When I Got Mugged

July 18, 2004 — Prospect Avenue, Brooklyn, New York.

My summer internship at a Baptist church in Brooklyn was nearing its end. This particular Sunday evening, I picked up the metro from the Park Slope area and rode down to Bath Beach to play piano for a small Spanish church. 978 more words

Meditations

Feeding the 5,000+

My church has recently been going through the book of Luke, and today the sermon was on Luke 9:10-17, which is the account where Jesus feeds 5000 men with just two fish and five loaves of bread (the women and children were not counted, so total could have been upwards of 12,000 people listening to Jesus). 315 more words
