Christian Reading Material

Today, I happened to walk by a buzz. Several people were standing around gawking at a stack of books. I went over to see what was up. It was a collection of the Twilight Series from Stephanie Meyer. I have never read any of her writings, but I know this series is about Vampires.



"Vampires?" I quizzed. "Yes!" they all replied. "These are wonderful books, well written, with interesting characters." "I liked the movie" another piped in. "Yes, there is another movie coming soon!" which… Continue

Christian Idolatry

I have noticed that the vast majority of Christians I encounter are engaged in idolatry, and don't know it. True story follows.



During this past Easter season, a piece of artwork depicting Jesus praying in the garden of Gethsemane disappeared from its usual location. One particular person was highly disturbed. This person ranted and raved, waving their arms about claiming that someone had taken down the picture of Jesus. "Who could it have been!?", they cried. "Who could it have… Continue

Sunday Sinners

This is copied from my blog to this blog...



I enjoy Sundays. My partner and I usually head off to the Farmer's Market for some fresh produce, maybe a potted flower, or some of the fabulous Goat Cheese they sell there. Today we rounded up some freshly shucked Silver Queen Corn, Yellow Squash, and snagged a couple Elephant Ears for our shaded back yard. Oh and we got some blueberries as well. We are having dinner with friends, and I am making a Blueberry Cobbler, and some fried… Continue

Performing Religious Music

I am a singer. Nature provided me with physical characteristics that produce sounds that can be pleasing to the human ear. People tell me I sing wonderfully. Over the years I finally learned to accept praise. I tell them what I truly believe. I am only a conduit through which the music moves. I enjoy singing. It is freeing in a way that I cannot describe with words. I have heard athletes describe the state of mind they are in when they are playing at their peak. It is much the same for me, and… Continue
