Seven Phrases are included as the last words of Christ in sermons at Jubilee Shores UMC leading up to Easter. The the first phrase is:
Father, forgive them.
1. We need forgiveness.
2. God's grace is a gift.
3. Our need to forgive those who have injured us.
Not sure how long the series of Podcasts will include this, but you can listen to all of them now at: Final Words From The Cross
Since my blog posts are notoriously known for their "copy-catness" I should refer you to another blog containing all of the last words of Christ from the cross.

This is a good way to acknowledge this is Good Friday and to meditate on Christ's words as he hung in agony on the cross.

People who know me well have probably heard me make this statement.
I am not at all sure if it is my own statement or if I adopted it from someone else.
I'm married to an extrovert -- a person who never met a stranger. He has been good for me. By observing him, he convinced me there was no future in going through life being painfully shy. I thank him for this many times as I talk to people -- many times people I don't even know very well. I believe this and have sort of adopted his approach to life in general.
I knew he had been voted "something" in high school but could not remember what. I just looked it up -- it was Wittiest, which gave me cause for thought. I recall him saying when he played a game that he played it "by the seat of his pants." Makes sense because he was using his witts. Now, go try to find a definition of the word in a dictionary. Good luck.
Since this blog very frequently is a "copy-cat" of what I've seen somewhere else, some of you might have guessed I would put up a link to this video.
