No lesser, nor greater

He made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.  And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! Philippians 2:7-8   My book I Will Not Hide will soon be on its way to the […]

Come to me as a child? Really?

  EXCERPT 8 – I WILL NOT HIDE  (Last excerpt) I was treated like a child, though I wasn’t aware I was behaving like one. Even now, as I look back, I find it hard to believe I showed the child in me to the extent I did. I had thought my child lived mostly […]

In a snowstorm yet, Excerpt 5 from my book

  IN A SNOWSTORM YET In March 2008 a big snowstorm surprised us on a Living Room day. And it was almost April! Snowflakes fell, huge and thick and fast. They were sticking to the grass and to the trees. With all that snow, we expected to have a smaller turnout than usual. We made […]

How did he feel?

  Then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words. They sent their disciples to him along with the Herodians. “Teacher,” they said, “we know that you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You aren’t swayed by others, […]
