Promises: Week 4

Greg Wasinski Uncategorized

How? We ask this question a lot when it comes to trying to figure out God. We place Him in a box or try to place our own human understanding as the driving force to how it is possible that He can be in control. Truth is, God is God and we are not. He not only walks with us …

Who is it that you are really waiting for this Advent? The Savior we wait for will dwell in us and live through us. He is light and hope and reconciliation and joy – we rejoice in the opportunity to live with Him eternally. As always, Who we say Jesus is, is often who the rest of the world sees …

Do you know your “Why?” When it comes to a time of preparing yourself for the beauty of Christmas, have you really thought about why you really need to take time?

The way we share our family time as we get ready …

Side by Side – Day 46 “Holy Saturday”

Gregory Wasinski Uncategorized

The reflection of Holy Saturday for me often is filled with confusion. I feel empty because I want Jesus back. I carry guilt about all the ways I haven’t remained faithful or what I didn’t do during my Lenten journey that could have made me stronger. This must be how the disciples felt with a fear of the unknown. We …

Side by Side – Day 45 “Good Friday”

Gregory Wasinski Uncategorized

It’s time… All of our Lenten preparation leads us to this moment; Jesus on the cross. Have we remembered though He took OUR cross, the one which bore our weakness and sin? He was handed a wooden beam which was weighed down with the inequities of the world. Christ never asks us to do anything He wasn’t willing to do …

A reminder of the heart we need …
