I'm Preaching at Jones Avenue Church of God

Pastor Ralph Shupe graciously asked me to fill his pulpit this coming Sunday, July28, at the Jones Avenue Church of God in Oak Hill, West Virginia.  I will speak on, "How to Impart Blessing" for the congregation.  God uses this topic of blessing to touch many hearts; everyone seems to appreciate it and some seem quite visibly moved by it.  Morning Worship begins at 10:45 A.M.

Bikinis, Modesty and Christian Ladies

Today on Facebook, Lisa, one of my lady friends—a highly intelligent person who holds masters degrees in psychology and education—added a video link to her timeline.  It is a 9.5 minute clip from fashion designer Jessica Rey about the surprising results of two Princeton studies concerning brain scans done on men while they viewed "scantily clad" females. Watch the short clip; you may never look at a bikini in the same way again. Also, it begs the question for a Christian lady serious about holiness, "What are the societal ramifications of being created in the likeness and image of God?"
