Concerning Memorials

During the past few years, we as Protestant Reformed people have come face to face with the idea of memorials on two occasions.  The first occurred approximately three years ago when it was announced in our church bulletins that an offering would be taken for a memorial library, a collection of books to be housed […]

Ists And Isms

What are these? Where would they be found? The answer to these questions is simple:  they are people, people found everywhere.  By the former we refer to conformists and extremists, by the latter sectarianism and pharisaism.  Of course you could add an almost infinite number of terms to this list all of which end in […]

His Blood on Us

The frenzied mob, ferocious, fearing nought, Pressed closer, shouting for the life they sought, And raised their voices in a mighty flood: “On us and on our children be His blood.”   The scarlet stains, on that spike-studded cross Where hung the bleeding body, with each toss Of pain re-echoed that rebellious cry Until it […]
