99-cent Kindle Book

Ladies and gentlemen, yesterday’s post has been well-received announcing and reviewing Rev. Tyrel Bramwell new book, Come in, We’re ClosedWhat you NOW need to know is that the Kindle version is temporarily 99¢! Hop to!

Here’s an idea: get a kindle copy now, read it, and then buy paperback copies to give for Christmas. 🙂 And to your pastor.  And elders! Elder appreciation time!!!

Unsecured Porches and Extensive Picture Windows

Analogies have limited uses in theology, at least as far as I can tell. Even so, uses there are. Allow me to introduce an analogy of unsecured porches and extensive picture windows.

Letting it Ride

I’m nearing the end of my second year blogging here. It’s gone pretty well and I’m pleased with how consistently I’ve been able to post five times a week.

Now that I have resource pages up, it also means the website is helpful even apart from posts. That’s been very satisfying to me. I think because it means I spread the word about others and don’t just harp on my own words. 🙂 Suits me fine.

Anyway, I’m going to take a technology break. Probably for two weeks or so. I know plenty of others who advocate the practice but, lol, I don’t want to try it during Advent and Lent when everyone else is doing it!

1 Timothy 4:16

“Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers” (ESV). How can people complain about watching doctrine? Let’s take a deep breath and delight in it as the God-given gift it is. 🙂 Thanks, Church, and thanks be to God.
