What a great and current example of "going for the gold" even when being written off. I have watched intermittently and did not know this story. Thanks for this.

Comment on Thoughts on James 2 by ainsleyblair

James is an interesting book to me. I like the point about our faith being worked out in our lives and how we treat others. Paul does have a different emphasis - the great evangelist with perhaps what we'd today call an ADD mind - brilliant and dedicated, but dense (not as in "dull" but ideas condensed and at first read can seem disconnected. Not being a theologian and having memory problems after 75+ years of sleep deprivation, I benefit from NIV, Phillips' NT, etc., but "cut my teeth" on the KJV - so it's more familiar.

Nicely done, Henry. In my wedding ceremony, I have another application of the triangle. It puts God at the top corner, and the bride and groom on the bottom corners. I make your same point, that the closer they are to God, the closer they are to each other. It's the one thing they seem to remember from the ceremony.

Good stuff! Thanks for these thoughts. When I'm exceptionally sleep-deprived/depressed from decades of not sleeping, I take courage from the Scripture that assures me the Spirit can intercede on our behalf with great earnestness. Often my prayers are elemental - "Thank you, God" - and "Please help me" - I'm not free of the hindrances/hazards you mentioned and agree God is way smarter, never taken by surprise, and not in a panic or hurry.

This is from the book Inspiration: Hard Questions, Honest Answers by Alden Thompson. The art and poetry is by Wanda Thompson. I'm working on the layout for a book of Wanda's art.

Seasons and cycles - a beginning and an end - an end that is a beginning. I like the way this little article is inclusive (without being PC) and Biblical. Thanks, Henry.

Yes, the audio was a problem. I was also watching online, so I saw/heard only what was here. I thought it was still worthwhile to post.

Why did he take the mic away? Alden is so hard to hear

Only poorly informed fundamentalist Christians and fundamentalist atheists read the Bible literally.
