It’s really hard for me to believe this, but next month marks 50 years since my high school graduation (boy, I must have been a young graduate?)! Yet, I still remember that evening. We marched into the auditorium of Hinton High School (Hinton, W.Va.) to the tune of Pomp and Circumstance, 166…

One of our church members said that a co-worker shared with him how this “quarantine” is making us all like dogs. We roam the house all day looking for food! When we get too close to someone we’re ordered to “Stop”! And we get really excited when we get to go out for a car ride!

Remember when you first heard of COVID-19, and a couple of months ago we were beginning to hear of possible cancellations, postponements, orders to stay home, business closings and so on? Who would have thought that we’d still be where we are today, still in our homes, still seeing the news …

If you’re watching television, and probably most of us are, you’re seeing lots and lots of commercials encouraging us to be “upbeat”, to take care of ourselves and others, and each one usually ends with “We’re all in this together!”.

It was the Easter weekend. The followers of Jesus, the “church,” were “sheltered in place” in small groups behind locked doors. Each footstep outside brought renewed fear. Was it the temple guards who had arrested the Master in Gethsemane? Or was it the Roman soldiers who had crucified Him?

While I hear that the coronavirus really isn’t brand new, it (along with COVID-19) has become the most used words in 2020 thus far. It’s the lead story in every newscast and on the lips and in the minds of many.

“Pray” in its different forms are mentioned hundreds of times in the Bible. Jesus Himself mentioned it over and over. That must mean it is important.

I’ve had a life-long battle with anemia and still remember the awful taste of the iron tonic I took as a boy. The anemia made me weak, tired and at times lifeless. The tonic added some life.

“Could we with ink the ocean fill and were the skies of parchment made, were every stalk on earth a quill and every man a scribe by trade, to write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry; nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky.” (Meir Ben Isaac)

During many years of life, I’ve visited a lot of churches around America and have preached in churches in at least a dozen different states. But while too many churchgoers hop from church to church, I’ve only been a part of two churches in 67 years.

It’s me. I’m alive. Yes, I’m a day old and a couple of cells. I’m a unique human life and all my human chromosomes are present. Mommy and Daddy aren’t aware of me yet, but my creator knew me in eternity past and ordained this minute of time for me to start the unique journey He planned for me.

The EF Hutton commercial used to say “Inquiring minds want to know.” I admit to having an inquiring mind. One of my favorite Christmas songs is Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene’s “Mary, Did You Know?” in which he wondered how much Mary knew about and understood her Son.

I love Christmas music and listen to it in my car constantly. I have a lot of Christmas CDs from different artists and enjoy the different renditions of carols old and new (for you young folks, ask your parents what a CD is).

Sunday, Nov. 3, was designated as the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. I hope all churches, like thousands around the world, spent time praying for those who are being persecuted for their faith.

Socialism has been the big word in the news and politics this year and those espousing the concept of making America a socialist nation have gone so far as to posit that God is a socialist and that the Bible endorses socialism. Nothing could be further from the truth.
