To What are you Attracted? Titus 1.5-9
Grace and Peace. There is something about this pairing that shoots straight to my heart. It sounds good, it sounds right, and if you stop and think about it, what greater thing could you offer someone, what kinder sentiment?
May God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior give you grace and peace~1
Paul knew grace. His entire life had been turned upside down by the grace of God—by the grace of God, I am what I am—he said of himself.2 And so, to Titus, who he left to…
Why Jesus? Titus 1.1-4; Colossians 1.15-18 “…

“Divinely wise souls often infuriate the worldly-wise because they always see things from the Divine point of view. The worldly are willing to let anyone believe in God if he pleases, but only on condition that a belief in God will mean no more than belief in anything else. They will allow God, provided that God does not matter.…Continue

‘Ah, he just likes to hear himself talk!’ I remember my dad saying about someone he could barely stand because he went on and on talking. (Kinda’ funny, because boy, did my dad like to talk!)

Women, Men and Bible Study.

Sold out. January, 2014.
While I no longer set New Year’s resolutions, I often think…
When did I stop? Can’t really remember when I gave up the practice, just know that I have not really made a New Year’s Resolution for some time. Guess I believe most resolutions wind up in a scrapheap, without much but frustration left behind. …Continue
