A Sound Investment Opportunity

I was talking to a friend of mine at the gym this morning. I don’t know how we got around to talking technology. I think it was my complaint that a favorite prayer walk of mine had been fitted with security cameras. Anyhow, one thing led to another and we began reflecting on the internet and the essential part it plays in our daily life. We remarked that if something ever happened to this essential infrastructure, we’d all be “hurtin’ fer certain. ” We ended our conversation reflecting on what has been called TEOTWAWKI, “the end of the world as we know it.” Continue reading A Sound Investment Opportunity

Another Blog? Maybe Not…

I’ve been thinking about starting up another blog. Believe me, I’ve been resisting. I already have responsibility for multiple sites. It’s not like I need another one to think about. Still, there is something that won’t leave me alone.

I believe in recent years, there has been a shift in the cultural climate.

There was a time when we as Jesus People felt we had the opportunity, even an obligation, to influence the direction of culture and society. We got political; we sounded the alarm and called the church to action; we urged the electorate to take back America’s Judeo-Christian heritage; we decried the downward moral slide of Western culture. We designed programs and launched campaigns.

Introduction to Daniel (Pt. 3)

As Jody hikes the Grand Canyon, Dan steps in with an overview of the roles of Priests, Prophets and Kings. Next week Jody will begin with Chapter 1 of this remarkable book.

Jody’s Grand Canyon Adventure

Now here this! Jody is heading off to join a group of  nine adventurous ladies who are going to be hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon during the first week of October. She leaves on Saturday, September 30th. The trail looks like what you see above. Do I have to say we’d really appreciate your prayers for a safe trip?  Didn’t think so. Fortunately, there’s something to look forward to. Here it is.

The intrepid band of hikers will be leaving from the North rim, and wind up at Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the canyon (14 miles) where they will spend two nights to recover and then hike out to the South rim (10 miles). That’s a round trip of about 24 miles down and then up!

Training involved Jody (aka, “Mountain Missile) dragging Dan (aka, “The Snail of the Trail”) up a few steep trails. Here’s a FaceBook link to one of those adventures.

Anyway, Jody’s been looking forward to the trip. As for Dan, he will be praying without ceasing. She’ll be out of contact while she’s on the trail. Stay tuned!

Resurrected: Our Monthly Letter

Everybody says we should do it. We should put out a monthly letter to let our friends and prayer partners know what we’re up to and, on a regular basis invite you to drop in here ‘tween2worlds to see what’s going on. If you subscribed to our newsetter, watch for it again every month. In the future, I’m going to make it as brief as possible, just including a summary of what’s going on, and links you can click if you want to know more about anything. I promise I’ll be more regular. If you want to see how I do, here is a link to subscribe.

Introduction to Daniel (Pt. 2)

Jody lays out some of the key elements of Daniel and lays the groundwork for exploring a book that has a message for the the ages, past and future.
