Odds & Ends

  • Beautiful weather here on the Oregon Coast -- sunny and clear -- but with temperatures in the mid-50s, you'll want to bring a sweatshirt when you visit.
  • I'm preaching this week on I Samuel 12, i.e. Samuel's farewell speech. And no, he's not happy with the Israelites -- not happy at all . . . which leads to the topic of how we deal with people who disappoint us. 
    • What I learned from this week's Sabbath School lesson: the easiest to make ourselves look good is to "dumb down" God's demands. I may be no good at loving my enemies, after all, but at least I don't eat cheese!
    • And I'll close with a quote from Sir Paul David Hewson: "Just because you have a past doesn't mean you can't have a future."
