3/25/24       MondayMatters: Self-Reflection

3/25/24 MondayMatters: Self-Reflection Click the link above for the MondayMatters video. During Holy Week we often look at spiritual discipline and consider things we can do to deepen our walk and increase our faith. The idea of self-reflection, self-examination is often uncomfortable and certainly underused. But this week is a wonderful time to look inward, allow the… Continue Reading

3/7/24 Lent Psalm 74 

3/7/24 Lent Psalm 74 

  I was turkey hunting with a friend on my sister’s farm just outside of Ashland City, Tennessee a couple of years ago. We were dressed completely in camouflage, sitting under a tree in the gray light of early morning. I was doing my very best turkey call and a gobbler was answering back from… Continue Reading

3/5/24 Lent Psalm 72 This Concludes…

3/5/24 Lent Psalm 72  There is an interesting commentary in the last verse of Psalm 72. From here for the next 30 psalms or so, it seems the worship pastor has taken over. Asaph is attributed with most of the next 30 psalms. A few are unnamed. They even throw in a song from Moses… Continue Reading

2/28/24 Lent Psalm 66

2/28/24         Lent      Psalm 66  Okay, this may fall under the “too much information” category but, I am surprised at how noisy getting old is. It’s impossible to tie my shoes without a series of groanings. Getting out of a chair takes a couple of grunts. Every sentence is responded to by, “What?”, and has to… Continue Reading

2/27/24 Lent Psalm 65

2/27/24 Lent Psalm 65 From Mike Courtney    I was grafted into the Leviner family. My widowed Aunt Ruth married widower Uncle Marion Leviner and I somehow was adopted by the whole clan. It was nice but it wasn’t really significant until my family moved, and I found myself as a high school sophomore attending… Continue Reading

2/21//24 Lent Psalm 58

2/21/24 Lent Psalm 58  “Why do the wicked prosper?” is probably one of the most perplexing (and often asked) philosophical questions. I don’t mind so much that my life is not hunky-dory but it sure grates on me that the other guy, and I know he’s not doing right, is getting ahead. When my dad… Continue Reading

Lent 2/16/24 Psalm 52

Lent Devotion February 16, 2024 Psalm 52  Each day of Lent read through a Psalm and make it a prayer. I’ll attach a suggested list at the end of this. (It’s not too late to start.)    Larry Thompson was my 7th-grade nemesis. He was old for his age. A 7th grader with facial hair, fully… Continue Reading
