The Wonderful, Glorious Jesus

Some things are not only worth reading, but worth reading aloud. I stumbled upon just such a thing a short time ago and wanted to share it with you. This beautiful bit of writing comes from a Dr. William Plumer and what was apparently his inaugural address at Western Theological Seminary. Do yourself a favor and read it—out loud, of course. (Note: I took the liberty of editing it slightly to remove or replace some antiquated words and to just otherwise smooth it out a little. ...

The Mighty Power of the Name of Jesus

There is something in the name of Jesus that is awesome and fascinating. Hence, the quiver of an intercessor cannot be complete without it. The name of Jesus is the seat of authority. St. Paul highlights the power that is intrinsically connected with this name when he says: “Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus C...

My friend David

Have you ever wondered how we make friends in life?And have you noticed most of your friends have something common with you whether its music, sports, sports teams, movies etc. But strangely I have a friend who probably had nothing common between us apart from our bald heads. But well  how common can that be? David Novick joined our team as a Scrum Master, and due to my past experiences with that particular creed of Agilists (not a Pugilist) and a whole lot of ignorance from me I never really ...

Visitation

by Bill Carroll     Have you ever needed to depend on other people?  It could be family.  It could be friends.  It might even be strangers.  But have you ever really needed to depend on other people?   What about God?  Do we rely on God?  Do we pray and seek God’s help in our lives?  Most often, God helps us through other people.   Jesus calls us to be part of a new community that follows God’s ways of love and puts them into practice.  Each of us is a means of grace for all the other people Go...

Where Is Jesus in the Old Testament? How to Find Him on Every Last Page

Ten years ago, I was leading a feedback group for young preachers. A youth pastor gave an exposition of Judges 14 for us to critique. At the very end, he spoke of “another Savior who came to deliver his people eternally.” He didn’t make anything of the point, and he didn’t mention the name “Jesus,” but he included the sentence. During the feedback session, I asked him, “Why did you include that line at the end?” In a flash, another student answered with a line I’ve never forgotten: “Because...

Sir David Attenborough Finds The Marlon Brando Of Chimpanzees In Landmark BBC Wildlife Series ‘Dynasties’

Casting for A-list stars is usually reserved for high-end premium dramas but it was also a challenge for Sir David Attenborough's latest big-budget wildlife series Dynasties. In the case of the BBC series, they were searching for the right animals to showcase in the five-part series. For the first episode, they found their own Marlon Brando, a chimpanzee called David. He is an alpha-male, the king of his patch with a slew of female admirers but also a raft of male…

Required Reading: An Artist Couple’s Hauntingly Beautiful Quarters, Courtesy of Perfect English Townhouse

To create his moody, nature-inspired paintings, David Campbell uses a witch’s cauldron of materials, including wood ash, beeswax, iron oxide, and rabbit skin glue. So it makes sense that he would care—a lot—about the surfaces in his own house. He and his wife, Anita Evagora, a hat designer-turned-ceramic artist (the two met as students at London’s Royal College of Art), live in a Victorian townhouse in York stripped down to its bare and scarred plaster walls. They moved to the northern English c...

Jane Ira Bloom: Valuing Choices Made in the Moment  

Video presentations and photography by Molly Sheridan Transcription by Julia Lu While thinking beyond musical genres is a hallmark of a great many of today’s musical creators, Jane Ira Bloom clearly maneuvers within a genre while at the same time subverting any attempt at making generalizations about her work. The primary mode of music-making she engages in is performing her own instrumental compositions on the soprano saxophone in the company of a small group of like-minded collaborative improv...

Not seeking God

I Chronicles 10:14 And inquired not of the LORD: therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse. Saul was a self-consumed, self-filled, self-directed man. He didn’t think he needed God. Saul didn’t ask God for direction or help. He lived his way. He did what he wanted to do. God took the kingdom from him and gave it to David. He did that because Saul didn’t seek Him. Have you ever considered that God wants you to want Him? Have you ever thought that He wants you to ta...

Betrayal

2 Samuel Proverbs 9   Last week Eric Trump, son of President Trump, tweeted “I truly hate disloyal people.” Of course, the internet immediately reminded him that his own father had been disloyal to each of his three wives, including Eric’s mother. We may shake our heads at such blindness and betrayal. It’s the sort of banal family drama that might make for a Lifetime Movie of the week, but when it comes to betrayal, the Trumps are really small potatoes when compared to Ahithophel. Ahithophe...

Betrayed

II Samuel 23:39 Uriah the Hittite: thirty and seven in all. Uriah is in the list of David’s mighty men. Uriah wasn’t just a man who had a beautiful wife. He was one of David’s elite. He was a confident of David. He was a mighty leader. He had proven himself loyal to David. David kills Uriah simply because his lust caused him to steal Uriah’s wife Bathsheba. This isnt just murder of a stranger that David commits but the murder of his friend. What a terrible thing for David to do. Now think and ...

Be an encourager

I Samuel 23:16 And Jonathan Saul’s son arose, and went to David into the wood, and strengthened his hand in God. David was under attack. His friend Jonathan cared about him. Jonathan sought out Saul even though it wasn’t safe. He wanted to be there for his friend. He encouraged David. He strengthened David in the Lord. He shared the truth with David so that David would stay the course and do what God wanted him to do. Jonathan’s friendship was stronger than even his familial bond. Jonathan w...

Dancing!

