Ephesians 4 or The Five Fold Ministry

Raised Catholic (Elementary and High School and Catholic Fraternity in college and post grad degree at a Catholic college) I recognize the weakness of the hierarchal structure of the Catholic Church.  However, I also recognize the wisdom of those in power.  They are very good at discerning the gifts of their priests and assigning them titles and roles that make the best use of those gifts.  Even when they disenfranchise an entire sex from participation in management, they do a very good job of…See More

What do I deserve?

I read a comment on FB about the DACA situation that said "everyone that is in this country deserves to be here" and it struck a nerve.  Have we become so filled with a sense of self-worth that we think we actually deserve the things we have?  I was born in the US but I know I am not more deserving to have been born here than anyone else born on that day in India, Thailand, Mexico or Syria.  I am blessed with a great relationship with God through Jesus but I know I don't deserve that…See More

Life and Chess

Posted on 9th mo. 3, 2017 at 11:30am 0 Comments

I watched a movie last nite where the main character,  embittered by tragedy, posed that familiar question: "If there's a God why is there so much tragedy in the world?".  After posting an earlier blog on the shedding of blood my mind found itself with thoughts of God who knows all things - past, present and future - contemplating how best to achieve His goal (I will not, at least at this time, presume to know what that goal was or is) and the game of chess came immediately to mind.  In…

Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin

Posted on 9th mo. 3, 2017 at 8:30am 2 Comments

Hebrews 9:22 tells us that blood must be shed to purge sin from our lives.  I believe this calls for personal sacrifice and not necessarily the physical shedding of blood.  The same personal sacrifice that is inherent in the divine love that Jesus demonstrated by both His life and His death.  When Jesus was approached to act in a family dispute about the distribution of a family inheritance He made it plain that He had come to change hearts and not financial equality (Luke 12:13-15).  More…

Prayer

Posted on 8th mo. 24, 2017 at 6:17pm 2 Comments

Sometimes prayer is the first thing I resort to when I'm in need.  Other times it's the last.  Urgency has a lot to do with it.  When I think I have plenty of time or the pain isn't that great that it stops me from being able to get from point A to point B, I go it on my own - go to the Doctor, reason with others, do what seems to be necessary at the time.  When I have no time left I pray.  When the pain begins to be immobilizing, I pray.  I pray for others when they ask me or God puts them…

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.
