In May of 1908, Anna Jarvis organized the first Mother's Day celebration at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia.
When it comes to noticing lives being changed by Christ, we would do well to stop, look and listen to what is going on around us.
This Sunday we will encounter a man who needed a change, and perhaps had it within his power to help it happen, but he let circumstances and excuses hold him back.
Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
It's Friday the 13th. It's a date that brings a sense of fear and dread to so many of us.
