Suffering, distress, pain, trouble, misery, hardship, misfortune, adversity, sorrow, tribulation and trial are all types of afflictions that a person experiences in a Christian life. If you are facing any of these afflictions, don’t give up! If you haven’t experienced an affliction before, you will because in a Christian life affliction is  an absolute certainty and it can last for a day, a moment or a lifetime. In the gospel of St. Mark (Chapter 5 verses 25 to 34), we learn about… Read More

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed. As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and various subjects. When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said: ‘I don’t believe that God exists.’ ‘Why do you say that?’ asked the customer. ‘Well, you just have to go out in the… Read More

We are taught from the Scriptures….. A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit (Proverbs 15:4) and pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones (Proverbs 16:24). In the following story, we can clearly see how powerful words are. Enjoy! A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. All the other frogs gathered around the… Read More

Imagine that you had won the following  prize in a contest:  Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400.00 in  your private account for your use.  However, this prize had rules, just as any game has certain rules.  The first set of rules would  be: 1) Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.  2) You may not simply transfer money into some other account. You may only… Read More

God took the fragrance of a flower, The majesty of a tree, The gentleness of morning dew, The calm of a quiet sea.  The beauty of the twilight hour, The soul of a starry night, The laughter of a rippling brook, The grace of a bird in flight.  Then God fashioned from these things, A creation like no other, And when his masterpiece was through, He called it simply – Mother.  -Herbert Farnham Happy Mother’s Day to the beautiful mother of… Read More

I am still a Christian I get drunk, I get high, I smoke and I party I have replaced going to Church with a club life I fornicate,… Read More

In the name of the Father and the Son and Holy Spirit, One God, Amen! + Bemenu BeAsale Menu Nastemeseleki (በመኑ ወበአምሳለ መኑ ናስተማስለኪ) + With what or whom should I compare thee O blessed mother? From the beginning of time no man, woman, Prophet, Apostle or saint of God has been found to be as pure as thee, thus thou and thou only art “Full of Grace” (Melete Tsega).   PEACE… Read More

We as human beings are bound to make mistakes in life, because no one but God is perfect. When others hurt us or mistreat us it is so easy to get upset, angry and hold on to a grudge for days, weeks, months and years. Some people actually die with grudges in their heart, never forgiving others. Forgiveness, is something I personally had to work on and found very difficult. I used… Read More

I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.   John 15:5 (NKJV) The branch metaphor that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ uses is absolutely spectacular, because a  physical branch cannot bear fruit on it’s own. If you cut a branch, it will become dry and withered.  It cannot produce fruit unless it’s… Read More
