What Would Jesus Want for His Birthday?

Video of service and performed by Marvin Goldstein and John Canaan
“Because I Have Been Given Much” Video performed by Marvin Goldstein and John Canaan and features pictures of giving service to those in need.

As we come around to the winter holidays, I have been doing a little reflection. I wanted to understand…..What would Jesus want for a birthday present?

I mean, He gave His everything so that we could return home to our heavenly father free of the sins of this world.  What does He ask of us?

The Same Jersey

Preparing to be A Disciple of Jesus Christ

Light in a stormThis week in class I learned that I am preparing to become a better disciple of Jesus Christ.

Webster’s Dictionary defines to prepare as follows:

To be a good disciple is to be a good leader. Continue reading Preparing to be A Disciple of Jesus Christ
