Quit biting your nails, I'm here

Last night, our "lawn boy"... we'll just call him "Daniel Mathews" was mowing the lawn, and he accidentally cut the phone line. So I have been sans internet until now.
Not really his fault, as the grass was 6+ inches tall. We've been a little busy. Anyhoo.

The next Radiant recording is tentatively planned for August 5th. I will confirm that in due time.

God is speaking.... seriously. Lou used to say "When you're running with the dream team, you get in the dream stream, and you can do the Martin Luther King thing.." something like that.
Well, we just spent a weekend with the Dream Team and the prophetic-ness around here is hilarious. So God is speaking. We just have to figure out exactly what He's saying.

and with that enigma, good day.


  1. August 5th NOT this Sunday July 15th......

    Geez...I have to pull out the eraser and send corrections on all the mass emails I sent out..



  2. August 5th works out better anyway all the way around..

    I guess at 47 it takes an entire week to recoop from 5 days with Tobias the super toddler.

    I am still beat...

    Nite all

  3. Hey all - welcome back. I kinda wish I'd been in the States, maybe I could have gone to the call. I remember how much being part of the Call New England played a part in where I am now - serving God full time in a foreign country.

    It's actually now Friday the 13th here - and of course no problems. What's up with people and all that superstition anyway? Did they forget that they can serve Someone bigger??

    Have a great weekend if I don't get back on before then!

  4. Happy 13th! It's Friday - yippee!
    No superstition here.

    Where's Josh?

    I have heard that the origin of Friday the 13th dates back to the slaying of the Knights of Templar by the Catholic church. Is this true?

    I'm sure Josh would know! :-)

  5. I'm not Josh, but here's something I found online:

    No historical date has been verifiably identified as the origin of the superstition. Before the 20th century, although there is evidence that the number 13 was considered unlucky, and Friday was considered unlucky, there was no link between them. The first documented mention of a "Friday the 13th" is generally listed as occurring in the early 1900's.[1][2] [3]

    However, many popular stories exist about the origin of the concept:

    The Last Supper which is supposed by popular Christian belief to have been on Thursday, with Judas numbered among the thirteen guests (Jesus plus his 12 apostles), and that the Crucifixion of Jesus which is supposed by popular Christian belief to have occurred "Friday." However, Judas was not actually present for the latter part of the meal.

    One theory, offered in the novel Foucault's Pendulum holds that it came about not as the result of a convergence, but a catastrophe, a single historical event that happened nearly 700 years ago.

    The catastrophe was the decimation of the Knights Templar, the legendary order of "warrior monks" formed during the Christian Crusades to combat Islam. Renowned as a fighting force for 200 years, by the 1300s the order had grown so pervasive and powerful it was perceived as a political threat by kings and popes alike and brought down by a church-state conspiracy, as recounted by Katharine Kurtz in Tales of the Knights Templar (Warner Books: 1995):

    "On October 13, 1307, a day so infamous that Friday the 13th would become a synonym for ill fortune, officers of King Philip IV of France carried out mass arrests in a well-coordinated dawn raid that left several thousand Templars — knights, sergeants, priests, and serving brethren — in chains, charged with heresy, blasphemy, various obscenities, and homosexual practices. None of these charges was ever proven, even in France — and the Order was found innocent elsewhere — but in the seven years following the arrests, hundreds of Templars suffered excruciating tortures intended to force 'confessions,' and more than a hundred died under torture or were executed by burning at the stake."
