6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Verse of the Month
Kristin has multiple credits in Broadway theatre, most lately "Glinda" in the immensely successful play "Wicked." She also makes no bones about her Christian committment.
But, "I'm a very controversial figure," she adds. "I don't believe if you're gay or you have drink or a dance you're going to hell. I want to be loving and accepting of other people."
In this, she feels, she is following her Master who was not notable for the number of people he condemned.
Death Has Been Defeated
Nineteen hundred and eighty years or so ago, something happened in Jerusalem that affects the life of every human being who has ever lived or will live.
It is all recorded in a set of writings we call the Four Gospels. They report that Jesus, a carpenter from Nazareth, had been arrested, condemned and crucified. As he died he entrusted himself to One he believed was his eternal heavenly Father. Then, for three days his battered corpse had lain in a tomb carved out of solid rock, sealed by a heavy stone rolled across the entrance.
Even so, Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor, had placed a guard at the tomb. Jesus had prophesied that the grave would not hold him, and Pilate was afraid the followers of the dead man would try to steal the body.
