    The Church Jesus Built... I. It has significant stones II. It has regal priests

    Easter 5 I Peter 2:4-10 How long does it take to build a church from scratch? I guess that depends on what our definition of the word “church” is.

    based on 16 ratings

    On the day after Christmas, on St. Stephen’s Day, we learn that though getting to heaven is easy through Jesus, carrying his cross on earth often times isn’t. But if being a Christian is difficult, it is even more so for the unbeliever.

    Festival of St. Stephen Matthew 23:34-39 I have always had a healthy respect for all branches of the military, and not to take anything away from the other divisions of our armed forces, but one branch particularly stands out in my mind: the Marine Corps.
