The Facts of Life
Love can do all things: it can strengthen and inspire, and break hearts and ease pain, it can heal wounds and it can lead the Son of Man to a cross to willingly die for we sinners of this world and ultimately defeat death itself. All for love.

The Palm Sunday Donkey
The colt; the never-saddled donkey that was tied and waiting was worthy. It was worthy because Jesus said so. He requested it. He sent for it. And it fulfilled a mighty purpose.

Give It Away!
To keep God’s love is like heading out on a trip in a new car. It’s shiny, comfortable, and is desirable; but, if you sit in the drivers seat without starting the car it will go nowhere. Your journey, your adventure to receive more and more of God’s love is not to keep it, but to give it away…every last bit that you can – give it away. It’s then that you will find that there is only more waiting for you and spilling into your lap…give that away too.

These Are The Times That Try Men's Souls
Scripture is such that you can wade in it or you can swim in it. You can read the words and gather something from them a message that inspires and blesses you and you can read it 100 times wading into the words and find something that speaks to you. Read it one more time and swim in the scripture immersing yourself into God’s intention and open up so very much more.

The Good Side of FaceBook
Social media can be a breeding ground for shaming others, but it can also be a launching pad to lift others up and encourage them. It can be a place to downplay the existence of God and talk down believers and their faith. Or, it can be a place of prayer and holiness; rosaries and prayer groups, bible studies, and religious education. Listen now to the latest podcast from Deacon Speakin'

My Brother's Drawings
My brother was a good artist and was incredibly creative and he could put anything on paper that was in his head. Maybe I was lazy, or uncreative, or uninspired; but, I most often found myself copying whatever my big brother was drawing. He was not a fan of that and I took some shots in the arm from him for copying his work...hear more in this week's epsiode!

My Bucket's Got a Hole In It
What was so very notable about that bucket? Sure it was made of plastic – the kind you might expect an ice cream bucket to be made of, and the blue handle wasn’t so very brilliantly blue in any sense, and although the handwriting was quite neat – it was a bit uneven, but produced a clear and concise message. So, why target the bucket – this very simple repurposed bucket?

The Good Song Theory
Its funny how a melody can bring back a memory, putting you in that place and time and pulling in all the good, and sometimes bad in its entirety. Listen to The Good Song Theory and see if you agree.

The Elvis Sermon
Elvis Presley had a deep-seeded foundation in his faith and he seemed to be reaching for that when all else was reaching for him, placing him on a pedestal, and calling him King. Deacon Speakin' Episode 132: The Elvis Sermon

What Does God Look Like?
We are living in a time of “show me proof.” We seem to want something concrete or something at least solid that we can hold, and study, and weigh, and judge, in order to believe it. How can we hear God if we don’t know what he sounds like? How can we describe Jesus and say who He is? How can we roll up our sleeves and get to work on faith alone?

A Miracle Today
When was the last time you saw a good miracle? Can you recall? Can you remember ever seeing a miracle in your lifetime? Maybe you can’t. Maybe miracles are those things we only read about in the old days – those things that just don’t happen any more...well, I say that's not true!

Will the Levee Hold?
Some of the storms of life are spring showers while others are categorical hurricanes. As they approach and we anticipate the mark they will leave, we inevitably ask the question, “Will the levee hold?”

Life's Ups and Downs
Why do people climb mountains? Why do we make the journey, to exert ourselves, to risk a slip or a fall, to challenge our minds and bodies to go up and up. For my friend, Scott, its about the view – that spectacular sight from the top of the mountain. The moments when you appreciate the effort to get to the reward. It is the high points in life.

The Breechy Cow
When the pasture is not looked after, weeds will grow making the grass difficult for the cows to reach. It seems that when the weeds take over the pasture, the cows have to work hard to feed and to get to the good grass. The cow at the fence has discovered sweet grass on the other side.

The Next Chapter
The basics of story-telling go like this: Take a hero; put him in a tree; throw rocks at him; get him out of the tree. You can’t ask that your story end while still in the tree. Perhaps the chapter you are currently living is full of rocks. And they hurt. And there is lots of them. And then you hear God say, “But wait, there’s more...”

Losing a Family Pet
Why, did God create these animals in the first place. He had to know from the very beginning that we would tame them and bring them close to us and make them part of our families. He had to know that we would grow fond of them and take care of them – removing their animal necessities to survive in the wild and replacing it with decorative collars, cute names, and special dishes. But most of the time, we outlive our pets and it hurts when they are gone.
