  1. Lighuis



    Lighuis
    'n Baken in die donker nag
    Flits seine skerp en sterk van krag;
    Waarskuwings teen die skuil-gevaar
    Vir iedereen wat herwaarts vaar.

    Rondgeslinger deur die weer
    En deur getye meegesleur
    Maak vaarders staat op 'n lighuis
    Om hul die regte weg te wys.

    So moet ons ook Christus verklaar
    Om die wat sterwend is te spaar;

  2. Vul ons met U Liefde



    Vul ons met U Liefde
    Mag, O Heer, ons liefde
    Toeneem en groei in U;
    Mag dit nooit lou of koud word;
    Nimmer verkluim, verflou nie.

    Blaas die vuur in ons harte
    Sodat dit warm kan gloei;
    Kap elke vruglose tak af,
    Hou and en aan met snoei.

    Ons slim argumente, debatte;
    Ons dooie woorde en werke
    Het geen Ewige waarde
    ...

  3. . . . of pledges and downpayments . . .



    Jesus has explained several things about the Kingdom of God that are apropos to our lives as saints:
    Luke 13
    18 So He was saying, “What is the kingdom of God like, and to what shall I compare it?
    19 “It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and threw into his own garden; and it grew and became a tree, and THE BIRDS OF THE AIR NESTED IN ITS BRANCHES.”
    20 And again He said, “To what shall I compare the kingdom of God?
    21 “It is like leaven

  4. Ryukyuans

    Ryukyuans are the people indigenous to the Ryukyu Islands.

    There are at least five types of Ryukyuans: Amamians, Miyakoans, Okinawans, Yaeyamans, and Yonagunians. Each have their own language.

    Ryukyuans are closely related to the Japanese, but are distinct from them. From what I've heard, many Ryukyuans are at least relatively fluent in Japanese, which is out of necessity.

    I'm wondering if the Bible has been translated into the Ryukyuan languages.

  5. Jesus is Lord...part 2

    "Abraham, Part One"

    In the last part we looked at Job and how the concept of 'mediator' was used in his story. Job wanted someone that would provide a place for him to present his case and who could 'make' God listen to Job's side of the story. In the end, Job becomes a mediator for his friends, and restores them to God's fellowship. Job offers prayer for them to be restored, and God listens to that prayer. It could be said that Job learned a new way to mediate and to trust God ...
