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.

Mouth to Mouth Kissing

A woman spoke to her lover with these words, “Let him kiss me with kisses of his mouth, for your love is better than wine, better than the fragrance of your perfumes.” These words appear to come from the pages of a steamy romance novel. Does it surprise you to know these words are from…

Dumpster Diving
