Bear’s birthday is Friday. We are enjoying her to the hilt this week (especially) as we celebrate God’s favor in allowing us to rear her for Him.

While still aboard the Arabella, not quite yet landed to settle the Massachusetts Bay Colony, John Winthrop preached his famous message “A Model of Christian Charity.” It is most famous for the reference to “A City Upon a Hill”–a reference which Reagan used repeatedly. But it also contained one of the most beautiful sentences ever spoken in English:
We must delight in each other, make other’s conditions our own, rejoice together, mourn together, labor and suffer together, always having before our eyes our commission and community in the work, our community as members of the same body.”
This is a brilliant piece.
I’m all about doom and gloom, aren’t I?
This video is about simple math, making babies, evangelism, thankfulness for immigration from Mexico, and culture dominion. At least that’s what I got out of it…I guess.
No, the Bible isn’t about you. Watch the whole video.
This Ronald Reagan clip has been making the rounds, with good cause.
This movie was filmed on Market Street 104 years ago just before the earthquake that destroyed San Francisco. It’s a remarkable snapshot video of a time that seems so far removed from us.

Let me know that the work of prayer is to bring my will to thine, and that without this it is folly to pray; when I try to bring thy will to mine it is to command Christ, to be above Him, and wiser than He: this is my sin and pride.
Help me not only to desire small things but with holy boldness to desire great things for thy people, for myself, that they and I might live to show Thy glory.
