What Do You See?

Tonight while I was exercising, a thought popped into my head, so I chased after it for a little bit. It occurred to me that some of the most beloved people in my life, particularly ones that have passed away, I see all the time in other people. You know what I mean. He reminds me of this person, and…

Death Is Not The End

Perhaps one of the most familiar stories from the Gospel of John is the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. If you’re new to the faith, the story can be found in John chapter eleven.  I’ll provide a synopsis of the story here, but I encourage you to go read it in it’s entirety. It spans the entire…
