Living Letters

We had a refreshing visit with John. He was cordial, gracious, interesting, and entertaining–in a subtle sort of way. He was one of those people that make you ask, “Tell me more.” We met him Monday when we went to pick up something at his home. Our visit lasted much longer than the errand required. We were…

To Be Like Jesus

At the Last Supper with His disciples, Jesus knew that one of them would betray Him, He would be crucified, and that He would rise from the dead. He also knew His disciples would scatter, leaving Him to suffer alone. Jesus understood what was before Him, and yet in obedience to His Father, He continued…

Love

  It is Valentine’s, time for cards, flowers, chocolates, and dinner out. Time to express love and caring. Time to say, “I love you.” But then, when isn’t it time to show love and caring? Cards and gifts are mandated by culture on this special day. For many, they are necessary in order to maintain…
