    This past week I met with some members and the pastor of a local church that had been rocked by scandal recently.
    A church employee had stolen a lot of money from them, robbing them not only of their funds, but of their trust.
    And as what often happens when a church faces a scandal, people pointed fingers and assigned blame.
    Why didn’t you know about this? How could you let this happen? You should’ve seen it coming.

    This morning as I write this I’m at home because I re-hurt my knee as I was walking out the door.
    It will be OK, but I decided to work from home today as a precaution, ice my knee, sit with it elevated, not put pressure on it.
    The ice is comforting and cool and my laptop fits perfectly on my lap.
    Thank God for small things!
    The other day my great-niece Leah, 7, sent me a text to tell me she loves me. Leah, as little as she is, has a huge heart.

  • Prayer Warriors, the world needs you

    In 2011 we returned home to Virginia Beach. The 10-hour trip became a 15-hour marathon, but, for once, I could not complain.  
    Most of the ‘delay’ was powerful God-time – we went up on the mountain to listen to God speak through his oracle.

    As the story goes, at a synagogue in Eastern Europe when the Shema (the prayer that starts out, “Hear O Israel, the Lord is one…”) was recited each week, half the congregation stood with hands raised and the other half remained seated.
    Although it might not have been a problem for this congregation, it was because each half insisted that their way was the synagogue’s tradition and, therefore, the right way.
    So, each week the standers stood and yelled at the sitters to stand up and the sitters sat and yelled at the standers to sit down.

  • The wisdom of my Father

    By Don Powell,  Gideons    

    Proverbs 1:8 states: “My son,  hear the instructions of thy Father, and forsake not kthe law of thy Mother”.

    Since my husband and I have no beach getaway plans this summer, I thought it might be fun to take Sunday mornings and visit some out-of-town churches.
    So, a few weeks ago I researched online for churches that look interesting, making a list of ones to visit.
    The challenge: finding churches we both find interesting -- we each look for different things in a church.
    Years ago, I famously (or infamously) chose a church to visit one Christmas Eve based solely on the looks of the building.
