George H.W. Bush’s service dog, “Sully”


Spokesman for the Bush family Jim McGrath shared this photo of George H.W. Bush's service dog, Sully. https://bit.ly/2FTFD5R

KVUE, “Mission complete. #Remembering41” 9:01 PM - Dec 2, 2018 HOUSTON — George H.W. Bush’s service dog spent a moment with the 41st president’s casket on Sunday night, ahead of a week filled with memorial services.

Bush’s longtime spokesman, Jim McGrath, tweeted a photo the service dog, Sully, laying in front of the casket. The caption read, “Mission complete.”

Bush’s son Jeb retweeted the photo and said, “Sully has the watch.”

According to a news article at KVUE, “Bush will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol giving the American public an opportunity to bid farewell. An arrival ceremony will be held for the former president on Monday at 5 p.m. CT. The public is invited to pay respects beginning Monday at 6:30 p.m. CT through Wednesday at 6 a.m.

“Wednesday [Dec. 5, 2018] is the national day of mourning.

“A plane arrived at Ellington Airport in Houston to take Bush’s body to Washington. A train will eventually take him to his final resting place in College Station with his wife Barbara, who died earlier this year, and daughter Robin, who died from leukemia as a child.”

Whatever happened to the Navy midshipman who gave President Bush a bear hug?

If you want a good example of what a difference community newspapers make, read: VIRGINIA MILITARY NEWS - “Whatever happened to the Navy midshipman who gave President Bush a bear hug? Discipline. Then redemption.” By Brock Vergakis, Staff writer, Nov 21, 2018

“Bobby Rashad Jones couldn't help himself. He was the midshipman with the lowest grade-point average in the Naval Academy Class of 2001 – known as the anchor – and was overwhelmed with joy to receive his commission after spending years on academic probation…

“The former linebacker grabbed Bush's hand, pulled him in and hugged the commander-in-chief. And not just any hug; a bear hug that briefly lifted Bush off the ground as part of what Jones would later describe as an "out-of-body experience."

CJR by Karen K. Ho: Former Globe and Mail reporter on resigning over race dispute

Former Globe and Mail reporter on resigning over race dispute

‘It all played out very suddenly’: Former Globe and Mail reporter on resigning over race dispute


Fascinating read: 15Nov2018 CJR by Karen K. Ho: Sunny Dhillon was a reporter with The Globe and Mail, Canada’s national newspaper. Since 2010, he’d worked out of the Vancouver office; in October, shortly after a civic election, he quit. He explained why in a piece for Medium, Journalism While Brown and When to Walk Away: in an article about the new city council—composed mostly of white women—Dhillon wanted to focus on the lack of diversity (Vancouver is 45 percent Asian) but his bureau chief overruled him. The essay, on the challenges he and other journalists of color experience in predominantly white newsrooms… Read more here: https://www.cjr.org/q_and_a/globe-and-mail-sunny-dhillon.php

Beware of the Scribes Mark 12:38–44





Beware of the Scribes Mark 12:38–44

Handout picture from the church service at Grave Lutheran Church on November 11, 2018 to go along with the Gospel Lesson - Mark 12: 38-44

I did not make it to church last Sunday and I am just getting around to studying the bulletin and the announcements.

I was intrigued with a picture that was handed out with the bulletin. I am really sad that I missed the sermon. 

I have always had a certain fascination with the “Beware of the Scribes” lesson in Mark.

I did a quick search and found a number of good commentaries. I guess this one stood out a bit. It is from a web site that I would like to bookmark for the future, WorkingPreacher.org - https://www.workingpreacher.org/preaching.aspx?commentary_id=1418 “Commentary on Mark 12:38-44,” by Micah D. Kiel, Associate Professor of Theology, St. Ambrose University, Davenport, Iowa. 

He wrote in part, “Two brief stories in Mark 12:38-44 deal with wealth issues in ways that are still challenging today. 

“First are those who think they are more important than everyone else. In verses 38-40 Jesus specifically denounces the scribes. In Mark's estimation they are self-important, arrogant, and self-aggrandizing. This section of Mark's gospel, since Jesus' triumphal entry, has been dominated by controversy and antagonistic interaction between Jesus and various groups with leadership responsibilities in first-century Judaism. It is not surprising, then, that we find here a final nail in the coffin, a sweeping condemnation of the scribes.

“This short text in Mark is replete with echoes and interesting interpretations of certain themes from Israel's scriptures. Widows are often provided as the example par excellence as those to whom caring justice should be meted out. It is interesting that, in Deuteronomy 14:28-29, certain of the Jewish leaders (in this case, the Levites) are listed as among the aliens, orphans and widows who need support from the community because they have devoted themselves entirely to God.

“The scribes here, with their ostentatious robes and prayers and their insistence on being first have lost their tether to the demands of God. Mark's Jesus has already told us that whoever wants to be first must be last and servant of all (10:35), so the basis on which the judgment rests in 12:38-40 has already been established…” Read more here: https://www.workingpreacher.org/preaching.aspx?commentary_id=1418 

Mark 12:38–44

As he taught, he said, “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces, and to have the best seats in the synagogues and places of honor at banquets! They devour widows’ houses and for the sake of appearance say long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.”

He sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the crowd putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which are worth a penny. Then he called his disciples and said to them, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”

Happy 243rd Birthday United States Marine Corps

Happy 243rd Birthday United States Marine Corps 10 Nov. 1775 - 2018

For God and country, Semper Fi. I was asked this evening to share a bit of the distinguished history of the USMC and the 100th anniversary of World War I – especially the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Belleau Wood.

I was the keynote speaker at the 243rd Anniversary of the United States Marine Corps 1775-2018. Saturday, 10 November 2018, 1730-2130 (5:30-9:30 pm.) The 4th District of the Department of Maryland, Marine Corps League annual birthday ball at the American Legion Carroll Post 31, 2 Sycamore St., Westminster, MD  21157.

Much of my research into the history of the Marines dates back to the classes I took in the summer of 1972 in Quantico Virginia. I still prize my tattered, torn, and worn 1970 "Concise History of the Unites States Marine Corps 1775-1969," by Captain William D. Parker, USMCR.

For those of you who have served or are currently serving: thank you. Your dedication and service to our country is deeply appreciated. Indeed, that appreciation is the purpose of having a Marine Corps Ball – in addition to the not so minor detail of following Gen. John A. Lejeune's Nov. 1, 1921, Marine Corps Order No. 47 to have a yearly birthday celebration.

Any discussion of the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI must include the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Belleau Wood; which raged for nearly a month, June 1 through June 26, 1918. Many historians consider the battle of Belleau Wood to be the beginning of the end of WWI. The introduction of the Marines in the war effort had a direct impact on the successful conclusion of the hostilities.

The Marine nickname of 'devil dog' can be traced back to the Battle of Belleau Wood. The German officers referred to the Marines as the "Teufel Hunden," which is German for "Devil Dogs," in their field reports. Exhausted, outnumbered, and outgunned, the Marines refused to yield.

On November 11, 2018, we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. The United States entered the war on April 6, 1917. 

Approximately 62,000 Marylanders served, 2,000 died, including 31 from Carroll County. According to my friend and fellow historian, Judge Joe Getty, at the time of the war, Carroll County had a "population of only 34,000; 1,200 men and women served with the armed forces. Of those, 14 were killed in action or died of their wounds, twenty died of disease or accidents and two committed suicide."

These young men gave their lives and their future in two military operations that changed the world.

Happy Birthday Marines. For Corps and Country, Semper Fidelis.

A Prayer for Veterans: for the Men and Women in Uniform


A Prayer for Veterans: for the Men and Women in Uniform

11Nov2018 I was looking for a prayer for an upcoming Veterans program in case I was asked at the last minute to step in with a prayer. Looking for some inspiration, I found this prayer after a quick search: “A Veterans Day Prayer: For Those Who Protect Our Nation,” by Debbie McDaniel Crosswalk.com Blogspot for Debbie McDaniel of Fresh Day Ahead – from 11Nov2016 It may be found here: https://www.crosswalk.com/blogs/debbie-mcdaniel/a-veterans-day-prayer-for-those-who-protect-our-nation.html

Ms. McDaniel – if it is not okay that I have shared your prayer here – just email me at kevindayhoff at gmail.com and let me know and I will immediately take it down. THX – And thanks in advance for a great Veterans Day prayer.

+++++++++++

We honor you today Veterans, and all those who wear the uniform, as we pray...and give thanks...and remember.

The Lord bless you greatly for your service and sacrifice.

And may God bless America!

Dear God, We thank you for the freedom you have given to us, and for the price that was paid by Christ so that we could live free. We remember today. The cost of it all. The great sacrifice for freedom.

We thank you for the brave who have fought, and continue to fight, so courageously for our nation. We ask for your covering and blessing over them and their families. We pray that you would be gracious and encircle them with your peace. We pray for your great favor and goodness to be evident in their lives.

Please be with the men and women in uniform, who serve our communities and nation every single day. We ask that you provide your protection, that you would be their guiding force who leads the way, and their rear guard who keeps them safe from behind. We ask that you would draw them to yourself amidst the dangers they face in a dark world, for you are the Truth, you are the Way, you are the Light.

When the voice of hate rises up against them, we ask that you would silence it. When the plans of the enemy rise up to cause them to stumble, we ask that you would thwart it. When the forces of evil rise up to strike them down, we ask that you would stop it. Lord, we know how powerful you are, all have heard of your Great Name, and we ask that you would indeed be the wind beneath their wings, the power behind their efforts, the heart behind their service, as they are on the front lines against evil in our world today.

Help them to walk wisely. To stay covered in your armor. Give them godly discernment. Make them constantly aware of what lurks close by. Help them to be men and women of prayer, realizing that this is where their greatest help comes from. Help them to stay united and strong, bold and resolute, determined and unwavering.

Lord bless all those who wear the uniform, who serve our cities, our nation, our people. Bless their families. Bless those they love. Give them your great favor, this day, and every day.

Thank you that in our nation today, we are free to worship. We are free to pray. We are free to read your Word.  We are free to speak.  We are free to share. For this, we are incredibly grateful. Yet, we understand how quickly these freedoms can be taken away. Give us an increased awareness of the spiritual battle we're in. Help us to stand strong in you and for your purposes.

Thank you that as believers, we can be assured, you never leave us, and you are with us always, in this life, and the next.

Amen.
