Being Christian


Doing what’s just with compassion and mercy isn’t easy…but desperately needed.


2 Timothy 1:8

So do not be ashamed of your testimony to our Lord…but bear your share of hardship for the gospel with the strength that comes from God.


God loves you infinitely no matter what you’ve done in the past.

Forgiveness is freely given. Jesus clearly demonstrated this. I have experienced it in my own heart. I hope that you have experienced it as well.

We are all called to share the Good News of God’s unconditional love and forgiveness for everyone.

There are no favorites or elites in God’s eyes.

All are equal.

When you live your life as a testimony to this gospel…you will face hardship and persecution from those who will disagree with you. Fundamentalists and those holding power will likely not treat you kindly.

Let St. Paul’s words above be an encouragement to you.

The world is in great need of experiencing Christ’s love, mercy, grace, forgiveness, compassion and justice for all.

Perhaps someone near you is in need of experiencing the “Good News”?

How will this happen…if not through you?

Have courage! God’s love will carry you!
