Sara with Friends

My Best Friend

By Sara Blasko, Children’s Ministry Director One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Romans 12:15. It is one of my favorite verses about friendship. “Rejoice with those rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.” I have some amazing friends that have done all of these things for me this past month. Rejoicing in the victories and mourning when tough stuff is going on.  Over the years I have realized that my friends can be there for fun, be there…

Emotional MEMORY OF 9/11 AND RESURRECTION

This is the anniversary of 9/11, a horrific event in the history of our nation. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when the planes hit the towers. Events like this shake our emotions so violently that they carve a lasting memory in our minds. The emotional impact of the event is what makes the memory so vivid and long-lasting. As a Christian, there is another significant event, equally horrific, that I recall. And even though…
