75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz Concentration Camp

International Holocaust Memorial Day - Remembering Auschwitz

There were rumors. There were reports. There was speculation. But seeing the horror forced everyone to face the reality of what had been happening. Seventy-five years ago, the first glimpses were seen. The horror was recognized. Seventy-five years ago, the world saw. On January 27, 1945, 75 years ago, the Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated.

January 28, 2020, DAY 31: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR: Joshua 21-24

January 28, 2020

25On that day Joshua made a covenant for the people, and there at Shechem he reaffirmed for them decrees and laws. 26And Joshua recorded these things in the Book of the Law of God. Then he took a large stone and set it up there under the oak near the holy place of the Lord.
27“See!” he said to all the people. “This stone will be a witness against us. It has heard all the words the Lord has said to us. It will be a witness against you if you are untrue to your God.”
28Then Joshua dismissed the people, each to their own inheritance.  
(Joshua 24:25-28, NIV)

Journey 2020: Vision For Christ - Planting the Seeds

Journey 2020: Vision For Christ - Planting the Seeds

Yup. We are starting this study off with a double header! And why not?! The parables are related and go together nicely, so let’s get started!

Parable of the Growing Seed
He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.”
(Mark 4:26-29, NIV)

Parable of the Mustard Seed
Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”  
(Mark 4: 30-32 , NIV) (Also found in Matthew 13:31-32 and Luke 13:18-19)
