Holy Week: Wednesday

Isaiah 50:4-9 is a beautiful example of how we are to be good servants
of the Lord. Woven into the passage are warning, instruction and hope.

Holy Week: Tuesday

At the Last Supper, Jesus tells the Twelve that one of them will betray

He is followed and adored just mere days before those same shouts morph into cries of, “Crucify Him!”

The increasing popularity of social media has put focus on just how deep our “I trouble” goes. We’re constantly photographing ourselves and then checking to see how many people approve of the post—aka approve/like us.
