Nov 24/2009My mom passed on to heaven quietly on the morning of Oct 31, 2009. The family wrote memories of her, which were read at the service. We are still challenged with difficult decisions concerning my father's ongoing care, especially concerning possibly moving him to a medical facility. I covet your prayers for wisdom, gentleness, acceptance, and door-opening needed for this to be done with peace of heart for all involved.
Oct 24/2009Things are still very challenging here at home, with both parents under 24/7 personal care here now. (I appreciate the prayers for help in this confusing and quasi-oppressive time.)
But I was able to finish a research-reply for a Muslim correspondent, on Does the Qur'an or Islam teach that Jesus did NOT die on the Cross? (Part One of a two-part question).
Added a couple of books
Oct 6/2009No new material, because I have been/am swamped with home health issues (e.g. my Mom here went under home hospice care two weeks ago, and my Dad went into the hospital with pneumonia and heart problems last Monday--and is still there) and heavy business travel (until the health crisis here forced me to cancel some of those). I AM, though, teaching a bible study via Skype 'into' Palo Alto California [see bob.rail.com/john/Welcome.html ] but otherwise, I am consumed by the current health needs here. Prayers would be appreciated!

Added an URGENT prayer request to Prayer requests
June 20 /2009It has been a busy couple of months with incessant business travel, family medical issues, and work on the Punjabi-ctt.com website. I have several smaller pieces to write/edit/post on the Tank, but it seems to be slow-going this year...
Added a couple of books.Added an entry for a sweet-hearted Muslim correspondent, on How can Christians believe that there is only one God, and yet still call Jesus the Son of God--not a scholarly piece, but more informal--yet still long-winded (smile) ... [Translations of this into Urdu and Punjabi can be found at Urdu-ctt.com].
