Eulogy: my Mom and Dad

Good morning and welcome everyone to the memorial service for my Mom and Dad. I have many memories of my mother and father which expresses their character. My father is my hero. This is best exemplified by this story; we were members of a yacht club. The yacht club had a pool and cabana area […]

Idolatry of Jesus

Isaiah 44:8 (KJV) Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared [it]? ye [are] even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, [there is] no God; I know not [any]. Isaiah 43:3,10 (KJV) 3 For I [am] the LORD thy God, the Holy One […]

Who doesn’t want police around? Criminals! Who wants police protecting and obeying the constitution? Law abiding citizens. In the same vein, who does not like God […]

Easter Reflections