2 Samuel 6:1-5, 12b-19   I had the great good fortune to have been raised and educated by Southern Baptists. They taught me everything from higher maths to the importance of spending quiet time with God every day. The thing they didn’t teach me, though, is how to dance. To this day, I am not a very good dancer.   I am sure they have their reasons, though I’ve never been clear on what they are, but Baptists don’t dance. In fact, there’s a joke they tell:  Q. Why don’t Baptists have sex standing u...

A company you've probably never heard of is quietly building a fleet of self-driving semis that could revolutionize the trucking industry. And the founder says it has one big advantage over Tesla, Uber, and Waymo (TSLA)

Starsky Robotics, a San Francisco startup that makes self-driving semi-trailer trucks, says it wants to put driverless big rigs on the road this year. That'd put the startup well ahead of Tesla, which predicts its hauler — the Semi — will go into production in 2019. Starsky Robotics' CEO says, "I don't think Tesla's in the race." You've probably never heard of Starsky Robotics, a San Francisco startup that wants to put driverless semi-trailer trucks on the road later this year. The company f...

Pentecost: The Church Is Born

Pentecost is the setting of the most spectacular scene in the historical books of the New Testament. A sound came from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind. Tongues of fire appeared and rested on the disciples — but did not burn them! The men rushed into the streets and began to proclaim Jesus Christ before the multitude that had gathered in Jerusalem for the feast day. The Holy Spirit arrived in a great show of power, attended by wonders and miracles, manifest before a cast of thousands. Pente...

Sunday Scripture: Christmas Eve

“In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.   (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.)  And everyone went to their own town to register. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.   He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. ...

Baptist in the Spirit, Part 4: Old Testament Pentecostal Power?

  “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Those were the last words Jesus spoke before he was taken up into heaven, a promise of power that was fulfilled ten days later at Pentecost when the Spirit baptized the church with the promised power and its Great Commission work commenced. We focus on certain words in Acts 1:8. Power. Witnesses. The Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria,...

Why ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’s’ Larry David is like a ‘neurotic Superman’

Fans have been nagging Larry David about the return of his beloved HBO comedy “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” It’s been six years since the show finished its eighth season, and it seemed that its star and creator was through, although that was never made definitive. David – who co-created the landmark “Seinfeld” – didn’t exactly go into hiding since the last “Curb.” He wrote and starred in an offbeat movie for HBO called “Clear History,” and wrote and starred in the hugely successful Broadway play, “Fis...

Satan has direct influence

I Chronicles 21:1 And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel. I think it is easy for us to ignore Satan but we do so at our peril. He is real. He has real power. He influenced David and caused Israel and David to suffer. Satan provoked David. He motivated him. He gave him the idea. He caused David to at least think about numbering or counting Israel. David thought he thought of it but the thought came from Satan. Just like when Peter was just trying to love Jesus ...

Scripture Speaks: Where Your Treasure Is

Today, Jesus teaches about the kingdom of heaven in parables that are so clear, even the apostles understand them. Gospel (Read Mt 13:44-52) The Gospel reading gives us another cluster of parables about the kingdom of heaven, adding to an unusually high number in just one chapter.  The first two are very similar.  In one, the kingdom is compared to a “treasure buried in a field.”  The one who finds the treasure immediately recognizes its great value, so he hides it again, for safe-keeping, and...

Film Review: “Alien Covenant”

Michael Fassbender plays the androids David and Walter in “Alien: Covenant” [Note: this review contains spoilers] The “Alien” movie franchise is a lot like an ocean liner. By that I mean it’s foolish to expect a large ship like that to be nimble and change course quickly while at sea. With “Prometheus,” a more apt metaphor would be comparing the film to The Titanic — with the screenplay as the iceberg that sunk it.  It was a visually stunning picture where all the technical elements needed to ...

‘Alien: Covenant’ Prologue Reveals The Fate of the Survivors Of ‘Prometheus’

At the end of Prometheus, Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) either makes a very brave or very foolish decision. After the doctor’s search for humanity’s creators goes horribly wrong, leaving most of the Prometheus crew dead, she continues to seek answers. Based on Shaw’s lack of presence in the promotional materials for Alien: Covenant, her minimal role in the film, and the fact she’s with David (Michael Fassbender), we’re presuming her post-Prometheus mission doesn’t go so well. In a new Alien: Co...

How This Social Entrepreneur Is Building a Better Detroit By Empowering Its Students

Every kid should be allowed to grow up believing that they can be anything. Because that’s the first step to making something of yourself as an adult. But many young people are convinced early on that their dreams are too big for them—that there’s a low ceiling on their potential, that their disadvantages define them. Whether it’s because of their financial situation, a shoddy education system, or a lack of role models they can relate to, without this belief many students end up dropping out of...

Cher Horowitz reminded America in the 1990s that it doesn't say RSVP on the Statue of Liberty. Today, activists made sure that it does say "Refugees Welcome."A group calling itself Alt Lady Liberty unfurled a giant red-and-white banner reaffirming the American value of acceptance of tired, poor, huddled masses, etc.The banner was hung by four activists around 12:45 p.m. local time. The National Parks Service tore it down around three hours later, just before 4 p.m.Here's a photo.We must heed th...

The Lion, the Bear… And Your Circumstances

Standing at nearly ten-foot-tall, the man must have looked like an armored tank to young David. He wore a helmet of brass upon his head and a coat of scale armor of about 125 pounds of bronze. The bible describes the armor and war tools in details, giving us a vivid picture of Goliath’s fearsome stature and strength. David had come up from Bethlehem with the mere purpose of bringing food to his brothers, who were battling the Philistines in the valley of Elah. But as he arrived at the camp, he h...
