How Can Homosexuality be Wrong…

I did a series 4 years ago on homosexuality.   I have changed my views on homosexuality since that time.

There is new information out and new perspectives.  I will say that my new perspective comes from reading a book called Washed and Waiting.  It tells a person’s story through discovering the homosexual orientation of a Mr. Hill.   I have not finished the book so I will not recommend it at this point.  However, it presents a view to homosexuality I have not appreciated in the past and I will say the read is very enlightening for me.

 

God Shines On…

Little White Country Church

“Who hath despised the day of small things?” Little community churches like this are the heartbeat of God. Although this little white country church only has services once per week the foundation upon which a small church like this is built is everlasting. Sun beams shine down as a blessing upon this little bethel, on a snowy winter afternoon.

God Said, “Watch This!”

Samaritan Water

Jesus was becoming popular in Judea.

He knew the Pharisees were watching Him so He left Judea.  He comes upon a well in Related imageSychar: Jacob’s well.  A woman comes and Jesus speaks to her.  “Give me a drink.” Samaritans and Jews do not interact if avoidable.  Also, man to strange woman is touchy.  But Jesus loved this woman and knew He had the best gift to offer anyone.  He knew she would be receptive!

“How is it you, a Jew, talk to a Samaritan?” Jews have no dealings with Samaritans. “If you knew the gift of God and who I am, you would ask for living water.” Read more of this post

Falafel House

I like Yassin.  He is a good refugee. I would eat his wraps if I were there.
