My Faithbook Account

Both of my cars are garage dwellers. The tools needed for any project are my neighbor’s, and more often than not he ends up providing the means, the expertise and the labor, given my complete disdain for creating or putting things together. This should make me an “ideas guy,” but that’s another story. So, the […]

My Rabbi

Amid COVID – Sow Seeds of Righteousness

“Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, until he comes and showers righteousness on you” (Hosea 10:12). As a pastor, it is important for me to keep track of current events, both here in South Florida and throughout […]

Finding Hope in Turbulent Times

We are in a situation right now where we need hope. We need something to look forward to. We need something beyond our current situation. Most, if not all of us, have had to cancel any plans for vacation, travel, parties, sporting events, children’s events, family reunions and many other things. It is easy to […]
