If you had access to one of the greatest powers in the universe, and could legitimately use it any time you wanted, 24/7, and it had the power to bring you peace of mind, what would you do? Well as a matter of fact we have such a power but for some reason we human […]

Each day as we go about our routine we take for granted the devices, structures and the institutions that enable us to do so. We are amazed by their complexity and just accept the fact that they work. Most of the time they do, even though we are not sure how or why. Many have […]

The readings today made it really difficult to decide which one to talk about. We have the priestly blessing in Number 6, one of my favorite Bible passages in Proverbs 3, and Jesus’ words in Luke 17 which fit perfectly with our current situation. Being the sort of person who is terrible at making decisions […]

As we settle into our new reality it’s useful to try to put a positive spin on what we’re experiencing. God has given us time inside our homes, with our families, time that we didn’t have before. And time is one of the most precious resources of life. What are we doing with that resource – and […]

Welcome to Spring! How do we know it’s Spring? Forget the calendar – we’ve just finished Psalms and now we’re starting Proverbs. Let the Bible be your barometer! And since we’re starting Proverbs, I thought we could look at wisdom’s advice in chapter 1. There’s obviously a lot of very practical advice in the book […]

As I look out of my window it’s a beautiful sunny day in Simi Valley. And today is a day to glorify God, which ties in with our reading today in Psalm 145. It’s hard to take a break from Luke, especially since chapter 12 has sections on anxiety and being ready for our Lord’s return. […]

Hi everyone. I write these thoughts during my lunch hour and I have just finished eating a half rack of BBQ ribs leftover from TGI Friday’s from last night (take out!) They were delicious and I feel well fed. All of which is a segue into today’s reading from Luke 11 and the Lord’s Prayer.

Yeah, that’s me. Welcome to my life, everyone . Viruses are tiny. They’re much smaller than human cells and even smaller than bacteria. You can only see the very largest of them through a powerful microscope so they’re basically invisible. It’s no wonder, then, that people in the ancient near east didn’t know what was […]

A Bible seminar student, who later became a sister, once told me that she was so impressed with how Christadelphians always said “Lord willing” when making plans for the future.  To her, it was a unique way for people to look at life and making plans.  We ought not to assume anything.  The future is […]
