I heard a good preacher yesterday.  Barb and I have joined a Filipino
church here in Vancouver.  The pastor is actually “German” but he pastors
this energetic caramel coloured group.  He was an intern with me in North Van for two years while he studied at Regent.  Did a very good job with Acts 12 about the story of Herod refusing to give glory to God, and then dying of worms. He drew the analogy that the worms who devoured him (anatomically speaking) came from within him, not without.  He then challenged us/me with the question–what worms of destruction lie latent in our souls that given the right time, right circumstances, right situations…will erupt and multiply themselves to the point of devouring our souls?
