And now...the black keys of mini-JBJ Sermon Effectiveness Maximizer

And now...the black keys of mini-JBJ Sermon Effectiveness Maximizer

The above is just the white keys!

5 black keys, the 'weekdays' could be the 5 Cs of liturgy, some kind of a 5-phase church year (Advent, Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, Public Vindication/A. D. 70), or a 4-phase that leaves the middle blank, or a 3-phase, etc.

Maybe the latter ones could be different colors.

The key, to use a pun, is that this comprehensives engenders timing, particular timing of what to do when, just as the whole engenders the parts, just as the Lord's Day is the head of the week.

Love in King Jesus,

Mini Sermon Effectiveness Maximizer for Congregation Members

Mini-JBJ Sermon Effectiveness Maximizer For Congregation Members

We start with responding to the spirit, Spirit, essence, gist of the sermon (series). Here we have Psalms of Ascent.

there are 7 days in the week. We want each member to be 'in covenant,' multi-perspectivally, with the whole Bible, understanding and applying.

There are 3 'melodies,' one could call them.


We start with the heptamerous chiasm of Creation. It reververberates through the Bible. We could add Bull's CDATMCG, etc. Creation, Division, Ascension (!), Testing, Maturation, Conquest, Glorification.

This prevails until the Ascension (!) is pictured, Rev. 5:12-7:12. From the former to the latter there is a retuning in a was reminiscent of circle of fifths, but not quite, JBJ says, plus instruments are added and 'ho' is before each quality of Jesus. This is how we got our days of the week, I think JBJ said?

1234567 becomes 4152637. Sun is 4th from earth, moon is first, etc. 2 and 3, Mercury and Venus are switched. JBJ is thinking speed has something to do with it, I'm thinking 'good' is not pronounced on Day 2 until Day 3 could be in effect.

So now we have the creation 7-fold sequence and our present days of the week. Sun fits in well, for it will come with healing in its wings, other things, defnintively, we are not 'under,' but we need to remember them. JBJ has said (this is a mini-JBJ) that the whole old covenant (or testament?) was under the the moon.

Then I take the odd path of psalmodically responding to the retuning--one would ring changes on clothing and attributes etc., but JBJ again says that the qualities/clothing we see on Jesus at the beginning are on the Bride at the end, and in Him all things cohere, and other hints indicate that we can say we are under a new, newer than SundayMonday..., 4152637.

I retune and flip, for we are the ones who have turned the world upside down, and see Magnificat.

End up with 8531642, with is nice, for 2 is Exodus in the first 7 books, and we must carry our cross, and Jesus says he is going to Jerusalem to accomplish his 'decease,' or 'exodos' in Greek.

And, as there are 3 changes from 1234567 yo 4152637 (tuning, 'ho,' and instruments) and since we have two more BIG DAys, Pentecost and A. D. 70, I have named these new days after the churches in Revelation, as typological, since they are symbolically showing the eras of the Bible.

[Some stuff is too odd for now].

'8' really represents more, for it is the 12Day (The Great Day, Last Judgment) coming to us from God's future, plus the Octave (the 8th Day, Resurrection of Jesus) and 7 Laodicea, all put together.

So on this Wednesday, we had a chord with Pergamos (853...) and with the Third Day.

What I've come to by working through this is Ascents/Songs, and Songs/Ascents.

The 7 eras are differently expressed in 'Crisis, Opportunity...' and 'A Brief Reader's Guide'. For our purposes, Garden (To Abraham), Prison (To Moses), Wilderness (to David), Kingdom (to Elijah?), Remnant and Exile (to Rebuilding), World Mission, and Jesus' Day.

So Wilderness/Pergamos, 3rd Day, and WotansTag (Mercury) are the notes of the cord of the mini-JBJ.

More later. I have two Peterson books now, they just came today.

Love in King Jesus,


This is part one of the linguistic method I mentioned, in which one learns the conjugations by being given the changed element in the sentence, and having to supply the proper corresponding verb, for instance.

