I also understand from today’s scripture: When Mary lays a problem before Jesus, Jesus doesn’t ignore or say no to His mother.

Thank you Bruce for today’s message reminding me that sympathy is not just a feeling! But as we see by Mary’s example, involvement, placing the need before God in prayer, and if called to ACT. What came up in my mind besides this very special Ministry, is the detrimental effects of covid 19 around the world and especially India!!! You have got me thinking it isn’t enough to say to myself ” Poor things and feel sympathy!” What about storming Heaven with my prayers and ” listen to and do what He says” ?!!! As Mary told the servants to… Read more »

You have given me a further incentive of my Spiritual Giving. I have bee retired from teaching for nine years. I care for my husband and find ir difficult to volunteer on a specified day, time.

Bruce, I get so much from your teachings, not some of the teachings (theology) we all suffer sometimes but taught in a practical way.

I began listening during lent. I have been a believer for a very long time but fell into a slump. I decided to do lent for the first time and never having done it I wanted to know what it was all about. That is where I found your ministry. I have been so blessed and so I would like to help in a small way to help you bless others.

Thank you. Sometimes we turn away when we think we hear a call to help. For me it is often fear that holds me back or a feeling of apprehension that I am not rich enough or good/able enough. But times like this I pray. I have been moved to help at times I did not really expect to.
