Prayer List

Prayer List

Our Primary Prayer focus for this week is on Christ’s work through his Word: Calming all hearts that are filled with fear, shame, pride, or grief. As we discover new ways to search the scripture together and care for our neighbor. As the Holy Spirit develops faith in children and youth – through family devotions and other means. For people and families to read from the Bible and pray together daily.

Creation’s Glories

Creation’s Glories

This year’s Florida drive was a little different than most years – primarily because it was in September, not March/April – though we did follow our usual path.  We take the eastern route down, driving around Columbus and through Virginia, West Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Jacksonville to get to my aunt’s home near the Atlantic coast.  Then, after our time in Orlando, we drive ‘straight up’ I-75 through Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Ohio to get home.

Stepping Away

Stepping Away

A friend and colleague of mine recently stepped away from social media for a time.  He is back now, I believe, with the ‘intentional interim’ time now completed.  Personally, I have not recognized the same issue for myself – though stepping away from ‘normal life’ (while not disconnecting from social media) is something that I am enjoying as I write this!

Inertia

Inertia

Inertia:  A tendency to do nothing or to remain unchanged.  Inertia:  A property of matter by which it continues in its existing state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line unless that state is changed by an external force.  Inertia + friction must be overcome if change is to take place.
