Yesterday – spurred by a tremendous month of July – The Deep End hit another one of those round-number milestones in number of views all-time. Thanks again to everyone who has visited. Thanks most of all to the Lord God Almighty for giving us such a wealth of knowledge, wisdom, insight, blessings, and spiritual Truth in the Holy Bible, and for giving me the opportunity to write about it.

The category called “Bible Studies” contains posts that come from times when I have been asked to fill in for a preacher or pastor who is sick or away on a mission trip, or to teach what are called “devotions” at couples’, men’s, or children’s events. Some of them come from funerals, prayer breakfasts, youth conferences, teacher-training seminars, Christian school chapel services, and all kinds of fellowship activities. Some of them come from my private devotional studies. They are about a diverse range of topics, hence the broad category heading. I hope and pray that you’ll find at least something useful in them.
