One hot and dusty afternoon, a woman came to a well to draw water. There she found the Savior resting from His long journey. She was surprised when He asked for a drink because she was a Samaritan, a group despised by the Jews. She said, “How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest […]

Two thousand years ago the Savior stood on the shores of Galilee teaching the crowds. As night fell, He perceived the people were hungry and asked His disciples to gather what food they could.

The leaders of the Jews brought an adulterous woman before the Lord asking if she should be stoned. Christ simply said, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” Convicted by their own conscience, the crowd disappeared leaving only Christ and the accused. “Woman, where are those thine […]

When Mothers Without Borders approached me about going to Africa, I told them I was not interested. For me Africa was a world away, “and besides,” I thought, “I am too busy.” Imagine my surprise when I found myself on a plane to Zambia in June 2007. One of the first children I met was […]

Lost Sheep

In the parable of the Lost Sheep the Lord compares Himself to a Good Shepherd who leaves the ninety-nine to look for the one sheep who is lost. It is easy for me to become distracted with things that seem important at the time, only to find that I have wandered away from the Lord […]

Parable A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a […]
