'Peace Activists' always seem to demonstrate where it's safe and ineffective to do so: in America. Why don't we see peace activists demonstrating in Iran, Syria, Iraq, Sudan, and North Korea; in the places in the world that really need peace activism the most?

Mid-week Advent I/St. Andrew

John 1:35-42a

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
no audio, forgot recorder

“We have found the Messiah.” You might well imagine a little excitement in Andrew’s voice as he tells his brother that they had found the Messiah. And it wasn’t that Andrew was in the process of looking—waiting, perhaps, but not looking; on the contrary, Andrew and Simon happened to be where Jesus was when Jesus was pointed out to Andrew. “The Messiah is here!” “We have found the Messiah.” Same thing.

Where'd Everything Go?

It'll be here...just wait.

Famwagner.com was lost in a server migration, so I've had to work on restoring it. Lazy ol' me hasn't been downloading the weekly backups (you know, I have been doing other things, too), so the latest I had was from late August. I can recover the entries since then, but it'll take a little more time.

Everything else around here should be working just fine, though.

All Saints' Day (observed)

Matthew 5:1-12; Revelation 7:2-17

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
