Sunshine Mountain

When I was a child, I learned to sing “Climb, Climb Up Sunshine Mountain”. The music and words made me feel happy and free. I heard it on You Tube yesterday and it still made me feel happy and free. I hope it makes you feel the same way. Happy Sunday.

1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. (But not all of them, obviously.)




Interesting People and/or Good Music

Let me introduce you to some interesting people I found in cyberspace after being told about them by others. Some of them have written many books, some of them lecture on You Tube, and some of them debate Stephen Hawking. If you haven’t heard of them perhaps these brief intros from the Internet will spark an interest in their teachings. As you can see, everything is at your discretion, even the music at the end.

Hugh Norman Ross (born July 24, 1945) is a Canadian astrophysicist, Christian apologist, and old Earth creationist.

Ross obtained his Ph.D. in astrophysics from the University of Toronto[1][2][3] and his B.Sc. degree in physics from the University of British Columbia.[4] He is known for establishing his own ministry in 1986, called Reasons to Believe that promotes progressive and day-age forms of old Earth creationism. Ross accepts the scientific age of the earth and the scientific age of the universe, however he rejects unguided evolution andabiogenesis as explanations for the history and origin of life.[5][6][7]

Robert J. Spitzer, S.J., (born May 16, 1952) is a Jesuit priest, philosopher, educator, author, speaker, and retired President of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington. Many of Fr. Spitzer’s lectures can be found on You Tube 16, 2011 This video is one I made from an MP3 download of Ravi Zacharias‘ talk called ” Ravi Answers Atheists”. He’s got his own channel at … the extraordinary life of Stephen Hawking on Learn more about his groundbreaking work and the effects of his affliction with ALS.

However, if these interesting people don’t interest you there is always good music.


A Critique of Sorts

When day twelve of this twenty day inspiration assignment arrived with its challenge to critique any piece of work, I wondered what on earth I was going to write about; and then on Sunday, a member of our church choir sang a solo. I’m not going to critique him, but the hymn, although I was quite moved by Ed’s beautiful rendition of “Because He Lives”.

It is another one of those hymns whose words implant themselves into our psyche (if we are so inclined) and are there to inspire, uplift, encourage, and increase our awareness of just how much it means to have the most famous man who ever lived, live today in the hearts and minds of those who answered His call. The song was written by Bill and Gloria Gaither. I hope this hymn does for many what it has done for me over the years…let me face many uncertain tomorrows because He lives.