'I go' is given. Yo voy, in Spanish.
You is the new element. In English, 'go,' in Spanish 'va'. Etc.

So, if ERH is right and the first 1000 years was such that all important things happened in the church, I have responded to that by saying that the liturgy was the application of the covenant to the heavens above.

Then the next 1000 COULD be characterized as the covenant applied to the waters under the earth, the scientific method. Newton sees (or is hit by) the apple, bringing him into a new situation. He confesses that he cannot now understand it, but is reasurred that he can later. He hears from the books--previous research, the book of nature. The hypothesis is tested in a sample (related to communion?) and then the theory is taken out.

I call the covenant applied to the earth beneath (people, made of dust) allelonode (all, lay, loan, oh, day) for one anothering song. Compare to catechism. It's an additional layer.

Love in King Jesus,

PS: My Greek is surely deficient. I just used Blue Letter Bible cut and paste. It's a PICTOR: Proleptic Interactive Covenantal Typological One-Anothering Recapitulation.

'Hartman Code': From My APAD (A Page A Day)

Hartman Code.

1--Derived from LISTENING to JBJ, ERH, Jay Abraham and more. The ear gate is much more powerful than the eye gate.
2--Patterns to patterns. (Kurzweil is a 'patternist'). This applies to Rhyming Covenant Sequences.
3--JBJ' dynamics, per Leithart in Constantine: Maturity, Redemptive History, Holy War.
4--Calendars and Holidays and Ritual.
5—It’s Early Days.
6--Above the angels, in Christ. Eph. 2:6.
7--My view is that psalmodic response is the ultimate theological dynamic (JBJ: ‘Church Music in Chaos’). That is, we need to find the gist/essence/spirit of what God commanded in that situation, to find out how to apply His Word in a new situation. This is similar to the three couplets in Psalm 1:1: walketh, counsel of the ungodly; standeth, way of sinners; seated, seat of scornful. They all have the same gist/essence/spirit, but are applied differently in new situations, as God wants us to do.

So, 'without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins' could be the gist, and sacrificial animals the way this was shown before Jesus, and we remind God the Jesus shed His blood for us in the Lord's Supper?

(Leithart's book on Constantine holds that the baptism of Rome was Constantine's ending of animal sacrifices [and gladiatorial games]).
8--Surely others see me better than I myself. Proverbs 18:17.
9—1st/Transcendent: Rhyming Covenant Sequences (30 in the Calendar). 2nd/Hierarchy: Lectionary Historical., both Core History of Humanity’s Childhood and additional examples such as America 500 years before now and 500 years after now. 3rd/Ethics: The Symphony of Peace/History, as art form of next era (compare scientific method for last 1000 years-TSP/H a new layer as covenant applied to Earth Beneath--people. SciMeth: Water Under, Liturgy: Heavens Above). 4th/Oaths and Sanctions: SuperCalendarHOST—Houe Of Singing Times. 5th/Succession: M’aidezMaydayMaeDay80, now developed into Memory Palace Discipling of Communities.

Love in King Jesus,


Dear ____: You wrote '...unraveling the Hartman Code; that seems to be more where my gifts lie.'

I believe that you are absolutely correct.

This is the most important thing you can do at which you are most difficult to replace.

If I were Farrel (sp?) and you Calvin, I would say: 1--Get to North's 10 free videos on monetizing YouTube. 2--Then get to his recommendations on using WordPress for the website. 3--Practice with CtR's site and YouTube. 4--When you are ready, and it will take a while, we should get together and video 'my stuff' and put all kinds of material which I have that you have not seen on the website. 5--You would subscribe to North's site, for he teaches how to make money, how to monetize. 6--We'd have some kind of model deal that we could use to help others, those who will carry on, make $ too. HAAG is an obvious thing, calendars make millions (HOST), How To Disciple A Nation and/or A Community is a key, etc. 6--Switzer's 52 ways to make money (Guerrilla Marketing) would come into play.

