Values of Meekness

Being Zion

It has long been the stock answer that to be meek, is to be teachable. While this certainly is a true answer, it is far from accurate. Meekness is, decidedly, a much wider and deeper subject.

Evidence

Being Zion

Traditions of Our Fathers Pt 1

Being Zion

For some time I have pondered and discussed with friends the idea of what Zion might be like from a logistical perspective. The origin of the thought was Denver Snuffer's delightful talk I simply call, Zion.

Being Zion

Edited and slightly expanded on January 6, 2019.

I have, of late, pondered long and hard regarding the effects and influence of emotion on humans with regard to our jouney to becoming a Zion people. There are times I would send my emotions to outer darkness never to be allowed back. Other times I cherish the feelings that come from close, loving relationships...

Jesus, The Very Thought of Thee

Being Zion

I was thinking, last night, about a variety of things...thoughts began to pour into my mind like a small stream below the mountains where snowmelt becomes a torrent of water. (Edited for minor gramatical issues Dec. 8, 2019.)
