Good News Amongst the Raging Waters

It is Saturday. It is the day we remember Jesus laying in a grave. It is quiet, it is solemn, it is lonely. It brings sadness. Many Christians are feeling Easter from a different perspective.

The Resurrection and Our Hope No Matter What

What is the correct response to the coronavirus? Should we have fear or faith? Well, the answer to that question depends on where you’re coming from and your understanding of this world… The Bible teaches Christians that through Christ, no matter what we face, we can have faith.

Ash Wednesday

Will the Real Messiah Please Stand Up?!
