  • Grace Notes

    A number of years ago I got a phone call from a reader with a request.
    He said he was 90 years old and had outlived two wives, yet he wasn’t sure he knew what real love is and he hoped that I could explain it.
    I don’t know if he’s still one of my readers -- I haven’t heard from him since that one time. But if he is, here’s my best answer to his question:
    When I was in middle school, I loved red-haired Paul Minardi with all my 13-year-old heart. We passed notes in class and he walked me to homeroom, carrying my books.

  • Does God Bleed Blue - Big Blue?

    My whole body quivers as this Dookie, may be the only royal blue fan in the entire commonwealth, strokes these keys. If Duke/UK isn’t bad enough, living in Carolina it was Duke/UNC. Arrogant Tar Heel fans would unscripturally proclaim, “If God isn’t a Tar Heel, why is the sky Carolina Blue?” My take, it is a sense of their false hope.
    Do we put God in a box? Do we define Him by our convenience and whims? Do we see Him in our approving light while He must surely be annoyed with others?

    A few weeks ago, my pastor’s sermon made me squirm in my seat.
    We’ve been studying the Old Testament book of Exodus. That’s the book that talks about God rescuing the Israelites from their centuries of slavery in Egypt, all the plagues upon the Egyptians, how Moses parted the Red Sea and fed the Israelites with manna -- honey-tasting bread from heaven.
    At one point, Moses meets with God on Mt. Sinai where God gives him two stone tablets with his law written on them.
    God’s law is a gift to his people, my pastor said.

  • Do you understand who you are?

    Donna and I have been blessed to have our grandchildren in the house every week since they were born -- 9-plus years of blessing.
    How much can one person have or endure? We are exhausted from their stays, but the joy they bring and the changes we witness are priceless.

    BERRY COMMUNITY
    The former Berry United Methodist Church has been going through some changes and rebirth over the past few months. It has changed the name of the church to the Berry Community Church and has become a non-denominational church that is founded on the principals of the Bible.

    Last weekend I finally watched “Whiplash,” the movie with Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons.
    Miles grew up here in Citrus County, and J.K. Simmons is the bald guy in the Farmer’s Insurance commercials and used to be the psychiatrist on “Law and Order”, plus he was in a whole bunch of other stuff.
    The movie focuses on the relationship between Andrew Neiman (Teller), a student drummer at an elite Juilliard-type music school in New York City, and the studio jazz band instructor, Terence Fletcher (Simmons).

  • His Choice Made You Worthy

    “Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants” (Luke 15:18-19).
    We’ve all heard the story of the prodigal son. He convinced his dad to give him his inheritance so that he could go out into the world and make his mark.  
    He set out ready to take on whatever the world threw at him. The world with all of its seductive charms lured him into a life of recklessness and waste.
    Before long, all his money was gone.
