good bye donald and cronies

Strange as it may be, Christmas in its own way is an everyday occurrence. Involving the natural and the supernatural. So first, here’s a taste of the natural. For Mary, and their son Jesus, Joseph plays a surrogate role as provider for his family. Family, and responsibility are aspects of Christmas to be valued. Exemplified by Joseph, and the Mary’s of our modern world. Which extends, beyond Christmas day and makes a circular journey.

The supernatural always intersects with the natural of human nature. Most are unaware of this supernatural / natural phenomenon. For the majority of families, it just happens. Probably because of a complete lack of interest because this phenomenon moves across our time line very slowly. And at the end, makes a sudden burst to complete the circle of the calendar.

With families being tossed into the madness of another Christmas season. Absent all the lessons from the natural / supernatural that should should have learned. Jesus is always hopeful, that through another cycle of the Christmas pageant, all its lessons will be learned, and then digested spiritually. Making for better people, communities, and nation.

America is going in the wrong direction. As the natural with its apparent superior digestive powers, is destroying the supernatural. Which will make for some very turbulent times for families, nation and the world community.

Blessed are those, who understand this statement. As America goes, so goes the world. That’s not just a euphemism, it’s a supernatural declaration. Rejected by more, and more people, which will only make wrong right by legislation. Making the good old days a footnote in history. The natural calls it social progress, but the supernatural calls it death.

Clergy people get sick, vacation, retire or move on. This padre duly ordained can fill that vacancy temporarily. Perhaps teach a Sunday School class. Share in an adult Bible study group. You select the topic from the galley of the usual, or travel the alleys of the unusual.

Not all readers are associated with the church, but are interested in spirituality just not the church. So select a topic from the allies of the unusual. A topic that the organized church won’t touch. Because people might learn the truth, and change themselves and their world. Good bye donald and cronies.

This Padre also has a degree in political science allowing for complete repertoire of topics that can be selected. From the corridors of the traditional arena right through to the furnace of issues seldom discussed.

Arrangements made through the Contact Us link on my Home page. Living room conversations work well, as do other forums where people can gather.

CfS is a church without walls, and therefore, without membership. That in itself is a transcendental corridor because how can non-existing structure be a church? It isn’t a play on words.

A Christmas Carol

Yesterdays discussion featuring Hannah, a 10th century B.C. prophetess gave us a complete Christmas pageantry. Summed Up with this Christmas expression. “I rejoice in Your salvation!” “And, He will give strength to His king (Jesus), and exalt the horn (strength) of His anointed.” Texts: 1 Samuel 2:1d; 10d-e.

Long after Hannah, another woman arrived with the same message. Pretty much echoing the same prophetic story as Hannah. And Mary said, “My soul  does magnify  the LORD, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. For He has regarded the low estate of His maidservant; for behold, from henceforth all nations shall call me blessed. For He has done great things; and holy is His name. And His mercy is on those, who fear Him from generation to generation.” Texts: Luke 1:46-50.

Not many associate Christmas with world affairs, but that’s what verses 51-53 are about. “For He has shown strength with His arm. He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted the lowly. He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He has sent away empty.”

Historians are still amazed, as the nations greatest generation, World War Two veterans. Overcame some seemingly insurmountable odds to turn the tide of defeat into victory. Perhaps with the Normandy invasion being the greatest from, 06 June 1944 – 01 September 1944.

Because from the cold waters, as the troops valiantly climbed treacherous mountains, as open targets from above, to send the Germans into permanent retreat.

And in the Pacific, the battle for Iwo Jima from, 19 February 1945 – 26 March 1945.

American victories occurred because of Luke 1:51-52. “He has shown strength with his arms.He has scattered the proud with the imagination of their hearts. He has put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.”

But in the end, for a spell America’s enemies might be exalted. Mary capsules it this way, “He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He has sent away empty,” Luke 1:53. America is not the humble Christ fearing, and Christ honoring of World War Two. And no doubt America will pay for dues for her treachery.

Our Christmas pageantry is really about, Luke 1:54-55, “He has helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy. As He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed forever.” And if you are Christ’s, then you are the seed of Abraham, and heir’s according to the promise,” Galatians 3:29.

Sometimes God’s wrath becomes necessary in order to appreciate His fruitful bounties. And that is part of the untold Christmas Carol.

Clergy people get sick, vacation, retire or move on. This Padre duly ordained can fill that vacancy temporarily. Or perhaps teach a Sunday school class, or an adult study group. Examining topics of your choice. Traveling into arena’s seldom  traveled. Also, living room conversations work well. Arrangements can made through the Contact Us link on my Home page.

CfS is a church without wall, and therefore without membership.

Not everyone is interested in organized religion. That is not say people aren’t interested in matters of spirituality. If you have a topic you’d like explored, that’s most likely way outside of organized churchism. Then scheduling arrangements, and location selection is the same as listed above.

Also, this Padre has a degree in political science. Available to discuss a galaxy of both traditional and non-traditional political topics. Like where does America go after trump escapes impeachment? Is an old fashion revolution a fitting response to government ineptness? After all, corporate conglomerates, and their cronies in the United States Congress govern for themselves. And, the people be dammed! What about restructuring the Supreme Court. Select your topic, and expect a heated presentation. Everything about America is structured to make life hard and difficult for working people. Enuf is Enuf!