When you are ready....

Love in King Jesus,

PS: Yes, you are right.

Remnant and Exile and Psalms of Ascent APAD

The correct goal in every area of life is to target something small and achieve it. Then build on this small victory. HT: GKN

Today I think about how to apply the lessons of the Remnant and Exile period to Psalms of Ascent, especially 121.

From my APAD (A Page A Day).

A Page A Day 3

To be sent from my "APAD" A Page A Day Three. The 1-49, and what is the Leviticus of Leviticus? The third book in the third set of 7. Is it Jeremiah-Lamentations? And what difference does it make? It makes the difference that the whole begets the parts, that comprehensive beauty gives us timing. I answer questions that are based on the answers I only give to questions I'm the only one asking.

Start of Accepting Responsibility To Steward With Christ

A Page A Day 2: Two Key Quotes, Two Symbols, Update

Symbol 1: When the calendar for the year is a 7x7grid, that says something in Symbol, the Language, about Jubilee, that Jesus fulfilled in their ears, Luke 4.

Symbol 2: When the days of the week are named after the social firmament, Ephesians 2:6, that says something in Symbol, the Language, that differs from days of the week named after gods/planets of the natural solar system, Genesis 1:16.

Update: To show the tuning and retuning of the universe, have 3 sets of sequences for the week, each one shedding ‘light’ on the sermon topic. 1-7 would be Days of Creation, and attributes of Jesus in Revelation 5-12, before the Ascension is pictured. The second set would be these attributes ‘retuned’ into a different order, with the present days of the week (English: Sunday, Monday, etc.) and the gods/planets. The third set would be this 4152637 retuned to ‘8’531642, with the days named after eras of the Bible—the one in the place of Sunday has 3 components including the future. An example of the latter is at the end of yesterday’s note.

[A list of future APADs will be tomorrow]

Quote 1 from Rosenstock-Huessy (some free books of his online at
If you
ever in your life had a bright idea, or a new instinct, or a
new change of heart,
Sir, make this the cornerstone of your understanding
of the universe and you
will understand that the universe begins with creation. And
it ends in incarnation, because that's the experience of every potent and creative
man in the world.
But you look outside and try to deduce by your little brain,
not by your experience of your heart how the world begins, and how it should be
run. You'll never
solve it, gentlemen. You'll remain a selfish, inarticulate
animal. If the spirit moves
you, you will see how simple
things are, gentlemen. Love begins, and hope
keeps you going, and faith. And in the end, your grandchildren
will bless you.

Quote 2: This from Clint Gardner’s page on ERH, here: (Were Clint to upload Chapter 5 of Beyond Belief, we would know more about the structure of the revolutions of the West.)

"The history of the human race is written on a single theme: How does love become stronger than death? The composition is recomposed in each generation by those whose love overcomes murdering or dying. So history becomes a great song, Augustine's Carmen Humanum. As often as the lines rhyme, love has once again become stronger than death. This rhyming, this connecting, is men's function on earth. But that this is our function we have only known since the birth of Christ." - Sociology II, p. 759

[This is the seed of the first part of my 5-point covenant life work, the Transcendent. Hierarchy is Lectionary Historical, Ethics is The Symphony of Peace/History, Oaths and Sanctions: House Of Singing Times-CalendarHOST, Succession is M’aidezMayDayMaeDay80 and the Discipling Heuristic Memory Palace that has grown from working it.]

How Maximize Sermon Application Thru The Week


Benefits: A comprehensive study that results in a great conclusion: What to do now!
The sermon began a series on discipleship using Psalms of Ascent with Psalm 120.
Let’s take the ascension theme through the days of the week first.
BUT, these are the days of the week of the retuned firmament of creation. (1)
These days of the week are named for churches in Revelation, generally, and match up with eras of The Core History of Humanity’s Childhood, the Bible. At the end, we will psalmodically respond to each and all.

