Stir It Up!

They’re the only two times this particular Greek word is found in the Bible, yet I think it applies to all of Scriptures. It’s Peter’s specific reason for writing his letters but I’d make the case that, when all is … Continue reading

Those Who Are Barely Escaping

Had to laugh at the following meme: “I never thought the comment ‘I wouldn’t touch him/her with a 6 foot pole’ would become a national policy, but here we are.” Makes me think about the number of ways our vocabulary … Continue reading
