Bad Thanksgiving Habits and How They Started

The following is the video of a skit I wrote entitled “Bad Thanksgiving Habits and How They Started.” It was performed by the drama team at Westmore COG on Sunday, Nov 20, 2015. Most Americans will probably enjoy the subtle (or not so subtle) references contained in it. If you like it, please leave a comment and pass the link on to someone else to view, too. The sequel to this skit (from 2016) is titled Mary’s First Real Thanksgiving. If your drama group is interested in performing the skit, the script and director’s copy are available (donation suggested).  Please use the contact form to request a copy. … Read entire article »

Never Trust a Rainbow on the Amazon River

Never Trust a Rainbow on the Amazon River

This article is a feeble attempt to put into words what happened on what I now call my last Sunday in Brazil, but at the time I was calling it my last Sunday.  After morning church, I had spent part of the day wandering jungle paths with my camera and my trusty native guide, Logan.  Then Phil took me and some other guests out on a beautiful excursion across half of the Amazon where I … Read entire article »

How to Take a Cold Shower: A Primer for Spoiled Americans

How to Take a Cold Shower:  A Primer for Spoiled Americans

Before the trip passes by, I felt compelled to write what I hope will be an instructive guide for American tourists traveling to Brazil.  First, you have to understand that Brazil is hot.  Yes, I know, Arizona is hot.  Florida is unbearable.  And the record for hottest temperature on earth was in Death Valley, CA.  Blah, blah, blah. Brazil is a different kind of hot.  To illustrate this, I’ve included this photo of my deodorant stick.  … Read entire article »

The Ride of My Life: Or Why My Son is Now Taller Than I Am

The Ride of My Life: Or Why My Son is Now Taller Than I Am

Today I had what can only be called “The Ride of My Life.” It started out with us leaving Paraquequara to head into town to begin the work on the phone system. We took the boat to the MAF site and then walked through the hangar to Phil’s motorcycle. While not painted on the chassis itself, I was soon to learn that this bike’s name is “Instrumento de Adrenalina.” The bike itself looked innocent enough (see photo). … Read entire article »

Windows is Ungodly and Unix is the Right Operating System

Lest I be mistaken, let me remind readers that this does fall into the “HUMOR” category, especially “Good Examples of Bad Exegesis.” But if you like this kind of stuff, read on. Someone on a list recently was writing about how God gifts people differently, including techies. They said: One of the hard lessons we learned is that God calls different people with different skills to work for Him. And He chooses the people with those skills for a purpose. The same way that He made some to be pastors, and some to be teachers, He also made some to be Windows people, and others to be Linux people (I still think the “Mac people” are a mistake… [!joking!]). I responded with this: Well put. This is, in fact, scriptural. … Read entire article »

Apple Versus Windows

Yet another good example of bad scripture interpretation.  Did you know that the Bible seems to favor Mac computers over Windows computers?  This one came by way of a friend in the UK: Some of her friends on Facebook were giving her a hard time for switching to Mac.  Here was her response: Jeremiah 9:21 warns us that “death has come through our windows” while Song of Solomon 2:5 says “refresh me with apples, for I am lovesick”. ‘Nuff said! 😛 Some more “fruit” for thought… “Like an apple tree among the trees of the woods, so is my beloved among the sons.” Song of Solomon 2:3 “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.”  Proverbs 25:11 (that almost sounds just like my new computer!)   … Read entire article »

Children and Scripture

Today, I was reading Psalm 116 to some of my children.  As is often my custom, I would read a verse and then ask a question to make sure they were listening. I got to the verse about, “You have delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.”  I asked my daughter, “What has God delivered our soul from?”    “Death.”   I asked my son what God delivered our eyes from, and he had trouble remembering that part.  While one child was “boo-hooing,” as a hint I asked my younger daughter, and she said, “Tears.”   Then I asked my son, “What did God deliver our feet from?”  He said “Falling.”  About that time my younger daughter chimed in with “Stinking!” QUESTION:  Has God delivered your feet from … Read entire article »
