Attempt at honest dialog by an old, non-police officer white guy.

One of the Civil Rights protest slogans is "No Justice No Peace." That slogan has strong implications. When a peaceful Civil Rights protest is followed by rioting, it makes me wonder, “Has implication turned into action?”  The answer to that question affects my view of race in America. There is no firm information as to who is responsible for these riots.  I still, in my heart, believe the riots are not caused by the Civil Rights Movement. But my gut is telling me be on guard in personal…See More

"All zip files opened.  Are these Jana's worksheets?  If so, I can see how they would be helpful in structuring sermons. Maybe the closet I pray in is too small.   "

RE-IMAGINING OUR ATTITUDE

We’re in a pandemic!  What is God waiting for? So many in the world have said, "no," to Him--and He Respects that.  God isn't causing Covid-19.  But He's not Intervening.  He is Waiting on the sidelines--to be invited back in: to be called by His Creations. We Creatures of His have free will: the right to say "yes" or "no" to God. And we humans have been sending Him a lot of negativity in recent decades.  So, how's that working out for us?See More

A logical look at praying

Many think being on one’s knees is the way to pray.  But knee pain can set in quickly. Some set a clock for a certain time of daily prayer.  When time is up, prayer concludes. A walk with God is best because the distance of the walk lengthens the conversation.  A person gets more time to ask questions.  He Gets more time to Give and Repeat Answers.  God also provides receptacles along the path you walk with Him where you can discard those "prayers(?)" that are not in accordance with His Will.See More

Saying "yes" or "no" to God

Spoken of frequently in Christianity is a personal relationship with Christ.  One either has that or does not.  God seeks all of the world (John 12:47). God has Given us free will.  Free will is nothing more and nothing less than having the right to say, “no,” to God.  All human sin is committed after one says, “no,” to God.  But Grace allows that same sinner to say, “yes,” to God at other decision points in their life.  Clearly, whether God Exists has a “yes” or “no” answer. Perhaps what needs…See More

Time Off

Christians should understand that, while we are always On Call, we are not On Duty 24/7/365.God Knows we're in for the long run.  But He also Knows that humans cannot run as fast or as long as He Can.  He told us to take a rest (e.g. Exodus 20:8)So, at those times when you may think you are not doing the Lord's Work, consider that it may just be a "sabbathitcal." See More

My Primary #ReimaginePRAYER Focus

This Scripture Drives My #Reimagine Journey
Romans 14

Ezekiel 2:1-3:11
How To Begin a Reimagine Journey [My Tweet-Sized (280 characters) suggestion]
Think outside of the bricks and mortar box. The Universal church has no walls, no congregational separations.

The simple, clear message of Christ is the Giving of, and the receiving of, Grace. Use all He has placed in your trust, including human logic, to share, and not scare, people with this Good News.
WHY? is it important for the Church to #ReimaginePRAYER?
Because prayer is dialog--questions and answers.

Because prayer is for asking. Since he supplies all our needs and even some of our desires that are consistent with His Will, as often as humanly possible, our prayers should be for assignments that advance His Purpose.
