Why Are We So Afraid of Jesus?

by Ladd

4 “Hear the word of the Lord, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel. 5 Thus says the Lord: What wrong did your ancestors find in me that they went far from me,

5 “Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7 The mind […]

Sunset at Mary's

It’s easy to let your spirituality slip. We become so busy that the next thing we know we have stopped praying, studying, and sharing our faith.

Baptism is the Beginning of a Journey

by Ladd

Some days are just perfect and last Sunday was one of those days. Three wonderful ladies were baptized in a pristine lake under the watchful eye of a beautiful old rustic cabin. The sun shone hot, the lake breeze kept it cool and the fellowship was amazing. As each of the ladies was baptized I […]

The Wonder of an Eye

by Ladd

Last post I wrote about how our post-Darwinian society can trace its roots back to the thinking of Epicurus and his rejection of the gods in favor of random clashing atoms to explain life. We saw how the Roman poet Lucretius revived the philosophy less than seventy years before Jesus appeared on the scene and […]

Imperfect Messengers

by Ladd
