We walked into the upscale Irish pub and headed toward the bar. Nope. I hadn’t been there. But when I stepped into the central dining room area and caught sight of a magnificent low-hanging chandelier, I knew Ihad been here before, right before I got sick, with Stephen, his sister, and her husband before that Ryan Adams show. Not only did I remember being here, but I also remembered what I ordered: fish and chips. How much does retin a cost with insurance How long to get fosamax out of system Darwin, understandably, was horrified by this idea and wrote to Wallace,“I hope you have not murdered too completely your own and my child.” Darwin, for his part, had a much more open view of the process of natural selection and adaptation, foreseeing that biological structures might find uses very different from those for which they had originally evolved. (Stephen Jay Gould and Elisabeth Vrba called this sort of redeployment an “exaptation” rather than a direct adaptation.)13

Semi-regular Newsletter - Hi from Farnk

December 27, 2013

Dear Friends and Loved Ones,

I have started many newsletters over the past couple months and then scrapped them. By the time I was ready to send them, I changed my ideas or new revelation came that changed the landscape of this Sabbath Millennium. I wrote things and then realized it was very incomplete and sometimes wrong.

We are facing more radical adjustments than the world has seen since the days of Noah. Jesus' words, "as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be ....." mean a lot more than appears on the surface.

Many of you have been asking about my health. I am convicted for not sharing with you as often as I should. Since the last cardio-version (paddling) August 14th, my heart has stayed in rhythm. I still get exhausted very easily, but I've said to hell with stopping or bailing on the work. A few weeks ago I baptized three men down in Oceanside – actually got in the cold, rough water. Then when Rick Hohn shared at his monthly Brother Benno's time and threw out the net. Two more men were caught in the web of God's love and mercy. We baptized them the next Sunday.
What a blessed and fulfilling privilege to experience the joy of this old-age fruit while awaiting the renewal of youth like an eagle, and whatever brain and body adjustments are coming toward pre-flood levels.

I miss Bible teaching and am scheduling two weekly sessions to scratch this itch. The format will be question and answer, or a section of the Bible, or a pre-determined topic. Alan Haghighi will be teaming up with me for the Vista meeting, and hopefully some of the Laguna Woods gatherings. 

Here are the particulars:

VISTA MEETINGS (Begins January 7, 2014):
Tuesday evenings, 6:30 PM. at
California Fruit Wine
1040 La Mirada Court, Vista CA

LAGUNA WOODS (Begins January 2, 2014)
Thursday afternoons, 4:00 PM
Frank and Betty's community rec-room
2397 via Mariposa West, Laguna Woods, CA.
(Non-residents call me to get gate clearance.)

The warm, comforting, and soothing peace of God, which doesn't make any sense at all, keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus, whose you are and whom you serve.
