Revelation

How can men doubt when seasons move In perfect continuity, When sun and stars and tides but prove God’s constant harmony? Who else could build the mountains high And stoop to make a flower,  Then set the planets in the sky With such majestic power? Who else, before man’s need arose, Could fill the mines […]

October

There have been other autumns ere this one Came with its fragrant, spicy breath To claim its mystic power over human hearts; And yet, its beauty trembles in the throes of death. I have seen fleecy clouds before in rare blue skies, With sloping hillside decked with sumac, gaudy red… While foremost preened the maples, […]

Through the gift most precious, […]

An Autumn Sketch

Tonight the rain comes pattering on my roof, It taps as would a prancing horse’s hoof. All day the leaden sky foreboded rain, The thirsty earth had waited long in vain. The bronzed leaves strewn thickly everywhere Are now a sodden mass, with trees left bare. How drearily the autumn trudges on, The days are somber, grey, […]

God’s Word – What’s It Saying?

What’s happening in the CRC—is anyone aware? Or maybe, we’ve been lulled to sleep—does anyone care? Whatever the case, lack of concern, thought or feeling, It’s not only our church, but God’s Word, with which we are dealing.   So much controversy over what used to be so clear, About how we interpret the Bible, […]
