    When I was little, my grandparents lived on the farm. Of the many memories I have of those times on the farm, one is very vivid. With distinct clarity, I remember when it was time to slaughter the chickens (I suppose that sounds awfully violent so if you prefer, you can use the word “euthanize” instead. If that doesn’t do it for you, I imagine there are other blogs out there to visit.).

    I know you’re probably thinking of what kind of question is that.  Am I right?

    Luke 24:44-47 - Then Jesus said to them, “These are My words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His name to all nations.”

    Up in the far north of Minnesota, “cabin fever” has kicked in.

     Do we remember the story of Adam & Eve and eating the apple? I hope so. It’s found in the beginning of the Bible in Genesis 3. There we find that Satan found a way to get Adam & Eve to turn away from God and to side with Satan instead. Satan got them to question God’s goodness and to think that God didn’t have their best in mind for them, but Satan did instead. How did Satan get there to try this deception?

    On the 25th of October 1748, the ship “Patience and Margaret” docked in Philadelphia. Onboard was Jacob Hardt, a passenger from the German region of Alsace. Exactly one week earlier, a treaty had been signed that ended the latest war between the nations of western Europe. It was also a time when William Penn had agents traveling along the Rhine River, recruiting people to immigrate to the colony called Pennsylvania. Jacob settled in northern York County, married Katherina, and farmed and raised a family. But what if Jacob had not come to America?

    Next week, our culture will celebrate romantic love – and our love for chocolate. But the Valentine’s Day tradition didn’t start out as simply a celebration of romance (or chocolate) but the celebration of Christian marriage.  Traditionally, Valentine’s Day is about how God’s love is revealed through our love for one another in marriage.

  • Are We There Yet?

    Does that question sound familiar?  Surely as parents we have heard our little ones chime up with that inquiry.  I remember when our boys were younger as we just started a trip, I would hear someone pipe and ask “are we there yet”?  I developed a standard answer “when I shut off the motor you will know we are there.” Or the other answer I would use “have I left the car”.  It seemed to work for awhile, but then would come up with different angles to ask the question.

    There is a subversive invitation to abandon idolatry, that persisent habit of misplaced trust, toward the end of Psalms. The writer sings, “I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from the mountains?  No. My strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains...God will not fall asleep...God guards you from every evil” (Psalm 121).
