Read More »Maintenance Completed: Check Us Out!
Hello friends! We will be going down for maintenance today, hopefully only today. It’s time for a change of clothes and some increased speeds around here. We hope you like what we are doing. It’s all for God!
2016 will go down in the annals of history… However, we write it. It does not have to be the worst year ever, and it may not be the best year the world has seen. Those terms are entirely relative and often personal. A friend may have had a terrible year in some aspects while having great things happen in other areas of life. We, us fragile humans are concerned with blips in our time here on earth and often they are the things that happened yesterday or a week ago or a month. How we review our year determines how we feel about the bounty we have reaped. It shows us what we consider abundant and what is meager. Those things ultimately set the tone for how we expect our year to go. Genuinely consider that sunny disposition and ask if that is a facade for society or will you decide that your year is a mess the 1st day of January when someone makes your coffee wrong?
We often talk about ‘Keeping Christ in Christmas’ or ‘Putting Christ Back in Christmas’ or another catchy derivative of that. It’s easy to see why we use it. Every year like a bunch of idiots we run to stores looking for deals on items. It was after Thanksgiving and now it’s 6:00PM on Thanksgiving Day instead. So, do we get Little Timmy that toy and skip family time or are we good stewards and let God handle the availability of a gift and spend time with our family that is precious and finite. Those gifts will be there another day folks. Sure, maybe not at that price but they will be there. Saving $30 or family time, think about that.
So we made it! All moved into our new digs on the internet. We will have a faster load time as well thanks to our new host Flock Hosting. I cannot express how smoothly this went and how communicative that Chuck is. My biggest complaints with the previous host were load times on a site that really shouldn’t be experiencing it. We are small and that is okay. At the… Read More »All Moved In
Hello! We will be performing maintenance on the site soon. We will be migrating servers and moving to an entirely different hosting company. That said I want to highlight Flock Hosting, the company we are moving to because our decision is two-fold. One it is cost driven but the important reason is that it is a faith-based hosting company. They offer a lot for so little in costs. This allows… Read More »Site Migration and Updates
