Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

The Duggars At Work

Everyone at work has pretty much always thought I was more than slightly crazy, especially when I start talking about how I want lots and lots of children. Several of them (both parents and fellow staff) say, "Just have one, and you'll change your mind."

Recently this has changed. One of the staff members who always said that I would change my mind said, "You know, I saw that family, the one with 18 children, and they all start with J..."

"The Duggar family?"

"That's the one. And they were all so well behaved! And I thought, maybe Sam isn't so crazy. 20 children like that would be great!"
