Listen for Wisdom
by Brian Nelms (from Proverbs 8)

The hour grows late.

The dark veil falls.

Silence pierces the comfort. Shall I regard the begging questions or heed the ache? Nay. Everyman - of humanity’s breath - am I, and pride is my tether. Though to what it is anchored, why inquire? Is not life about exploring the many relative possibilities to answer its riddle?

Both truth and love must be inseparable. Apart from this duality, vain utterances and deceptive expressions are communicated.

Hello, friends. It's been a long time. Far, far too long, in fact. Inexcusably long...

I have written in past blog entries about an ongoing medical condition that I have. This condition prevents me from always functioning at what most would consider a "normal" capacity. Over the past several months, this condition has been much more difficult and intense, causing me to have even less energy or focus than my usual diminished amount.

One of the many consequences of this period, as you have likely noticed if you are visiting this site, is the absence of new material for Still Ripples.

Join Greg & Brian as they reflect on Easter -- the central, key pivoting point in Christianity -- as they read through the Resurrection account in Matthew 28.

It is finished; the battle is over. The tomb is empty, and our Lord is Risen. Yes, we worship the Living God. And we are forgiven. It has been accomplished. Amen.

If the endorsement of a perceiver has become the qualifier for determining whether or not something has worth, then value and virtue, good and evil — all are subject to relative redefinition...

In Chapter 42, the conclusion of Job's story, he repents of any wrongdoing in his speaking of the Lord, and God restores Job by giving him more than he ever had before his trials began.

Greg & Brian discuss how we can learn from "the patience of Job" -- even today, thousands of years later -- when we are tested or made to suffer.

God continues speaking to Job in Chapter 41, bringing up yet another humbling example of Creation -- the Leviathan.

This is an excellent presentation by +Answers in Genesis' Dr. Jason Lisle, where he provides evidence for a Creator, but also teaches how to practice a method of apologetic debate he calls "don't answer, answer." I found this lecture to be very enlightening and encouraging, and I hope you will, as well. -- Craig

Preparing to record the final leg of our 30-month journey in The Book of Job. Which leads to the inevitable question... what do we study next? :-)
