Looking for protection from the trials of life? Some say the armor of Ephesians 6 is sufficient. I say there’s a new and improved version to consider. I’ve been pondering it since listening to a sermon by Brad Evans, a senior pastor in Coventry CT. Preaching under the title “Know How to Stand Firm in the Evil Day” he suggests Paul had an Old Testament reference …

It was a grueling experience. At times I didn’t think I’d make it. Have you ever been there? At the start I felt the same mix of exhilaration and apprehension as when I faced expert level ski trails called Black Diamonds. 1) I can handle this adventure.  2) I hope I make it to the bottom in one piece.

I have to take a short break from the series I began on Sparrows. Hang in there with me for this glimpse. I was doing some spring cleaning yesterday. (Please don’t hate me for doing just a little bit.) I’d saved the potting of flowers for last as a sort of reward. I enjoy working with plants, perhaps because I …
