Great quote that gets to the heart of the quality of human interaction.
“I often ponder over the nature of true human sincerity, true transparency… It is a rare and difficult thing; and how much it depends on the person who is listening to us! There are those who pull down the barriers and make the way smooth; there are those who force the doors and enter our territory like invaders, there are those who barricade us in, shut us in upon ourselves, dig ditches and throw up walls around us, there are those who set us out of tune and listen only to our false notes, there are those for whom we always remain as strangers, speaking an unknown tongue. And when it is our turn to listen, which of these are we exactly…?”
Isaiah 11: 9: They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
Many have tried to find solutions and means by which a peaceful existence could be realized on earth. Whether on a global or localized scale they all have failed to last. This verse tells us the reason. The reason peace will come to the earth is not for lack of law enforcement or resources, but lack of knowledge. The knowledge of the Lord, and not just a passing knowledge but a knowledge that engulfs, overwhelms all who dwell on the earth. This is where peace finds its nurture and growth.
Prayer: Lord, may my heart, my mind, my home, my relationships be so filled with the knowledge of You, that I may be considered Your Holy Mountain.

It’s long over due for me to have an official place on the web to present an organized collection of my experiences, testimonies, failures, triumphs – all to the Glory and Honor of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I pray you’ll come back often and that you’ll be blessed by the content of this website. To the members of the two church’s God has ordained and charged me to lead – it is my intention and heartfelt joy to be the conduit through which God can bring you into a saving relationship with him day by day.
But this is what the LORD says: “Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save.
