Many, in Islam, are saying that their “recent” hostility is because of the Jewish people. They also blame it on the “crusaders” (American aggression). But what about those Christians in Islamic countries who are just trying to eke out a life in safety and in worship of the One they believe lived 2000 years ago. What about those who haven’t raised their fists (or voices for that matter) in defiance.. Read More
Any amount of reading about Islam and you will run into the statement that Islam is a Religion of Peace and that it is tolerant. I guess it all depends on what peace and tolerance means.

September 22nd begins what Jews call “The 10 days of awe”, the 10 days prior to the holiest day of the year, The Day of Atonement. It has been a spiritual treasure for me to learn about these practices and blessing to participate in cycles of examining my heart… Read More
With the war in the Middle East occurring and subsequently ending only days ago; I want to share a bit of news that few people realize happened close to the beginning of the war. A book was found. It wasn’t just any book, it was a special one, it was a prayer book. A book of Psalms. No, it wasn’t found in the Dead Sea desert. (Although, it does remind some of us of another similar find, albeit on a larger scale, only 58 years ago.) No, this find was found on the lofty island of Ireland. It was discovered in an bog, an ark made of peat moss.

Hello Everyone, I’ve been contemplating Jeremiah 22:16 speaking of King Josiah when it says,”‘He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. Is that not what it means to know Me?’ declares the Lord.” or as another version puts it, “Isn’t that what knowing Me is all about?” Pretty loaded “question” huh? You could go in alot of directions with it I’m sure. The question.. Read More

Recent events in Palestine have been disturbing. The Christian community has been in major decline in recent years and are being pushed out of areas that were once predominately Christian communities. Since the First Century there has always been a Christian presence in Israel/Palestine, but in recent years their communities have been taken over. Areas once Christian are now almost exclusively, in some cases entirely, Muslim. Please take time to.. Read More
Today I’d like to share a quote that stirs me, I pray it does the same for you: “More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.” -Alfred, Lord Tennyson
