The Morning

By: Josh Waidley

The women came to tend your body And cover the stench of failure and decay A small act of love on a grim morning To smother with spices death’s victory You were already back from your journey Before they came, you were quietly walking Having yawned, stretched and risen with the sun Creation knew you […]

A Sabbath without Hope

By: Tim Ritter

The Friday of Jesus’ death was the most catastrophic day in history. God himself died. Think of all that Jesus’ friends witnessed and experienced during that day: After the Last Supper, Jesus had asked His disciples to stay up all night to keep watch, but they fell asleep, leaving their messiah to pray in agony […]

By: Alyssa Strull

Sometimes we forget that Jesus had friends, he ate meals with them, he traveled with them, and they had amazing experiences together. It was these friends in these last days that left him and betrayed him, not once, not twice, but multiple times. Judas for example, decided to disown Jesus in exchange for a payment […]

Dependency and Trust Through Unbelief

By: Brooke Meyer

On the Mount of Olives in Matthew 24, Jesus tells His disciples that the future will be dark. Natural disasters, famines, and wars will inevitably happen and tension between leaders of nations will be heightened. The people who once were thought to be believers and followers will grow cold in love and stale in belief. Not […]
