So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Rumblings From Afar

Wikipedia/EA-6B Prowler


For several days constant rumblings have been coming from the direction of the naval air station on Whidbey Island which lies east of the border between Canada and Washington State in the USA. The air station is home to the EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler, two impressive kinds of military machines worthy of their names.

Every few minutes a sortie of some kind takes place. The rumblings continue throughout the day. The sound is an ominous and perhaps for some an intimidating low rumble—a growl, really!—that envelopes this region of the southern part of Vancouver Island. The distant thunder is as strong as the natural kind we only rarely experience in this neck of the woods. One cannot help but wonder if the thundering signals an approaching storm...?

As the crow flies, NAS Whidbey is approximately 40 kilometres from the Sacristy. The growl/rumble reminds me to be watchful and to pray for all those who defend freedom at home and abroad.
