RFA (5/8)



  1. Let me address a couple of points, since I am an ordained pastor in the Wesleyan Church (the same denomination as Eastern Hills Wesleyan). First, Kim (Kerr) Pegula's family has a long history in the Wesleyan Church denomination, especially in WNY. Her dad has served in lay leadership positions for many years and Kim graduated from Houghton College (now University) which is one the five Wesleyan Church denomination schools for higher Ed. Yes, it is from the Methodist line of churches, definitely not prosperity gospel or super charismatic. While some larger churches have more revenue, typically our denomination sets the basic budget for pastoral salary, and it is not exorbitant (typically think around $600-700/week). I don't know any Wesleyan pastors that are rich according to American standards. Now relative to the rest of the world, we're all extremely wealthy ... Secondly, it is not common, but also not unheard of, to hold a prayer service for those in serious health conditions. My church held one for a member who was intubated during the worst of COVID. She recovered and the family was supported through that time because of that service. Lastly, why would we assume we pray for someone after they pass? From a Christian standpoint, the time that God could typically intervene is before they pass. King David, in 2 Samuel, fasts and prays fervently for his newborn son. When his son passed away, he got up, washed and ate some food. His servants asked why he was no longer "mourning" (by fasting and praying) ... David's response was essentially while the boy was living there was still a chance that God would show his grace and heal his son. Once he died, the matter was settled.
  2. Let's just call this award "best statistical QB award"because that is what it has become. MVP talk should have ended when Chad Henne marchrd 98 yards for a TD against Jacksonville when PM was hurt and out of the game. It is obvious to anyone watching that PM is not the MVP if his backup can accomplish what we expect PM to accomplish.
  3. In one of the games this weekend (can't remember which one), there was a no call on delay of game (clock showed zero) but they called encroachment. The defensive player jumped once the clock hit zero, timing his rush to the play clock. I couldn't believe that they ignored the delay of game in that instance.
  4. So ... I wonder if Maher had a history of cheating before last night
  5. All I could think is that the sideline called a TO? Can you do that to stop a play?
  6. Amazing that the whistles always blow right on the 2:00 minute warning, but they can't do the same with the play clock ...
  7. Been done before, just not by the Bills https://www.arrowheadpride.com/platform/amp/2015/1/28/7927399/how-many-times-has-a-team-beaten-both-super-bowl-teams
  8. Speaking as a theologian (pastor for 30 years), using X in words such as Xmas and Xian (or Xtian) is historically acceptable as it is using the Greek letter Chi which looks nearly identical to the English X. This has been done historically by theologians for probably at least a millennium. This is not the culture removing Christian things from society. Now back to Tua ...
  9. It's "Unsportsmanlike Conduct" for players to pull other players off of a pile scrambling for a fumble. That appears to be what the penalty was called for.
  10. My dad grew up "following" the Packers. He offered to buy tickets "the next time" the Packers came to town. Unfortunately I lived in Chicago at the time ... and my wife was pregnant. We drove all night, met the parents at Rich Stadium, watched the game, immediately drove home for work on Monday. Others have driven farther, but we did a 22 hour trip which included about 4 hours for the game.
