  • ROUND: When You Say Farewell

    My 11-month-old grandson is learning to wave goodbye. He has said, “Bye-Bye,” once. Only two people, including myself, were witnesses to those spoken words. It was exciting to share the news with his parents, who have not heard him say those words yet.

  • Numbering our days

    The bunkmate is a multitasking person which really means…He starts one job, hits a snag, quits, and begins another. This continues until…I insist we attempt to finish the job that is the most important, and is affecting our sweet dispositions. It is not as easy to complete as we would like.

  • Don’t Worry Your Prayers

    Recently, a friend shared her prayers and revelation concerning her adult children and grandchildren, who were traveling to Mexico to visit family. The two adults and three children had set out on their journey around 4 p.m. on a Friday. Because of the threat of thunderstorms, my friend was concerned. Before going to bed that evening, she lifted her family in prayer. However, she was still nervous about their journey until she received a text message around 9:45 p.m. from her daughter.

    One might expect political entities such as the United Nations or individual Islamic nations to discount the significance of Israel; however, minimizing Israel is also being done by the least expected constituency, i.e. the “church.” The movement is termed “replacement theology.” It is a movement that has been around for centuries but is presently re-emerging with millions of proponents. The church was a mystery to the Jews and was not mentioned in the Old Testament but rather was established after the death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ.
