Holy Week: Day 8 – Easter Sunday: The Day Death Died
Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed—in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.

Jesus’ Authority – My Responsibility
By Philipp Meinecke Read Luke 8:26-39 and Matthew 28:18-20 18th century English writer and theologian G. K. Chesterton postulated that “the first effect of not believing in God is to believe in anything.” This effect is felt throughout the Western hemisphere, where belief in Christianity has given way to the erosive forces that have sought to break it down.
