You Are Righteous

As I’ve no doubt mentioned before, I grew up with two brothers, and we were all pretty close in age. Now as many of you know, boys sometimes hit each other…just for the fun of it. So when three brothers actually get angry with one another, well the hitting and fighting can get a little intense.

MARK 1:29–39 

Jesus Heals Many

     29 As soon as they left the synagogue, they went with James and John to the home of Simon and Andrew. 30 Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they immediately told Jesus about her. 31 So he went to her, took her hand and helped her up.

It gave them a sense that they were a part of something special, and not to mention an excellent way to keep little brothers and sisters out.

The Real Headline of Epiphany


How many of you read the paper? I’m not talking just about our local paper, but any paper. And what is it that stands out the most when you read a paper? The headlines, right?

Did you know, though, that the writers of the articles don’t write the headlines? No, that job belongs to the editor of the paper. He is the one who is responsible for putting an interesting headline on the story, while at the same time a headline that adequately reflects what’s written in the story.
