Camp Mashiach, Messianic Youth Camp. Registration is open….

Hey all, a quick note to remind you that NOW is the time to get your sons and daughters, ages 13-18, registered for Camp Mashiach, a Messianic/Hebrew roots Youth camp!

Earlier today we watched Camp Yeshua sell out about 350 camper slots in a short 16 hours from opening of registration!  Camp Mashiach, in its second year, is a fantastic choice, modeled after Camp Yeshua.  Last year, three of our sons attended Camp Mashiach and had a blast while experiencing spiritual growth.

I highly recommend.  Do not delay…  Registration is open!

A most tender display of repentance!!

Following in an amazing letter and response between two incredible and incredibly different men, both of whom I am privileged to call friends and co-laborers in the restoration of long broken relations. I first read Ken Rank’s letter a few days ago, and it drew tears because it expresses the cry of my heart. Imagine my surprise when writer and friend, Eliyahu Berkowitz of Breaking Israel News, reached across the fence with the kindest of responses that drew still more tears!!

Abba is doing something that is utterly amazing in our day. May we all not only be given eyes to see it, but may we also walk in this level of humility and repentance as we seek our Father’s face and his restoration of a long broken relationship!


A Yom Kippur Repentance From a Devout Non-Jew and My Jewish Response

I received this letter from Ken Rank last week. Rank founded United 2 Restore in order to bring Jews and Christians, or as he prefers to describe it, Judah and Ephraim closer together, in order to “re-build bridges of communication which have been previously burned”. He sent me this letter as part of his personal teshuvah (repentance) for Yom Kippur. My response to him was sincere, and I intend for it to be a part of my Yom Kippur prayers.

‘Unity’ does not mean ‘Homogenous’

We have the luxury of having milk goats and therefore, fresh milk.  One of the interesting things about fresh milk is that the cream rises to the top.milk  Most know this, however, the dairy industry has virtually erased the examples from our refrigerators by taking some cream off the milk, then homogenizing the rest.

The process of homogenizing is a bit violent in that the milk is processed in such a manner that the fat globules in the remaining cream are broken up to such a degree that they will remain suspended in the milk rather than rise to the top.  As such, every tablespoon of milk, from top to bottom in a gallon will look exactly the same.  supposedly, consumers like this.

Me?  I know better.  I love skimming cream off of the top of a couple quarts of fresh milk for my coffee, or to enrichen some delicious dish.  Mashed potatoes with fresh cream…  (Now, that is ‘the bomb.’)

Recently, I’ve had several conversations concerning the divisions in the Hebraic movement.  There are so many divisions that it is hard to fathom Yeshua’s final prayer with the disciples.  He prayed for, among other things, unity!!  He prayed they (us) would be ‘one.’  Echad!

Yet, a cursory look at Christendom and we find little unity…  even less among the Hebraic.  The Adversary must be delighted!  (But, I digress.)

Does ‘unity’ mean ‘homogenous?’  Let’s consider the definitions and some Scripture.

ho·mo·ge·neous

adjective ˌhō-mə-ˈjē-nē-əs, -nyəs

: made up of the same kind of people or things Continue reading “‘Unity’ does not mean ‘Homogenous’”
