I find this infograph extremely troubling. I also find the idea of President Obama calling for a Israeli military cease fire of anti-terror activities because of civilian deaths to be the height of hypocrisy.

Too often God is praised, but not encountered.

Memories

(via takemetomountains)

We had an amazing afternoon with the Eubanks of Free Burma Rangers (http://www.freeburmarangers.org) and good friends at our home. So blessed to be able to be a small part of God’s big work.

Fruit from my yard.

‘Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire’

(Latin, 9th Century)

——

Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire,

and lighten with celestial fire.

Thou the anointing Spirit art,

who dost thy sevenfold gifts impart.

——

Thy blessed unction from above

is comfort, life, and fire of love.

Enable with perpetual light

the dullness of our blinded sight.

——

Anoint and cheer our soiled face

with the abundance of thy grace.

Keep far from foes, give peace at home:

where thou art guide, no ill can come.

——

Teach us to know the Father, Son,

and thee, of both, to be but One,

that through the ages all along,

this may be our endless song:

——

Praise to thy eternal merit,

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

“Each of you should continue to live in whatever situation the Lord has placed you, and remain as you were when God first called you….For instance, a man who was circumcised before he became a believer should not try to reverse it.” (1 Corinthians 7:17-18)

Sometimes when I am reading the Bible, I get hung up on some verses, i’m like: “say wha?” Just what was Paul having to deal with in this church lol. Pastoral ministry is always interesting. :)

I’m playing the beta version of “DESTINY” on Xbox360 (http://www.destinythegame.com). Great game, a blend of Halo, COD, Knights of the Old Republic and Gears of War. One complaint fighting these dudes on the left feels like facing hoards of circus clowns gone rabid! It’s going to be a bad trigger for anyone clown-phobic!

Also fighting in the dark tunnels and rooms with only a rifle light and motion sensor brings back the edge of your seat butt-clenching of the first Alien movie….Ka-Ka-kreepy!

I love the StarWars like personal land speeders.

I like playing a campaign in and among other online players too. It’s cool how you can team up with strangers to bring a beat down on the villains in certain segments.

I’m looking forward to getting out of beta and seeing this game on an Xbox One, the graphics are going to be brilliant.

"Great victories and tragic endings are the common narrative of human experience. The Mars Hill storyline reminds me of Achilles in Homer’s ‘The Iliad.” A great warrior whose ego and anger are legendary. The opening lines of “The Iliad” begins with:

“The rage of Achilles — sing it now, goddess, sing through me the deadly rage that caused the Achaeans such grief and hurled down to Hades the souls of so many fighters, leaving their naked flesh to be eaten by dogs and carrion birds, as the will of Zeus was accomplished.”

image"To read well, that is, to read true books in a true spirit, is a noble exercise, and one that will task the reader more than any exercise which the customs of the day esteem. It requires a training such as the athletes underwent, the steady intention almost of the whole life to this object. Books must be read deliberately and reservedly, as they were written…No wonder Alexander carried the Iliad with him on his expeditions in a precious casket. A written word is a choicest of relics….Most men have learned to read to serve paltry convenience…but reading as a noble intellectual expertise they know little or nothing; yet this only is reading, in high sense, not that which lulls us as a luxury and suffers the nobler faculties to sleep the while, but what we have to stand on tip-toe to read and devote our most alert and wakeful hours to." -Henry David Thoreau, Walden, ‘Reading’

"I read one of two shallow books on travel in the intervals of my work, till that employment made me ashamed of myself, and I asked where it was then that I lived.” -Henry David Thoreau

Sunni Islamic terrorist org ‘Isis’, orders female genital mutilation for women in Mosul, Iraq. These militant radicals, purged Mosul of Christians by threat or fine and now subject women to a brutal act of extreme religious fundamentalism. Up to possibly 4 million women could be barbarized in this fashion. 

"If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” -Romans 12:8. 

I do believe it has now become near impossible to ‘live in peace’ with these groups. Standing by and watching this kind of horror is unjustifiable.
