~~~~~~~~~~~~Brief biography taken from various sources*

Rev. Kenneth Erwin Hagin (August 20, 1917 – September 19, 2003), known as the “father of the modern faith movement,” served in Christian ministry for nearly 70 years.

Kenneth E. Hagin was born with a deformed heart and an incurable blood disease. Those conditions left him paralyzed and bedridden at the age of 15. Everyone around him told him to prepare for death. But he got light on Mark 11:23–24, and that sparked faith for healing in his young heart. On August 8, 1934, God raised Kenneth off the sickbed—completely healed and whole! At that moment, God birthed something greater in Kenneth E. Hagin—a desire to see the lost saved and the sick made well. He began to preach and teach salvation and divine healing wherever he went.

Hagin began an itinerant ministry as a Bible teacher and evangelist in 1949. He was also a part of the Voice of Healing Revival in the U.S. in the 40s and 50s. In 1950, the Lord spoke to Kenneth E. Hagin and told him, “Go teach My people faith. I have taught you faith through My Word, and I have permitted you to go through certain experiences. You have learned faith both through My Word and by experience. Now go teach my people what I have taught you.” In 1967, he began a regular radio broadcast that continues today as Faith Seminar of the Air. In 1974, Hagin founded RHEMA Bible Training College USA, which now has 200 campuses in 46 nations. In 1979, he founded the Prayer and Healing School there to provide a place for the sick to come to “have the opportunity to build their faith.” Its Healing School continues to be held free of charge twice daily on the RHEMA campus. RBTC has trained over 40,000 graduates who reside and minister in more than 100 countries.

In 1968 Rev. Hagin published the first issues of The Word of Faith. That magazine, now produced nine times a year, has a circulation of over 200,000. The publishing outreach he founded, Faith Library Publications, has circulated worldwide more than 65 million copies of books by Rev. Hagin and several other authors. Faith Library Publications also has produced millions of audio and video teaching.

so still is my heart: a haiku

(reaching the waves, he became a rock.)

so still is my heartno more tears to cry

see here my heart bare and dry

so still and so brave

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”

(John 14:27; John 16:33)

a seagull at land’s end: a haiku

a seagull at land's endhiking to the sea

reaching an ocean instead

he soared as seagull

~~~~~~~~~~~~

 the flocks and the herds
    and all the wild animals,
the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
    and everything that swims the ocean currents.

O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!

(Psalm 8:7-9)

An eagle soars: three haiku (original)

an eagle soars 2 an eagle soarsTraveler turns around
Pursuing the still small voice
Look, an eagle soars.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Wherefore he comes round
Stirring waves of rushing sound
Cloud to cloud ahoy.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Swift as light he glides
Azure coast to coast he dives
Leaving jet behind.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Reading some wise words from several Nobel Literature Laureates, I list these below to remind myself during my momentary attempts at haiku, often after taking an interesting picture.

Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood. (T. S. Eliot)
Literature is a state of culture, poetry is a state of grace. (Juan Ramon)
I don’t think poetry comes from an education…I think that it comes from God. (Joseph Brodsky)
The experience of a poem is the experience both of a moment and of a lifetime. (T. S. Eliot)
I do not go in search of poetry. I wait for poetry to visit me. (Eugenio Montale)
