Blessing the City

Proverbs 11:11

By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted,
but by the mouth of wicked it is overthrown.

The blessing of the upright may be the blessing that the upright give to the city. Thus, we bless the city when we pray for her, when we befriend our neighbors, pitch in to help the neighborhood, vote for good leaders, even run for public office. We bless the city by living upright lives and thus not contributing to delinquency, disorderly conduct, and unethical treatment of others. Read more »

Wagons and Cones

We need your wagons - three of them, to be precise.

Here is what's going on. The experience of the past month monitoring on-street parking is that where there is a cone, proper parking will be observed. To cover the parking in our permitted area, we need to place 40 cones. Yes, 40.

Righteousness in the City

Proverbs 11:10

When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices,
and when the wicked perish there are shouts of gladness.

Is this proverb really true? It seems to us that the city mocks the righteous and exalts the wicked. But then, what we have in mind is the city mocking our morals. Righteousness, of course, includes morality, but the focus here is on that aspect of righteousness in which the welfare of the city is being sought.

Map Maker Needed

I need help and it occurred to me that a homeschool student or students might be the one to give it. I have made maps to be used for volunteers and sextons who are placing cones on the streets. The problem is that they are not very good maps. Is there someone who could make five maps for me? Each map would feature a zone that shows where the cones go; one map would show the whole parking area.

Let me know if you would take this on or want to learn more about the project. Email me or call at 215.735.7688x245.

War Horse Tickets

Vanessa Fiori has a chance to purchase group tickets at a group rate to War Horse at the Academy of Music, on Broad Street, for Tuesday, November 20, or Wednesday, November 21. Normal tickets run about $156 and up; group tickets are $70, which includes all extra charges. The seats for Wednesday evening are far better than those for Tuesday evening. She needs 15 people to make a group rate and already has about five or six people going. They are flexible as to the evening and will leave it up to the response.

Deerfield Recital

Friday evening, October 5, 7:30 pm, Deerfield (NJ) Presbyterian Church will begin its new recital series with a wonderful quartet of singers, including Esther Jane Kulp, soprano, Sondra Payne, mezzo soprano, Nathaniel Fletcher, tenor, and Rob Joubert, bass. Evelyn Larter will accompany them on the piano in a delightful program of operatic arias and Broadway, popular, and sacred songs. There will be solos, duets, and quartets, and no charge for admission—there will be a freewill offering. Afterwards the audience can meet the artists at a reception. Directions can be found at

Memorial Service

A memorial service for Bill Maun, who died September 28, will be held Sunday, October 14, 3:00pm at tenth. It will be followed by a light reception.

Wise Righteousness

Proverbs 11:9

With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor, 
but by knowledge the righteous are delivered.

Jesus is the best example of proving this proverb. He was followed by men bent on destroying his reputation and even seeking his life by either laying before him verbal traps or outright slandering him. And yet, because of his wisdom born out of righteousness, he always had a ready answer that rebutted slander and even exposed their foolishness.

Art Benefit for David Sacks

David Sacks, a gifted photographer who lives and works in the Philadelphia area, has advanced cancer. There is an art market this Friday to raise money for him and his family. For more information, click here.  David is a friend and colleague of Greg Berzinsky.

Walking into Trouble

Proverbs 11:8

The righteous is delivered from trouble,
and the wicked walks into it instead.

The wicked does not read warning labels. He ignores danger signs. He doesn't look both ways when crossing the street and prefers to take shortcuts through alleys and dark parks. He does not think wisely about danger, not so much thinking that he will be safe, but not thinking about the subject at all. He just acts, doing whatever pops in his mind. Read more »

Aitken's Bible

The Providence Forum invites you to the dedication of the Official State Historical Marker commemorating America's First Bible by colonial printer, Robert Aitken. This free event, on the 230th Anniversary of the publication of the Aitken Bible, is to be held Friday, October 19, 2012 at 11 am at 110 Market Street at the former site of Aitken's Print Shop which is now The Franklin Fountain/Shane's Confectionery.

By coincidence, or I should say providence, Franklin Fountain/Shane's Confectionery is owned by Tenth member Eric Berley.

Zeal for the Gospel

I received this response from the prison chaplain where ACTS Ministries serves: "Thank you for telling me about the home-going of Bill Maun. He is legendary here at the Federal Detention Center.  Staff and inmates still talk about how edifying he was in his zeal for the Gospel. What a man!"
Bill began leading a prison Bible study at the young age of 82 and continued his ministry for another ten years.

Pity the Wicked

Proverbs 11:7

When the wicked dies, his hope will perish,
and the expectation of wealth perishes too.

Pity the wicked. Their hope will perish. All their dreams, what drives them to live, will vanish. If they are fortunate, their hope will perish while in their lifetime. Then they might come to their senses like the prodigal son, repent, and turn to God. But if they are not shown such mercy, their wealth and earthly success might grow, leaving them blind to their destiny. Read more »

CCA/Spruce Hill News

CCA/Spruce Hill's newsletter features an article on its writing curricula. Marion Clark comments on one teacher: "She has that sharp mind and soft heart she speaks of in her article—a teacher who knows her craft and how to impart the skill of writing to each individual student because she truly cares for each one as a person." To read news about one of Tenth's City Partners, click here.