Lord’s Day –Sunday--/Whole, including Laodicea (apostasy in Jesus’ time (2)), and the total foreshadowing of all history, we get the sermon.
“Pilgrim Psalms: Deceit and Violence”
Psalm 120
1In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me. 2Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue. 3What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue? 4Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper. 5Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar! 6My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace. 7I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
Some themes: Sung as ascending to Jerusalem for one of the three mandatory feasts for males over 20 (thus warriors). Appeal for relief from suffering. Imprecation? Jesus did in Matthew 23, Woes match Beatitudes. Discipleship (in pastoral email announcement).
We will take Ascension, and Battle as our themes on this APAD: A Page A Day.
Monday/Sardis, Remnant and Exile. Daniel ascended to lead two empires. Tuesday/Pergamos, Wilderness. Sinai’s ascension, and ascension offering as part of sacrificial system. Wednesday/Ephesus, Garden: Adam to Abraham. Adam did not ascend. Thursday/Philadelphia, World Witness: _____. Friday/Thyatira, Kingdom: A House of Prayer for All Nations. Saturday/Smyrna, Prison: Abram to Moses—Joseph rules.
CONCLUSION: We prepare for battle. We need a SitRep (Situation Report). It is not only an individual battle, but a part of the Holy War, unto maturation, through redemptive history. What is our part, now? What is our plan, now? Discipling whom? As they ascended to battle on the Mountain of Festival Assembly, so do we. More to come.
(1) Explained here: Social firmament (Eph. 2:6) is 8531642 not 4152637. See Rev. 5:12 and 7:12 for retuning+ at Jesus Ascension. We get the gist and retune more with each ‘Day,’ such as Pentecost and A. D. 70.

Naming The Days In A Rightimely Way For Our Era

Naming the days in a rightimely way for our era
by Charles Howard Hartman on Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 2:57am

1. Days, Knights, and Eras.

1a. Retuning names of days of week to avoid practicing astrology.

1b. Rhyming the covenant sequence creating knights to help acting according to the 5th Word.

1c. Ensampling the LectionaryHistorical from A. D. 70 to present to make a platform for covenantal sequences being tied together.

1a, again. A wise one has said that the Israel of Old and the New Israel conquered the empires based on astronomy/astrology by worshipping every 7th day. This amen said that The True God made the heavens above, the earth beneath, and the waters under the earth, and all that in them is, in 6 days and all very good. The True God made that on which you base your religion (and thus your empire).

We should do something similar, showing the true firmament and true causation.

Let’s start with the names of the days of the week*.

The names of the days presently used in America are a retuning of the sequence 1234567, by a ‘circle of fifths’ method, adding the names of planets/gods of planets. We can do better, by psalmodically responding to the retuning by re-retuning, and by using other principles of the retuning shown at the Ascension, Rev. 5:12-7:12.

In the series of attributes of Jesus in Rev. 7:12, compared to 5:12 there is a retuning, and a particularizing, and are instruments added to voices. See Jordan’s commentary, available from Biblical Horizons, and

This would be similar to the geocentric order (distance from the earth in any direction) of the planets being retuned by a circle of 5ths method from 1-Moon, 2—Venus, 3—Mercury, 4—Sun, 5—Mars, 6—Jupiter, 7—Saturn.

1234567 becomes 4152637. [The 2 and 3 will possibly be explained later. It could be speed, it could be that Day 2 of Creation was not pronounced good until after Day 3, thus tying them together. This is left for later, the principle is clear. It may be ‘fuzzy logic’.]

Start with the last in the series 1234567, and count five, thus 71234.

4 is the first in the next series. Sun—day.

From 4, go 45671, to get the second in the series, Moon-day.

From 1, go five, 12345, Mars-day, or Tiw or Tir in German equivalent, thus Tues-day.

Continue on.

Thus, with each BIG DAY, such as Ascension, there is a retuning, plus. (The aforementioned change to an individual ‘the’ in front of each attribute, and the instruments, perhaps.)

