HUNTING DOGS ~ The season is open for some species!!! We may not agree with the practice of hunting with dogs, but we have to act appropriately when we come across one of the hounds. There will be hounds showing up everywhere. Owners will be happy to come get their dogs if you call them, the dogs will have tags. These dogs have homes, they are fed and taken care of. They can look skinny after a couple days of running lost without food. Yes, it can happen that fast. Help them get home.

Several years ago, my wife had severe abdominal pains. They became so severe, I had to take her to the emergency room for treatment. One of the nurses charged with her care, a Christian, had a Chinese tattoo on his arm. Robbie asked him what it meant. The nurse replied, "He who walks with no fear."
I noticed a cross on his neck and thought about the irony.
Fire. There are few things in the world that can captivate me like a good ole fire in the fall here in eastern North Carolina. I would even say that a cool crisp night with leaves all over the ground, a roaring fire and good friends surrounding me is a glimpse of glory.
Simply put, I love fires. I would also simply say, as the church, we should love fire.

I've been writing about issues dealing with the relationship between the local church and the communities in which they exist. This week, I want to address the issue of change. For example, since we walked the aisle of a church and talked to the preacher about asking "Jesus into our heart," got baptized, and officially became a "member" of the church, what difference has been made in us?
