For February 23, 2020:
  • Mountains, Top and Bottom by Mary Austin — Presidential candidates go home changed, even if the Presidency eludes them. We can imagine that the same is true for James, John and Peter.
  • Second Thoughts: Crossing Thresholds by Chris Keating — Before ascending the mountain of God, Moses tells the elders to remain and wait — placing them in a season of transition and change.

Mark Twain once said that his pious, sainted mother never missed a Sunday’s service her whole life long, but that she never once heard a sermon against slavery. The Civil War took place not only on bloody battlefields but also from behind dueling pulpits where, with greater degrees of bravery and cowardice, God and the Bible were quoted for and against human bondage.

Bethany Peerbolte
The disciples see Jesus transfigured with Moses and Elijah, and then Jesus tells them to tell no one. I don’t think I would have been up for the task of keeping that secret. I know this because the first time I played The Green Wall a friend told me the secret and I had the hardest time not telling everyone else the answer.

Katherine Johnson’s autobiography Reaching for the Moon was published in 2019, when she was one hundred years old. It is written, according to the information on the book jacket, for readers aged 10 and up, and up is the key word. Adults will also enjoy this book that is about going up and up and up, not only into the realms of higher numbers, but also through the atmosphere into space.

For many people, testimonies in which someone relates the story of how they came to Christianity, still seem to be one of the most powerful means of hearing the Christian message. There's something about the sincerity of the person who stands to speak, which usually shines through their words. And to hear the words of someone who has had a profound religious experience can be very moving.

Mike, a member of our Good Earth Band at THE GARDEN, and a Ph.D. chemist at Eli Lilly Company, filled in for me when I was away. He decided to use some of his chemical know-how to make the point he wanted to make. Mike had three styrofoam cups and a pitcher of water. He poured water into one of the cups, and did the moving-the-cups-around-routine, asking those who were watching to keep their eye on the cup with the water in it. After he had completed his "hocus-pocus," he asked them to tell him which cup had the water.
