Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers. 1 Timothy 4:15-16

“You cannot expect the world to understand doctrinal differences especially in our day when the existence of true truth and absolutes are considered unthinkable even as concepts”. – Francis A Schaeffer (The Mark of a Christian)

To be an art critic, leave brains at door…
A survey of 500 arts experts, conducted in November by the sponsor of Britain’s prestigious Turner Prize, named as the most influential work of modern art (beating out two works by Picasso) Marcel Duchamp’s 1917 “Fountain,” which is merely a white porcelain urinal. (Duchamp was a central figure in the movement to present ordinary objects as art.)

Allege art
In November at the Tate Britain gallery, sculptor Antony Gormley presented “Bed,” a pile of 8,000 slices of bread arranged to resemble a large mattress but from which Gormley had first eaten an amount out of it that represented the volume of his body. Apparently Gormley did not devour the bread so much as chew it and then remove it and form different-shaped pieces, which he then dried out, chemically preserved, and displayed. The Tate Britain was so thrilled with the installation that it became the centerpiece in a room devoted to Gormley’s lifetime body of work.

Try This

  1. While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.
  2. Now, while doing this, draw the number “6” in the air with your right hand.

Your foot will change direction. I told you so …..And there’s nothing you can do about it!

Prayer Request:

  • Margi and Larry, who have significant issues of health, and for their family during this trial. (long term)
  • Tim and Debby, as Tim continues to struggle with his recovery, and for their family during this time of crisis. (long term)
  • Danny, a young man who recently made Eagle scout has stage one melanoma. Please keep him in prayer while he undergoes medical treatment (chemo/radiation). Also, please keep his family in prayer! (long term)
  • For my Mom who is suffering from a long cold and other conditions. Tax season (she is a tax-preparer) takes a lot out of her!
  • Praise! – I made the Kenya team. I will be going to Kenya this June with 10 other people for a short-term missionary trip. More information to come!
