At Easter, the Son of God took on the world's sin and defeated the devil, death, and grave. How is it, then, that history's most glorious moment is surrounded by fearful fishermen, despised tax collectors, marginalized women, feeble politicians, and friends who turned out to be traitors? Author Dan Darling is back with us. He's got a new book out: The Characters of Easter. He helps us become acquainted with some unlikely and very ordinary people who witnessed the miracle of Christ's death and resurrection.
Today during our Relationship Wednesday segment with Dr. David Clarke we got a phone call from Danielle. She was driving around with her young children after being physically abused by her husband. By the providence of God, she was listening to us and reached out for help. Dave was able to meet her in the moment and provide godly guidance. As Danielle sat in her car in the parking lot, we opened up the phones and so many called to give her a sense of hope, comfort, and much-needed encouragement. It truly was the Body of Christ in action! We're staying in touch with Danielle and please keep praying for her, and her children.
