    Gee, Michael, thanks for doing some of the ground work on my fall preaching series. 😉

    Good stuff, Michael! Thank you. Pretty sure your exegetical skill wouldn’t have been a burden though.

    one verse in and already contrary to the cultural expectations (and entitlements?) of modern American Christians. Indeed, much to weigh, consider, and learn. BD#1–a worthy notation. I’ll be reading along & considering.

    I been trying to wrap my head around these current events.

    A sojourner… one who resides temporarily in a place. When one resides temporarily, it implies the ability to be mobile, which also implies the ability to travel lightly. Much to think about.

    sometimes the sound of crickets is all we hear because we’ve shut our mouths and sat down to think?

    chapter one… thinking
    the exiles to whom Peter addressed the letter were born again Believers out of Judaism
    the Holy Spirit had inspired prophetic teachings for them from their forefathers, i.e., there is an event coming and the ‘exiles’ had witnessed that event… but there’s more to it – it was going to impact this new sub-set of Believers and so Peter taught them and us what that “more” is

    just thinking on it out loud, back to the cricket chorus…
