First Century Worship

First Century Worship

Twenty-first century worship does not look like first century worship.  C.S. Lewis said, “The perfect church service would be one we were almost unaware of; our attention would have been on God” (Letters to Malcom: Chiefly on Prayer, Glasgow: Collins & Sons, 1964, 6).  Paul told Timothy to guard the deposit of faith given (1 Tim. 6:20).

Oxford: The Fingerprint of God

The Oxford Report
 
As the oldest university in the English-speaking world, Oxford has a mystic atmosphere.  There is no clear date of a beginning, however, it existed in some form in 1096, and developed swiftly from 1167, when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris.

Tones of a Mother

The crescent moon glistened high above the Mediterranean Sea, a warship was patrolling the coastline, and within ear range I heard the tender tones of a mother telling the story of her days as a youth to her teenage daughter.  The mother ended up chatting with me explaining her conversation. 

Shoshanna: Siblings Flayed by Nazis

Rose

This is Shoshanna (Rose), 94 years old.  She shared her story with us as she showed us her number that the Nazis tattooed on her arm.

During World War II, Shoshanna, then 21 years old, was taken to the concentration camp in Auschwitz, Germany.   She ended up weighing 50 pounds.

Optimism is Not Hope!

Optimism is Not Hope!

Optimism is not hope.  Optimism is a mental positive attitude towards life in general.  Hope is more mysterious and more deep. Hope is like a tether anchored to the rock while your vessel is adrift in the sea of life.  You pull the tether until you reach the shore – it is there that you find stability, rest and peace. 

In a troubled world we struggle to find faith as though faith alone scatters the darkness.  Faith, like Holy Writ, is a lamp that guides our steps, one at a time.
