    Elder, David Kenser, shares a daily reflection and devotion!   In the Old Testament, under the Mosaical Dispensation,  the Israelites practiced the Levitical system of sacrifices wherein they would offer up bulls and goats and sheep.  They began to believe that God desired and even needed on some level those...

  • Time to Shine

    June 27, 2016

    Elder, David Kenser, shares a daily reflection and devotion.   I’ve read that “He who burns the candle at both ends is not as bright as he thinks he is.”  Ouch!  I resemble that statement as an elder with a full-time plus job of hospice chaplain/veteran service coordinator.  My time...

  • Truth

    June 23, 2016

    Elder, David Kenser, shares a daily reflection and devotion.   Years ago, in California, I knew a preacher who left his wife of 25 years to hook up with a 25 year-old.  His defense for his decision was, “God jut wants me to be happy.”  Really?  Is that indeed what...

  • Hidden Things

    June 22, 2016

    Elder, David Kenser, shares a daily devotion and reflection.   I’ve heard people say that they are glad they made the mistakes before the Internet Era, which perhaps begs for a new age designation B.I.E (before Internet Era).  And, it is certainly true that mistakes being made today and posted...

  • The Living Dead

    June 6, 2016

    Elder, David Kenser, gives a daily reflection and devotion.   One of the major themes these days from Hollywood to Cyberspace is the Zombie Apocalypse.  America is going through a bit of an obsession with the walking dead.  It has led to a resurgence of the old Hollywood “B” movies,...

  • Peacemaker

    June 3, 2016

    Elder David Kenser, shares a daily devotion and reflection. Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God” (Matt 5:9).  And the apostle Paul insists this is part of the Christian DNA in saying, “We are called to live in peace” (1 Cor 7:15).  Even...

  • A New Command

    June 2, 2016
