Jesus is our All in ALL! ~Paul Gray

The last several days we’ve been looking at different aspect of who Jesus/God is.  Just like I am a husband, father, son, friend…and many other things, God IS many things – and they are all good.  We never want to fall into the destructive religious trap of thinking “well, yes, God is good, BUT he’s also (fill in the blank with whatever lies you’ve been taught).  God is ALL good…there is nothing bad, evil, destructive, or harmful in or about Him!!!  We’ve discussed that God is Perfect Love.  Jesus Himself IS our peace.  Ephesians 2:14  Jesus Himself IS our peace! ...

What do you do when you pray? ~Paul Gray

What do you do when you pray?  When I first started my religious life, I was taught – and I embraced – the ACTS formula…and I stress FORMULA…for praying.  It was easy to remember because of the Book of ACTS in the bible. A==Adoration: Spend at least 15 minutes adoring God C==Confession: Spend at least 15 minutes confessing everything you hadn’t confessed the day before.

Drumming…and other musical endeavors help us experience God’s presence!!!

Seemed to me that drumming was the best way to get close to God. —Lionel Hampton ([1] Lionel Hampton and James Haskins, Hamp: An Autobiography (Harper Collins: 1999, ©1989), 8. I’ve found the same thing is true when I practice scales and rote exercises on my trumpet or trombone! I seem to almost immediately become aware of the constant presence of God and often hear very clearly from Him in those times. I write about that experience through the main character, Jack, In “Convertible Conversations.” ~Paul Gray Following is an article posted by Richard Rohr today on this subject! There ...
