From the Pastor’s Desk
It is said that in some American prisons which still have a so-called “death row”, when a prisoner conducts his final walk to his execution the guard will shout, “dead man walking”. It tells others to get out of the way and show some sort of respect for a man about to leave this life. In New Testament times when a Roman official sentence someone to death he would shout out: “Put the cross on the man!”
I have heard some people describe the Christian faith as taking the things you like to do the most and stop doing them, whilst also taking the things you like to do the least and start doing them. Yikes, not exactly what anyone would have in mind when thinking of something called “good news”! In short, to many, Christianity is a list of do’s and don’ts.
