Today, and every day…

My friends rallied to me. I am better than I was a week ago. My friend whose kids grew up with mine came to find me a week ago. He tried to take me back to the mountains with him. We stood, instead, in a very public place where he found me and he heldContinue Reading

Bathsheba

Reread the story today King David and Bathsheba. Bathsheba does not get a title. Maybe the Old Testament of the Holy Bible should be interpreted from a feminine view point. Where is the outrage for how she is treated? So many unanswered questions Did Bathsheba get a day in court? The writer does not seemContinue Reading

A Tired Walker, a Hot Day, A Dirt Road

He was bent or so it looked to me. He was old or so it seemed to me. I passed him easily. I was young. He looked down at the dirt road. He did not look up at me even after I got by him. I know he did not look at me even afterContinue Reading

The Necessity of the Christ for a Good Life

On Resurrection Sunday a few years ago, numerous pastors of churches in a fading mainline American denomination rose to deny Jesus. The statement dozens of these heretics had agreed upon was spoken as in unison. They said, “Jesus, called the Christ, if he ever actually existed, was certainly not the ¬†divine Son of God andContinue Reading

How Does a Good Life Look?

Martin Luther’s short catechism begins with the phrase, “I believe God made me.” The man who rediscovered Christianity (at a time it was thought worth finding) might have announced his belief in God’s act of universal creation. He certainly believed God made it all, makes it all, keeps it all, redeems it all. When heContinue Reading

What is a Good Life?

I perceive God in Jesus, the Christ. God chooses to show Godself as Father and Holy Spirit, but today I take the time to write about the apprehension of God in Jesus, the Christ, and make no excuses for the practice. Jesus is the Ultimate example of the Moral Exemplar. His life is The GoodContinue Reading
