He Loved Them to the End: Love Day - May 20th

He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, do you wash my feet?" Jesus answered him, "What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will under...

But what about the days after? What happened in the days after the resurrection? What happens for us in the days after Resurrection Sunday?After the resurrection, it would make sense for Jes...

We are Earl...

In a 1996 interview with Sports Illustrated's Gary Smith, Tiger Woods' father, Earl Woods said about his son, "Can't you see the pattern? Can't you see the signs?

He shared with me a common Hebrew word used throughout scripture. The word creates a thread that weaves throughout scripture and gives us great incite into the realities of who we are (and aren't), what we are seeking, what...

I find it interesting that this verse, let alone the entire letter, is coming from a guy who is in chains. It probably do...
