2016-BrokenDoorMinistries-4thDayLetters-Logo

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.

Growing up as a Catholic and being an altar server prior to changes of Vatican II, I learned my prayers in Latin. One of those prayers was the Confiteor. Within that prayer are these words: “mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.” When I prayed these words I was attesting to my own sinfulness. It…

Crushed

This world can be a difficult place. Most of us, at some point in our life, will feel stomped on, crushed or ground up by worldly events. Jesus was also ground down in this life and crushed by the weight of all of our sins. A quick examination of the process that a grape goes…

Shooting Star

I hope you will indulge me as I reminisce a little today. “Life can pass us by like a warm summer day”. That’s what happened to Johnny in the 1975 song SHOOTING STAR by the group Bad Company. The song tells the story of a young boy who grows up to be a rock star,…

From Absurdity To Obedience

I have vivid memories of growing up and going over to visit my grandfather. As we drove up the stone driveway, we could hear every sound coming from his television. This was true even when the house windows were closed and the car windows were rolled up. That is how absurdly loud my grandfather had his…

Who Am I?

How do you answer what is considered one of the biggest questions in life: “Who am I?” The source of our identity impacts the quality of our life and how we handle the ups and downs that life throws at us. If we find our identity in the wrong place, life can prove to be…

Sadly, when this happens, many parents experience nearly inconsolable sadness. They spend years of heartache concerned about the salvation of their children and grandchildren.  Have…
