OUT OF THE CHAOS 07.05.2021

There are moments when I contemplate writing a book. I consider entitling it, “ETC” because it would be a collection of all my random wanderings gathered into one space. The post today might feel like I decided to do that because I did. First . . . 3Then God said, “Let there be light,” and …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 03.15.2021

The account of the Israelites’ deliverance from Egypt is a beautiful revelation of God to the world through a specific group of people.

OUT OF THE CHAOS 08.28.2020

I spent most of this month on vacation. Nine days camping with my family: children, spouses, grandchildren. Eight days in Montana with my mom.

Wisdom from the Lord… This is what the Lord says: Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the Lord. They are like stunted shrubs in the desert, with no hope for the future. They will live in the barren wilderness, in an uninhabited salty …

Happy Sunday! Today whether you listen online, take a walk in nature or attend a service in person, my prayer is that you encounter the Living God! I remind you that we have not been given a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind! No matter where your comfort level is …

Monday morning I retreated to my deck for some quiet time with Jesus. I have often closed my posts with the priestly blessing from Numbers 6. It goes like this: May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace. …
