Signs of the Times

Trump is already in full blown desecration mode.  It doesn’t seem necessary that SBC leaders encourage folk to pray for more of it…

And Now For Something Completely Different: A 14 Pound Baby…

LEXINGTON, S.C. (AP) _ A South Carolina couple is looking for some bigger baby clothes after their son was born at a whopping 14.4 pounds.

WLTX-TV reports (http://on.wltx.com/2sXwYoQ ) that Colin Austin Keisler was born by cesarean section at a hospital in Lexington. The baby is healthy, but his mother, Cindy Richmond, says they had to send her mother home for some bigger clothes because Colin couldn’t fit into any of his newborn outfits.

Colin is off to a good start if he’s destined to attain some of his father’s goals for him.

Arthur Keisler wants Colin to be a defensive lineman at Clemson University and play for the Green Bay Packers.

The Luther Storm Stone

storm stoneJuly 2, 1505: Caught in a thunderstorm in Stotternheim, Martin Luther prayed to St. Anna that if she would save him from the storm, he would become a monk. Although probably not merely an act of desperation, this event changed Martin’s life, and eventually, all of history.

Today a stone monument marks the spot where it is believed that this event took place. It reads: “Hallowed Ground – Turning point of the Reformation. In one bolt of lightening from heaven, the young Luther was shown the way.”

It’s a fun story, but like the nailing of the 95 theses on the Church Door at Wittenberg, it’s probably more fable than fact.
