I'll miss this sight

Here's my first look arriving home from work. Faith and Zeke must hear the garage door going up and they're eagerly awaiting my entry into home every day.

I'll miss this sight for a while--I'll be out of town. Please pray for us and offer help to Kristin if you're able. Thanks!

Resurrection Day (No advocate more effective)

Jesus, apprehended for payment of my debt,
strides forth from the prison of the grave
free, and conqueror of death, hell, and all opposing might.

Jesus, once man of sorrows crowned with thorns,
now, Lord of life wreathed with glory.

Once: shame, agony, and death.
Now and for forevermore: Advocate, Intercessor, and Ruler of All!

Adapted from Valley of Vision, p48

Zeke can't walk, but he can still boogey

To be honest, Zeke dances better as a baby than I ever have.

Ministry Notes -- Those who don't trust the Bible

Here are just a few comments on ministry from this week. I haven't posted much on these activities before because I wasn't sure how to write things that didn't sound self-serving. But in the spirit of David Brainerd, here's a try.

I spent several hours this week with two different men talking about the trustworthiness of the Bible. One of these men is depressed and both suffer spiritually to different degrees from a weak faith.

The man I met with who is depressed knows that the darkness in his life stems from a measure of despair over not knowing what to believe about God. He's an intelligent man but has many objections to the canonicity of the New Testament. He is trying to derive what to believe about God from creation only since he can't trust special revelation. He is in a desperate condition and the plan is for us to continue to meet together with the objective of persuading him to trust God's revealed word. I am praying for him and I'd appreciate your prayers as well.
