We have all made Barabbas into some kind of monster. At least in my mind, he has become some kind of Disney villain with horns and a patch over his eye. Someone that I can not relate to because “I’m not that bad”. As we approach Easter we will probably hear how Pilate gave the […]

I quickly apologized and received his forgiveness. However, what I remember the most about this conflict was not the feeling the joy of forgiveness […]
Recently I heard that a beautiful resort that I had once stayed in had closed and fallen prey to vandalism and theft. I drove out to see it and was shocked by its sudden demise.
