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.

As I write this, the song TO DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM, is echoing in my thoughts. Each year, for over 100 years, one week is set aside as a Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. This year it was January 18-25. Today, I want to explore the difficult topic of Christian disunity. Is Christian unity…

Weaponized Shame

Weaponized shame is the intentional use of shame to lower another person’s status. Underlying all bullying, is the intent to cause someone shame.  In addition to being crucified, Jesus was bullied and shamed to death! Often overlooked because of the pain of crucifixion is the Roman’s primary objective of inflicting maximum public shame and humiliation…

Indisputable Evidence

Recently I was watching a college football game. The call made by the referee on the field was being reviewed in the instant replay booth. The announcer pointed out that indisputable video evidence, beyond all doubt, was required in order to overturn the call on the field.  This made me think. Is there indisputable evidence,…

Why Did You Spill The Coffee?

“You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you or shakes your arm, making you spill your coffee everywhere. Why did you spill the coffee? “Because someone bumped into me!!!” Wrong answer. You spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup. Had there been tea in the…

Trust God’s 2020 Vision

The rare neurological disease that I have has left me with permanently damaged vision. Everything I see is somewhat foggy. The density of the fogginess is constantly changing. Sometimes it is wispy and I see relatively well and at other times, it is dense and disorienting. As a result, I can no longer drive. My…

Re-Gifting Jesus

Christmas is a birthday celebration in honor of Jesus Christ. Take a close look under your tree on Christmas morning. The one whose birthday we celebrate will likely be the only one with no presents under the tree. What is the best gift to give to our Savior? Our best gift to Him, is to…

Giving Birth To Jesus

Mary, the mother of Jesus, was from Nazareth. No prophet had ever come out of Nazareth. In John’s Gospel, the people wondered if anything good could come from that town. When you look at the wounds and brokenness in your own life, do you sometimes wonder if anything good can come from you? As we…

Already and Not Yet

It seems strangely paradoxical to assume something can already be and not yet be at the same time. Oddly enough it is possible. It is the stuff movies are made of. Understanding how this can be is of utmost importance to you and me. A day of reckoning is coming. There is an urgency to…

Groaning In Captivity

In A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, the ghost transported Ebenezer Scrooge to his Christmas past. He was saddened by his misdeeds and past mistakes. He was permitted to peer into Christmas future. He saw his death and was terrified. His Christmas present was no less disturbing. He knew he had to change. We are…

Let The Truth Be Told

Life presents us with two big lies. The first lie tells us that we are supposed to have our act altogether. In response to this lie, anytime someone asks us how we are doing we often say, “I’m fine”.  The second lie tells us everybody’s life is perfect except mine. Our response to this lie…
