Ocean House, Watch Hill, RI

I shot this image years ago on the porch of the Ocean House, a huge Victorian hotel in Watch Hill, RI. That particular Ocean House is gone now, torn down to the ground — and then completely rebuilt as though it had never disappeared! The new owner managed to reconstruct everything that had been there [Read more....]

 

The Greek noun zymē refers to leaven or sourdough, something fermented that was used in making bread. It required time to fulfill the process, so unleavened cakes were used when food was required at short notice (Genesis 18:6; 19:3; Exodus 12:8). The Israelites were forbidden to use leaven for seven days at the time of [Read more....]

 
Chaos Pens?

I am a lover of fountain pens, and recently encountered this new one in a catalog from a pen supplier. Fahrney’s is thrilled to present the Montegrappa Sylvester Stallone Chaos Limited Edition Fountain Pen, inspired and designed by filmmaker, writer, and actor Sylvester Stallone.

In view of the current political turmoil concerning the upcoming election, this old journal entry seems pertinent. I’m always amused at the hypocritical modern enlightened American who wants his political leaders to be fiscally conservative and morally liberal. Such a man cannot exist. It is actually a double mind, an attempt to adhere to two [Read more....]

 
Adventures with Minsc and Boo, Part 4

A few years ago, my buddy (whom I refer to as Minsc) and I undertook to explore the countless waterways in Rhode Island and Connecticut in a canoe named Boo. I have kept a journal of our excursions, and will occasionally post some of the highlights from it. (See “Category” menu to the right for [Read more....]

Thou hast bid me gaze upon Thee, And Thy beauty fills my soul, For, by Thy transforming power, Thou hast made me whole. CHORUS: Jesus! I am resting, resting In the joy [Read more....]

 

This bit of satire is from The Onion. It is not a real news story!! However, as dark as the humor is, I think it nicely illustrates some of the fallacies of modern thinking. Claims that the earth is going to expire if we don’t do thus-and-such, or that the human race cannot survive unless [Read more....]

 

I have vivid dreams, and I generally remember them, or at least parts, the next morning. But once in a while I’ll have a dream that literally makes me start laughing in my sleep. When this happens, I’ll turn on the light and scrawl notes of what I found so amusing, then transcribe to a [Read more....]

In Memoriam

My friend Dr. Dave Reid was suddenly taken into the arms of the Father on January 31. He taught the Bible at Emmaus Bible College for a great many years, and was affectionately known to his students as Dr. Dave or Dr. Grace (since he never gave a student a bad grade). I’d gotten to [Read more....]
