A God without wrath brought man without sin into a kingdom without judgment through the ministrations of a Christ without a cross.

"Poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings." -Nelson Mandela

The last two decades have been the most successful in history in the fight against poverty: the share of people living in extreme poverty has been cut in half worldwide, from 43 percent in 1990 to under 20 percent today.

Lead us back, our Father, to your Torah; bring us near, our King to your service, and cause us to return in perfect repentance before you. Blessed are you, O Lord, who accepts repentance.

Great worship today at East Northport!

What a wonderful Spirit-filled experience today! From Sunday School to the Holiness, the Spirit of the Lord was moving. What great singing, powerful and poignant testimonies of how God is bringing people through some difficult situations. And the preaching….Captain Richard Sanchez spoke on Jesus’s resurrection of Lazarus. What hope we can place in Jesus to deliver from the most difficult circumstances!? @synapchat

I am sitting here working, listening to the#Verge14 livecast, and in-between, watching a candle burn. When I first lit the candle, it burned brightly, but then after a while, carbon began gathering on the tip of the wick, and flame was somewhat dulled. There was a black smoke coming from the head of the flame. So I extinguished the flame, then knocked off the carbon that had accumulated, then relit the candle. The flame again burned brightly and efficiently. Since the spirit of man is the candle of the Lord (Prov. 20:27), then just what is that carbon, that sooty residue that has built up at the end of your wick? Trimming time?  Definitely, for me.
