<strong>Clergy Corner: The resurrection of Jesus Christ</strong>

The evidence is so overwhelming that it cannot be denied. It’s recorded within scripture, history, and found in archaeology. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians, “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according (more…)

Barreto Lugo / Contributed Starting on March 25, the Christian church all over the world will immerse herself in the commemoration of Holy Week. It’s the tribute of the savior, Jesus Christ, the son of God, in the week of his passion. It’s the remembrance of his harrowing torture and suffering on the cross, his sacrificial death and hasty burial, but above all; it is the week before the celebration of his glorious resurrection. Beginning with Palm Sunday, where Christians celebrate Christ’s triumphal entrance into Jerusalem and including the solemn services of Holy (more…)

Clergy Corner: You are a treasure worth sharing

File PhotoSusan Beckett ■ By Susan Beckett / Contributed Ever since I was a youngster, I’ve enjoyed reading the newspaper, and in particular, the advice columns—Dear Abby and Ann Landers—to be precise. I remember one very quirky letter a lady wrote in about a friend she had known for years. One day, she asked her friend for one of her yummy casserole recipes. The friend told her that it was a secret recipe and refused to share it. When the friend died, she had requested in her will that the recipe be buried with her in the casket. Geez! I mean really, being buried with a casserole recipe? Pretty out there! (more…)

They smile and say that they’ll simply find a new one. Car breaks down and it appears beyond repair? They express gratitude for the good service it provided and don’t worry about finding another one. Diagnosed with a long-term illness? They adjust to the changes and face life with a positive attitude. Aren’t they annoying? Even though they have disappointments and hardships, they bounce back quicker and seem to thrive in all circumstances. Why aren’t they more disillusioned (more…)

Clergy Corner: Ask and the door is always open

The Center for Spiritual Living HemetReverend Rhonda Tretsven. ■ Rhonda Tretsven / Contributed In Luke 11:9 we find, “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Sounds simple enough, and it is. So why do we make it so complicated? We are of course human, creating all kinds of excuses why we cannot find God or at least have a relationship with IT. Funny thing is, the Divine is everywhere present. IT is in everything we experience on a daily basis, so we are in relationship with it constantly! Relationships, as I (more…)

But before it was ours, the Psalm itself tells us, this verse belonged to David (Psalm 23:1). And David spoke, wrote, (more…)
