I had the honor of preaching at Harbor Light Christian Center on Sunday.

Although we know some of the members already, it was great to get acquainted with the congregation. I thoroughly enjoyed the extended time of worship and prayer before the sharing of the Word.

Thank you Pastor Peter for the opportunity!

I have neither explored ancient Near Eastern sites nor the Holy Land, unless . . . you're among the segment of the American population that views a trip to places such as Branson or Pigeon Forge as a pilgrimage.

These are two scenarios about the existence of God that changed the life of C.S. Lewis (probably most known in our age as the author of the Chronicles of Narnia).

What you may not know is that C.S. Lewis was an atheist teacher at Oxford.

SCENARIO 1: Another professor friend, who was also an atheist, dropped into Lewis' office one day. He was a historian. Lewis was more in tune with ancient cultures and mythologies. The historian atheist began to tell Lewis that he had been studying the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) from a historical perspective. He proceeded to say that the Gospels are actually good history by the standards of their time. He then went on to say that he was starting to believe that something actually happened.

So two atheists at Oxford are sitting in that office, baffled by the historical strength of the Gospels, and the possibility that something may have happened.

SCENARIO 2: J.R.R. Tolkien (author of Lord of the Rings) and Lewis are friends, both teaching at Oxford, and both strolling on Addison Walk one night. Lewis is sharing some of these thoughts with J.R.R., who is a philologist (studying ancient histories and cultures, often through language studies). As an atheist, Lewis is struggling with the possibility of the existence of God and the Gospel of Christ. J.R.R. asks a question that Lewis can't explain away:

“Could it possibly be that the line of mythology and history intersect at this one point?”

Basically, did all of ancient histories and mythologies converge in the Christ event? Remember, all three of these people in these scenarios are Oxford professors, and these are their areas of expertise.

Lewis made a faith commitment that night.

I wrote on this, but you can find much more by visiting sites with Dr. Thomas Woodward (President of the C.S. Lewis Society). These scenarios are from my blog post, but I wanted to share them specifically with this group.

I know someone writing from a Christian perspective seems to be swimming upstream in this group, but I really do enjoy the banter. I'm a little busy to respond to everyone on this post, but I'd like to check back in a couple days, and see what you think.

This article was shared with me by a homeschool mom I know ;-) It's actually a pretty simple pitch about how to get started with YouTube and the benefits of a passive income.

Ideals like these may be necessary for those who need a greater focus.

What if good branding is not only the modus operandi of the marketplace, but a somewhat natural means for Christians to reach out, and possibly now a medium of creative evangelism?

JVI ministering at MT. ZION F.W.C. | Worship Service | 10.29.17

Complete Sermon & Prayers: If we're going to continue to celebrate the Reformation 500th Anniversary this year, then may it not fade. May we keep the ideals of the Magisterial Reformers in front of us as the Body of Christ.

Can we speak in the marketplace like I was asked to do in this assignment? This is part 2 of 3. Does the Holy Spirit flow in areas outside of normal church experience, like Elijah’s brook Kerith, East of Jordan (1 Kings 17)?
