"Visit many books, but live in the Bible” ~ Charles Spurgeon
Yesterday we had the pleasure of hearing from Trista Eazell. In addition to being a member of Refuge, Trista is a Save the Storks Ambassador. Her mother was only 13 when Trista was born and when Trista turned 7, she learned that her birth mother was in a coma due to a heroin overdose.
Yesterday we had the pleasure of hearing from Mike Neglia - a missionary and pastor in Ireland. Having attended Bible college together, Char and Mike are dear friends. Char wrote a little bit about him so you all can know more about this person who spoke at Refuge and the work that the Lord has called him to.
As I write this, the Supreme Court has handed down what will be the “Roe v. Wade” of marriage, redefining marriage in all 50 states. This is a sober moment, and I am a conscientious dissenter from this ruling. The Court now has disregarded thousands of years of definition of the most foundational unit of society, and the cultural changes here will be broad and deep. So how should the church respond?
The Psalms by and large are brutally honest to the complexities of life. The righteous man does not always do or think the right thing. The righteous does not always win or prosper the way that he should. The wicked are not miserable, they aren’t wicked in every way, and usually do not receive their justice.
