Christianity and racial discrimination are incompatible. Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider explains why in this video clip from one of his sermons. Today is International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
The events between Palm Sunday and Easter are full of suspense: a man is betrayed, scorned, accused, arrested, and killed. Jesus goes through hell and reaches heaven. A timeline from the Gospel of Mark.
It all begins on Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter. People are standing at the side of the road cheering Jesus Christ as He rides into Jerusalem on a donkey. It is a moving sight. Solemn. Festive. Loud. This is something people do not see every day. They acclaim their king, throw Him kisses, stretch their arms out to Him, and are full of good thoughts for Him. He is considered a miracle worker, a good preacher. He is one of them, a man of authority. Jesus lets them be. He knows that His hour has come. He spends the night with His friends in Bethany. He wants to rest. Bethany is a place where He finds peace and quiet before the storm. Continue reading

Jesus sent His Apostles to help all in need; let us have empathy for all souls, here and in the beyond and have the desire to contribute to their salvation. Continue reading

Coming from Micronesia, Apostle Lodewick visited Tama Congregation on the Second Advent weekend in preparation for the transition of the congregations in Japan to the Australian District which is planned for autumn 2018.
After a fellowship on Saturday afternoon when he was welcomed according to Japanese custom with Koto music and had a chance to practice calligraphy, the Apostle gathered the brothers in the Ministry and explained them what it means to trust in God. He referred to an aphorism which says, “Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.” He then told them that our Chief Apostle, when he was in Australia quoted this aphorism, and added, “our hope is in God.”
Our magazine “community” No. 4/2017 has been published and can be downloaded from this Webpage. Print copies will be distributed in the congregations. Continue reading
