Christian Practices



I entreat to agree in the Lord,
To long as being your dearest;
Show that He is loved and adored,
Your heart and mind as sincerest.

Be in the same mind as the Lord,
Stand fast being your crown and joy;
So we can be in one accord,
In the living that we deploy.

I ask you to those who labor,
For teaching them of the Gospel;
Showing to neighbor to neighbor,
Inviting them to the temple.

Add their names to the book of life,
When they take Christ as their Savior;
Comfort them through apparent strife,
God will look on you with favor.

Rejoice upon the Lord always,
Let your moderation be known;
The Lord is nigh in coming days,
For laying down the cornerstone.

Be not anxious on anything,
But in everything say in prayer;
Supplication with thanksgiving,
Be made known unto God to share.

The peace of God which will exceed,
To all of your understanding;
To help your heart and mind succeed,
In spiritual comprehending.

Whatever is honorable,
As well as being just and pure;
To God is commendable,
Worthy of praise unto the core.

Behoove about all of these things,
What you have learned and have received;
And practicing for what it brings,
The God of peace you have believed.

Richard Newton Sherrer

I was born and raised on a farm in Pennsylvania. It was a small family farm that was handed down through 8 generations of Sherrer men until my father; Newton just could not make a living from it any longer. He thought that I would make a better living away from the farm. So, I decided to join the Air Force in 1969 upon graduating from high school. I gained quite a bit of experience and insight on life while in the service. Even though I was only stationed on the east coast of the US, my Air Force career took me to Germany and Korea. After 20 years wearing of the blue uniform, I decided going in a different direction and found myself becoming very diverse in many different fields. Something still seemed missing to me after being separated from the service for about 10 years. The Air Force was a way of life for me, but really missed life in Korea. I found myself changing careers again. Poetry was an interest of his since my days in high school. With returning to the Lord, I felt motivated to write of my Christian beliefs. I started looking at Bible verses and reflecting on my own personal experiences. The Bible was found to be as true today as to when the various books were written. I could see much of what the Bible is teaching us as valid as every in modern time. It felt only natural to me on using his personal experience based on Bible verses and see much of my own life written in the Scriptures. God inspires me what to write about though. I do not claim to be an expert on God or the Bible. I am just a Christian who has become enlightened to write poetic verses from the Holy Scriptures. more…
