• What I see

    Whether in a hole or on a hill A mountain pinnacle or – slump. I see beauty; delicacy in the making of the spaces we are taking over between death and triumph.

  • LEADERSHIP 101 – The Davidic Standard: The Guardianship of God

    The beauty of the Hebrew portion of the Bible (which we call the “Old Testament”) is that if one story about the Kings of Israel or Judah perplexes you, there are at least one if not two other accounts of the very same situation.  The frustration with this is that if you didn’t know that [...]

  • LEADERSHIP 101 – The Davidic Standard

    I’ve been lightly studying through the book of 1 Chronicles.  Upon entering the overview chapters from David’s life as king (which begin at Chapter Ten, essentially), I feel like I have struck “leadership seminar” gold.  Today’s gold was so great I’ve decided to write this wee message concerning the four principles of leadership David had [...]

  • Seeking understanding of Passover

      Bring to recall a day before When I was not attending, Give words and sights to stick to bones As flesh when body’s mending   For in this room of simple state One broke the bread, and then they ate, And as they thirsted as we do, One gave a cup to drink from [...]

  • The Pyre

    I cannot understand the fire In which I cry to be consumed. I do not know for what I seek Except my daily bread and food, But asking for eternal joy To steal upon this deadened flesh— I feel that when Your fire comes I’ll finally desire that death.   Not like the martyr’s death [...]

  • The First Note

    Many, many years ago when the sun was just a child, dancing on the horizon, it’s crib, and the moon, her sister was just a twinkling star in the cool of evening, there was the First Note.  The sun was just a young girl.  Every ray that she sent out was new; new and sparkling.  [...]

  • Reflecting the Rule

    Since the recent move into my home, I’ve reflected on how much I love my new bedroom’s location. It’s tucked in the back of my house with windows covering two of its four walls, with all of them looking out upon cheery greenery.  To further enhance the view in this room, I have put up [...]

  • The Repairer of the Breach: A case for the whole of Isaiah 58

    The Road to Reconciliation When I was 14, my mother and I joined a Kings Kids team that traveled through Germany, Cz. Republic, Slovakia, and Poland with an evangelism and reconciliation theme.  During the 2nd World War these countries, particularly the latter three, historically turned on one another, and deep wounds and suspicions were sown [...]
