Annual Anniversary Blogging Break

Two or three times a year we take a break from blogging. This is one of those times. But this is the most unique. And a once in a lifetime occurrence.

It is a celebration of our 50th anniversary. And it is out of the country. We are leaving this morning from Chicago, O’Hare. (Thanks to Steve Wolfgang for the park and fly service) Continue reading

Our Annual Anniversary Blogging Break

Two or three times a year we take a break from blogging. This next week is one of those times. Norma Jean and I will be celebrating our 49th wedding anniversary on August 23rd. We’ve been blessed for the past several years to take a trip during the week of our anniversary.

Typically I will post when away during meetings or some other trips. The year after I began blogging and we took our anniversary trip, Norma Jean asked, “You’re not going to do your blog on this trip are you?” Continue reading

December is here before it’s June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?” Continue reading

Post #1300. Should This Be The Last?

quitting-blogging

Good morning!

It was 56 months ago that we launched this blog, ThePreachersWord, as a means to expand our ministry. We started with no readers, no posts, and no “hits.”

Today, according to WordPress we have 3,673 followers and 156 topics categorized for easy reference. ThePreachersWord has been read in 190 countries and territories around the world! Our posts have been reblogged. Copied for bulletin articles. Used for short talks. And delivered as Lord supper devotions.

Now, we have reached another milestone. This is post #1300. So, I wonder is it time to quit. Let me share a few reasons why it makes sense to discontinue this endeavor. Continue reading

Christians. Credibility. And Social Media.

HOAX

Last Tuesday Donald Trump met with a few hundred evangelical leaders in New York City. Following the meeting, James Dobson, Focus on the Family founder, was interviewed by Pennsylvania minister Michael Anthony. During the interview Dobson said that Trump had recently come “to accept a relationship with Christ.”

Dobson was vague about the details of Trump’s supposed religious conversion. “I don’t know when it was,” said Dobson, “but it hasn’t been long.” Continue reading

Our family vacation to Indian Rocks Beach just seems like a good time to kick back, relax and enjoy the Gulf breeze,  the gorgeous sunsets and special times with our grandsons, without the daily dead line of writing. Continue reading
