Thinking of the Savior

This week I’ve been thinking of the Savior. Celebrating the Lord’s Table has a way of bringing me back to those events which unfolded around Passover many years ago. The agony He endured is incomprehensible to me. I can’t imagine humanity being so cruel that we could...

Life Lessons From Children

Childlike Faith

On Tuesday we celebrate the 247th birthday of our day of independence. On our agenda will be picnics, family, barbeque, and then fireworks to round out the day. I was thinking back to days when the children were young (and so was I).  I am crowd-averse, so big...

Have you ever read Leviticus?

Have you ever read Leviticus? When you did, was it enjoyable? It is not that bad, but it is a book which contains passages which require some discipline. But if you carefully apply your Bible study methods, you can find veins of gold hidden among the rocks. It is in...
