Skeleton In God’s Closet – Book Review

I had the pleasure of reading a "Historical Fiction" Christian novel. "What is Christian Historical Fiction?"  Like traditional historical fiction novels, there are elements of truth that occurred sometime in history while other elements are pure fiction. The author, Paul Maier, clearly warns readers of this in the introduction to his book.  As a matter of fact, one of his fictional characters took on real life flesh and bone (no pun intended) [...]

Stumptown Indonesia Bies Penantan Coffee Tasting

I recently traveled to New Orleans with my family and had the pleasant experience visiting two coffee houses.   The first, I would like to share with you now.  Nestled in the side of the Ace Hotel, is the newly opened Stumptown Coffee.  Fond memories of my first and only Stumptown experience caused some anticipation when I heard the New Orleans location had just opened.  It was 5 years ago when I visited the [...]

Acts Bible Study

Have you ever wanted to study the Bible?  Maybe you want to learn how the Christian church began?  The book of Acts (in the Bible) is the only historical narrative of the New Testament.  That means it's the only book of the Bible that tells the story of the first-century church in kind of a timeline format.  Important people like Jesus, James, John and Paul are  all key people we [...]

Jude v10-24 Personal Bible Study

In our last study, Jude said that God will judge the ungodly (false teachers). These false teachers “crept in, unnoticed”. Jude used 3 Old Testament examples of God’s judgment for the Ungodly: Exodus – His chosen people in the wilderness, their disbelief, and ultimate judgement The fallen Angels – their rebellion against God and God’s judgement upon them Sodom & Gammorah – sexual immorality and unnatural desires serve as an [...]

Successful DC-3 Test Hop Finally Takes Place!

DC-3 Test Hop – She Flies! My scratch built DC-3 Test Hop finally happened.  My radio controlled airplane made a (more or less) noneventful taxi test hop before I put the finishing touches on her.  The aircraft is a bit sensitive on the elevator so I will need to adjust the elevator pushrod have less travel.  I can do this through programming the radio as well as moving the clevis [...]

Jude v. 5-9 – Personal Bible Study

As we begin to read Jude v5-9, we remember that Jude introduced his letter to Christians, warning them about False Teachers, who once professed to be believers. Jude announces that they have crept into the church and are teaching false teachings. Blue text are the questions Red text are answers Green text is scripture Black text are comments If you have found this page but have not done any of [...]

Bold Bean Coffee Roasters – Review

I recently traveled to Jacksonville, Florida on a business trip and learned several interesting facts about the city.  First, their huge oak trees are beautiful!  Second, Jacksonville, known as the “Bold new city from the south”.  Third and the most important fact, Jacksonville is home to an up and coming third wave coffee roaster & artesian.  So, for the next minute or two, I thought I would share my experience [...]

Jude v. 1-4 Beware of false teachers

I’m leading a bible study with a small group.  We’re currently doing the book of Jude.  This very short letter written by the half brother of Jesus is tucked away and rarely quoted but it offers a very practical and important message to christians.  Last week I provided the background and introduction to the book.  This week we begin reading and studying verses 1-4.  In these 4 verses, Jude get’s [...]

Hario MM-2 Coffee Grinder-Review

Hario MM-2 coffee grinder – Hero or Novelty? Hario MM-2 Coffee Grinder I decided to purchase the Hario MM-2 coffee grinder last month because my Breville BCG450XL Conical Burr Grinder died.  With only 1 1/2 years of service, the Breville should have lasted much longer. Plastic gears inside the grinder stripped because it choked on a hard bean.  That story will be left for another time. With the [...]

Behmor 1600 Coffee Roaster – Review

The New Behmor 1600 Coffee Roaster is a great value I recently purchased the new Behmor 1600 Coffee Roaster.  It is the only home roasting  device that is capable of roasting up to 1 lb of green coffee beans per batch.  While most home roasters use "hot air" like a popcorn maker, the Behmor 1600 Coffee Roaster uses quartz heating elements.  They provide consistent heat that can be regulated using [...]
