Are you tired, weary, in need of refreshing? Many people are struggling with weariness and wanting to give up in different thing in their lives.

The spiritual importance of Christmas and Easter are well known to Christians, while the significance of celebrating Pentecost is often overlooked. Yet, Pentecost is the day the Church was born and the day when the power behind the Jesus Movement was unleashed upon our world.

In Matthew 4, we read that the crowds followed Jesus as he taught and healed them. In chapter 5, which includes what are called the Beatitudes, we see that Jesus seeks to distance himself from the following mob, to get together with his disciples to teach them about how to behave in their ow…

President Donald Trump’s speech on Iran will not go down in memory as eloquent or inspiring — but it gave the world what it needed most: an opportunity for de-escalation. The U.S. president was unquestionably speaking to many audiences, and most should be more pleased than upset by what they heard.
