Romans 16 (The Relational Church)

February 2, 2020 As some of you know, I am obsessed with the Campus Quilts Company, which makes T shirts into quilts. I am so thankful because many of you, along with ladies from other churches, knitted and crocheted blankets for my babies, and I didn’t want to give them away, although my baby days […]

Romans 15 (Thermal Exhaust Port)

January 26, 2020 In the very first Star Wars movie, viewers are introduced to the Death Star, a giant planet-sized weapon that can aim at and obliterate entire worlds with a single shot. Unfortunately, somebody stupidly (or, deliberately) put in a “thermal exhaust port,” a shaft leading directly to the Death Star’s nuclear reactor core. […]

Romans 15 (Harmony)

There are so many ways in which Christians divide from one another. On one side, there are evangelical Christians, on another, mainline Protestants like ourselves, then Roman Catholics, Orthodox believers, […]

December 29, 2019 I was looking for a pinata for New Year’s Eve and I was immediately presented with two choices: No Trump 2020 Pinata Make America Great Again 2020 Pinata Political leaders are, and always have been, polarizing. Therefore, if you don’t like the current leadership, Paul’s words are concerning to say the least. […]

Romans 12 (Rewiring the Brain)

November 18, 2019 I love The Battle Hymn of the Republic; it’s hard not to become emotional singing those moving words, glory, glory, hallelujah, His truth is marching on. Originally, the lyrics included “as He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free.” However, at the time of World War II, […]
