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).

I enjoy and appreciate the ministries of a number of well-known radio preachers including David Jeremiah, Max Lucado, Charles Swindoll, Jeff Schreve, Ravi Zacharias, Erwin Lutzer, the late Adrian Rogers and more. But, listening in my car, I seldom hear a whole sermon.

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.

When I was growing up, my parents had rules of conduct for home and outside the home, and they expected them to be obeyed.

When I was growing up, my parents had rules of conduct for home and outside the home, and they expected them to be obeyed. In fact, in those days, most parents had rules for children to follow. And if the rules were broken, of course there were natural consequences. But there were also paren…

The nerve! How dare he? Can you believe that the Governor of South Carolina actually stood by, with head reverently bowed, while a man prayed prior to news conferences relative to Hurricane Dorian? I mean, really! What was he thinking?

Most, if not all of us, tend to be “big picture” people. We focus more on the big, the extravagant, the expensive and the humongous. News coverage is much quicker and more involved for big events, crimes and tragedies. Not long ago, a well-known writer/speaker got in trouble for his correct …

If you want to stifle conversation at a lively party, bring up the subject of death. Few people like to talk about it even though it is a daily part of life. People die every day, people in our world, people in our state, people in our community, people in our family.

Hurricane Dorian is now history and we prepare for the next storm. But Dorian is still very much in the minds of many who lost loved ones, were injured, lost homes or had significant damage. Now the cleanup begins.

As I write this week’s Church Talk, Hurricane Dorian is monopolizing the news. The storm is churning across the Caribbean toward the United States and the “cone of uncertainty” has everyone from Florida to North Carolina (and maybe even farther north) concerned.

Someone I know was given the Wonder Bible. This battery-operated device reads God’s word to you; or at least it’s supposed to. This one however had a problem; something in the battery charging portion didn’t work so the device did not read to you. That Bible don’t work no more.
