For Such A Time As This

I have always looked at the story of Esther as some day there will be a “for such a time as this”. When thinking about it lately, I realized that every moment of everyday is a “such a time as this” for us. Every time we make a choice to make a difference for someone …

The Extravagance Of God

“Our Lord made the way for every Son of Man to come into communion with God. The Saints do not end in crucifixion; by the Lord‘s grace, they end in glory.”* Our God is an extravagant God. We see that when we look at His Creation. We can see the beauty in the grass and …
