Where to Start

Recently in our adult Bible study we talked about how confusing the crucifixion might be to a non- Christian. If we are honest it confuses many Christians. Why would God allow Jesus to die in such a horrible way?

What A Blessing!

It was a quiet Saturday afternoon. A lazy day if I’m being honest. There I was sitting on the couch watching a winter sports event on TV when I heard a familiar ping telling me I had a text message.

When we moved to our heavily wooded neighborhood years ago, it was common to see fake owls in yards, stuck to windows, hanging from light posts and tree limbs. We were told the fake owls helped deter the very real woodpeckers who loved all of our wood siding. Who were we to doubt? The ginormous owl seems odd, but truthfully it isn’t hurting anything. So, doing what good neighbors do, we try to ignore it. Not battle worthy.
