Prison Ministry Time

Prison Ministry Time

Joseph Herrin (12-21-2016) I have been answering my prison correspondence. I had let it pile up for some months. Some of the inmates did not know I had a stroke back in May. I finally felt like answering all my mail. I must have answered about 70 letters and I still have a few more to do. I am not...

Christ or Messiah

Christ or Messiah

Joseph Herrin (12-12-2016) In my recent prisoner correspondence I received some excellent questions. I thought that in answering it I would write it up to share with my Internet readers as well. The specific question I will be providing an answer for in this blog is whether “Christ” is proper to...

Futon

Futon

Joseph Herrin (12-8-2016) I took out one of the beds and installed a futon sofa today. I had been using the spare bed as a storage space. I thought it would serve better as a sofa. It is hard to imagine, but I had only one place to sit in my bus. That was at my desk. I found that I could sit...

Should Christians Celebrate Christmas?

Should Christians Celebrate Christmas?

This post contains a selection of internet pieces written by different men to demonstrate why they have chosen to not celebrate Christmas. All of these men are professing believers, though they have approached this topic from a variety of perspectives. I hope to show you that it is possible to...

Christmas and the Test of Truth

Christmas and the Test of Truth

Joseph Herrin (12-18-2013) Some of my earliest and fondest childhood memories were of Christmas. Each December my parents would go pick out a live Christmas tree and bring it home. I still remember the heavy metal stand, painted green. It had thumb screws on three sides of the base to tighten down...

Christmas Holiday

Christmas Holiday

Joseph Herrin (11-22-2016) It is that festive time of year once again. It is the time lights are hung from houses, trees are brought indoors, flocked and adorned with many decorations, and in a few days people will go out and spend a small fortune on gifts for each other. Before people do, I wish...

And The Winner Is…

And The Winner Is…

Joseph Herrin (11-10-2016) The next President of the United States of America was decided this week. Are Christians worse off, or better off? The truth is that the people got what they wanted, but it is in name only. Remember Barack Obama’s big lie was “Change.” It was the only change a moral...

Update

Update

Joseph Herrin (11-04-2016) I have not listened to music for many years. This has been especially true since I have been living by myself in a motorhome for the last ten years, and before that when I was at the Macon Rescue Mission for three years. Sure, I have had brief interludes with music, but...

The Fool’s Election

The Fool’s Election

Joseph Herrin (10-24-2016) Can you imagine the American people picking the Donald and Hillary as Presidential candidates. This election shows how far the political field can be skewed by the corporate media. Still there are Christians sending me electoral information, with the vast majority of it...

Food and Music

Food and Music

Joseph Herrin (10-4-2016) I will give an update, as well as a direction for ministry in the coming days. Two things have been largely on my mind of late. Both of them are a direction for ministry. The first is eating. The second is music. Music is a topic I chose for ministry some time back. The...

I want to give an update on my well being. I had thought that I would be able to be back on track by this time, but things aren’t progressing as fast as I had thought. Nevertheless, things are moving in the right direction. I have to keep telling myself that I am making good progress. I will tell...

Getting Back At It!

Getting Back At It!

Joseph Herrin (06-26-16) Hello! Er, um, excuse me. I am getting back at it. I know it will come as quite a shock for some people, but I am really getting back to things. The picture was taken today. It is really me. Ok. It took me twenty minutes to find where the picture is being stored. It took...

Greetings

Greetings in our Lord Jesus, I just wanted to post a brief update for those of you who have been asking how my dad is doing.

Learning the Ropes

Learning the Ropes

Joseph Herrin (04-27-2016) Did you know that the expression “learning the ropes” originates in the maritime industry? Back in the days of sailing ships with their tall masts and immense spread of canvas, there were ropes everywhere aboard ship. The ropes were used to haul up the sails, and to...

Gender Benders – It’s About More Than You Think

Video Outreach

Video Outreach

Joseph Herrin (04-15-2016) The apostle Paul stated, “I have become all things to all men, that I may by all means save some” (I Corinthians 9:22). The context of Paul’s words was his determination to spread the gospel of Christ Yahshua to as many people as possible. He wanted to reach out to both...

April’s Promise

April’s Promise

Joseph Herrin (04-14-2016) View From My Front Window (Click on Any Image to View Larger) I love the Spring of the year. All of the seasons hold their own unique attraction, but Spring always seems to be full of hope. The grass greens up and begins growing again. The trees begin to put on leaves...

In Praise of Puppies

Joseph Herrin (04-07-2016) (Click on any Photo to View Larger) What is better than puppies in Springtime? Spring is often associated with new life, and my household has recently been blessed with an abundance of it. Girlfriend, acquired this past year as a companion for my dog Champ, had her first...

Gesture of Defiance

Gesture of Defiance

Joseph Herrin (04-05-2016) I had not anticipated writing a post on the subject of the Palmyra Arch from the Temple of Bel, but continued correspondence and additional information has led me to do so. For those not already familiar with this “news” story, it was reported last year that the...

Staying Busy

Staying Busy

Joseph Herrin (04-04-2016) The photo above shows the new dog food storage bin I constructed to make things a bit neater at the entrance to my bus/motorhome. I don’t like clutter. I have always been an admirer of the motto “A place for everything, and everything in its place.” I even wash up the...

April Fools

April Fools

Joseph Herrin (04-01-2016) Proverbs 1:7 The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of knowledge; But the foolish despise wisdom and instruction. This world is a very foolish place. The fear of Yahweh is rarely found even among professing Christians today, and it is scoffed at by the world. This fact was...

Spring Forward

Spring Forward

Joseph Herrin (03-30-2016) There is something about the Spring of the year that puts people into a mood for house cleaning. I think it has to do with being able to open up the doors and windows and let the fresh air in as well as a greater abundance of sunlight. This stimulates us to air the house...
