We come and go in our everyday lives oblivious to those around us. We seldom take time to consider anything beyond the task at hand. I believe God would have us slow down and consider the lives of those around us. Life is short handle with prayer.

The Colby House - New Hampshire

This is the house my Great Great Grandfather built. It is located at the end of Colby Road in Sanbornton, NH. I took this in 1996 during my last trip back east. This photo reminds me that all of us are a product of everyone who has gone before us. A Godly heritage is to be cherished. Even when our backgrounds are less than Godly God uses our family and background as he makes us what he wants us to be. Camera was Konica FT-1.

Hyatt fountains 1 Konica FC1

Fountains are beautiful. Reminds me of when Jesus said He would give us a spring (or fountain) of water within us that springs up into everlasting life. Anyone who drinks from that fountain will never thirst again. What a thought.

family plot

family plot

I wonder what the stories are behind this family plot are. A father mother and daughter all lay here. What happened? Who was this family? Questions that we all should ask ourselves? One day we shall all go like this family. Will people remember that we lived? Will our life have made a difference? What awaits us after death? Knowing Christ makes all the difference. Christ makes living worthwhile. Christ removes the sting of death. Only in Christ can our death have meaning.

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

Lord of the Sabbath

“Then Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath." On another Sabbath he went into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was shriveled. The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal on the Sabbath. But Jesus knew what they were thinking and said to the man with the shriveled hand, "Get up and stand in front of everyone." So he got up and stood there. Then Jesus said to them, "I ask you, which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to destroy it?" He looked around at them all, and then said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He did so, and his hand was completely restored. But they were furious and began to discuss with one another what they might do to Jesus.” (Lu 6:5-11 NIVUS)

Jesus always upsets religious people. By religious I mean those who create a God in their likeness and then set up an entire moral and ethical system that conforms to the God they have created. Such were the Pharisees of Jesus day. They had turned 10 commandments into hundreds of rules. They had turned a merciful God of covenant relationship into a God of detached ceremonialism. So to the Pharisees the legalistic observance of Sabbath was more important than the health and well being of a human being. Jesus boldly confronted this false legalistic religion. He healed the man. He performed a true miracle in growing the withered hand into a full healthy hand.

The reaction was predictable. Rather than rejoicing in the restored health of the man as well as the miracle working power of God, they become furious. In their fury they begin to plot the death of Jesus. Why would they react this way? Because their god has been destroyed. They are like the prophets of Baal that were defeated by Elijah. Be very aware that you or I can become just like the Pharisees. To avoid falling into this trap of Satan, let us stay in the scriptures and see God, as He is, not how we want Him to be.

Another QL17 photo

I took this photo just after Thanksgiving during a family drive. The photo was taken at East Harvey County Lake at mid afternoon. Film was Kodak 200 print film and exposure was metered with a handheld incident meter. The more I use this camera the more I like it. Easy to use and extremely sharp lens. To think I only paid about $18 for this oldie and goodie. Remember that Christ is looking for you. May God bless.

New Church and Winter storm

Just before the end of December I accepted the pastorate of South Broadway Baptist Church in Haysville Kansas. The church is a small congregation but some great people who are anxious to do their part in building the kingdom of God. We haven't met the last two weeks however because of two winter storms that have moved through the area. I took this photo with my old but fun Canonet QL17 on Kodak 200 film during a mid week lull between the storms. God bless.

Happy New Year

It's been a while since I posted, too long in fact. Since my last entry I have been called as pastor to the South Broadway Baptist Church in Haysville Kansas. A small church that wants to make a difference for Christ. Pray for me as I pastor. With the business of the Christmas season I haven't done much photography. I must get started again. Stop back in soon to see some more pic's. May God bless and challenge you to great things for God in 2007.
