Aug. 7 Update on Elaine

Elaine continues to lose ground and is now bedfast. It has been weeks since she could walk, even with help. We were in the Hospice In-Patient Unit for 10-days to get her pain under control, which they did. We came home the 29th and have a hospital bed and other amenities in our living room,…

#251 – July 16 Update on Elaine

Here’s an update on Elaine, although I struggle with the trying to avoid either overstating or understating her condition. We are now under Hospice, not as an “end of life, keep her comfortable” thing as much as palliative care to address her recurrent and serious pain attacks, and her observable decline in strength and balance.…

#250 – Feeding the Hungry

I will not post much for a while in order to focus on another sphere in my life, but I want to leave this with you. Maybe my using “well-fed” recently was misleading. I was speaking of good church folks who are satisfied with the diet offered by the organized church as many know it.…

#249 – Update on Elaine

This is exciting! We saw the oncologist yesterday for the results of the recent PET scan. The bleeding ulcer is healed. HEALED! The tumor is gone. GONE!

#248 – Feeding the Well-Fed

Truth and Wisdom are of God. Truth announces what “is” according to God’s design and Wisdom instructs us in applying it in life.

Why, then, would Jeremiah’s warnings not similarly apply to America and to the Church?…

#245 – The Issue

Gas prices, gun-control, a SCOTUS announcement on abortion, or Ukraine – none are the issue of the day for those who claim to follow Christ. There is but one issue. Lawlessness is ugly. It is as hideous as the snake whose venom is displayed in the oft-distressing pseudo-issues above, slithers toward you with its menacing…

#244 – The Time Is Fulfilled

Jesus said, “The Time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand, repent, and believe in the Gospel.” * By that He meant that He had, after 4000 years of God’s preparation, come to establish His rule in Satan’s realm on the earth. His obedience to the Father would make it possible, and…

#243 – II Cor. 13:5 Self-Examination, Part 3 of 3

Jesus was drawn to and loved broken people but He despised hypocrisy. He never holds us to a standard of human perfection but He does require us to actively pursue righteousness. * DO WE embrace Paul’s “I press on” disposition ** as a condition for Christ-followers? https://biblia.com/bible/esv/philippians/3/12-16 DO WE dare to invite God to search…
