  • Work, for the night is coming?

    29 July 2012

    For some it is already here. Another friend of ours has slipped from this realm of time into eternity, seemingly overnight. Actually, in our experience it was within in a few hours! We did know that he had been fighting cancer for the last month or so...

  • The Proper Timing and Tone of Teshuvah

    13 June 2012

    Taken from Parasha 37: Shlach L'Kha (Send on your behalf) Found in Numbers 13:1-15:41 (But I got stuck in 14:20-45 so far...) Plainly put, the proper timing of Teshuvah is when the Ruach ha Kodesh points out our sin, and the proper tone is one of humble...

  • Impressions from Today's Entry of "My Utmost for His Highest"

    08 August 2012

    Today the devotional was taken from Luke 1:35, wherein the angel announced the coming of Messiah to the one who would bear Him saying, "This holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of G-d." Brother Chambers, as always, has some...

  • In Honor of the Day

    18 June 2012

    Father's Day 2012 If all father's were like my Father G-d, the world would not be so cold, so dark and so odd, for there would be no hearts broken, abandoned and torn, no children forsaken, in terror, forlorn. My Father's all power, all wisdom, all love....

  • Walking the "Straight" and Narrow?

    30 May 2012

    Lately I find that I have been much in thought about this seemingly sudden attention to the homosexual issue. My spirit is stirred within me. I hear many people saying things like, "why is this such a big deal all of a sudden?" I think I heard grown-ups...

  • Responsibility - the Road to Adventure?

    11 May 2012

    "Thus says Adonai, Yet again it will be heard in this place, of which you say, it is a waste, without man and without beast, that in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem are desolate, without man and without inhabitant and without beast,...

  • Funny. But WRONG!"

    29 August 2012

    This phrase, coined by Steve Martin, the once reigning king of "Funny but Wrong", is a phrase that unfortunately, all too often, reflects the level of humor at the Duncan home. Those who are well acquainted with us know that this is "sad but true". However,...

  • The Race of Life - Are We Runners or Spectators?

    09 July 2012

    Happy American Independence day! The 4th of July. As we celebrate to this holiday of Independence as a G-d fearing nation, honoring those who gave "the last full measure" for our freedom, there are some things we should ponder individually. What are we...

  • The Importance of Accurately Discerning Our Spiritual Roots

    13 August 2012

    The question for most of us is not whether we are part of something bigger. I think the question that is becoming increasingly insistent is closer to, “What is it, exactly, that we are part of? I agree with my Rabbi, who says that it does not matter which...

  • Method in the Seeming Madness

    29 June 2012

    (A meditation on Matthew 5:30) As marble maimed to make fine art, please maim this flesh to make thine heart! By gentle hand or violent skill, though You must slay me, I love you still. I know You have an end in mind, Your perfect Character, in me, to...

    ...Who Know that We Are Born This Way... Part Two: This is the month of Av on the Jewish calendar, and this Shabbot marks the date of many calamities in the Jewish History, the most notable being the burning of the Temple. Therefore there is great mourning...

    21 August 2012

    (Who Know We Were "Born this way", And Are NOT Proud of It!) Part Three In the passage that has become known as "The Beatitudes", Yeshua was preaching to the every day, working class, man and woman. His message was directed to those who laid claim to...

  • Well, Well......

    23 December 2012

    This morning I find myself trying to struggle through a mine-field of feelings to get to Truth! I want to be a conduit that carries clean water that flows through the deepest wells of "living water", but, honestly, I feel more like a run-off for the local...

  • Disciples or Deserters?

    02 July 2012

    To answer this question I want to tell you a story. Once there was a highly respected teacher. Everyone wanted his attention, everyone wanted on to be on the waiting list to be under his instruction. He had the reputation of being the best tutor in the...

  • A Sabbath Meditation~

    29 September 2012

    Shabbot Shalom. The poetic syntax of those words alone begins the flow of peace, as we choose to meditate on the true meaning and intention of these words, as we opt to take this opportunity to wind down our week and prepare to honor our G-d. I sit in...

  • Who Am I, Really?

    26 August 2012

    The question this morning, from the Spirit of the Lord, was simply, "Who am I when I am finally able to relax, or 'let down my guard'?". It could be asked another way, "Who am I - when I do not feel compelled to restrain myself; or to act differently,...

  • Discerning the Incredible Timing of an All-Knowing G-d

    06 August 2012

    (From Ecclesiastes, Chapter Three) "There is an appointed time (mo'edim) for every thing. And there is a set time (mo'edim) for every purpose and event under heaven ... (in heaven there is NO time at all) - A time to give birth and a time to die; A time...

  • Bitterness Versus Goodness

    09 October 2012

    (the essence of rejection)vs(spiritual fruit) This morning as I was getting awake and my brain began to talk to me about a project I am working on (redoing our diet to improve our overall health and well-being) I had one of those - "We interrupt this...

  • Checking In....

    23 October 2012

    Before the clamor of the day, before the fury starts, Let me seek You in the Way and find Your gracious heart! Let me hear Your Truth and Love, and soak it into me, Take away the blinders Lord, let me see what is to be. Let me walk beside You Lord, holding...

  • The Antidote to Doctrinal Error

    19 September 2012

    Lately, due to the raging political battles being waged mainly in media, it has been queried if we really believe that Joseph Smith and his followers are less kooky and misled than Mohamed and his bunch? Well. I have to say that I don't know! I personally...

  • Straight Down the Middle?

    22 October 2012

    We, in our natural human pride, think to ourselves, "How hard can it be? I mean, He said that you simply don't turn to the right or to the left!" Seriously? But, really, I catch myself saying, or at least thinking, stuff that is that simplistic. Then...

  • For the Family of Elohim

    25 October 2012

    (That would be The One True & Living G-d! The G-d of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob! The Father of the Messiah, Yeshua! Some Thoughts for Today - As pertaining to our current Political/Social/Spiritual Climate): I am not a prophet, and definitely not the son...

  • Legacy?

    19 March 2013

    When I am gone will photos really be all that remain, of who I was, the mark I left, for all my toil and pain? Or will there be a legacy of righteousness and truth? In writings, and in music, and in living, breathing proof? Will my life then be reflected...

  • The Ancient Wisdom of Consistency

    22 February 2013

    "Try? There is no 'try'! Do , or do not!" ~ Yoda (the creators of whom were obviously reflecting a bit of "ancient wisdom", which was most likely borrowed from the Torah - an example of which follows...) "Choose - today - whom you will serve." ~ God (And...

  • The Popular Philosphy of "Karma"

    01 November 2012

    Today there is a lot said about "Karma". This has become the socially accepted term which is tolerated by the masses and acknowledged by those who consider themselves to be intellectual and more "with it". It is considered to be a "non-religious" term,...
