the weapons of war

For the Christian person, the bible says, the weapons of warfare are not carnal, they are not physical. The weapons of the Christian are not swords, guns, clubs, bombs, rocks and not made of metal. If we belong to Christ in some ways, we are called to be David in battle, throwing off the chain…

enter grace

Photo by Anna Shevchuk on Pexels.com I find grace an overused word in Christian circles and american churches. Not that grace itself could ever be overused or run out. What I mean is that the word is used so frequently to describe so many things its true meaning has almost been lost at least to…

Turn You Northward

“Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward.” — DEUTERONOMY 2:3 There comes a day like today and 100 days before it when I am bloody tired of circling the same mountain, moving the same pile of bricks, traveling the same road around and around observing the same scenery and encountering the same…
