  • Jesus forever challenges us to think “outside the box.” He says to bear fruit the grain of wheat must first die. He says divine light is present in human darkness. He says to be a leader is to be a servant who washes feet. For Jesus, and for those who would follow him, “mystery” is not a problem to be solved but truth to be forever discovered and lived. This is the antithesis of soft, comfortable religion; it is rather quite gutsy, challenging, worth the journey of a lifetime.

  • We all know that we should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day, but many of us don’t get the recommended servings. Fruits and vegetables are important to our diet, because they provide necessary nutrients and are high in dietary fiber and low in calories, fat and cholesterol. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that you make half your plate fruits and vegetables.
