Cyprus Journal-Part 2

Monday—January 17, 2005
What a great day we had today. Last night we had a reasonable sleep, but there was a continuous “white noise” in the background that we couldn’t avoid in our room. The pool’s pump room next door made it seem as if we were berthed beside a ship’s engine. The woman at the reception desk graciously allowed us to change to a different room: one that had a great ocean view. Ask, and ye shall receive! Why is man-made noise generally so annoying and disagreeable while the sound of the Creator’s ocean waves crashing on the beach is relaxing melody to the soul? Here it was the month of January and I had the window open to listen to the ocean and the wind. It was a bit brisk, but not too cold.

Breakfast at the resort was a real bonus…

    As followers of Christ, once we know that God has given us a command to keep the Sabbath day, then we begin to ask, “What should we do to keep the Sabbath Holy?” Jeff Patton takes a closer look at the biblical examples of Sabbath observance to help us walk in the footsteps of Christ and the disciples.

    Circumcise a boy baby in San Francisco and you could face a year in jail under a proposed San Francisco bylaw that will be put to voters in November (“San Francisco Could Ban Circumcision,” Tristin Hopper, National Post, May 20, 2011). The article also stated that infant circumcision has been in rapid decline in the United States in recent years. In 2006, 56% of American newborns were circumcised. Just three years later in 2009 that number was only 32.5%. In Canada about 31% of newborns are circumcised each year according to a 2007 survey…

    Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it Holy. Sound familiar? It should ring a bell. God wants to go on a date with you at the end of the week, are you going to stand God up? Jeff Patton discusses the fourth commandment, and why it is so important for a Christian to remember.

    Cyprus Journal –Preaching the Good News

    Did you know that Joseph, later nicknamed Barnabas, was a levite born and raised in Cyprus? Jeff Patton recounts his Cypriot adventure and his thoughts on the journey of Paul and Barnabas to preach the gospel in Cyprus.

    Sunday—January 16, 2005
    We flew into Paphos, Cyprus, for our vacation about 8 o’clock at night in the midst of a winter storm complete with lightning flashes and blustery winds. After clearing immigration, the representative from the travel company cracked the expected jokes to the planeload of Brits about bringing in the bad weather so as to feel right at home. But then, maybe it was the five Canucks from British Columbia’s Vancouver Island who squeezed on board that were responsible for what would be our typical BC January weather blowing off the Pacific Ocean—wet but rather mild temperature-wise.
    It was thrilling to come to Cyprus despite our thunder and blitzen welcome and to be on the island anciently known as Kittim, the reputed birthplace of the fertility goddess Aphrodite. So many exciting things happened here during the early days of the Church.

    The Power of the Name from cogwebcast on Vimeo.

    Most Christians will readily admit that it is not good to swear or use God’s name as a “filler” for lack of something better to say. Yet the third commandment is concerned with matters far greater than the profane banter in the workplace or schoolyard. Jeff Patton delves into the scripture to bring to light God’s instructions on who bears His name and how His name is to be honoured.
