Good Friend

My friend Ford is here from Germany and we were able to spend the afternoon and evening together. BBQ Chicken, Ice Cream Sandwiches, Good Iced Tea and nice Nuevo sunset. Thank God for friends.

Ford oversees a bookstore for a seminary in Germany and is a wealth of information. We met at Westmont College as freshman in 1977. Our conversation ranged from reminiscing, to NT Wright, to Wayne Grudem, Calvinism, Paradigm shifts, Church growth and life, to Christian Booksellers and the Evangelical Theological Society and how they handled Robert Gundry and Open Theists.

I don’t think I have ever met a more kind and considerate human being than Ford. Ford reminds me that I need to be a good human.

  1. Oh gag, Ford isn’t THAT good a person. But you do need to be a better one, at least I agree with that much. 🙂

  2. Roy, allow me to have a sappy moment…ok you helped me to get over it, but…

    You know I am right, remember how long we left that last cookie on the plate to see if he would ever take it…did you ever open the door for him??? I could go on and on.

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

Now it is a different place. I mostly write about two of my convictions: Pacifism and Racism. But I also offer resources: both digital and personal. 

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes. 

SBK Productions is your online source for Homeschooling Resources and Art History Curriculum. She also offers several unique devotionals which incorporate Art History with the Church Calendar. Check out her upcoming Christmas Devotional series which would work for individuals, families, small groups, and churches.

What is the Church?

I miss going to church on Sunday. Our church has decided to not meet during COVID-19. We are taking what we consider to be the safe, love your neighbor approach. Other churches have chosen  a middle ground approach: modified meetings in public. Others have chosen to simply meet.  Surrounding the challenges and variations  of Sunday
