Not long ago this article came up as a “related post” on a site I was on. The title (“Is Your Church Worship More Pagan Than Christian”) struck me curious so I read it. I wondered who had written the piece and scrolled back to the top only to see that it was written by …
Philippians 4:6-7 is a great verse. But I have to admit, it’s so hard to live by. I mean, in reality, who doesn’t want the “peace of God.” Vines describes it as “sense of rest and contentment consequent thereon”. That sounds good to me
I’m writing to ask you to pray. There are SO MANY candidates. There are SO MANY positions and agendas. I can’t imagine that it will be easy for the citizens of Ukraine to make an informed choice that they can depend on. That makes it a difficult decision for them.
We decided to take Micah with us. 1. He loves to go out. 2. He rarely gets to out with just us (Mary and I). 3. We thought it would be good for the people there to see him.

The weather has been incredible. Highs in the high 60s and low 70s. You just don’t get any better than that in Ukraine – in October!! They say (who is “they”, anyway?) that this means the winter is going to be unbearable. Well, we’ll find out. For now, we will just enjoy the wonderful weather while we can.
