Bonhoeffer's Last Christmas Poem

Of course I did not do this justice. It is such a great poem.

Powers of Good (first part) Full 3:40 HERE

With every power for good to stay and guide me,
Comforted and inspired beyond all fear,
I'll live these days with you in thought beside me,
And pass, with you, into the coming year.
The old year still torments our hearts, unfasten ing;
The long days of our sorrow still endure;
Father, grant to the souls thou hast been chastening
That thou hast promised, the healing and the cure.
Should it be ours to drain the cup do grieving
Even to the dregs of pain, at thy command,
We will not falter, thankfully receiving
All that is given by thy loving hand.

(From "Bonhoeffer- Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy" Eric Metaxas)

Swords into Plowshares

I am willing to send along my book, Swords into Plowshares, to anyone willing to swear to pass it along.

Clearly there was war in scripture (from where I draw my personal morality), however, ordained by God. Ron Paul clearly demonstrates that most wars are not holy, or just, or produce anything good. Answers my questions about how atrocities like "incident on hill 192" and the "My Lai Massacre" in just Vietnam can happen. When there are no real answers for all this killing (I would turn into a monster too) the morally damaged conscience can cause a world of hurt. They aren't robots, they are men with consciences. 

I.e. Please read this book.

Here is a review.

Evil Never Rests

As one gets a clearer perspective on what and who/what the enemies are (psalms mostly mentions enemies, could be interpreted as actual people or spiritual evil) in their lives, it serves two purposes. Focus and distinction.

Focus on hope.

Distinction from the old ways that subjugate them to the whims of the evil.

All of these causes are not fulfilling any purpose if there is no focus, and are failing if they do not promote change.

Alive Inside

This....right here.

So I am tentatively planning two things to raise money to go to a worship conference next February that I have already purchased admission for. One is a series of paintings I have not decided on a theme for, and the other is a Christmas concert with a two fold purpose. I'll sing Christmas classics with a pianist (this is all tentative as I have no idea who). Funds will go to Music and Memory (links) AND fund a trip state side to attend the conference.

Walk for Freedom

A21 Campaign is walking for freedom this weekend. Find a location nearest you. I am also selling 3 paintings for $250. One is featured on Snow.
