The Blaenannerch Church.
It’s the 21st century now and it’s been awhile since we heard of nation wide outpourings of a sense of conviction over sin and a turning to the Lord in revival. It almost feels like no body prays for revival any more.
Speaking of which I recently went to Wales. Yes … the land of the Welsh revival of 1904! Oh yes again… I also had an opportunity to visit a church with an interesting historical root – the church at Blaenannerch. It’s pronounced differently by the Welsh and markedly differently by the English – Pahaha. Please just don’t ask me to explain.
Well, it is quite sobering what happened in that year in Wales. Listen to this account…
Thousands of people were saved. Public houses became almost empty. Men and women who used to waste their money getting drunk were now saving it and giving…

A while back in a post or a comment(I don’t remember where exactly), my friend ColorStorm,asked a question along the lines of: “Hey, how’s that pulse doing?” I sort of hijacked the phrase, stole it if you will, and now I use it fairly often. It has, as I was told, a certain shelf life.

Jesus Is the vine
Verse 1 – “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
Verse 2 – “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
Christ is our life-line, just as roots need nourishment to survive, we need Christ to survive this life and the next.Vines have to be pruned of dead wood, just as Christians have to be pruned of dead things in their lives.
Verse 3 – “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
There are two kinds of pruning: separating and cutting back branches. When we as Christians are pruned it will involve correction or discipline. This will strengthen our character and faith.
Verse 4 – “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear…
