A Titanic Memorial

Map of Time | A Trip Into the Past

Today marks the 101st anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic in which over 1,500 souls died. As most of you know I am a Titanic buff. Therefore I couldn’t let this day go by without posting anything. My very first post was about the RMS Titanic is you would be interested in reading that, it is here (it’s a bit stiff but I have taken care to correct errors and do some editing recently. One of these days I’m going to have to rewrite it altogether. It’s a disaster in itself). Other Map of Time Titanic-related posts can found here and here and here and here. In the meantime please find below photos of other great White Star liners from days gone by.

I hope you all…

"Fresh Manna" - Bible Devotions by Tim Burt

Fresh Manna
by Pastor Tim Burt

As many of my readers know, I am the  Minnesota State
Director for Christians United for Israel. I was recently sent this article by one of my friends – a Rabbi in my community. It blessed me more than I can say that our love for the Jewish people and Israel is being understood and that this love comes without any motive other than love for those from which are our spiritual heritage proceeded from.

The Outstretched Hand By Motti Inbari

Last week, my family and I celebrated the first night of Passover in our current hometown—Lumberton, North Carolina (population: 22,000). We have lived here since 2009, when I took a position as an assistant professor of religion at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. We are the only Israelis in town and, as far as I know, he only Jews (though there was once a small community here). But it’s not…
