"I walk through this sinful world as a
pilgrim in a foreign country" - CH Spurgeon
On the upside my health is starting to improve a bit due to warmer weather and long walks with Swamp Thing: The Spaniel Of Doom. We like to go down to the rehab center where Swamp Thing's hugs bring smiles to the shut-ins there. our next visit is only a couple of hours away! (yay Friday!) And another thing to look forward to is a welcome brunch this Sunday for a group of believers who finished new members class at our First Congregational Church of the Bereans. The cool thing about our church is that we are most definitely not seeker sensitive. Visitors will get a warm welcome, a hearty handshake, and maybe even a hug, but they will not get secular rock music masquerading as "worship music", a watered down sermon, or a Service Lite to entice them to come back. They will get the real thing; old school hymns that actually Worship God, and a hard core biblically based sermon centered on the love of God, the sin of man, and the redemption through Christ. Notes will be taken, bibles will be referenced, and tears will be shed. And if they didn't bring their own bible there's an NASB right there in the pew for them to borrow. So by the time a visitor decides to join we know that they are there for the worship, and they know there's no entertainment... at least during Worship Service. The board meetings can be quite entertaining at times.

Here we go again, yet another homosexual pair attacking a Christian bakery. The homosexuals claim that they feel "dehumanized" after the bakery wouldn't bake a cake that celebrates their sin for them.
The USAF continues it's attacks on Christian values, this time their target is the Bible itself. They have removed the Bible from the "Missing Man Table". To a USAF Veteran the "Missing Man Table" is a powerful and moving tribute to those we have lost in armed conflict such as POW's and MIA, and the Bible on the table was a powerful reminder of the faith that sustained our POW's through their horrid captivity.
