The Ninth of Av

Columbus and the Ninth of Av by Martha Hoeber Tisha b’Av, the ninth day of the month of Av (which in our calendar always falls around the end of July or the beginning of August), is the date on which, twice, the Temple was destroyed, first by Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylonian army in 587 BC, and the […]


Jesus is not a Pinata!

When Pilgrims cry out “O Lord, hear my voice! Be attentive to my cry for mercy.” they are placing their trust and their hope in the Lord. Where is your hope? Do you rely on the God who spoke the universe into existence? The one who is so vast, so powerful, yet he knows you down […]

Thank the Farmer not the Chef

Nick was daydreaming as usual. The morning was perfect for losing oneself in one’s thoughts. And that’s where Nick wandered, as he explored the creek bordering the farmer’s fields, lost in thought. As he searched the clear waters that tumbled over stones worn smooth, Nick dreamed of winning the big competition. Since he was a […]


A Cargo of Compassion

This past week I had the privilege of being a St. Peter’s Ambassador through Pathways to Home* as I delivered furniture to two previously homeless families. Through the generosity of a St. Peter’s family, not one, but two, families received furniture for their homes. As I helped our St Peter’s family move the furniture out of […]

    The vision of the New Humanity voiced in the New Covenant does indeed express a vision that includes people from every tribe and nation.

I want to be reconciled with all of my brothers and sisters in Christ. To me, the main […]

  • The Banner of Christ Alone July 1, 2015
    Some of the national debate which has ensued following the shooting of nine Christians in Charleston revolves around whether to furl the Confederate flag, as it is now being used as a banner under which many of the white supremacist groups fly. I want to add to some of the thoughts on heritage and the […]

    Psalm 141 A psalm of David. 1 I call to you, Lord, come quickly to me;     hear me when I call to you. 2 May my prayer be set before you like incense;     may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice. 3 Set a guard over my mouth, Lord;     keep watch over the door […]

  • Everlasting Love June 19, 2015
    “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good” (v.1). Psalm 136 asks us to take a moment and thank God for His goodness to us. The repeated phrase, “His love endures forever,” answers our question of why we should give thanks. God’s love is an everlasting love. It is eternal. It has no beginning […]
