Coming Near to God from COG Webcast on Vimeo.
God has great expectations of those who serve Him and desire to draw near to him. Jeff Patton takes you on a journey through the scriptures describing a time during the Persian Empire not unlike our own, when the people of God were divided but a work needed to be done.

They’re called the Fukushima Fifty. This is a relatively small group of lower to mid-level managers, technicians, firemen, and electrical workers who are struggling to stop a nuclear disaster at the earthquake and tsunami-damaged Fukushima Dai-Ichi power plant.

In a response to someone, I came across a not-so-great article on the Sabbath and Sunday, that I thought needed to be countered. Actually their conclusion was rather backwards from what the Bible says. Here is the letter I wrote to them:

The church is a divided church not unlike that of the apostle Paul’s day. As it was then, so today, people are giving their allegiance to a variety of men and organizations. God, however, has a mandate that he has given Christians, to heal the divisions and restore the paths of righteousness. Jeff Patton talks about General Robert E. Lee’s contribution to peace after the civil war and the biblical mandate to restore the walls of honour. We are called to be in Christ’s service restoring the walls of the church.
