Common Sense

One of my favorite sayings is "The only problem with common sense is that it's not common."  In the past I used to set aside a month to read the book of Proverbs.  The book has 31 chapters and I would read a chapter a day as part of my old testament reading.  There's a lot of common sense stuff in Proverbs and a lot of good advice as well that deserves meditation time.  When Jesus first became real and personal to me( or when I first experienced His reality) I decided to add a scripture verse…See More

The Ghosts around the edges

Posted on 1st mo. 29, 2017 at 5:38pm 0 Comments

A friend of mine recorded this song that goes on about ghosts around the edges of the moon.  He does a very nice job.  On the surface it doesn't make much sense but the music and his voice touches the soul.  He's a very deep Christian who likes to mingle where the people are: subways, central park, occupy wall street gatherings and small cafes.  What comes out is sometimes hard to decipher and this song is certainly that but as I listened to it and reflected upon it the thought came to me…

Revelation vs. Opionion

Posted on 1st mo. 12, 2017 at 12:09am 14 Comments

Quakers talk about continuing revelation.  I think it's important to define your terms if you are going to have a serious discussion on a topic.  The following scripture involves what I understand a revelation to be:

Mat 16:15  He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

Mat 16:16  And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

Mat 16:17  And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not…

Compassion vs. Politics

Posted on 12th mo. 31, 2016 at 9:40am 41 Comments

When I was 38 years old I walked away from my political life, resigning as a local committeeman, to follow Jesus.  I re-examined my career and distanced myself from work that would, in my opinion at the time, hinder my spiritual development.  I knew my weaknesses and my desire to please people and did not want to constantly be fighting those weaknesses while trying to reprogram my life into a WWJD lifestyle. 

This course of action came at great cost financially and eventually led to…

For God so loved the World

Posted on 12th mo. 26, 2016 at 11:58pm 2 Comments

The one concept I love most about Christianity is that of a personal God.  One who knows and loves me personally.  One who would have died on the cross for me if I was the only one in the world; one who knew me before I was in my mother's womb; one who called me by name before I was born; and yet there it is: John  3:16 on billboards and placards at sporting events:  For God so loved the WORLD ......  I'm not an only child.  I have siblings whom God loves as much as I and how he treats me…

Hello James, I just want to let you know that your thoughts about my" rantings" and my lack of "integrity" came to my email but did not post on the website. I appreciate your thoughts on my response to Micah's post.

Hi James, Early this morning received email with a statement from statement from you reading:

"I think you have to define Presence as you understand it before others can evaluate it."

However, I do not see it on the post itself. I just wanted to let you know I am willing to respond to your statement.
