    An old donkey stumbled
    and fell in a well
    He blundering about on
    four legs that swell
    All night in the well, giving
    a mournful bray
    farmer finds his trouble
    at the break of day

    A farmer being very poor,
    his situation deems
    Neither worth saving,
    donkey or well it seems
    gathers his neighbors,
    from Lo, miles around
    decides to fill the well,
    with useless ground

    The hysterical donkey,

  • Weekly Devotional

        William Willimon writes- “Unable to preach Christ and him crucified, we preach humanity and it improved. By the time most of us finish qualifying the scandal of Christian speech, very little can be said by the preacher that can’t be heard elsewhere”. I would add, most preachers don’t care if what they say can be heard elsewhere and that’s the real scandal. They are, further, quite happy to dredge foul pre-canned sermon books for ideas because their own connection to and interest in Scripture is so paltry.

  • Weekly Devotional

    Sin is like a deep well. The closer you get to the edge of it, the less firm the ground upon which you stand.  And if you dare peek over the edge and look down, you can be sure that sooner or later you’ll lose your balance and plunge to the bottom.

    Thy Will Be Done
    Oh, mighty God ‘thy will’
    be done,
    “I came to save man,’’
    cried the son
    “this mission of love,
    I now shall do”
    save brothers sisters,
    (me and you)
    From the beginning I made
    the plan
    before man’s life upon earth began
    Man created by ‘this’
    begotton son
    He gave his life, while
    living as one
    God thru creation, the giver of life

  • Weekly Devotional

        A great theologian of the Church observed “You are God’s worker.  He demands your service, not your sleep.”  In a day when many Christians believe God exists only to meet their needs, it’s important to remember that in fact we exist to serve him, not to rest until he does something for us.
