Another ‘biggie’

Justin Kollmeyer's picture

Christmas and Easter. The “biggies,” right?

Well, what about the event we will “celebrate”tomorrow, which happens to be the 40th day after Easter?

Yes, it was 40 days after Christ’s resurrection that He ascended back into heaven, the event we call “The Ascension.”

News flash: it’s a “biggie,” too.

Bishop John Bradosky of our North American Lutheran Church shared an intriguing reflection on Christ’s ascension and its meaning for us today, the bulk of which I will pass on to you here with his blessing. I have had to edit and omit some portions to fit this column. Read More»

It was just six years ago, In February of 2008, that Minister BaSean A. Jackson met with three other people, Wendell Phillips, Janace Coleman, and John Clemons, at Smokey Bones Restaurant in Peachtree City. The topic of discussion was about whether they could change people’s minds, including their own, about church.

For Jackson, this meant creating a church that would be “... focused more on the people rather than the pastor, love rather than laws, relationships rather than religion, and giving rather than receiving.” Read More»

Are you taking a trip or enjoying the journey?

Dr. David L. Chancey's picture

Jesus came to help us live a full and meaningful life that comes from having a personal relationship with Him (John 10:10).

Our lives should be filled with abundance and purpose. We should make every day count. We should live like we’re thankful for every moment. We should enjoy the journey, and not just endure the trip. We should open our eyes to the joy of today.

Max Lucado tells the story about sitting next to a rather interesting lady as he flew one time. He said, “She was rural and I was urban. She was homey and I was professional. But she could see and I was blind. Read More»
