Home of the Second Half Quartet

The last evening of the Truthseekers Homecoming was upon us.  As people buzzed around the lobby chatting with artists and buying that box of popcorn, I couldn’t help but replay the events of the day.  The Prayer Breakfast began with some amazing biscuits and gravy provided by Stonefort Baptist. Their pastor, Jeff Owens, brought the…

Going Green…

When you go to a Gospel Sing on St. Patrick’s Day, you never know what might turn up being green.  At the Friday morning Prayer Breakfast, it was the donuts.  Yep, that’s right – green Krispy Kreme donuts!  The batter was dyed green but they tasted just the same.  There was also an assorted box…

The Cross Left A Mark On Me – Truthseekers Homecoming

When I turn the calendar over to the month of March, there is one thing I always look forward to…and it’s not the erratic Missouri weather!  It’s the Truthseekers Homecoming in Marion, Illinois!  This three day event in Southern Illinois has been a favorite of mine for six years now.  Whether Mother Nature sends us…

Mount Rainer – Washington

In 2015, I sat by the window on a flight leaving Seattle, Washington.  Below, Mount Rainer stood in all her snow-capped splendor as I snapped multiple photos on my iPhone.  Seeing it from the sky was magnificent and I never thought anything would top that experience…until I saw the mountain from the ground. “Admission to…

Ocean Shores – Washington

It may have been the middle of August, but I would have been lost without my Columbia fleece jacket as I walked the beach at Ocean Shores in Washington.  The air near the coast carried a good chill and the water coming in from the Pacific was freezing…that is, the few times I allowed it…

Oneonta Gorge and Multnomah Falls – Oregon

Those walking past us were wet…really wet.  I tugged my socks off, knowing we would be going through water.  I’d rather deal with wet creek walkers instead of wet socks and shoes.  As I leaned up against the car and observed the people walking by, our friend began laughing.  Almost hysterically.  I knew there were…

When Angels Cry – Mary Lu Tyndall

After reading this book, you may come to the end with a desire to be more like Angelica, more interested in the spiritual battle spoken of in Ephesians chapter six and you will probably dislike a guy named Thomas.  (And I mean, really, really dislike…)  But one thing you won’t dislike is the switch the…

Prague Counterpoint – Bodie Thoene

How could the world let an empire rise that would try and exterminate an entire nationality?  Then again, how could a leader who is so bent on making Aryans the most important race in the world, encourage the murder of his own people?  These two questions are extensively explored in Prague Counterpoint, the second installment…
