St. Paul had a Scribe?


Every Sunday evening I am a part of  a Christian Net (round table) on our local repeater; it is called Ham’s for the Lamb (if you’re in the Montgomery Alabama area it happens at 19:00 Central Time on 146.84 with a tone of 123 Hz).

Last week I was asked about Romans 16:22.  Lets get into the scripture.  Let us read Romans 16:21 and 22 so we have some context.

My Time At Portia-Game Review

I want to tell you about a game I just started playing recently…what you didn’t know that your bishop enjoys video games…well you learn something new every day! 😉

It is called My Time at Portia by Team17, and I play it on the Nintendo Switch. My Switch Friend Code.  Just a reminder to folks who are here for the first time, all links open in a new window/tab depending on what browser you are using.

This game is similar in nature to Stardew Valley which is why I wanted to try it.  I think it is much better than Stardew Valley, the gameplay/storyline is a bit better, the graphics are fantastic. If you enjoyed Stardew Valley then you will definitely enjoy this game!

I highly recommend it even though Team17 is still working the bugs out it.  Yes the game has some bugs and glitches but it is a new release (at least for the Switch), and they are working on patches and updates for it, but I still enjoy it even with them.

Seventh Sunday of Easter One Body

The Seventh Sunday of Easter – One Body
Celebrant: Rt. Rev. Dr. Edward L. Tatro, Jr.

Processional Hymn: In Christ There is No East or West

Celebrant: Alleluia. Christ is risen.
The Lord is risen indeed. Alleluia.

The Celebrant says: Almighty God, unto whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of thy Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love thee, and worthily magnify thy holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Then the following may be said: Hear what our Lord Jesus Christ saith:
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.

You see the beginnings of my humble shack above.   Now on to the review.

The Heart of Dixie

We made it!

We’ve made it to Montgomery as of last week.  Alabama is the heart of Dixie and we couldn’t be more pleased to be here!  We are settling in nicely and rather quickly for the most part.

I’m still slowly getting my office/ham shack set up. We still have some adjusting to do but we are doing well.

Montgomery is the capital of Alabama and for my fellow history buffs is also the site of the first Confederate White House.
