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.

Transparent Living

How many people know the real you? How many people truly know the person you see in the mirror?  All of us wear masks. We attempt to hide parts of ourselves from others. We prefer to present a public persona with our flaws and short comings well hidden. There are dangers in this charade? Who…

A Witness for Christ

As Christians, we are called to give witness to our faith. Problems can arise when we lose sight of our role. A witness, as in a courtroom, is neither the judge nor jury. Spiritually speaking, that is God’s role. Christian witnessing means telling the story of how Jesus is working in our life. It is…

Why Is Being Right So Important?

In the account from…

Get Your Stink On

Let’s be honest, we come into this world capable of creating quite a stench. Ask any parent who has changed a stinky diaper. Just prior to exiting this life many people find themselves in hospitals or nursing homes once again dependent on others for their hygiene needs. We come in stinky and leave stinky. Spiritually…

We All Need A Spiritual MRI

People with MS often undergo an annual MRI to monitor their disease. Yesterday I was at Duke Medical Center being prepped for my annual Cerebral MRI to monitor the advancement of my MS. As I was slid into the tube of the MRI scanner, I had the thought that maybe we all need a spiritual…
