Hank Explains Resurrection

"Hank, I have a question about resurrection." "What's the question?" "If we go straight to heaven when we die, what's the point of the resurrection?" "That's a very good question, Ede. I'm happy you asked it. It is very clear in the Word of God, that there are two resurrections. The first one is of …

A Teacher’s Confession

Photo by cottonbro on Pexels.com "Good Morning, father." "Good Morning." She quickly made the sign of the cross before saying, "Bless me father, for I have sinned. It has been five months since my last confession. These are my sins.” Father Culpepper listened as she confessed her sins briefly and clearly. "Father, I'm truly sorry …

Ede Meets Hank

It had been several weeks since Father Desjardins left. She missed him very much, especially their talks about the Bible and religion in general. There were times when she walked through the fields, half expecting to see him or him sitting down at the picnic table at the back of her grandmother's house. She went …

Why Good Friday?

Father Desjardins was saying a prayer and as he kissed the rosary, he opened his eyes because he sensed that he wasn't alone. Ede was standing there, watching him. He put the rosary in the pocket of his Cossack and then beckoned her to approach him. "I'm sorry, Father Desjardins," she apologized. "I didn't mean …

One-Sided

"I know that you married me for my money but, I didn't care because I loved and wanted you so desperately. I still do. I know that you don't love me and you probably never will." "You're mistaken, you know," he said quietly. "I do love you." "You may love me in your own special …

Lunch, Dinner and…

This morning, I read in Matthew 16:28 where Jesus said, “Verily, I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.” I sat there wondering about it.  Was He talking about the Second Coming or something else?  It didn’t …

Misguided Service

Rejoice!

He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay - Matthew 28:6 This morning I read three Gospel accounts of the resurrection of Jesus. The empty tomb meant that Jesus had risen as He had said He would. We can always trust in His Word and …

Doubt

“Occupy your mind with My love, leaving no room for worry and doubt.” Doubt is like a bad penny.  It always keeps turning up.  It seems that no matter how many times we see the hand of God working in our lives, there is always room for doubt.  Even when we have a close relationship …

The Birth of Jesus Christ

“Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” - Luke 2:14 The most wonderful event in history occurred one night in the city of David.  Mary gave birth to her first Child, a Son.  She wrapped Him snugly in strips of cloth and laid Him in the manger because there …
