HEADS UP. Lord willing, I’ll be posting a newsletter next week (probably in two-three parts) marked “Bryan 16 Letter.” And our 2016 poem “Live for the Savior” as a third post. Please feel free to print a copy if you like. At the height of our physical mail/sticky stamp Christmas-card-days we mailed 300-400 cards/letters. Later I moved to emailing many. Now with many friends on social media, I’ll feel free to send our Greetings electronically. Hope it will be a small blessing here and there. Merry Christmas. P.S. We still snail mail 70 plus.

Daily Bread


Do not pray for a month’s supply,

Nor to have enough “till you die.”

Pray daily for your daily bread;

That’s what our Lord said.

Years ago (don’t know starting date) hollywood linked-arms

with “science” and began producing visual “science-fiction.” Seems a gullible public loves to see itself on imaginary “ships” crossing boundless (no roads, no rules) “space.” (Happy to say they’ve not got one eab dime.) Throw in a love scene, violence (have to have violence) and people (sheeple) flock to escape their shallow, real lives. The sci-fi (a broader application than many think) “artists” are spinning thinner and thinner tales, seeing just how much they can make the public believe.

Follower of Christ, don’t accept the images of satan’s sci-fi world.
