Christ is in our midst!

I grew up in a city that was very prejudiced. All ethnic groups lived in their “community”.
I recently met with what is referred to in the gang world as a “lieutenant” from a local gang. I met him at a Bible study in jail that is called “Fathers who have troubles with sons”.

Icon-PentecostHe confided to me that his son was recently shot in a “drive by”, and he felt the guilt and shame of his son’s accident.

When I first met Mr. Young (not his real name), I perceived him to be a cold-blooded man who had no respect for others. I was wrong. He gave his life to Christ and is now teaching his son how to live as a Christian.

I was told, many years ago, first impressions are usually wrong...

No one knows who is spiritual... I believe there are many saints around us and sometimes they reveal unto us our need to live for Christ.

May the beauty of heaven consume you…

Fr. David Ogan
