Poem: Baptism

With baptism, one identifies with The Christ,
mirroring His death, burial and resurrection;
in this symbolic gesture of Faith, one sees a
formal acknowledgment of His gift of Salvation.

This practice, instituted by John the Baptist,
teaches one to reflect on the sacred sacrifice- 
that Christ -alone- redeemed all of Humanity
and that His unequaled actions will suffice

as the second Adam, for our enduring…

Poem: Blessed Solitude

Another day has dawned
and I find myself alone-
although I’m not lonely,
I’m drawn unto His throne

by the blessed solitude
of being in His Presence.
This indescribably peace
of spiritual pleasance…

fuels my unsatisfied hunger
for only the Divine things,
that serve my earthly purpose
to honor my righteous King.

There’s no greater treasure,
than spending personal time,
ascending the spiritual climb

Poem: For My Heaviness

O Lord, I know and see that I’m powerless
to fight against circumstance’s mountain;
meet needs; anoint me with oils of gladness

mightily of Your goodness, grace and mercy.
For You alone, dominate my heart’s strings

with the knowledge of the scarlet thread,
that binds my Life’s existence to You;
enlighten my…

Poem: Walk Through The Fire

Unexpected trials experienced in Life,
reveal the paths of Faith in each day;
purification of your soul by holy fire
insures useless stubble is burned away.

When giving yourself completely to Him,
the unholiness of the World can be shed;
consume God’s Word vigorously and often,
so that Biblical ideals fill your head.

Without His Godly wisdom and knowledge,
spiritual battles are normally difficult;
learn from the former lessons of…

You may or may not agree with Mike Lipkin’s analysis of global trends in the video below but his enthusiasm is infectious.  Alright, it’s a little bit scary sometimes too but mostly his excitement itself is exciting and when you check out what he’s saying objectively a lot of it makes sense whether you like the goats and sheep thing or not. Hope that didn’t sound culturally insensitive.  Apologize if it did.  Here’s the video with Lipkin’s YouTube description below…
