Martyrdom

My Pastor, Jeff lent me a book of his on writings from the early church (the church that existed pre-Constantine or about the first 3 centuries after Pentecost).  That church is also well known for being a very persecuted church.  During that time, being Christian could get you tortured or killed. It was against the law […]

Quick post

Sometimes I say too much. Sometimes I say too little. Finding the balance is difficult. Yeah…stupid fortune cookie post. Basically I just wanted to disprove the “Rich can only post on Thursday theory”. Meh…. ; )

Saving Grace

We watched Saving Grace Monday night.  What a great show!  It definitely has potential.    Holly Hunter is fantastic as the feisty and quite earthy police detective.  And what a great angel angel.  He’s a greasy haired, chaw spittin’, redneck lookin’ guy…who just so happens to be the messenger from the Almighty to rescue Grace from […]

Axiom-Man!

I happened upon an audio series for a superhero story named Axiom-Man here.   Btw, you can listen to it for free here. It is produced by A.P. Fuchs (pronounced phonetically as “FOOKS”) who is an independent writer in Canada.  He has actually produced his own series of novels for this hero (and others).  For the record, […]

Daddy can you fix this?

Some years ago I listened to a lecture from a Center for Disease Control (CDC) physician who quoted Louis Carrol from the very classic Alice In Wonderland that went something like this (a character named the “Red Queen” speaking):  I’m running as fast as I can just to keep standing still.  The MD likened this […]

Enter the Worship Circle

And the third blessing is to come.  Tomorrow we are all traveling down to Waco (a mere 2 hours south of here) to hang out with the Polks.  Jon is another good, dear old friend who has also stood with us over time.  And he also graciously hosts my blog.  Well, Jon is also hosting […]

Visiting

Second bit of news today is that our good friend David Rutherford left to go back to Mississipi (where he works as a professor of Geography at Ole Miss University).  David is a dear, dear friend who has stuck with my family through many hard times.  We met the Burley clan and he went to […]
