Why I Call It "Good Friday"

Last edited 3rd April 2012

It seems interesting that we refer to the day Christ died as 'Good Friday'. Considering the events of the day, tragic or awful seems more appropriate. However, we ultimately know what God was up to that day. Though the events seemed very 'BAD', God was using everything that happened for 'GOOD'.

Last edited 20th March 2012

Charity really isn’t all that hard. I mean, it is hard to get over ourselves, over our discomfort, over our feelings of inconvenience, over our feelings of not having enough time or money. But it is very clear when we need to charitable. We are faced daily with so many needs. What is easy about it is that it just requires a response. A simple response.
