“Those who are effectually brought to Christ, cannot but desire that others also may be brought to him.” Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary It wasn’t until a friend asked me to blog about the current Jewish holidays that I even entertained the notion of talking about them. As a Catholic, I have been immersed in scripture,… Continue reading Reflections on the Jewish New Year, a call to repentance and why I can’t help myself from telling people about Jesus
“Hold fast to the will of God and with all your heart fight the good fight under the leadership of Jesus.” St. Andrew Kim Tae-gon My thoughts this morning were not turned towards The Jewish New Year, or Rosh Hashanah as us MOT’s call it (Member of the Tribe for those that don’t know).
