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.

History shows us that the 1960s were a tumultuous and divisive decade marked by the civil rights movement, antiwar protests, and political assassinations.

Freedom Can Be Dangerous

July 4th is the day set aside in the United States to celebrate independence and freedom. That freedom came at a price. Many sacrificed their lives to make America free. Today, many take that freedom for granted. Many abuse that freedom. Many allow their personal freedom to cause harm to others. Freedom misused is dangerous.…

Onions are part of a group of plants that contain amino acid sulfoxides. As an onion is peeled or chopped, it releases gas into the air that irritates our eyes. When this happens, the glands above the eyelids release reflex tears. To enjoy the taste of the onion, we must accept the tears. When we…

Monitoring Our Inner Volcano

It was a beautiful August morning. Hours later, the sky turned black, and Mount Vesuvius exploded without warning. Hidden deep beneath the beauty of the mountain was a tumultuous cauldron of toxic gas and molten lava. The pent-up pressure exploded on August 24, AD79 causing unimaginable damage. Our lives can be like a volcano. Buried…

Spiritual Dryness Revisited

In 2013, I wrote a 4th Day Letter about spiritual dryness. It is something that at one time or another most Christians experience. After reflecting upon the isolation caused by the pandemic, the inability to attend church, and after recent discussions with several Christians currently going through a time of spiritual dryness, I felt called…