HERE’S THE QUESTION: What about Pentecost, what about A. D. 70—are they BIG DAYS? If so, what changes should be made to get us to names that would name the firmament (the stars/planets are a firmament) aright, and in the right for the time in which we are? Rightimely.

Well, 4152637 becomes 2461357. By a series of moves, I propose that the rightimely names would be flipped, for we are they who have turned the world upside down, and we would get 7531642. [This works out well in some calendrical uses, having 2 as the last, for as we are imago Christi, we do must accomplish our exodus (sic, Gr.), and so the list of the first 7 books, re-retuned, ends in Exodus.

But, to be rightimely, we must name the firmament aright, and the firmament is now, after A. D. 70, Christ and His Church, or better, churches, as in Revelation, Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, Laodicea.

But the letters were written to warn the Great Church, Jersualem. [The churches symbolically represent 7 eras in the Bible, and are applicable to our ages, since our ages will be in convenant sequences, and our ages are the application/working out of the Bible, the total definitive revelation.]

Two more things to go. Laodicea is changed to Kol, an acronym for ‘kol’—what God did from Sinai, Octave (the 8th), and Laodicea.

That’s one.

The second thing to do is to symbolically say, show in the Language, Symbol, that causation is from the future also. That the past and present cause the future is untrue. The present is caused by the past and the future.

Thus, the first day of the sheba/week is KolBmoY. ‘moY’ is ‘yom’ or Hebrew for ‘day,’ backward. Pronounced ‘coal yummm’ Yes, we consume/eat time. The same that breathed life into Adam spoke the Days.

‘B’ is the first letter of the Bible, Beth, the house we live in at present, amending the Bible, that starts with B. [I’ve claimed that the words of the letters of the first word of the Bible is a liturgy, forms of speech being added. House! [Command] We Bow to the Head and Listen [Subjective response]. We Eat, the life and death narrative. We carry our Cross, going out. B-R-Sh-T.]

So, the days of the rightimely sheba/week are: KolBmoY, SardisBmoy, PergamosBmoY, EphesusBmoY, PhiladelphiaBmoy, ThyatiraBmoY, SmyrnaBmoY.

Kol, yumm! Sardis, yumm! Pergamos, yumm! Ephesus, yumm! Philadelphia, yumm! Thyatira, yumm! Smyrna, yumm!

Psalm 34:8.

The ears of the Bible related to the 7 churches: Garden, Prison, Wilderness, Kingdom, Exile, Restoration, Jesus’ Day. Or: Jesus’ Day, Exile, Wilderness, Garden, Restoration, Kingdom, Prison. Or, Judges, Deuteronomy, Leviticus, Genesis, Joshua, Numbers, Exodus. [In HouseOfSingingTimes, various sequences are shown, of various lengths and orders.]

So on what now is named Sunday/The Lord’s Day, we are given the ‘whole’, on wnin Monday we pray and act according to the wisdom of the Exile Era—Abram-Moses. Wnin Tuesday: Wilderness. Wnin Wednesday: Garden. Wnin Thursday: Restoration. Wnin Friday: Kingdom. Wnin Saturday: Prison.

This is a liturgy. We come into the whole, representatively. We confess our sins, that we have been in the wilderness. We are restored, and restored. The Kingdom is ours, and we are to go to those in prison?

Thus we show the rigttimely true heavenly and earthly situation, as we have done in the past by worshipping every 7 days. We also make it such that people will ask us questions, so we can be 1 Peter 3: 15, ready always to give an answer—and we’ll be provoking questions.

Much more remains to be done. Note that Kol includes an 8th, thus Earth, and thus amending that Christ rose on the 8th Day.

*or better, sheba—7, oath. We make the week a covenant sequence.

With meekness and fear,

Chuck Hartman (Charles Howard Hartman on Facebook,
PS: 1b and 1c to come later.
PPS: Great power flows into the field of time at the death of a man. Echoing that, to work from the end to now should give great power, thus ‘moY’. Christians live backwards, some say, from/in the light of the Great Day.
PPS: Exclamation points may be added at any point, for a name is an imperative.

