Birthing Vision

Next Step #755 – November 24, 2022 – From Thanksgiving to the beginning of Advent, more than just a calendar season, here is a primer on a new look at an ancient subject. Death before Birth: The importance of preparedness for life events and spiritual awakening. Up close and personal: Reflections on the iAct vision of Gabriel Stauring & Katie Jay Scott, one year after their passing. Picking up the “Cross” as a metaphor to keep the vision alive and working.

Beat the Odds

Next Step #753: Here the story of beating the odds. While the world’s largest lotto (~$2B) took place this week, the real winner went by unnoticed, in Nashville where the astronomical odds of survival were beaten via a child’s baptism. This is the story of a miracle, bigger than Vegas-winnings and what happens here should not stay here.

Coinciding Scriptures

Next Step with Fr. Vazken #750: When scripture coincides with life events of a priest, a signal is sent to focus on the mission of Christ, the Church and the minister of the Gospel. A look at Luke 4:16-22: The mystery of importance and centrality for life. What about the “brokenhearted,” why are they overlooked, or just a clerical error? Favorite vs. Importance.
