The Heidelberg Catechism   2 comments

One of the books I am reading right now is called “The Good News We Almost Forgot – Rediscovering the Gospel in a 16th Century Catechism” by Kevin L. DeYoung.  What a great book!  Here’s a description:

In The Good News We Almost Forgot Kevin DeYoung explores the Heidelberg Catechism and writes 52 brief chapters on what it has shown him. The Heidelberg is largely a commentary on the Apostle’s Creed, the Ten Commandments, and the Lord’s Prayer and the book deals with man’s guilt, God’s grace, and believers’ gratitude. The result is a clear-headed, warm-hearted exploration of the faith, simple enough for young believers and deep enough for mature believers. As DeYoung writes, “The gospel summarized in the Heidelberg Catechism is glorious, it’s Christ gracious, it’s comfort rich, it’s Spirit strong, it’s God Sovereign, and it’s truth timeless.” Come and see how your soul can be warmed by the elegantly and logically laid out doctrine that matters most: we are great sinners and Christ is a greater Savior!

The Middle of Nowhere, Washington   12 comments

The Hubby and I took a road trip along Washington’s Highway 20 as well as some other interesting roads that came along the way!  At times, what we saw was not what you would expect the state of Washington to look like!

The sites were breathtaking and thought-provoking as well…