The Fulfilling of the Law is Love

Since love is the fulfilling of the law, then the fulfilling of the law is love. In other words, the Hebrew Scriptures are GOOD and we should apply them psalmodically in the new situation. Let's take theft. Many times it could be paid off (to make the stolen-from whole) by 2x and much or 4x. Why then do we put people in prison? Where is a kinsman (we are all brothers, right?) who will pay the 4x, and then let the thief work out the payment over time, training him.

Give me other examples, and I'll give you more application. And if I can't, it's time for the Church as a whole to have committees of correspondence that share wisdom that had been applied when people have come to Her for help.

Love in King Jesus,

PS: In other words, God is good, and gave us these things for our own benefit. Satan says otherwise now, as he did in the Garden. The Law/Torah was meant to make us all whole, and Jesus fulfilled ALL of them, perfectly, righteously, and now we are to apply such as we each carry our respective crosses. But we don’t study Torah reverently. Should we not copy out our own Torah, since we are kings in The King?



God commands us. Take care of the widows (and widowers) and the fatherless (orphans).
James 1:27 (Summing up much Biblical teaching).
27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
We are failing in our response. Search ‘elder abuse,’ ‘nursing home abuse,’ ‘child abuse,’ consider abortion.
DeMar sums it up:
Many churches help youngsters via a ceremony in which another couple agrees to help the child being baptized, were the parents to die or become unable. These helpers are sponsors or godparents. Thus the church helps the orphans/fatherless. (In some churches, the whole congregation pledges help.)
Doing the same for eldsters as for youngsters would be a good idea. Eldsters will become befuddled, weakened, and vulnerable. Here’s a link to a ceremony that could be adapted for Godparents for Eldsters. (The link is broken, but I have a posted a copy the link to which I will append at the end).
The Godparent for Eldster should be the prayer and action coordinator. Keep loved ones OUT of the nursing home, it at all possible, for once they are in there, it is almost too late. Family should help, but families fail. The civil magistrate should help, but the civil magistrate fails. Search ‘Doctors 3rd leading cause of death’.* Churches need more articulated structures of helping, even though there are pastors and deacons and elders, etc. The situation is too often morally anarchic, despite good efforts by many. It’s like this situation in the bigger arenas:
Surely honoring one’s father and mother (those who have come before) is linked to a better future: Deuteronomy 16Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
If they have waxed poor, it is even more important. Matt. 25:40.
How shall we respond to these commands and wisdom? It would best be done in one church, and spread from there, church to church. It could be done by a parachurch ministry. Eventually, profit-making companies could be formed, as insurance companies grew from mutual aid association.
The first thing to do is to pray about it, and plan in your church. The ‘Godparents for Eldsters’ website and Facebook page, upcoming, should help each help one another.
The origin of this plan came from the traumas endured by my mother. From that was made a memory palace, which retraced the chronology and the confession of the ostensibly Christian community in which it happened, on the streets of the town square. Each year as we move through Guilt, Grace, Gratitude (and GoForth+), new helps are given in answer to this prayer.
{This conference is mostly in my own head, though it has had good consequences}. Last year we featured Dr. Thomas Szasz” ‘Ceremonial Chemistry’ in our virtual conference. Next year we will have the Hebrew letter ‘he’ and psalmodic response. One year we had Ibsen’s ‘An Enemy of the People,’ and Dr. Stockman. Here’s a short video explaining it: (@ 2 minutes in, history conducted) [The memory palace is confessional, 80 days inclusive after Easter. The conferences are July 4. One year they were the same day. Solo so far, has been the practice, but Rescue Teams of friends came from it, and Knights Of Helping Elderly Neighbors, and wonderfully, ‘Godparents…’!
Love in King Jesus,

Charles Howard (Chuck) Hartman 1404 Broadway, Pella, Iowa 50219,, also on Facebook, and More to come.
The Ceremony is here, pending better placement. I cannot find Pastor Monk for response. It will be taken down at his request.

