It’s All About Grace

The other day a friend responded to my post, ‘Same God, Same Commandments, But?’ with, “It’s all about grace.” And he’s right! It is all about grace. The challenge we have as Christians is that we think grace came into play only in the New Testament. However, when we look at the writings of the […]

Then God began to create. And He set up laws and systems to keep that creation going, laws like gravity and motion, the […]

Just When You Think it’s Over, Simchat Torah Arrives

Sukkot – A Weekend of Joy

Sharing the joy of dwelling in a sukkah is made sweet with the fellowship of mishpocha – family!  Saturday and Sunday evening, we had lots of fellowship with the family of God.

Rejoicing in Sukkot – Sabbath Joy

Who would have thought the joy of Sabbath could get any better?  But under a sukkah, with good friends, the joy is multiplied! Angelina and I were joined on Friday night by the Seiger family.  As previously mentioned, I asked guests to bring a decoration for the sukkah, because they are not guests but family.  […]

How to Build a Sukkah – Sukkot 2014

There is only one thing needed to build a sukkah – love!  Love for God and love for man.  It is that love that put together my first sukkah. Today’s post is more a photo journal, but since we know pictures speak volumes, I will let the photos do the talking. So let’s start at […]
