  • The Broken Vows - "Tomorrow" Comes

    20 February 2011

    Awaking from a fitful sleep, she sat on the side of the bed staring into space, getting her bearings, slowly realizing that this was not her bed, not her room, not her home. For a minute or two she fought a feeling of panic. The ghosts of the past began...

  • My Prayer for America

    04 July 2010

    God Bless America! Long may she live! May she have the sense to repent, and the grace to forgive! May her favor and honor continually increase, but may her stubbornness, willfulness and rebellion now cease! May she prosper and receive His health, deep...

  • Accountability, a Two-way Street, not a Dead-end road

    06 December 2010

    Truly, I do believe that we must all adhere to ONE standard, and that standard is the divinely inspired Word of the Living God, given and interpreted by His Spirit! And that, yes, we are accountable to that truth, as well as to each other! A t least,...

  • The Real Miracle of Chanukah

    17 December 2011

    Chanukah is a miracle, no matter what, you see; the oil that burned for eight whole days, or astounding victory. Again, the tiny Israel defeats the bullying hoards! Again, they won, they stood their ground, they called upon their Lord! Over and over again...

  • An Open Letter to Other Cultures

    15 December 2010

    (My neighbors, the Original Americans, the current occupants of the White House, Etc. …) Greetings in the Name of My Lord, (or Our Lord, as the case may be.), At this time of year when most are focused on lofty ideals like "world peace", or meeting the...

  • A Treatise on the Irony of Human Reasoning

    10 December 2010

    As I meditate on God's goodness this morning, and on the Holidays before us I have become aware of an irony that I want to address. And that irony would be the tendency of mankind to get overly religious, sentimental or just plain habitual about everything...

  • Repentance vs. Self-Loathing

    07 December 2010

    Self-loathing is not repentance, and rarely, if ever leads to it! It is a fleshly substitute rooted in pride. There is a sorrow that leads to repentance, but that is usually the loving conviction of the Spirit of God! Whereas, humility says, “of course...

  • Getting Righteously To The Point!

    05 January 2011

    In reading this mornings text, (Matthew chapter 9) which included a discourse with some Scribes, some Pharisees, and some disciples of a colleague, Jesus touches on three different points of the Mosaic Law while answering questions which were put to Him...

  • Listless in Salisbury......

    07 January 2011

    (A New Year's Revolution) Today is Friday! A whole week of the New Year gone! I haven't even made resolutions yet! Well, that really isn't entirely so. I have not spelled them out, or declared them aloud, but they are there. Always, there, those ever...

  • The Path To (and the Purpose of) Recognizing the Presence of God

    13 January 2011

    As I have developed the practice of spending time in God's presence there has been a progression, which I now see. Perhaps you know the saying, “hindsight is always 20/20”? Meaning of course that it is always easier to "see" where you've just been, than...

  • From Heaper to Keeper, A Redemption Story

    08 January 2011

    In my daily prayer journal this morning I found this personal “snap-shot” of reconciliation. It is from my entry on this date last year, as I expressed gratefulness for the healing I have received emotionally, spiritually and socially, I wrote; “This...

  • Today is the Day - Because - Things Have Changed

    03 January 2011

    Today is the Day – because - Things Have Changed Yesterday began a New Year, in which I have expressed that sense of joyful expectation and eager anticipation. I can feel the pull in the positive direction, the upward current of God's blessing on my life....

  • Waltzing the Gospel: Learned Through a Darkened Glass....

    19 July 2011

    Three steps forward, four steps back, if someone falls down, turn and attack! If you work hard enough you may even succeed, that is, if not sidelined by pride, lust or greed! Just pay in your dues, and it is said, "in due season", you might actually reap,...

  • When It Comes To Freedom, Where Do We Really Stand?

    09 March 2011

    There is a war of unprecedented proportions that has raged down through the ages, with more casualties than all the physical wars put together. It is a "Civil War" within the church, and it is fought much like the "cold wars", with words, politics and...

  • On the Eve of New Year's Eve

    31 December 2010

    A new year stretches ahead, blank and inviting like new snow or a new pad of white writing paper; waiting to be imprinted by some form of life! How did we fill the last one? Was there more joy than pain? More satisfaction than regret? What can we look...

  • An Honest Prayer:

    10 March 2011

    {Note: Today I felt like taking a break from "form" pounding and wine-skin warfare to just breath in the aroma of God. I will therefore continue my "series" tomorrow, or as led. Preaching the Word is such hard work, with such heavy implications, especially...

  • Christmas Musings for 2010

    25 December 2010

    I sit in the stillness that is Christmas morning at my house. It is 5:30 in the morning, and everyone has left, an hour or so ago, to go over to the homeless shelter to cook breakfast. A tradition we began some years ago to highlight the true meaning...

  • The Hero- Lover of My Soul

    13 January 2011

    Quiet the uproar in my head, the storm within my heart; draw me away from the tumultuous war, to a quiet place apart. Focus my eyes until all that I see, is the pure and peaceful heart of Thee. For all my troubles, You've bid me roll, on You, hero-lover...

  • A Simple Prayer for Today

    20 January 2011

    Dearest Father, Great Lord of all, Who always hears me when I call! Open my eyes, my heart, my ears, I want to see, and know and hear Your every Word, and thought and deed, I'm sure that You know all my need! So I simply ask for more of You, please be...

  • A Modern Day Psalm

    22 January 2011

    (fell down again ! look up to him!) Father God, This morning, with Your mercies all new, my tired soul comes again to You, exhausted, suffering, from despair, because, again, I forgot You're there, worried, tormented and harassed, though I thought on...

  • To What or Whom Am I Devoted?

    18 January 2011

    And Just How Devoted Am I? In Honor of Dr. Martin Luther King. I begin this treatise with some quotes that strike me as profoundly true: “The greatest competitor of devotion to Jesus Christ is service for Him. We are not to be sent to battle for God,...

  • The Faithful Way

    14 January 2011

    I want to pray for the easier way, but when my heart is still, I know that I must always pray for You to have Your will! For that is where Your Joy is found, from whence I draw my strength, So whether we go long or short, I'll be fit to go the length!...

  • The Unforced Rhythms of Grace

    26 January 2011

    “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion?...” This beginning dissertation of Jesus, from the familiar teaching in Matthew chapter 11, (taken from the Message translation) sounds like an infomercial in the making! He is teaching the people how...

  • Vision - Revision

    22 January 2011

    I am beginning to realize that a lot of things that seem “new” in my life, that have appeared on my horizon recently, are actually the places where I was headed long ago, but then somehow got “side-tracked”. I am thinking that they possibly represent...

  • Pride Goes Before ... An Election?

    15 January 2011

    (Yet Another Call to Repentance - Especially For Those Who Consider Themselves To Be God's Children) In reading this morning's passage in Isaiah, I was again struck by the realization, that the object of God's “judgment” which the “religious right” loves...
