Peace and Distraction

It is always an arresting thing to read the Bible and realize how many times the Lord promises ‘peace’ to his people. I was reminded of this again this last week as I listened to the sermon at Christ Church. David Court, preached on John 20:19-23. What was striking was David’s point that the first words Jesus says when he comes into this locked upper room is, “Peace be with you.” This is a group of his disciples. They are beleaguered, fearful, and unsure about the future. Jesus shows up and he blesses them with peace.

Keeping Busy with Nothing

I will admit that I am probably on social media too much. I have said to Taryn more than once, that I want to just cut it all off. The only reason I don't, is because of family and friends to whom I want to stay connected. Because of this, I haven't disconnected from all my different social media platforms, but I am attempting to learn how to use them better.
