The following is a series of thoughts triggered by Ephesians 3:3 “a time to tear down and a time to build up”. They start in the Garden of Eden, stop in Ephesians and consider briefly, Robert Frost’s “Mending Walls”. It’s about 5 minute too long and another 10 minutes too short. Thank you for your patience.
You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. However, I believe that we need to consider the truths we live by in the light of God’s TRUTH revealed through Jesus Christ. If they contradict one another, we must discard our truth and replace it with God’s. “A time to plant and a time to pluck up what is planted.”
Greetings, I am beginning a challenging series on Ecclesiastes 3: 1-15. This an introduction filled with poignant questions I feel we need to ask and answer in order to live the abundant and meaningful lives God intends for us. Thank you for listening.
Tonight I offer only a prayer in response to the shocking events that took place in our nation’s capital. I must warn you that I get emotional when I speak with God. I have left no time to hear God’s reply, so I encourage you to spend some time in contemplation following this prayer listening to your heart to discern the voice of God. We need to live by faith into tomorrow trusting God will show us the way.
The message on this last Sabbath of 2020 focuses on Hope and how faith enables us to see it where others despair. The song of Simeon is an unsung Christmas Carol and his words are a warning to everyone who dares to share the love of God with the world.
