Now Reading

I am now reading ....
The Apocalypse of Ahmadinejad  by Mark Hitchock
So far I like how he uses other sources and and notes them as he writes.
Also I  find him very clear in the message he is sending in  his book  the end times are near.

Today my son told me of a kid in his school whose mom was hit  and killed the night before. Sad in deed but its his story ( or his version) that gets my attention as he told me he only liked his Mon, and i asked about the dad oh he didn't like him he said.
Where does that leave a kid with a mother gone and  father ' he doesn't like' now I didn't turn this into a sermon on loving and obeying your parents, because as quickly as he told me he moved on to something else  the new hockey cards he got.
But  this reminds me all the more  how christian kids need prayer in public school , for  they are completely surrounded by kids with unchristian world views.

This is NAAW - National Addiction Awareness Week.
I asked my bible study group if addictions were health problems or spiritual. It lead into a interesting discussion and look to the bible.
I tried to make the point that because of addictions in our neighborhood we need all the more to pray that these are broken by God's power and people come to faith in God.

I think next year if I remember this week  what a great sermon it would make for . What are you addicted to?
