For some reason, the phrase ‘rejuvenated in the spirit’ is resonating with me right now. My reference point however is the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, if you can believe that. I have been revisiting Christ’s last experience on Earth and was struck by the fact that God’s Christ had to be exc…

I wish this was original but it isn’t. Back when we could assemble in church, I was blessed to hear the pastor try to address the fears many of us might have going through these tough times with the economy and the uncertainty that permeates the world today.
