Is the Market Getting Better? - 04/28/12 10:27 AM
I ran into Frank Christophel, Executive VP of our local real estate board the other week. I asked him how long he had been the exec. veep at LCAR. "37 years." he said. I asked him if in those 37 years had he ever witnessed a market anything like this? He said, "Not even close, not even the 20% interest days and I've never seen less of a reason for it either." Fear has gripped our nation and it has to be confronted before real change will take place. It's all a big analysis paralysis thing that's been going on. I (5 comments)
One In A Million Sounds Better... But Still A Miracle! - 04/25/12 07:00 AM
This past week we were privileged to be part of a miracle healing. One of our amazing worship leaders from our church was struck down with a serious sudden illness. Her name is Tiffany Aitken and along with her husband Jon, they lead worship a few times a month at our church, Life Center. She is a young mother of 3 beautiful children and last Monday she was feeling really poorly. *When taken in for examination she was ordered directly to the hospital and diagnosed with what we first heard to be a blood clot in a lung and later turned (3 comments)
The Perfect Sermon - 04/11/12 07:50 AM
There was never before and there has never been since, a sermon that could be any better than this perfect sermon. It was delivered impromptu almost 2,000 years ago on a hillside in Galilee. Here it is in it's entirety via the Message version. If you forgot everything else in the bible and just followed these words, it would be enough. Matthew 5 You're Blessed When Jesus saw his ministry drawing huge crowds, he climbed a hillside. Those who were apprenticed to him, the committed, climbed with him. Arriving at a quiet place, he sat down and taught his climbing companions. (5 comments)
Is Solar energy really viable? - 04/03/12 07:37 AM
As reports come in on another government subsidized solar company's bankruptcy, I wonder is solar and wind energy really viable today? I want to take a trip off my usual path for just one day. I have a brother-in-law who is extremely bright and a born entrepreneur. Back in the mid 70's he started his own solar business. It was mostly water heaters at that time. They were bulky, huge and really didn't make as much hot water as was needed by a family. It might have been viable for just 2 people in a household, but that wasn't the case (50 comments)
