My heart is filled with gratitude as I write this “Thought for the Week”. Sunday, May 19, I will celebrate my 80th Birthday.  Never did I think that I would live so long. By all medical records, I wasn’t supposed to make it to my 1st Birthday and certainly not past my 13th. I survived […]

Victory Over Death

Victory Over Death

This is Holy Week. While we celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus every Sunday, it is this week when Christians around the world focus with laser like attention on the most significant, life changing event in all of history.

We call it “Holy Week” or “Passion Week” In all of history it was one of the most eventful, tumultuous, tender, conflicting, humiliating, agonizing, horrifying, grief -filled, significant, victorious  week ever recorded.