PS: This is a very important framework. Who does rule the land? Why are actions such as Godparents for Eldsters even more important? Why are the words ‘father and mother’ also typological, representing history?

*medical professionals

Szasz’ timeline in ‘Ceremonial Chemistry’: From end of Civil War to early 20th C., taxes on alcohol = ½ to 2/3 of US internal revenue. Then Income Tax Amendment, then AMA comes out for Prohibition, then Prohibition, then doctors make millions in the next few years writing prescriptions for whiskey. And recent events are also political medicine.

Some good organizations:
There are many more.

Day of the Lord Super Bowl Sunday Rosenstock-Huessy

The quarterback was invented to show the Old West cowboy, and settler. So this game, as are many celebrations, is for our children to show that we have conquered, in this case, we have made a garden out of a wilderness. But who is wise enough to tell us that, who has studied and applied the work of Rosenstock-Huessy. [And we live in a time of multiple covenant sequences running at the same time. Work is like unto the empires, community celebrations are tribal, education is Greek, and the ecclesiastical calendar is Israel.] {Since the Reverser of Trends, Jesus, the church has become the new Israel, without exclusiveness, the Christian nation-states are the new empires, without slavery, and we are engaged in the tribal time now, so as to do it without perpetual war. The Greeks are companions, and the worst of all}., online: Multiformity of Man. Day of the Lord Super Bowl Sunday Rosenstock-Huessy

Covenant Renewal Worship--Doing It Better?


This is based on the implications for covenant renewal for Big Projects of Families. The families would be very specific on their covenant goals, e. g., colonizing Mars for King Jesus.

Now, how would you sum up the covenant we renew in 25 words or less, and do we specify it as we could?

A couple of options: 1--I will be their God and they will be my People. 2--Matthew 28:18 ff. Going, disciple all nations, baptizing them into the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them all that I have commanded.

Now if we were a band (Saul joined the band--with instruments--of the prophets) but I mean orchestra, we would have instructions. If we were a military troop, and we are, we would have a briefing on the war situation and our part. Hmmm.

Pella Re-Covenanted?


I had proposed that we do an Acts 7, or other such Biblical process whereby history is recapitulated so as to bring us to what we should do now, namely, since we started as a covenant unit with the emigration, and since history has driven us to a breakup of that because technology increases the space over which we can operate, decreases the time it takes to do things, and breaks up the old community, that we were in crisis, resolvable by re-covenanting in a more glorious way, as the Temple was more glorious than the Tabernacle.

One wise one asked: One possible outcome: as you've talked about technology reducing distance and breaking down old communities - will Pella /be/ recovenanted? or is the town of 10,000 too small now.

But that's just an offhand question.

Maybe it's a recovenanted Pella of those who are 'Pella at heart'

We could be small, yet large. An example. Typological. We have advantages in that we were covenanted to begin with. (What was the Scholte covenant?). So we could re-covenant, as you say (and please give me 25 words or so on that, that could be expanded?) and export this all around, as we help missionaries, etc. The covenant and the process of the memory palace history square is what we would teach.. Love in King Jesus, Chuck Pella at heart, then would be covenantal. Transitions Towns is a way this is happening, locally. And the breakdown of organizations such as the Soviet Union and these USA.

