Verse and Quote of the Day

Verse of the Day:
Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love,
that we may rejoice and be glad all our days." Psalm 90:14 (ESV)

Quote of the Day:
"That was one disturbed atheist." John Ferguson, director of the St. Olaf Cantorei, regarding a composer, I believe Ralph Vaughn Williams, who had written a setting of Psalm 90 and claimed to be an atheist.

It's my prayer for myself, the guys in my LIFE Group, and I guess everybody else I know that we will find our satisfaction wholly in God, that each day we'll soak in His presence and feast on His word. I want to find the place where I live the whole day in God's presence, in coram deo, no matter where I am.

I take it from the capitalization that LIFE stands for something. What, pray tell?

Everett said...

I don't know. Our community pastor came up with the name and changed it from "housegroups" at a time when I was feeling particularly averse to acronyms. In an act of petty rebellion I never bothered to learn the acronym and don't usually spell it as an acronym. I'm not sure why I did now. Anyway according to the church website:

Loving God through prayer, worship and Bible discussions

Investing in one another by encouraging one another and helping meet needs

Fruit of the Spirit is produced as people grow in character and in spiritual gifts

Extending the Kingdom as people minister to those who do not know Jesus Christ

Jenn-Jenn, the Mother Hen said...

Speaking of extending the Kingdom - have fun with your meeting with the Mormons tonight!

But, seriously, sounds like a neat group.

I don't know why people insist on assigning acronyms to everything, anyway. I was going to be a smart aleck here and write some cutesy sentence filled with acronyms, but I'm tired and my brain hurts, so I couldn't think of any! LOL

Jenn-Jenn, the Mother Hen said...

Hmmmm........... we haven't heard anything yet about the Mormon visit. In fact, haven't heard anything period from Everett....

Do you think the Mormons kidnapped him?

Hi, Bub. Did an alien attack occur last night? Love you.

Maybe he's in hiding.

Maybe the Mormons annoyed him so badly he's decided to become a hermit.

Maybe we've pestered him so much about posting to his blog that he's renounced all ties to technology! (Oh, wait, that would be kind of hard, considering what he does for a living...)

I didn't scroll down far enough when reading your description of the acronym. I thought "Man, these people are stupid. They don't know how acronyms work." I'd only read the meaning for the letter "L". Yes, I'm stupid I don't know how computers work. HA!

Lydia said...

You people should know by now that Everett is a real problem for Mormons. He's been ministering to them since he was little--telling them the truth about Christ. I wouldn't be surprised if the ones who came to visit actually were there to take him away so that they could start making some progress in his part of the world. Everett, if your home, prove me wrong.

Maybe the Mormons stood him up, and he's so stooped in his disappointment that he's still hiding under the bedcovers.

Or perhaps, they took him, placed him in a basket on the handlebars of one of their bikes, and took off...albeit slowly.

If we see him in a short-sleeved white buttondown, we'll know our answer.

I hope they came by. Some Jehovah's Witnesses came by on Saturday while I was in bed with a fever. Tom accepted their Watchtower and they were on their way. I asked him why he didn't come and get me--the banter I could have had with them would have perked me right up! "So, have you reached 144,000 yet? What's the latest calculation on those cedar rings--I'm trying to decide whether I should pay off my credit card."
