Don’t Tell The Rabbi
Book I
THREE FRIENDS AND AN OLD LADY

“SO, WHAT YOU’VE GOT IS ME, BABY. JUST ME TO TELL YOU what happened inImage Beulah, SC, the year the rabbi found out. But before I get into all that, I should tell you who you’re lookin’ at. I’m not very big for a pastor’s wife and I have red hair. The church won’t let me do anything—it’s Baptist—so I mainly get into trouble and try not to. When I say “red,” that’s a euphemism. My hair looks more like some random October maple—and I don’t allow ‘ginger’ …” And so it begins. A wild and inspirational romp in the small town South. An inside look at the relationship (with commentary) between a rabbi, a minister, and an English professor … and what the rabbi discovers long after the whole town is buzzing. If this was a stage play (and it should be) it would be a Tony Award contender! Join the rabbi and friends on this hilarious, inspirational, revealing ride of spiritual enlightenment. Don’t Tell the Rabbi is a book you’ll want to share with friends. (click here to sample this book)

Level Paths

~a two minute read I've just gone back to a couple of movies from several years ago. This time they were even better, I picked up on a few things I'd missed. One was this: The movies were done by Level Path Productions. I like credits and notice details--the logo of...

Dark to Light

literal and figurative In the Bible, darkness and light are used both literally and figuratively, marking high points of Scripture. A deep darkness becomes the ninth plague (Ex 10: 20ff.) when Pharaoh continues to block Moses’ demand that he let Israel go: “Then the...

Again, Why Was It Written?

I’m looking again at the fact of texts in writing and thinking about some comments by those who wrote them. If someone hadn’t written down these things, there’s a lot we wouldn’t know! The same is true in our lives. Stories are passed down verbally from one generation...

Compassion and Mercy

Thinking since Sunday school about the Good Samaritan story from Luke 10, I’ve been reminded that compassion is a central focus of the biblical record. A lawyer asks Jesus, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus tells a story about a Samaritan, a person from...

Together

I watched a video of Handel’s Messiah--orchestra and soloists, several hundred members of the chorus, more in the audience. An Easter experience like that could inspire any number of observations. I’ve sung in one of these choirs and attended many Messiah...

An Approach to Easter

Is there a better approach to Easter than taking some time to meditate on Jesus Christ? If that “some time” turns out to be a lifetime, even then we won’t do justice to the topic or the person. That the Most High should become human is, to begin with, a staggering...

Still Thinking about Absolutes

black and white? The subject of absolutes is as big as the concept. It is complex and rarely a part of our national conversation these days. We assume that the relative rules, it is reality, it can't be questioned. But I keep thinking about things like the direction...

More absolutes?

A good question . . . another one, and one more What's real, what isn't? Another question--How fixed is reality? One more: Truth and reality . . . is there a connection? This too: How absolute is reality? Think about the following. Have you ever heard anyone say...

Absolutes

. . . quite a few absolutes Last week I made what may seem a bold statement. I said that absolutes are all around us. I called the absolutes our “context.” Perhaps you wrote that off as old-school nonsense, knowing for sure that absolutes are passé, out of date. No...

When the Adversary is a King

about a four-minute read the most formidable As human adversaries go, kings who oppose God’s word may be the most formidable. Godless captains of industry, impious world leaders or prime influencers, universally recognized authorities who set themselves against the...

Writing

Hello Hello, this is for my correspondent who asked the question about getting started--that is, how do I start when writing this blog. I've inadvertently deleted your question. I read it and looked forward to making a response and now it's gone. Sorry, I hit the...
