Those who have had a near-death experience speak about passing through a tunnel having a great light at the end. “Near death” really means “Near-life.” Jesus is the door to life. Pass through the door, which is Jesus, and rest with the Good Shepherd.
Do not be satisfied with merely a near-death experience of your selfish self, but rather a whole-death one. The side of Jesus, opened on the cross, is the doorway to life for us all.
Fridays are dedicated to the Gospels.
This year in the seasons of Lent and Easter we read selections from the Gospel of John.
These Firestarters are from a new edition of The Bible Through the Seasons being developed for families with children. For the Firestarters in the original edition, I recommend the ebook. You will have the entire program of well over a thousand of these introductions with you on your phone or table! Check the menu options at the site for more information.
