WELCOME TO THE NEW WEEK

“Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.”  James 1:2-4  (MSG)

WELCOME TO THE NEW WEEK

“The Angels said, “Why are you looking for the Living One in a cemetery? He is not here, but raised up.  Remember how he told you when you were still back in Galilee that he had to be handed over to sinners, be killed on a cross, and in three days rise up?” Then they remembered Jesus’ words.”  Luke 24:6-8 (MSG)
