Down-home Parables

And Again With The Parables

While these posts may be entertaining, they are also meant to be much more. Perhaps I should have started with the definition of parable from the start. A parable is a story that illustrates or teaches a moral or spiritual lesson or principle. It is not the same as a fable, because fables utilize plants, animals, inanimate objects, and the like as characters, but parables have human characters. A parable is a type of analogy. Read More...

Casual Is Good

After struggling most of the day in an attempt to publish the few pages I have created, my efforts were at last rewarded with success. I have determined that this page is not going to be a lot of formal teaching. I want this page to be more relaxed and casual, like two friends talking over a cup of coffee or tea. That concept is much more in keeping with the theme of down-home parables.

Please do not expect too much from me at first. I still have a plethora of pages to build and content to decide upon. For now, I will post when I can and try to make them meaningful for both our sakes.

Why Down-home Parables

Down-home Parables may seem like a strange name for a blog page, but there is a perfectly sound reason for it. Several years ago, a friend of mine overheard me speaking to someone over the phone. I was giving Scriptural counsel couched in a somewhat more modern presentation. When the phone conversation ended Bernie said to me, “That was really very good. You should write a book and call it, ‘Down-home Parables.’”

Bernie has since gone on to be with the Lord, but I have not forgotten his advice. Though I do not plan to write that book, I still give out that caliber of counsel and advice. Therefore, everything I post on this blog page will first be dedicated to Yeshua and secondly to Bernie.
