The Player

Could that lifestyle have had something to do with it? Keith Morrison reports in this Dateline classic. Originally aired on NBC on December 28, 2011.

Day 180: Giving Time to God (2021)

przez admin
As we conclude the book of Amos, we hear Amos rebuke the people for grudgingly giving their time to God, as in prayer or on the sabbath, and counting the minutes until they could do whatever they wanted. Fr. Mike points out that if we don’t give our hearts and minds to God, we won’t be able to stand heaven, where prayer and praise are everlasting. The readings are 2 Kings 13-14, Amos 7-9, and Psalm 124.

Day 175: Knowledge of God (2021)

przez admin
Fr. Mike emphasizes the importance of knowing God and knowing his love for us as we read about the devastation of war and the lack of faith displayed by Israel.

Today’s readings are 2 Kings 6-7, Hosea 4-7, and Psalm 103.
