The Kingdom of God is Here Among Us

Apr 17, 2023

4.17.23            The Kingdom of God is Here Among Us   Jesus states clearly in Luke 17:21 that “the kingdom of God in in your midst” (NIV), is “within you”(KJV), is ”in the midst of you” (RSV), and “is already among you”(The Message). I believe that He is really saying that we are living in the […]

The Kingdom of God

May 30, 2022

  Jesus taught that the kingdom of God is “already among you”(Luke 17:21 NLT), and “within you“(Luke 17:21 KJV). On Pentecost He filled the disciples with the Holy Spirit so that whatever they said could be understood by everyone around them regardless of the language they spoke(Acts 2: 1-12). WE are called to love God […]

Recently, I wrote about Father Gregory Boyle and his two books’[1] impact on my life. This week I want to write about his talk from August of this year in Charlotte.  Father Gregory’s point in all that he said was this: to judge is the opposite of kinship.

The Two Realms We Live IN

Sep 16, 2019

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is unseen is eternal” 2 Cor 4:18       We are caught between two realms, the world/ the culture we live in, and God’s kingdom. Until the day we die, as long as we live in this […]

We Are Resurrection People

Aug 19, 2019

  When Jesus, after great agony in Gethsemane, stood up to the Temple officials, the Roman Governor, and all His accusers, faced His awful death and then rose again from the dead three days later, He set a pattern of life for us that we, His followers, still go through today. Although we may feel […]

My Answer to “There is no god!”

May 27, 2019

I get comments from time to time questioning my beliefs about God, that we can’t see Him, that He doesn’t exist. I don’t usually answer them, but I do think about what I would say to them.   I look at the universe, its beauty and its depth, its complexity and its interdependence, and I […]

We yearn. Pant. Thirst. Long. Faint. Cry out. In the Psalms in Job and in Isaiah we cry out to the Lord with desire, with aching, with hunger. “I will see him with my own eyes.” [Job 19:25-27] “My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.” [Psalm 42:1-2] “I long to dwell in your […]

Why I write this blog…

Sep 24, 2018

I thought my readers might like to know how I came to be writing this blog and the books I’ve written. So here goes. I started writing before I knew why I was writing, before I had a glimpse of the future. I am so used to just following all the suggestions that God makes […]

My Purpose in Writing This Blog

Feb 05, 2018

My purpose in life came to me in two dreams. In the first I am talking to a favorite pastor and saying that his job is to inspire the congregation, mine is to connect the dots. As I pondered this dream over a few weeks, I saw that I am to connect 21st century life […]

The Kingdom of God is Already Among You

Dec 04, 2017

Don’t wait until you die to live in the kingdom of God! Jesus spoke of the kingdom in the present tense: it “is at hand,” [Matthew 3:2 KJV] or “has come near you,” [Matthew 3:2 NIV] “is within you,” [Luke 17:21 KJV] or “is in your midst,” [Luke 17:21 NIV] or “is already among you.”[Luke […]
