Dialog with God

Dialog with God

Prayer is a dialog with God. Or that’s how it is meant to be. But in reality, too often we just spill out what’s on our heart and then run off before God has a chance to respond. So prayer becomes a monologue instead. But even just as a monologue prayer is important and powerful but as a dialogue, it becomes life-changing and empowering. How can we then dialogue with God? Having a dialogue with God is simple but prayer…

Ash Wednesday Thoughts

Ash Wednesday Thoughts

When Eternal Life Embraces Us

When Eternal Life Embraces Us

The Bible says that eternal life lies in knowing God. There must be something really special about knowing God. How can we do that? We can’t do it without Jesus. But Jesus died for us so we could know God. If we receive this gift of grace, we are free to get to know God. Other religions teach that we need to first become good to approach God. But Christianity boldly proclaims that all we need is Jesus. Jesus looked…