Liturgical Warfare and Super Bowl

We're in a war. Christ has conquered and we are mopping up. The key to this war is prayer (and action) and the key to these is that we renew our covenant with the Lord on the Lord's Day, Sunday we call it now. When we only get together to hear some sermon and to sing some songs, rather than responding to the Spirit of what God does, we are not engaging in liturgical warfare, we are not preparing our people by transforming them from those filthy with sin to those warrior bride members who have on the full armor of God and who are adorned as a bride for her husband. Revelation, for example, is such a liturgical warfare in which God sums up the whole Bible, tells what happens A. D. 30-70, and this process is what continues to happen, in form, until The Great Day. Word and Sign go together. Most churches don't even celebrate the Lord's Supper weekly.
Now, we are made for this war, Holy War being one of the 3 main arcs of the Bible, along with redemptive history and maturation.
So, war breaks out elsewhere, in some symbolic form, and this is football on Sunday, for instance.
Jeff Meyers' book on worship is a good start. Here it is free on Google Books--also on Amazon.'s+Service&source=bl&ots=kKRtAc83sp&sig=LqaD10RbN5wVgelCqkbAmYHHhBg&hl=en&ei=mUBPTa_6GoHGlQf7h5w8&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CCoQ6AEwAg#v=onepage&q&f=false
I'd love to write more. I pray this is helpful. Love in King Jesus, Chuck

Eldercare and sponsors/godparents.

I've been thinking about eldercare, since our family had bad experiences. Could the church help? Per James 1:27 and the 'sponsor' institution (godparents elsewhere), I'm thinking that Godparents for Eldsters might be good. I know that some social service agencies said to us that 'It's always the daughters-in-law that call'. Relatives are too close. Idea: Sometime around 60 a church member would get a 'godparent' to help with elder issues--not a lawyer, or a doctor, but definitely bot to be there in case the relatives are missing, and to be at the right 'aesthetic distance', and for prayer, etc. I know the whole congregation and the pastor and all believers are to help, but this might be a specific help.

Let Us Now Catechize


Benefit: No Hartman children in home, adopt Pella. This liability is unto we would lead.
Benefit: Paradigm for discipling any community.
Benefit: Consummation greater than creation.
Benefit: Memory Palace, so we/they/all remember—strongly.
Benefit: Some improvement each year. [1750 @ 2%/year = great Western prosperity].
Benefit: Proven over 5 years on micro-scale.
Benefit: Be what you are, Christian community! Community ‘writes’ it. Tulip Time.
Benefit: Psalmodic response. Get the spirit of first, glorify it by applying as in Psalm 1:1.
Benefit: This shows the advantage of Covenant Renewal Worship, for we are applying the covenant structure to a community over a long time, once per year, so as to transform it as we are transformed by CRW.

From Pella Books, east. At SW corner of Square, start Guilt Street. At SE corner, north onto Grace Street. At NE corner, turn west onto Gratitude Street. At NW corner, turn south onto GoForth+ Street (hat tip:JH). End at Pregnancy Center, crossing SW corner.

This is a Memory Palace. As we go along spatially, we remember. What do we remember? Structure of covenant(s).

Big Idea Applied: Pella started in covenant. [What was it?] Over time, and as a response, Pella has changed. But the starting covenant can be glorified, made more, were we to understand and apply history. Any new technology increases the space over which one can act, decreases the time it takes to effect change, and destroys the old group.

Test: Put the parts of our CRW onto this square. It would ‘rhyme’ differently. We are called in the space between Pella Books and SW corner, Guilt is handled on Guilt Street, but the Grace part (word and sacrament) would occupy, it seems to me {Proverbs 18:17] the complete next two blocks, so that Gratitude and GoForth+ Street overlap.

Once one has gone through the transforming CRW structure, a fact is done, and this fact leads to the new Torah, command. We can tell this new command. Jordan: Law, Lyric, Evaluation, Fact. ERH too.

What threads would run along this history square, this memory palace. Community, Business, Religion, Education. Both locally and as the ‘outside’ impacted Pella. We need @ 7 turning points for each. It could be a cooperative effort.

This can be a paradigm for discipling any community, for our history space/memory palace is nested into larger ones, as Russian dolls are nested, and the Big One is from Creation to Consummation. These USA, Western Civilization, Christendom….
Next Step: Souvenir History of Pella. What 7?
Has been done with eldercare, producing one per year, over 5 years. Rescue Team, Cure Team, Godparents for Eldsters, Knights Of Helping Elderly Neighbors, and this expansion, in ‘He’/HEY! Year of Psalmodic Response. More elsewhere.
