II. Lectionary Reflections - Second Coming of Jesus

5. Signs that the End is Near

The Christian is always to be watchful / and alert to the possibility of Christ's imminent return, because He has promised that on one future day the heavens will be split asunder and He will return for His own! And this passage makes it very clear that Jesus doesn't want His followers to be caught off guard when that day arrives. ...

6. Coming soon

When the kingdom comes, the signs will be clear, even for a people who arenít good at reading them. Until then, remember: We are a sign. ...

7. Falling Temples

God is watching out for you. Even down to the hairs on your head. Just hang on and even should our 'temples' fall, you won't lose what matters most of all. For God has claimed you as a Beloved Child. You are God's Own....

8. Reading the Signs

10. Living in India is Like Having an Intense but Insane Affair

To outsiders, living in India has a particular kind of glamour attached to it, a special sparkle that sees people crowding around me at parties. "You live in India? My God, really? .. India and I fight, we scream, we argue, we don't speak for days on end, but really, deep down, we love each other. She's a strange beast, this India. ...

11. Reflections on India

If you are Indian, or of Indian descent, I must preface this post with a clear warning: you are not going to like what I have to say. My criticisms may be very hard to stomach. But consider them as the hard words and loving advice of a good friend.

12. An Indian education?

Indian students are taking their useless Indian liberal arts degrees and going abroad to get real ones that signify a real education. A real education being one that challenges the intellect and questions paradigms, not one of rote memorization and conformity. ...
