Eleventh Sunday After Pentecost

Think About It

“Records come and go but the glory of God is eternal. I no longer run for self-recognition but to reflect His perfect will that is already set in stone. I don’t deserve anything, but by grace through faith Jesus has given me everything.” (After winning the gold in this year’s Olympics and breaking the world record in the women’s breaststroke.)- Tatjana Schoenmaker

Why would the bible tell us what sort of things to think about? Do we need ‘thought police?” In the mid-1960s Mao Zedong saw independent thought as the enemy of his Chinese revolution. Can’t we think what we want, after all our thoughts are secret and no one needs to know.

Third Sunday after Pentecost

Words are like eggs dropped from great heights;
you can no more call them back than ignore the mess
they leave when they fall. -Jodi Picoult

Tell the Truth

I’ve mentioned truth in past communiques, but today I want us to see it from an individual perspective, because truth is vital for a healthy emotional and consequently physical life. Pr. 23:7 As a (man) thinks within himself, so he is. This is saying our feelings, passions and behavior are subject to and conditioned by what we think, i.e., by what we believe to be true.
