Video Tour of the mess from my current processes

I am in the middle of rearranging many things in my residence. I was going to show when it was all neat and tidy. And I will do that later. But here is my present reality.

This is like going behind the scenes of the making of a movie.


It is my way to show and tell how I deal with my life.


This is the real deal, Lucille. Here is John S.…

What did Jesus come to do? - Go ahead and make a list and then compare it to this blog post

Over the decades I have asked my self the simple yet profound question What did Jesus come to do?

I challenge you to pause and make a note of your answers.

REALLY I mean make time to STOP and make the list.

THEN go to this post and note that the writer located 23 answers in the Bible.

So what ones were missing from your list?

What ones do you disagree with the writer?…

These 2 questions and the modest proposal resonate with me these days - what about you?

How do I get people to imitate Jesus in daily life as opposed to giving intellectual assent to Christian ideas without exhibiting life transformation?…

How can such a story resonate with those of such different cultures and backgrounds?

The small town where it was filmed gets 300 thousand visitors a year from various countries. What does that say and imply?

The movie had been a popular stage play before…

Hi John this is Biju Mathew from India. I am into TV Production and Media Training. Looking for partners to involve in raising an ARMY of Media Missionaries in India & Other countries. Since it is the end times I surely believe Media has a big role to play; moreover as Media Missionaries we are having a very big task ahead of us. If we can join together to impart the knowledge in raising Media Missionaries around the globe the evangelism will be more effective. Let us prayerfully work for it
