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.

Does Truth Matter?

What is truth? Does truth matter? My goal today is to prod us all into a personal examination of our own beliefs. Nothing is more certain than death. Is there really life after death or will we simply decay and become dust? Will there be a day of judgment? Is our faith the one true…

Jesus Might Have Worn Crazy Socks

Lady’s you are way ahead of us men when it comes to wearing crazy socks. While reading an interesting article as I prepared for today’s 4th Day Letter, I concluded that if crazy socks would have been available in Jesus’ days, He would have been the first to wear them. It has been recorded that…

Killing Silk Flowers

My mother-in-law, who passed away several years ago, was known by family and friends in Northern Ohio for her green thumb. Year round, her home was full of a wide variety of vibrant, thriving house plants. People would routinely bring her their droopy, nearly dead plants but soon after receiving her tender care these plants…
