Released from Exile!

August 29, 2009 at 9:07 pm 1 comment

Friday, a 13.5 hour train trip brought me back from forced exile in Hungary to Sfantu Gheorghe, Covasna County, my home in Romania.  With both of us exhausted, (Adolf from a business trip to Bucharest) Adolf rushed me from the train to the Notaris’ office for the signing of the papers for the sale of the house.  That only took 4 hours!  After paying 1/2 of the purchase price, I now own the house.  The contract stipulates very specific terms for finishing the house, paying the other half, occupying the house, etc.  Some good news – the money to pay for the kitchen cabinets has been provided.  More about that later.

The pearl in the field

Maybe all theology and religion could be summarized in one basic point:  is God, the Spirit, present,  or absent. Belief means it is there. Charity demonstrates it. Sin means it is absent. Egoism and hate demonstrate this; they are the result. Repentance means, you want to get  the Spirit back. Grace means, the Spirit has returned. Etcetera.


A river has to be both wide and clean.

What do we need most, psychology or religion ? Wrong question. Think of a river. (Good) psychology/ psychotherapy could make the stream broader and wider; the waterflow increases. (Good) religion could clarify the water, make it purer. Both are needed, both are important. They are complementary.


1. Man is the only real, the only genuine temple. The only place on earth where God can really live. But it/he can also degenerate to a ‘house for money-changers.’

2. Man is the landing zone for the supreme, for the highest of all. Alas, it is often pirate planes that are landing.

    Fabulous news! Very good indeed hearing from you! I’m so glad God is providing for your every need and giving you a house to live in and God is working out all the details of your stay in Romania. God is answering my prayers on your behalf to prosper you, provide for your every need, keep you safe, and pouring forth His kind, loving, and merciful favor with compassion upon you. I can hardly wait to see the photos of your new house … Anne’s house. [Smile] God is definitely good all the time even during “exiles” that we do not understand. Very cool belonging to the God family through Jesus Christ! May God continue blessing you.
    Love to you,
    Sherrie Hammond
