I'm On Twitter!

Dear Friends,
I have finally entered the second decade of the 21st Century! I now have a Twitter account.
You can find me at
My user name is @banjopreacher.

I can't guarantee that I'll be tweeting multiple times throughout each day. But I do hope that Twitter will be another way that I can connect with friends, associates, and the world at large.

See you on Twitter!

Site Maintenance

Dear Friends,
It had been quite some time since I did site maintenance. So today I took a little bit of time to fix things up.

1. The html code for the visitor counter I entered in September 2006 had become a dead end link. Thus, I had to remove the old counter, and enter html code for a new counter. Since there was no way I could go back and retrieve the numbers from the old counter, I "reset" the title of the new counter to read Visitors Since May 2012.

2. Some of the links in the right-hand column had expired. So I updated those which I could, and deleted the rest. I may add and subtract links from the right-hand column from time to time as the spirit leads.

Well, I think that covers it for today. I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

A Couple of Banjo Jokes

Here are a couple of banjo jokes that I heard recently:

Q. What do you say to a banjo player in a three piece suit?
A. "Will the defendent please rise?"

Q. Why are banjo jokes so easy to understand?
A. So that the bass player will get them.

Daily Word: Acceptance

Here is the Daily Word for Wednesday, November 16, 2011. What a powerful affirmation! ♥cap



I accept and bless myself and others.

Acceptance is a powerful word, for it implies a willingness to listen and be open. Acceptance does not necessarily mean that I adopt another's point of view; it means I accept the right of another to have views different from my own. I accept people of different faiths, cultures and lifestyles. Each person is a child of God--divinely created and divinely guided.

I accept myself as well. I do not judge harshly my past mistakes or perceived short-comings. I give myself the freedom to make mistakes, to have a unique point of view and to continue to learn and grow as a spiritual being. By accepting myself and others, I embrace differences and celebrate the uniqueness of every individual.

Do not judge, so that you may not be judged.--Matthew 7:1

Hymn by St. Francis

Dear Beloveds,
Being as how today (Tuesday October 4, 2011) is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, I thought I would post this well known him written by Franky himself. ☺
Let us join in celebration of this great saint of the Faith! ♥ cap

All Creatures of our God and King
Francis of Assisi, circa 1225.
Trans. William H. Draper.

All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam!

O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thou rushing wind that art so strong
Ye clouds that sail in Heaven along,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou rising moon, in praise rejoice,
Ye lights of evening, find a voice!


Thou flowing water, pure and clear,
Make music for thy Lord to hear,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou fire so masterful and bright,
That givest man both warmth and light.


Dear mother earth, who day by day
Unfoldest blessings on our way,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
The flowers and fruits that in thee grow,
Let them His glory also show.


And all ye men of tender heart,
Forgiving others, take your part,
O sing ye! Alleluia!
Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,
Praise God and on Him cast your care!


And thou most kind and gentle Death,
Waiting to hush our latest breath,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou leadest home the child of God,
And Christ our Lord the way hath trod.


Let all things their Creator bless,
And worship Him in humbleness,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
And praise the Spirit, Three in One!

YouTube Shortcut

Dear Beloveds,

In yesterday's blog entry, I mentioned how the messages we preached for the WTJR-TV show The Pastor Speaks have both been posted to YouTube. I gave instructions for going to the YouTube web site and searching for our videos.

Well, it didn't occur to me until today that I could have just posted the direct link to our videos, thus eliminating the need for you to go and search for them. So here they are:

Clayton's message:

Rebecca's message:

If I've set this up correctly, all you should have to do is to click on the links, and you will go directly to the videos. If for some reason these links don't work (depending on what device you are using to read this post), you can copy the web address and then paste it into the Address or Location bar of your Internet browser. And if that still doesn't work...well, go back to yesterday's entry!

Once again, we thank you for your support!
Clayton & Rebecca

Here's how to watch. First, go to To watch Rebecca's video, type "Pastor Speaks Rebecca Peak" in the search box at the top of the page. The first video to appear in the Search Results will be Pastor Speaks 986 Rebecca Dunger Peak 09-04-11. Click on the box to watch. For Clayton's video, search for "Pastor Speaks Clayton Peak" which will lead you to Pastor Speaks 985 Clayton Peak 08-28-2011.
