How Do We View Motherhood?

Everybody knows that a good mother gives her children a feeling of trust and stability. She is their earth. She is the one they can count on for the things that matter most of all. She is their food and their bed and the extra blanket when it grows cold in the night; she is their warmth and their health and their shelter; she is the one they want to be near when they cry. She is the only person in the whole world in a whole lifetime who can be these things to her children. There is no substitute for her. Somehow even her clothes feel different to her children's hands from anybody else's clothes. Only to touch her skirt or her sleeve makes a troubled child feel better.  - Katharine Butler Hathaway

What Did the Resurrection Really Accomplish?

Today is the day we celebrate.  It is the day set aside to honor the most pivotal events of the most pivotal life ever lived.  It is Resurrection Sunday, and all around the world Christians are taking this day and remembering the magnitude of Jesus and his sacrifice.  Let us do the same.  On this podcast we meditate upon the life and love of our Master, our Lord, our Savior, the Author and Finisher of our Faith, Jesus, the Ransom for all men.

Are Palm Sunday and the Passover Related?

In the worlds of Judaism and Christianity, this is a very special time of year.  It is a time when deliverance is celebrated and liberty is proclaimed, for in both faiths events occurred that were both defining and miraculous.  For the Jew, the Passover represents the deliverance out of bondage and into a national heritage.  For the Christian, the Last Supper and following events represent their deliverance from sin into the liberty of Christ.  Is it a coincidence that these two events happen at the same time of year?  On this podcast we look into the amazing connection between these events – Palm Sunday and the Lamb, the Passover and the Crucifixion and the deliverance from Egypt and the deliverance from sin.
