by Trina Kleist

Jesus tells us: Be One! One. Unified. That’s how Jesus wants his followers to act. Love each other, and be one. Jesus prayed this prayer for us just before he left this earth. He must have known how hard it gets for us humans to follow those two seemingly simple commands! “The glory that you […]

by Trina Kleist

And, Happy Mother’s Day! When evil pounces, God is there with us – but that doesn’t mean God makes it all go away! Jesus knew his followers would draw attack and even suffer divisions within their ranks. Evil is a part of this world. So he prayed to the Father, “Protect them!” “I ask you […]

by Trina Kleist

Jesus shows himself by breaking bread – It’s still Easter – and we continue with the amazing events surrounding that first Easter day. Today’s story: Jesus reminds his followers he remains with them.
