The people of Nazareth, the city Joseph and Mary were from? No. As far as their community was concerned Joseph was the father. The religious …

The Abandoned Barn

It was Sunday afternoon and they had decided to go for a drive since it was such a beautiful day. They ventured outside of London and ended up in a rural area where they espied what looked like an abandoned barn. Dushan parked the car and they crossed the overgrown field to the sprawling structure. …

Ruth Visits Dushan

Dushan was in the lobby of his building, waiting for a cab to take him to the synagogue for a Shabbat afternoon programme because Chioma had borrowed his car to drive to an assignment which was in Manchester when Ruth walked in. His heart sank. What did she want? Why couldn't she leave him alone? …

Aaron Goes to Church

I'm sitting across the street from where Jully's church is. I'm very nervous. It's the first time she will see me with my hair cut low. One look at me and she will know that I have black in me. Up to now she still thinks that I'm Asian and now she's going to find …

"Maybe in the beginning she wasn't as warm and welcoming as she should have been, but I thought things were improving." "I wish …

The Decision

He had been praying and fasting for weeks on end. He thought about what his friend, Bernard had said after he told him that he couldn't imagine leaving the church. “You don’t have to give up your Catholic faith if you don’t want to.” And to his objection that Clara and he would be unequally …

Mingmei’s Plea

My name is Mingmei and I'm in desperate need of your prayers.   My son's school is teaching him and other children to hate God and to distrust their Christian parents. Before he started school, I told my son about God’s creation and he believed it. But after being taught at school, he is a …
