A Day of Infamy

This is an blog which was originally sent out on Aug 9 2009. As today is Pearl Harbor day. I thought it would be appropriate to send it again as a reminder, and confirmation.
A while back Terri and I went to Japan to visit our daughter and son-in-law while he was stationed there in [...]

One New Man From Two‏

The scripture says that it is the gentile church that will provoke the Hebrew decedents of Jesus (Yeshua) to jealously and cause them to cry out for their Messiah (Rom 11:11). We have reason to hope that we are entering a period of time when this will occur. There are a number of reasons [...]

Halloween Goose‏

Jan Hus was called “The Goose of Bohemia” because Hus means goose in the Czech language. Jan, John in English, became a follower of John Wycliffe who had taught liberty of conscience and the priesthood of all believers that followed the elevation of Scripture over the teachings of men. Wycliffe is most remembered now for [...]

A Season For Jephthahs‏

I recently related the story about being in an African nation where it is said that sacrifice of infant daughters is still practiced. In the church where we were visiting they were singing about Jephthah and his daughter. They were saying that Jephthah killed his daughter. I found this very disturbing and was able to [...]

Shine Your Light‏

Once, while sitting in a dark building made of volcanic rubble used as a church in central Africa, my team and I were watching the dance of some young girls.

The Worth Of One Life‏

Alex Haley the famous author of the series Roots once said, “When an old person dies it’s like a library burning [down].” In our modern age of rapidly advancing technology it’s easy for some to count the older folks out, but knowledge is not the same as wisdom, which usually comes through experience. It seems [...]

On September 17, 1787 our US Constitution was ratified in Philadelphia. It begins with the words, “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our [...]

Oedipus Rex – Rachel Weeping‏

Do you remember the Greek Tragedy Oedipus Rex? As an unwanted infant, Oedipus was abandoned to die without the help an infant needs to survive, especially in the first critical hours of life. Most people realize that the current President believes in a similar form of infanticide by legally mandated neglect for certain infants born, [...]

Labor Day

Sept 4, 2009
As we approach the Labor Day weekend I have given some thought to the celebration of labor. Our holiday is a yearly tribute to the workers and their contributions to the strength, abundance, and well-being of our nation. What is called the protestant work ethic, from the values of Protestantism and specifically the [...]

Sound Investing

Out of the blue the other day thoughts began to flood my mind about investments. The ads I’d been inundated with from TV and electronic media began to overwhelm my thoughts. Gold, silver, stocks, bonds, inflationary hedges, deflationary hedges. It happened so quickly I didn’t even have time to register the meaning of the thoughts [...]
