The Last Blockbuster (church)

I still have a blockbuster card to the last blockbuster left on the planet. We live in the Pacific Northwest, about a 4 hour drive away from Bend, OR where the only remaining blockbuster sits.

Echoing The Light

Why would Jesus, make a comparison between hearing and light?  I mean light is something you see, not something you hear right? Other places, we’ve read Jesus’s words and he says: “My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice.” (Lk 8:21) So, why would Jesus make a comparison between hearing and the light?  “No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. For there is nothing...
