Virtue: Moral Goodness. Moral excellence; righteousness.

"Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good."
Romans 12:9

Simplicity

Think of Frodo and the simple contentment of the Hobbits. (1)

Contentment: choosing, in faith, satisfaction with one's situation (2)

Missions: The Answer to the Worlds Problems: Jesus! We are all Missionaries!



With all the troubles in the world this year of our Lord 2016, we need to remember that the only answer is Jesus!

"And Jesus said to them, 'The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest." Luke 10:1-20

Pray that more "workers," Jesus' followers, will take up the great commission and share the hope of the good news of Jesus with a hurting world!

Favoritism: All Equal Under God. All Lives Matter. James 2:1-13



"My brothers, show no partiality [favoritism] as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory." James 2:1

Rich or poor, clean or dirty, black, white, or brown skinned, God created us all in His image!

Ephesios 2:10



Ephesios 2:10
"ipsius enim sumus factura creati in Christo Iesu in operibus bonis quae praeparavit Deus ut in illis ambulemus"

Subsidiarity: Local Government

Science: what kind? Observational, Historical, or Theoretical?



Often those that try to deny God will claim that science and faith have no place together...

However! They often aren't actually speaking of science, as in observational, scientific method type science.

They make their claims using historical or theoretical "science."

For example:

We have the law of gravity. Why, because it can be observed, tested and verified.

Magna Carta



June 15th, the anniversary of the Magna Carta (or Magna Charta) in 1215.

Yi Jin Jing


Yi Jin Jing - I Chin Ching - "Muscle Tendon Change" Qigong. Of all the fighting systems of Martial Arts that Chinese Kung Fu has, the Yi Jin Jing or I Chin Ching are my favorite. I practice Yi Jing Jing everyday! It is my #1 method of staying flexible, healthy, strong, and injury free! It's also an amazing form of relaxation and meditation. Long live Chinese hard Qigong!
