“Me and the man upstairs have an understanding.”

Did you ever hear something like that from someone who suggests they have an exemption from faith, the Bible, and any religious expectations?

We are called into a personal relationship with God, but it is God who sets the parameters and boundaries in that relationship, including how we are to address God.

The toy “Etch A Sketch” is sixty years old in 2020. Wow! That’s hard to believe, isn’t it? I remember playing with an Etch A Sketch as kid. It had a red border surrounding the screen and two knobs which you could move to cause the sketch to be made. There is an Etch A Sketch website that celebrates this iconic toy’s birthday and has pictures of some amazing sketches.

Listen to another parable: There was a landowner who planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a winepress in it and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and moved to another place. When the harvest time approached, he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his fruit. (vv. 33-34)

Praxis the colourful pixie was up to mischief. Praxis was a very rare pixie whose skin changed colour according to his mood, and just now he was bright purple with excitement. Mr Grump the goblin teacher had been called away by an urgent message, leaving the pixies to get on with learning their spellings.

Grace loves to garden and she tends her garden carefully. She lives in a town of two million, in a quiet neighborhood in a three--bedroom house with a nice backyard. She is happy where she is.

The environment is very important to Grace, who is a retired geography teacher. Her husband is in the Alzheimer's unit at a nearby hospital, and Grace uses her time to garden as her meditation time. She has lived a good life, and she is thankful for every thing and every day she gets. She is grateful for her life of 81 years.
