“. . . Jesus is working to restore the original vision of creation. Jesus starts from the innermost part of us, the seat of our relationship with God, and works outward to include our physical being. This process is like what [C. S.] Lewis called ‘death working backwards,’ as the ravaging effects of the Fall are reversed.”
from Brad Long & Cindy Strickler, Let Jesus Heal Your Hidden Wounds: Cooperating with the Holy Spirit in Healing Ministry. Grand Rapids, MI: Chosen Books, 2001. p. 29.
I am a husband, father, and grandfather. A small, town about fifteen miles west of Pittsburgh is home currently, though several other places have served that purpose before this. I maintain a YouTube channel of Bible teaching videos and a podcast of Bible teaching audio. I like to make things in my woodshop. I like taking photographs and use a lot of them in my blog posts. I go fishing in the local streams and lakes when I can. For thirty-nine years, I served as a pastor of churches in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York.
