Passion Week: Good Friday Meditation

April 18, 2014 by Susie Hawkins Comments

Passion Week: Good Friday Meditation ...Ignorant people said insightful things.

Insight: to apprehend the true nature of a thing
Ignorance: lacking in knowledge or information; unaware

The gospel writers' accounts of the last days and hours of Jesus' life recall the ominous tension that filled Jerusalem that week before Passover. At least three players in this drama spoke profound spiritual truths without the faintest idea they were doing so. Their words, preserved in scripture, testify to the purposes for Christ's death - our redemption.

Passion Week: Preschool Style

Passion Week: Preschool Style -During Christmas and Easter life in a minister’s home gets a little crazy.  Those are essentially the two biggest holidays on the Christian calendar meaning they are the two of the biggest events on the church calendar.  In our home we must take, sometimes, extreme measures to make sure we are not totally wiped out when it comes to celebrating these holidays with our kids.  This year I am tailor making our Passion Week festivities to fit our children (4 and 2 1/2 years old).

I Thought Ministry Would Be Glamorous

I Thought Ministry Would Be Glamorous..
As early as high school, I had a sense that I might one day be a pastor's wife. The thought wasn't totally coherent, and it certainly wasn't something I went around talking about. I didn't sit guys down and interrogate them about their future vocation on first dates. I just kind of knew it would turn out the way it has, and all along I wanted it to turn out like it has.

When I was in high school and college, however, my idea of what ministry would be like wasn't at all accurate, so when I thought of what it might be like to marry a guy going into the ministry,

I imagined it to be quite glamorous in a Baptisty sort of way.
