Continuing Efforts...

Submitted by John T Reagan

I've been continuing my efforts to finish A Primer on Spiritual Warfare, a blog I wrote while we were attempting to plant a new church, Living Water Fellowship, in Butte, Montana.  There are a couple of new posts there and here's a link to it.  It is an on-going project, so I suggest you follow it to get notifications of when I post.  If you haven't read the beginning of the blog (and are interested in the topic) scroll down to the bottom and read from th

It's Always Awkward!

Submitted by John T Reagan

Old painting of man writing at a desk.   It was an intensely interesting conversation.  Two young people sat at the table with Ruth and me, our pastor and a couple of other people, discussing the books they were writing.  Both were involved in Christian ministry.  It was fun to join into the conversation with them since I had already published a book (albeit a nonfiction book rather than their fiction stor

Closure

Submitted by John T Reagan

On the first Sunday of October 2011 Ruth and I held the last service of Living Water Fellowship Church.  I preached to an empty room (except for Ruth) that morning.  During the four preceding years we had been attempting to plant Living Water Fellowship Church in Butte, Montana and, fully expecting that God was going to gather to us chosen people who would help make it work, I had written a blog dealing with the subject of Spiritual Warfare as a primer for people who were coming on board.  There is a lot of good insight contained in that blog and I intend to leave it up -- but I need to bri

Stray Kitty Update

Submitted by John T Reagan

The first lesson Cat taught me was that when we are dealing with "stray" people we are foolish indeed if we set our goals any higher than our goals with this cat.

Gretchen

Submitted by John T Reagan

This is a repost of a piece my mother wrote about a very special dog.  Enjoy!

In the late 1980's circumstances forced us to move from our country home to the city.  Since we couldn't take our much-loved dog, Gretchen, with us, we left her with my parents in Fairfield, Idaho on the family farm.  Gretchen thrived there and she became my parent's dog.  She would go with them on their walks and follow dad everywhere on the farm.  Then she was accidentally killed.  Here is a short piece my mother wrote shortly after that happened.
