Peter Garrison

Luke 13:6.

Same with my pear tree.

Housekeeper advised, "En Febrero, consigue un palo y golpearlo."*

It worked.

* In February, get a stick and hit it.


Who is Luke?
What is this a reference to?
I think the words may be Latin.
Wait a minute...
Is this about Luke Perry from "Beverly Hills 90210?"
I was told he bought a place in Burlingame 16 months ago.
Is 134 his address?
Very interesting. Thank you Peter.
Sort of like a "Treasure Hunt" to find out where he lives.


You really are an idiot.


It takes an idiot to know an idiot.
Since we really do not know each other, the sum of idiots, to idiots cancels your Math.
Nevertheless, I love your comments, and look forward to more.


You are forgiven, Holy

Luke's Gospel should also be known as the gospel of forgiveness. Only in Luke's Gospel do we meet the penitent woman whose many sins were forgiven because of her great love (Lk 7:47). In contrast with James and John, who wanted to destroy a Samaritan town by fire (Lk 9:54), Luke shows Jesus exalting the virtues of the "good Samaritan" (see Lk 10:33). Jesus also exalted another unforgiven group when He ate with the hated tax collector Zacchaeus and gave him salvation (Lk 19:7ff).

Only in Luke's Gospel do we also meet the prodigal son, his forgiving father, and unforgiving older brother (Lk 15:11ff). This parable is probably the greatest revelation of God's way of forgiving. God forgives affectionately, graciously, and mercifully. He honors sinners by giving them exceptional gifts and a special celebration.
