Take A Stand with Father John

The After Glow – with Fr. John, only on WJMJ; every weekday evening from 7:00 to 8:00.

The disciples were being tossed about in a boat a few miles offshore. They saw Jesus in the middle of their stormy night.  They thought him to be a ghost.   A phantom...  To them, the glow was anything but God.  When we see gentle lights on the horizon, we often have the same reaction.  We dismiss occasional kindness as apparitions, accidents, or anomalies.  Anything but God…

And because we look for the bonfire, we miss the candle.  Because we listen for the shout, we miss the whisper.  But it is in burnished candles that God comes, and through whispered promises he speaks:  “When you doubt, look around; He is closer than you think.” He is In The Afterglow.

“He that is of the opinion money will do everything may well be suspected of doing everything for money.” – Benjamin Franklin
