Looking at Leaders

Ezekiel 33: 7 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from Me. 8 When I say to the wicked, ‘You wicked person, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak out to dissuade them from their ways, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 9 But if you do warn the wicked person to turn from their ways and they do not do so, they will die for their sin, though you yourself will be saved.

Persecution Can Be Positive

Philippians 1: 12-14, 19-30 12. Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. 13 As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. 14 And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.

Isaiah 5, The Song of the Vineyard

By Linsey Dettmer

5 I will sing for the One I love a song about His vineyard:

My loved One had a vineyard on a fertile hillside. 2 He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vines. He built a watchtower in it and cut out a winepress as well. Then He looked for a crop of good grapes, but it yielded only bad fruit.3 “Now you dwellers in Jerusalem and people of Judah, judge between Me and My vineyard. 4 What more could have been done for My vineyard than I have done for it? When I looked for good grapes, why did it yield only bad? 5 Now I will tell you what I am going to do to My vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it will be destroyed. I will break down its wall, and it will be trampled. 6 I will make it a wasteland, neither pruned nor cultivated, and briers and thorns will grow there. I will command the clouds not to rain on it.” 7 The vineyard of the Lord Almighty is the nation of Israel, and the people of Judah are the vines He delighted in. And He looked for justice, but saw bloodshed; for righteousness, but heard cries of distress. Continue reading “Isaiah 5, The Song of the Vineyard”

Bats, the Furry Fliers

Bats, the flying mammals, are fascinating creatures that inhabit human folklore in mostly inaccurate fashion. Walking across the campus of Emmanuel College one day, I saw a crowd behind one of the buildings. A large colony of bats had made their home in the attic, which had been fumigated to drive the furry fliers out. They were flopping around on the ground, sick and dying. I scooped up as many as I could into a box and took them home, where some survived and some did not. Continue reading “Bats, the Furry Fliers”

In Memory of Poly,
a Gopher Tortoise

Poly was just four years old when she came to live with the Lesters in 1964. Dr. Lester was teaching high school biology then in Orlando, Florida. One of his students brought him the baby gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus), probably in hopes of mercy at grading time.

Poly lived for 30 more years as a wonderful pet, never damaging furniture, never noisily waking the family, and never making messes (she lived in a terrarium). She always seemed pleased to receive her usual diet of fresh lettuce, but her favorite food was dandelion flowers when in season.

Although she spent most of her life in a terrarium, she was often taken outside for walks around the yard (the kind of walking Dr. Lester liked to do). When Dr. Lester was in graduate school at Purdue (1967-70), Poly had the run of the entire two-room apartment in which Lane and Gail and their two children lived. Her most cramped enclosure was a shoebox, but she only had to endure that during a flight from San Diego to Orlando.

Although Poly lived in Florida, Indiana, Tennessee, Colorado, and Virginia, almost all other gopher tortoises are found only in Florida and Texas. They live in very dry country where there is little or no standing water, getting most of their water needs from the plants they eat. Gopher tortoises escape the hottest part of the day by digging deep burrows, and the Creator has given them shovel-like front feet for the job.

Poly died in 1995 of undetermined causes and is greatly missed by the Lesters (Dr. Lester, especially). When a favorite pet dies, it is easy for Christians to wish that pets might receive a special dispensation from the Savior and get to join their friends in heaven.

The Lone Ranger and the Hurricane

I remember the day an episode of “The Lone Ranger” was coming on the radio. It wasn’t just any episode; this one would tell how the Lone Ranger became the hero he was, how his faithful Indian companion Tonto joined him, and even how he got the great horse Silver.

Since this was in the 1940s, radio was the daily entertainment medium for children and adults alike. Although radio today is mostly music and talk shows, before television it was rich with drama of all types and for all tastes.

As a youngster I had my favorites, but now I can only remember “The Lone Ranger,” the serialized story of a former Texas Ranger who had donned a mask and dedicated himself to defending truth and justice in the Old West.

Although the particular episode about the beginnings of my hero’s adventures was something special, what makes the memory stick in my mind is its being scheduled for the same night a hurricane hit my home town of Miami, Florida. One of the usual effects of a severe storm is the loss of power in the affected area, and my neighborhood was no exception.

What to do? It was unthinkable that I would have to miss this crucial episode. Here the memory is a bit fuzzy, because I don’t know how I talked my parents into the solution to my problem.

I got to hear “The Lone Ranger” that night, but I did so on the radio of our family car parked out front in the midst of the howling wind and rain.

Hurricane and Hummingbirds

n 2017 Hurricane Irma blew through Georgia and brought with it a lot of destruction. It also brought to our home a flock of hummingbirds. We’ve had a hummingbird feeder for years, but the little guys have only come one at a time to feed. Immediately after Irma blew throaficionadosugh, we started to see a bunch of birds at the feeder. We eventually bought a second feeder to meet the demand. Here’s a short video of the feeding frenzy.
