We have a Bible Study on Tuesdays at 2 pm.  Our attendees are both Anglo and Hispanic, and we read and study in both languages.  Today we had a marvelous study, with discussion and study on Jesus' demand that a young man follow him instead of going to bury his father.  I ended up having to get The Interprester's Bible out to try and find out the meaning of the scripture.  It was a most enjoyable study.
Sunday, January 10th. Our worship themes for the season of Epiphany are centered about Howard Thurman's poem: The Work of Christmas.  It is included below. When the song of the angels is stilled,  when the star in the sky is gone,  when the kings and princes are home,  when the shepherds are back with their flocks,  the work of Christmas begins:  to find the lost,  to heal the broken,  to feed the hungry,  to release the prisoner,  to rebuild the nations, to bring peace among the people, to make music in the heart. - Howard Thurman  On Sunday January 17th, we will be using the scripture from John 2: 1-11, in which Jesus turns water into wine at A Wedding in Cana of Galilee.
This year I am trying to resurrect this blog.  I will be posting on it at regular intervals.  During the last of 2014 and all of 2015, I experienced a number of illnesses, one of which was life-threatening.  I am now getting back to health, and hope I will be able to produce some blogs of at least helpful thoughts.
