In Uithuizermeeden

In the Northern part of the Dutch province of Groningen you find a village with the name Uithuizermeeden, close to the coast of the “Waddenzee” (where the Frisian Islands are). This place is never in the news. The Church with Manse is of the Liberated Reformed Churches of The Netherlands. There are about 800 members; […]

Me a Theologian?

When we hear the word “theologian,” a certain picture is conjured up in our minds. A grim-faced man is sitting over a desk with heaps of books piled around him. The man has one hand holding up his head and is trying to write with the other. Perhaps he is an elder of some sort […]

I cannot help but think: how few people will today meditate like the saint in this psalm. Today there is a very different tenor in the meditations of those […]

Pleasure?

Come with me, let’s drink and dance and play; Life is so short; take pleasure while you may. We pass this way but once, you know; Let’s live it up before we go.   Hey, what is that which I just said? “Before we go.” Go where? To realms of dead? I do not want […]

The Lull Before the Storm

The lull. Lightning flickers in the distance. Thunder rumbles softly. As the towering wall of dark clouds draw near, an eerie light and strange silence settles across the land. The birds stop singing and scurry for shelter. The sky grows darker and comes swiftly like the gaping mouth of a fish ready to swallow down […]

What Is Just (3)

“Philip, Philip, come quick!” Josh whispered back to me as I scrambled up the slope. “Hurry!” Looking through the trees on top of the hill, I saw why Josh was so excited. We had been hiking on the nature trail all morning and so far had seen only squirrels and sparrows. But now, below us […]
