I have had lots to wrestle with in my time in the bible, being that He is a big God. I am glad that His reach is greater than mine. Here is the latest "pin." They were completely amazed, for they had not understood about the loaves; their hearts were hardened.

Paper Brain

Last Monday I lost my brain. I kept it in a little black notebook with an elastic band closure. Now it is gone. I found a second one to replace the first, but it isn't the same. If you happen to find a lonly little book on the ground somewhere in the greater Tacoma area, treat it nice and return it to it's home.

To Quote and to Think

The central problem of our age is not liberalism or modernism, nor the old Roman Catholicism or the new Roman Catholicism, nor the monolithic consensus which surrounds us. All these are dangerous but not the primary threat. The real problem is this: the church of the Lord Jesus Christ, individually or corporately, tending to do the Lord's work in the power of the flesh ranter than of the Spirit. The central problem is always in the midst of the people of God, not in the circumstances surrounding them.

"Utopianism is terribly cruel because it expects the impossible from people. These expectations are not based on reality. They stand in opposition to the genuine human possibilities affored by the realism of the Scriptures."
-Francis Schaeffer in No Little People.
