Look, Touch, Lunch

Look, Touch, Lunch

Jesus said, “Peace be with you,” to his friends after the Resurrection. Their response was terror as if seeing a ghost, doubt and joy. Then Jesus creates peace he commends with three simple moves: look, touch and what’s for lunch?

Easter Gift

Easter Gift

Way back in the first chapter of John’s gospel, John gives away the ending of his book, he says “The light shone in the darkness and the darkness did not overcome it.” That is our Easter gift.

Friday Friend

From his Friday to ours and because of his Friday take heart, you have a Friday Friend! “To trust God in the light is nothing but trust him in the dark that is faith.”
