BABY JESUS: The Word Made Flesh

December 22, 2020 by · Comments Off on BABY JESUS: The Word Made Flesh 

Artwork by Sabine Kleftogiannis For those of us not blinded by the commercial bent of Christmas, "Jesus is the reason for the season." The birth of the Baby Jesus was the singlemost significant event of all time. To understand that you have to read The Book. By The Book, I mean The Bible...The Word of God. The Baby Jesus was far more than another child born in this world. To get a hint we read... Read more

He overcame death. We are going through a difficult time in the world today. We are reminded of the commonality of people by the way we are being affected and infected by the same disease. From China to Italy to the United States the coronavirus has been killing hundreds of people. It has brought countries to a standstill as they attempt to stop the spread of the pandemic. Scientists are working... Read more

Baby Jesus and angels by Sabine Kleftogiannis.Mature people think of Christmas as a time of giving while children contemplate it as a time of receiving. In the Bible, John 3:16 says in part, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son.." So out of love, He gave what was most precious to Him. Mankind, His children, was on the receiving end of this gift. The infant Christ-child was... Read more

COMPASSION OVER BULLETS

COMPASSION OVER BULLETS

July 19, 2019 by · Comments Off on COMPASSION OVER BULLETS 

Compassion is a healing power. Since I live in Virginia Beach the mass shooting of the twelve municipal workers in Virginia Beach by a co-worker brought the phenomenon closer to home than it has ever been before. It is one thing when an unknown assailant kills absolute strangers and another when a person who works with the victims, maybe knowing them by name pulls the trigger. We wonder what could... Read more

Bob and me on the grounds of Rainbow Ridge Publishing House. There are brothers born of the blood and brothers born of the spirit. Robert Friedman, Bob, was my brother born of the spirit. We referred to each other as "brothers from different mothers." On January 7, 2019, I received an email informing me that Bob had passed away.

The Seeds of Hatred

Comforting words. You can tell what kind of seeds were buried in the ground by what kind of crop comes up. Thoughts are seeds. You can tell the prevailing thoughts of a person by the kind of action they produce. In the last few days, we have witnessed the unmistakable crop of hatred spreading its branches across the nation. SThese acts have taken the form of murderous racism when two African-Americans,... Read more

Heather Heyer lost her life to a 20-year-old Neo-Nazi protestor. I have been to Charlottesville, Virginia many times. Each time I have been impressed by the peaceful nature of the city and the loving attitude of its citizens. I was well-received at its literary festival, welcomed at its farmer's market and shown respect by its professional community and enjoyed excellent service in its restaurants... Read more

She had a spiritual glow about her that showed in her smile.She... Read more

Except Ye Come as a Child

February 13, 2017 by · Comments Off on Except Ye Come as a Child 

It is easy to love babies. They are fresh, innocent, soft and cuddly. They have no political views, no Religion, no Philosophy. They are pure vessels of life responding naturally to the stimuli the world introduces to them. The Bible tell us that "Except ye be converted and come as little children, ye shall not enter the kingdom of heaven." From this reading, we may conclude that God, himself,... Read more
