Have you seen the bumper sticker, “If Jesus is your copilot, switch seats”? It points out an often forgotten truth, that Jesus didn’t come to earth to carry out our wills; we came to carry out His.  He’s the head of the Church, not us. But let me invite you to consider a different question.  […]

A common question I receive from people who may not be familiar with 4Tucson is, “What does it mean to be Jesus centered?” The answer to that question actually starts with a different […]


Peace with God
