A Note to My Readers -
I've decided to remove my Sunday posts from the weekly cycle. Although I hope they've been of benefit to some of you, they are necessarily secondary to my regular work of sermon preparation each week. I've found that having that extra post to write simply added to the burden of my work. For those readers who would still like access to my weekly work in Scriptural exposition, I would ask them to access the podcasts of my sermons (available through a link in the sidebar), since that remains the primary form of my Bible teaching each week.

Short Poem from My Novels

This is one of three poems that appeared as the introductions to my Hidden Kings Trilogy, representing inspired prophecies about the characters and events in the salvation-history of my fictional world.

Pathways of Mercy

Words I speak,
Words of truth,
Words of wonder for the world.
Watch the star,
Watch the end,
It comes upon us now.
The bright and fearsome circle
Of all our little lives
Will turn around again.
The Star King’s breath,
The Star King’s sword,
Will wake upon the world—
And blade for blade,
For life, for death,
For life that never ends.
Watch and wait,
And laugh with me,
When Warlent’s heirs make rise,
For the final bearer of the sword
Will be the bearer of new life.
