Spiritual is as Spiritual does

Paying close attention

A look at the 2 Peter 1:3-11 In a world of posturing and virtue signalling it is easy to forget the simplicity of doing good. Being right is of little value if you do not do right. We live in a divided world where it seems that certainty is more important that accuracy. Where a …

The Return of the King

3rd seal of revelation

I was in Costco picking up supplies recently and it was shocking to see hoarding, empty shelves, and limits on what you could buy. This Covid-19 virus seems to be terrifying everyone.

The path of Jesus is not a mountain to be climbed.It is not desert to cross.It is not a code to be cracked.It is not a puzzle to be solved.It is a love to be lived.
