Hello world 2!

This is the first post of my new blog and it seemed a good enough title. In my work as a pastor I bear responsibility to speak to people regularly from the Bible. I believe this to be a sacred task as I strive not to speak my opinions but what I believe the Bible speaks. Not sure I always succeed, but that’s where I aim.

This is the first post of my new blog and it seemed a good enough title. In my work as a pastor I bear responsibility to speak to people regularly from the Bible. I believe this to be a sacred task as I strive not to speak my opinions but what I believe the Bible speaks. Not sure I always succeed, but that’s where I aim.

The result of this is often stifled thoughts and feelings that have nowhere to go. That’s where this blog comes in. The thoughts and opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone. I make no claim that they speak for God, although I hope they bear witness to His work in my life.

With that introduction, this post comes days away from the 2016 Presidential Election and below the picture I’ve listed a round-up of links I found worth a read:
