Surprise Surprise!

It's been a very long time since I posted two things in one day!  Or even in one week, or month!!!!  But here's one of those Thought For The Week  segments I thought I would be able to post here regularly... maybe I could get into the habit... though previous attempts have shown this to be unlikely...

Anyway, I do hope you're well, folks.  It's been a while, keep in touch and STAY PASSIONATE

Sporadic blogging... but do want to share this...

Like the concept behind this, and I like Paul Baloche's worship music very much....

A talk from this Evening....

The Ten Commandments... parts Five & Six 


 Yes, it has been a while, and I have lots of stuff I could be posting - but as I had a specific request to put the text of a talk I did this evening on line here it is.... I should say that the version I did this evening had a fair amount of improvisation around this text, particularly towards the end when my prepared notes became a bit sporadic... 


Ten of the Best –

the 10 Commandments for today 

Respect…. 

The philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein said ‘That about which you cannot speak, is that about which you must remain silent’… Time to sit down then, maybe…. 
 Nahhhhh, when has not knowing something ever been a barrier to a good sermon…. so here we are Commandments 5 & 6 (at least in the Jewish and Protestant translations of Scripture) are -
 12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you. 13 “You shall not murder
or in the King James version, which has a certain sonorous note which I always appreciate 
12Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. 13Thou shalt not kill. [more]
