Continuing in Chapter 1

Bible Class, Books, Church

It’s true, we do take our time in studying God’s Word. It’s a treasure. It’s a delight. It’s a joy, well worth our time. We can snicker at ourselves when others tease us, saying things like, “By the time you finish going through I Corinthians, you’ve also read the entire rest of the Bible in…

Home from Church, but I will listen to the sermon later…

Back Pain, Books

Breathing issues and sciatic pain kept me home from church today. I don’t like that. It took me so long to learn that hearing God’s Word preached and receiving God’s extravagant gift of forgiveness is a treasure! I don’t ever want to take it for granted. I probably do take it for granted, I just…

quote from “Hammer of God”

Books

He had never taken theology very seriously. The great philosophers had interested him most. But in all of Leibnitz’ Theodicée he could not recall a single line that even remotely dealt with such things as this.

That makes it easier for me to simplify things, I’m combining my multilayered lists into one simple one. It will combine reading and writing goals. That doesn’t mean that…

Writers and Teachers = READERS

Books

Two old sayings need to be combined: All writers are readers. All teachers are readers. Ever so often, I may let you into part of my current reading lists. Maybe, I think.

Past, Present, and Future… We Are Still Tied to Them All

Books

Most of you know that I get books from the TEXAS TALKING BOOK PROGRAM. While I get to do most of my reading via Kindle-apps, this is a great program for when I’m not connected to one of my digital devices. (Yes, it happens!) A cartridge comes with a book on it. I look at…
