Do you remember The HAWAIIANS?

Andrea and I had the opportunity in the mid 1970’s to hear The HAWAIIANS in concert at the red brick Calvary Chapel just north of the University of Washington (Seattle) right next to I-5. We both remember the place was packed to the brim with people. It was an awesome presentation of praise, worship and […]

The Presence of God (with a capital G)

This post might take you a few minutes longer to read than you think, so why not grab a cup of coffee or tea before you continue. Some full-Gospel, charismatic congregations might say there is no life or anointing in traditional and denominational church services. After listening to this two or three times today, I […]

Global Climate Change: The Earth Has Shifted

  “The earth has shifted,” say Inuit elders. A new warning has come to NASA from the Inuits. They are warning that the change in climate is not due to global warming but rather, because of the Earth shifting a bit. The Inuits are local people that live in the Arctic regions of Canada, the […]

On processing recent terror, violence

“Been processing these horrific shootings for the past  couple of days. It’s incredibly heartbreaking to hear of these tragedies. I’ve been watching all the blame… Trump, guns, immigration, mental illness…  I was talking to a friend today about when I was a kid. I never thought or ever heard of someone dealing with their issues […]

Don’t lose your balance! (mar 3, 2013)

A couple of years ago I met an old man who used a diamond willow cane. He was in his 80s, frail and needed it to keep from falling. When I told him that I had recently been losing my balance because of diabetic neuropathy, he advised very strongly, “Hey, if you’re losing your balance, then you’d […]

Up there, in the sky (may 4, 2012)

Symbolic ⎯ The moon reflects the light of the sun during the darkness of night. The Son of God reflected the glory of His Father in the darkness of humanity.  The disciples said, “Shew us the Father.” Jesus answered, “Have I been so long with you, and yet hast thou not known me? He that hath seen […]

Man alive! (apr 8, 2012)

Man alive!  Jesus is why the flowers bloom! When God made the flowers, He had in mind the death, burial, resurrection AND visitation of His Son to everyone who has a birthday. We can see DBR&V every day ⎯ ⎯ when we go to sleep (we become unconscious, and are buried under covers) ⎯ when we get […]

Christmas BandAid (dec 24, 2011)

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.” John 14:27 “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:7 Christmas is God’s “cure-present” for hurting and dying hearts. If your heart is hurting because of things that have […]

Family: whose idea was it anyway? (feb 18, 2011)

We visited a resort town in the mountains of Oita Prefecture for a few days in early January. Yufuin is our favorite getaway spot! The natural hot spring spas, delicious food, quaint shops, and one special kind of coffee bean (that can only be purchased in this little getaway town) all helped us to experience the […]
