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.

When Words Fail Us

Have you noticed that there are times when words just fall flat? Have you ever tried to console a grieving friend and inadvertently said something awkward? Have you ever been consumed with your own grief and the words of a well-intentioned friend felt more like salt in a fresh wound? Maybe this happens because words…
