Worth Revisiting: Loving My Enemy

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’  But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,  that you may be children of your Father in heaven... If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?  And if you… Continue reading Worth Revisiting: Loving My Enemy

Worth Revisiting: Living in the Moment

One of the greatest gifts of ministry is gaining the opportunity to see though the eyes of those who we encounter. If we are able to be unencumbered by our own concerns, schedules and preconceptions, then we are able to truly receive that gift.

Worth Revisiting: The Thief on the Cross

In reading the passages from Luke today on the way of the cross and crucifixion of Jesus, (Lk 23: 26-49) I was struck with gratitude for the thief on the cross beside Christ. Mocked, insulted and shamed- Jesus endured not only the painful, sorrowful physical pain of the cross but rejection of the people that… Continue reading Worth Revisiting: The Thief on the Cross
