It is a procession that’s been on the road ever since Jesus’ resurrection.
Hands that dabbled in wood and stone in Joseph’s workshop now repair us, and rebuild with us, even from dust.
Why Not Both/And?
“And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled…
Beware Less Efficient Shots
Too bad people tend to forget the true meaning of Easter. So texted a former coworker named Dan last night. Aside from feeling reflective he was feeling pretty good because his Colorado Avalanche scored a road victory over my hometown L.A. Kings. One reason – maybe THE reason – that so many miss the true…
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

You Need a Hero?
Ah, those golden days of Euro-made Steve Reeves Hercules flicks. Got to thinking about heroes the other night. I caught an episode of Law & Order, something I do less and less because the show’s become preachy about “issues.” But I still have a soft spot for it and record the episodes so I can…
Have A Look
Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26 “Look,” says the Lord. OK, this morning I got around to one of those acts of obedience that score points to bank…
