My Two Cents: #Gabestrong

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN “Faith and understanding rest on the hope of eternal life.  Before time began, God promised to give that life.  And he does not lie.” Titus 1.

It seemed only fitting that former Clarksville City Councilman Gabe Segovia would lose his battle to cancer on the day God chose to begin his life.  And while there are many who think that is so sad, I celebrate for Gabe.

The pain is gone.  The suffering is over.  Now, go rest my brother!

Feeling Small in the World Today?

 

Kris Wolfe“When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?

You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor.
You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
you put everything under their feet:”

~Psalm 8:3-6

Bible Reading Tips for Adult “Beginners”

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – I was late to the party. I was in my 30s before I started reading the Bible. I mean, I had touched them here and there, even opened them once or twice, and had somehow memorized the 23rd Psalm from hearing people speak it at funerals or in movies. So basically, I knew nothing.

I have been going to church weekly for about 7 years. And about three years ago, I got the calling to go to grad school to learn how to counsel people biblically. I have always been an adviser and helper. But I wanted to know how to help people in a more meaningful, less self-serving (for me and for them) way.

Christmas Bells

 

Written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Christmas PresentsI heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

The Itty Bitty Flesh Eating Sin

 

Women behind mask.

Clarksville, TN – When I started blogging about my life and “spiritual journey” a few years ago, writing came easily for me. I had just come through a huge awakening and period of major change in my life. I had come a long way in my attitudes and behavior in a short period of time, and I needed an outlet to share my recovery and new-found happiness.

As the years have gone on, I have noticed 2 things: the first is that my writing, and the topics of my blogs have matured quite a bit. The second thing I have noticed is that I write less often and struggle to refine my thoughts more. «Read the rest of this article»

 


Prove It Clarksville: Day 14: Passing the Baton

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Sunday was my last “official” day of standing. There’s so much I’ve learned from this experience that I’ll probably be writing these blogs for awhile, if that’s okay with you. After all, the journey isn’t over—it’s really just beginning.

So now I pass the baton to those of you who do care and are ready to prove it. This was never about me making a personal statement but about awakening our community and showing you that, together, we can make a difference and address poverty the right way.

Prove It Clarksville: Day 13: Peace Out, Brother

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – I have to be honest with you … I’ve had a very hard time writing a blog today. You see, while I was standing on my street corner, someone stopped to tell me that a friend of mine had been killed in a car wreck. His name was Ken Murray.

I’ve only known him for a little less than a year, but we became friends quickly. If you’ve been reading my blogs, you’ve probably seen his comments. He was one of Prove It’s most vocal supporters.

Prove It Clarksville: Day 11: Can You Believe It?

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Extra extra, read all about it!

Everybody’s talking about it: there was a couple standing in front of the mall with signs today; people were stopping to give them water, food, and even money—can you believe it? One lady even stopped to take their picture.

And then about 4:00pm this afternoon, they gathered all their stuff, put it into a black car, and drove away. But wait—that’s not all—someone also saw them at a nearby grocery store buying sushi, can you believe it?

Kroger sushi isn’t too bad in a pinch.
