God and the old green Honda

January 19, 2015

This post was written by Brenda Watson, an assistant professor at St. Augustine’s University, one of my fellow early birds at my job. One of the things I love about getting in early is that I have time to chit chat before the day gets going. When Brenda shared her story abut her car troubles, I asked her if I could use it in this blog — fortunately, she agreed. Enjoy!

Brenda WatsonGod shows Himself strong in many way great ways — small, big, even strange ways. To me, He has shown Himself strong through my car, my beautiful (to me) old 1998 Honda CRV. I loved the car, its perfect size, shape, handling capability. Sometimes I have a tough time listening when God speaks to me. Maybe that is why He chose my car. Read the rest of this entry »

Big expenses, no money — no problem

Mark and me

If I didn’t know Mark Felsher well, I would think he’s stretching the truth. But I have had extensive dealings with Mark — he has done thousands of dollars worth of repairs and renovations on my home and my mother’s home (there was the time he

Is sainthood legitimate?

July 2, 2013

pope-john-paul-IIThe Vatican has approved Pope John Paul II for sainthood, according to news reports. I have very mixed feelings about this — I believe in miracles (wouldn’t do this blog if I didn’t), but I’m not sure we should be deifying human beings. The Bible says God will give us anything we ask for in Jesus’ name, so can’t anyone perform miracles — anyone with enough faith?

The Vatican does have a high standard for miracles (e.g., healings must be “instantaneous, permanent and with no scientific explanation.”) But should human beings be allowed to determine what constitutes a miracle?

And I love how the powers-that-be in Rome have determined that it takes two miracles to become a saint — so one is not enough? If I were to raise someone from the dead, that wouldn’t impress the Vatican? I’d have to do it again?
