Plague of Meat

by Tyler Dirks

Quail carcasses everywhere. A day’s walk in any direction …3 feet of quail corpses as far as the eye can see. Envision it. See it in your mind’s eye till you start to smell the sea of meat …hold it fast in your imagination till you can practically feel the wilting feathers being pressed underfoot […]

Racial Reconciliation

by Tyler Dirks

Yesterday I studied the Bible with a man who doesn’t (physically) look like me. We are both of the same race (the human race), but our ethnicity is different. Also, our life experiences and cultures are a bit different. As we talked about what we see God saying to us in Scripture – our interpretations […]

Can’t Wait For Cake

by Tyler Dirks

Yesterday our Father gathered His family together, and He said, “the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end – it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.” These Words were originally given to our ancestor Habakkuk regarding God’s promise to send […]

I Decided to Know Nothing Except…

by Tyler Dirks

I long for sweet simplicity. Hillary. Trump. Capitalism. Welfare. Political Correctness. Media Insanity. Lots and lots and lots of talking and emotion and mobs when there ought to be listening and curiosity and asking – in the words of Mr. Fox – “What’s the subtext here?” I hunger and thirst for stability and clarity and […]

Abraham’s Offspring

by Tyler Dirks

In Acts 7 a guy named Stephen tells the story of Abraham’s Offspring. It’s a fascinating & lamentable anomaly of a story. It starts out with the God of Glory revealing Himself to a pagan fella named Abraham. God tells Abraham to leave the only land he’s ever known (leaving behind his family, friends, culture, […]

Ready to Die [nunc dimittis]

by Tyler Dirks

Well, it’s Christmas time! And of course that means we’re all ready to die. Right?   Christmas time and death? …What do these have in common? What is Tyler talking about? Has he gone cray cray?   …Has Tyler been overly-influenced by Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)? Is Tyler denouncing the consumerism commercialism […]

Love & Obedience

by Tyler Dirks

Do you like Science Fiction (why or why not)?  What do you make of Spiritual Warfare (what comes  to mind when you hear the words “Spiritual Warfare“?  How do you understand the premise and particulars of spiritual warfare?).  If you’re keen on developing a better understanding of The Great War, and if you fancy Science […]

Dear Wormwood

by Tyler Dirks

It’s been a long time since the last blog post here on the ECPC website.  I know that all of you faithful blog readers have been going through withdrawals, but alas – here is a fresh blog post! Disclaimer:  blogging is not my “unique ability” (at least I don’t think it is …but one can […]
