Deborah Kendrick loves to attend Broadway musicals even though she is blind and always struggles to understand the setting and the movements of the characters onstage. Recently, however, she attended a play that used D-Scriptive, a new technology that conveys the visual elements of the stage production through a small FM receiver. A recorded narration, keyed to the shows light and sound boards, describes the set and the action as it unfolds onstage. Writing in The Columbus Dispatch, Deborah said, If you ask me if I saw a show last week in New York, my answer is yes . . . I genuinely, unequivocally mean that I saw the show.
Her experience struck me as a vivid illustration of the Holy Spirits role in our understanding of Gods Word. Just before Jesus went to the cross, He told His followers that the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you (John 14:26).
As we open the Bible to read or study, the Spirit of Truth is with us to guide us into all truth (16:13). On our own we are blind, but through the guidance of Gods Holy Spirit we can see.
Read: John 14:15-27

Hi! Here lurking for now .....
Good evening, Mayor, and thank you for today’s sustenance for body and soul.
Woo hoo! My old stomping grounds!! Looks a lot different now.
I was stationed at the old Convair facility.
It was General Dynamics an Navelex at the time.
Now the entire facility is Spawar.
Loads of history and mystery.
G’Day, Janey...((HUGS))...thanks for popping in. Happy lurking.
Good evening, Jim...a bit different over the years, huh?
When I lived in Tidewater Virginia, they always said that Norfolk was the largest base in the Navy. This says San Diego. Which one is correct?
The best museum I have ever seen outside the Smithsonian is the museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola.
Good evening, Myrddin...thank you for sharing your Dad’s experience.
Looks warm there. I am about to get my snow shovel covered with snow again. 24 inches last week and could get that much again.
It is all Al Gore’s fault.
This article says Naval Station San Diego is the largest on the WEST coast. Norfolk’s naval station is the largest in the world, as I understand.
