4th Day Letters is a weekly email that we send out every Tuesday as response to a calling we felt from God to inspire and motivate Christian leaders into apostolic action. The Christian movements of Cursillo, Kairos, Via de Cristo, and Walk to Emmaus are experienced over 3 days. Once an individual has experienced these 3 days, the rest of their life is referred to as their “4th Day." Also, Jesus rose on the 3rd day, so therefore I would like to think of all human history, after His resurrection, as the world’s “4th day.”

I hope these letters challenge you and inspire you in your Christian walk.

The Joy of Christ

There I sat. The choir was singing in harmony as musicians provided our beautiful music. The aroma of incense floated through the air. At the front of the church the Bishop, flanked by two Deacons and surrounded by several altar servers wearing the classic black and white garb, encircled the baptismal font. Standing in line…

When No Means No

So just what exactly do you think Paul meant in Romans 13:11-14 when he said: “make no provision for the desires of the flesh.” I am pretty sure he meant; No—None—Nix–Nil—Naught—Nothing–Not one iota–Zero—Zilch—Zip—Zippo. Is that even possible? Read more and find out. Assuming that I have adequately restated Paul’s position and we are not to make…

My Friend, My Brother, The King

Many people want to be friends with a celebrity. They stand in line to get their autograph. Just last night I had the opportunity to attend a Garth Brooks concert. Garth gave away an autographed guitar to a couple who became engaged at the concert. He also gave away one of his famous Stetson hats…

Feed My People

When any of us hear the term “starving people” we immediately think of the many people around the world who go without food every day. Most of us have seen and been deeply moved by graphic pictures of starving people and as a result we have offered our financial help. In addition to the many…

You’ve Got Mail, Or Do You?

Certainly everyone who has used email has at some point undoubtedly received back a message stating: “the message you sent was undeliverable”. There can be both technical and human reasons why some emails fail to go through. Today I want to draw a parallel between broken email communications and our own, occasionally broken communications, with…

Do You Need New Shoes?

Much has been written about the impact of the clothes we all wear. Clearly clothes do make a statement. Psychological reports seem to indicate that the clothes we wear even impact how we feel about ourselves. If a person normally doesn’t wear a suit, and then one day wears one, they are likely to feel…

Divided We Fall

In the story of Cain and Abel both brothers were attempting to please God. “Cain brought an offering to the LORD from the fruit of the ground, while Abel, for his part, brought the fatty portion of the firstlings of his flock.” (Genesis 4:3-4) Cain became very angry and dejected when the Lord looked with…

Can You Drink The Cup?

Imagine for a second that you’re at a fine outdoor restaurant when you notice that there’s a gnat in your water glass. What do you do? Most likely you politely call over your waiter and point out the problem. Would you be shocked and dismayed if he used his finger to pluck the gnat from…
