Clovis Christian Church

One of our supporters is Clovis Christian Church. They have been sending us support checks for several months now, whih I deeply appreciate. Sunday, July 30 was the last available Sunday I had for visiting other churches, so they invited Bev and me down, and I preached. I'm really grateful for the help they give... Continue Reading →

In-Service

I had a "first" yesterday. I was invited to provide an in-service for an agency that provides home and hospice care to ill people. The audience was some of their registered nurses and nurses aides. In order to get ready for it I wrote a former hospital chaplain and asked him what the must-read books... Continue Reading →

The Yosemite Bug

At 5:00 last night I suddenly had the fear that I had misremembered the time we were supposed to meet the others. I made some quick calls, but got no one.So Bev and I left at 6:15 for a restaurant that we knew only as "The Hostel." We were told it was a really good... Continue Reading →

The HUPC Interviews

Recently a United Pentecostal Church on the southside of Chicago offered $25 to the first 75 (new) people who came to each of their two Sunday morning services. Jim Henderson at Off the Map asked me recently if I would interview the pastor at the church in regard to their "Money Sunday." I agreed to... Continue Reading →

Long day!

Today was a very long day. It began with our going to church services at 8:30 this morning with our daughter and son-in-law. We left Merced about 10:00 for Santa Rosa to visit our son and daugher-in-law. It has been about a year and a half since that group was last together. We enjoyed a... Continue Reading →

Oh, my aching bones!

We got out of the car about 11:00 AM. We returned about 6:00 PM. During that time we hiked from the Yosemite Valley floor to the top of Nevada Falls. Four of those hours we hiked straight up. Our daughter, Angela, and her husband Derrek have been visiting us from Tennessee. They really enjoyed the... Continue Reading →

Busy Day

It's 10:30 in the evening, and the last of our guests has left. It has been the sort of day that makes us feel incredibly encouraged and fulfilled. We left the house this morning at 8:00 to drive to Stockton. I have been filling in a little bit for the Central Church of Christ there,... Continue Reading →

Pancake Day

July 4 is the date of the annual Pancake Breakfast that my ol' Lodi Kiwanis Club sponsors. This year was the 37th. No one except the chairman knew I was coming. He listed me on all the assignment sheets as the "secret flipper" because I was taking my usual place behind one of the grills... Continue Reading →

Ordinary Attempts

Last week I got an invitation to moderate the Ordinary Attempts blog at Off-the-Map.org. After I got the guidelines, I decided to think about it for a few days. This morning I accepted.I really like the Off the Map folks. They are keenly evangelistic, but not in the usual way. Jim Henderson, the father of... Continue Reading →
