Surprised

October 29, 2007

We went to the Dublin Village Apartments yesterday afternoon. The people were very attentive: they appeared to enjoy the hymns we sang with them, they listened to the scripture and the message, and they seemed to look forward to our coming back. I wasn’t really surprised at their reactions to us. What I was surprised at was my reaction to them. We have done this kind of thing before, although it was over 20 years ago, and I always felt a bit uncomfortable. Maybe this time it was that they were more attentive than I remembered. Maybe I have learned more compassion over the years. Or maybe it’s because I am closer to them in age. Whatever the reason, I am looking forward to going back next month, Lord willing.

Welcome to Apokalupto

October 25, 2007

Apokalupto is Greek for, “to reveal.”  This will be our blog, at Connections Presbyterian, and those who join in from cyber-elsewhere, to discuss topics we have on our mind.  It will be a place where you can add comments about the Sermon, our offline discussions,  direct Bible questions, etc.  In short, it will “reveal” more of what we want and need to know about God and His world.

The only ground rule is: don’t be shy.  Oh, you can choose a nickname to preserve some shyness, but feel free to ask, comment or whatever.  Don’t shy away from commenting on what I or anyone else says.  The only final authority is God, and that’s that.
