    I’ll stick my neck out here with a prediction
    Sunday is Super Bowl … IMX The week following will see a lot of log jams begin to break up… in many areas, good and bad…

    Pray for Venezuela, pray for them to solve their own crisis and quickly

  2. Linnea says:

    Em…yes, praying for Venezuela.

    On another note, we have a few cranes that come to our property daily (yes, we feed them). They and our goats get along famously. Recently, a flock of guinea hens joined them and as I was watching my heart filled with joy. I love watching animals!

    My daughter, going in to work long before sunup this morning watched a deer jump out of hiding straight into her car. Now she needs a new headlight and bumper
    But, yes, watching critters go about thejir business being critters is a gift from God, i’m pretty sure. ?

  4. Gave my just turned 9 year old 3rd grader Bullfinch’s Mythology. Debating how age appropriate it is, but I let him watch MCU movies, so likely so.

    Hi, Michael,

    I was reading comments you posted about Chuck Missler and thought you were very smart. I was researching opinions on Chuck Missler, because a friend of mine keeps sending me Chuck Missler videos. At first I thought Chuck was a really good teacher, but the more I listened, the more I found how difficult it was to follow what he was saying. It’s almost frustrating. I thought it might just be me, so I tried to find opinions on him. Anyway, I just wanted to write to say thanks for providing your comments on that thread–it helped me gain more insight on Chuck.

    We had a good homily this morning about current events. Fr. G wanted to make it clear that Satan is the one who is rejoicing over the NY abortion law and that if anyone has fallen for his lies in this area, it’s not too late to repent, receive foreignness, and get right with God on this subject. He was very clear about abortion, euthanasia and homosexual perversions. Short and clear. I was glad to hear it.

  7. Michael says:


    How often does he do a homily on current events?

  8. Xenia says:

    Michael, almost never. I think he was shocked by the NY law.

  9. Michael says:

    I think we all were…

  10. Xenia says:

    In churches like the Orthodox or the Catholics, you have a lot of people who were baptized as babies and consider themselves to be proper Christians but who aren’t actually interested in living a life in Christ. Many are culturally Orthodox and have very modern ideas. They need to be reminded once in a while.

  11. Xenia says:

    IMO, all the Orthodox and Catholic politicians who support abortion should be denied Communion until they repent. Publicly repent.

  12. Xenia says:

    Fr. G said that in the fifties for Easter, the skyline of NYC was lit up with crosses. He said that when this recent Satanic law was passed, red lights were displayed on rooftops, as a celebration. He said for him, the color red symbolized the blood of unborn babies.

  13. Michael says:

    I think denying communion is appropriate in these cases.

  14. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    I am for denying communion also – actually am for taking them out back and tar and feathering them. However, none of them need fear for a place to go and be served as the ELCA, The Episcopal Church (for the most part) the PCUSA along with the UCC would not only commune them but just might in fact celebrate them.

    Apostate churches as I have listed above do great harm to the church bodies who work at being faithful.

    In the late 1950s our neighbor was an obstetrics nurse. I learned from her that it wasn’t uncommon for an obstetrician to snuff out the life of badly deformed children, telling the mother that the baby was stillborn. One doctor that i heard women rave over, she didn’t have a good word for.
    I suspect those doctors found God waiting for them on the other side and, yes, there were abortion on demand “clinics” also. My point is?
    I don’t think God will wait until eternity when a whole society condones murder of the innocents… History says otherwise…
    God removes His own and the hammer falls slowly, but sorely

  16. My mother worked as an RN in an abortion ward in the 1960s. She was a feminist, but she baptized still moving fetal tissue in the bio waste bins. I can’t personally comprehend taking part in such procedures. I know she also felt great guilt about her own abortion, which her then fiancee, a San Francisco hedonist, pressured her into doing. She went celibate after that and adopted me in ’74.

  17. Em says:

    Young people are a product of the society they live in and i think God holds society more accountable for choosing depravity than we realize… When we choose Christ all those sins are forgiven – we pass from death into life, do we not?
