Thank You, Lord

I am starting the year off by expressing deep thanks for Pachelbel’s Cannon.  Chances are good you’ve heard it.  It’s soft and has that generic, classical music quality that makes it popular at weddings.  In fact, it may have been written specifically for that purpose.  There are many arrangements.  The string version, with violins playing the melody, is the most common.  You can hear it performed here if you so desire.  The arrangement I’m thankful for, however, is the one written for three…

Forgiveness and Reconciliation

In Luke 6:37 Jesus says, "Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:” Some people believe that forgiving also means reconciling.  But, it doesn’t.

Blessed Are The Base

And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen… 2 Cor 1:28

Brother E. preached and the prisoners listened.  Some mouths were open, some clamped tightly shut but no one fidgeted and every eye was fixed on him.  Brother E's words hit them like bullets that no armor could stop. Their effect was so apparent that I could hear the thud each made as it penetrated their hearts.  Their eyes, many filling with tears, broadcast their thoughts; I need to change, each said.…
