The Voice of One Podcast

So, apparently podcasts are a thing 😆 And not a thing I’ve ever paid attention to. But this is kinda how I roll. I’ve never been “cutting edge.” When I started blogging 14 or 15 years ago, it was mostly by accident. I created an account and blog on Blogger (thewordwasgod.blogspot.com) so I could read…

Living Types and Shadows

Considering everything the writer has said previously, it makes all the sense in the world that Hebrews 11 focuses on faith.  In chapters 9 and 10, the writer describes how Jesus made one offering for sin for all of time.  Since He bore away sin and finished the work of atonement for all time, He…

Poured Out on i-Tunes & Amazon

In December of 2020, I released a CD called, Poured Out. I mainly shared it with family, friends, and people at church. However, I wanted to make it more widely available, so I released it on i-Tunes and Amazon. It might be available on other streaming services as well. Earlier this year, I shared a…

And Death Shall Have No Dominion

Last year, I became acquainted with a poem by Dylan Thomas called, “And Death Shall Have No Dominion.” Like Thomas’s other poems, it is filled with dense and sometimes startling language. I doubt I understand it any more than I understand Thomas’s other poems. But I try 😉 The quality of Thomas’s faith also isn’t…

The Resurrection of the Dead

The Resurrection of the Dead* Sown: thrown away into the worm-infested (you ain’t nuthin’ but) dirt Corruption: third-world police, a computer with a virus, a bike chain in the rain. Dishonor: a soldier discharged, a kamikaze who lived, an effigy smoldering. Weakness: addiction’s reason, indecision’s fancy, the thread we hang by. Raised: a flower bursting…

From Death to Life

Our church has been studying the book of Revelation. Several of us are taking turns preaching sections of the book. Previously, I posted what I shared from Revelation 13 about the beast. Just over a month ago, I shared from chapter 20 of Revelation. What the Lord showed me might be a little different from…

Dream Sonnet I

Not long ago, I finished a series of sonnets. I wanted to write some poems with biblical images whose connection was inward more than outward. I hoped they would have a dream-like quality. As I started working on them, I thought it would be interesting to juxtapose the non-linear imagery with a traditional form. I…
