Good News - November 2023

The one person for one day that I would have loved to be in his shoes (golf shoes that is) is my buddy Bernhard when he won the Masters for the second time in 1993. Not only because he won the greatest golf tournament on earth, but because he had recently become a believer in Jesus as his Lord and Savior and the last day of the tournament was on Easter Sunday and Bernhard was able to give Jesus the credit that day for getting him through the battle of the mind and come out victorious! Romney C. Rogers, Managing Partner, Rogers Morris Ziegler LLP If I could live one of the days of someone else’s life, it would be Peter from the Bible on the day that he saw the resurrected Jesus. Peter is known for his boldness and not always saying the right thing at the right time. He stepped out to walk on water, but then he even denied knowing Jesus. But after a period of hopelessness seeing Jesus die on the cross, thinking that was the end, he was one of the first that Jesus appeared to when He rose from the dead. Peter was then restored and went from being a fisherman to being one of the great leaders of the church. This is a picture of our life before and after Jesus, who we were and who we are in Him. What a powerful day that must have been. Steve Daigle, Campus Pastor, Calvary Chapel Parkland On Thursday, December 4, 1783, General George Washington received the officers of the victorious Continental Army to say farewell in the Long Room of Fraunces Tavern, located on the corner of Pearl and Broad streets in lower Manhattan. I’ve always wondered, since visiting the site as a 3rd grader going to school in NYC, what it would be like that day saying good bye to his officers. He had fought the unwinnable war against the strongest army in the world and won against great odds….it was with these men he had a great triumph…who knew what was next? Steve Solomon, Area Director, CBMC South Florida It would be Henry David Thoreau of Walden Pond fame back in 1845, where he built a little cabin in Concord, Mass., and lived there by himself for two years, two weeks and two days to see what his purpose in life was all about. Like St. Francis of Assisi, he preached simplicity. His "Civil Disobedience" philosophy is still being practiced today by countless activists, especially peaceful myself. From Mahatma Gandhi to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who both preached Thoreau's Transcendentalist and peaceful way of life. I was introduced to Thoreau when I was 15 years old while attending Christopher Columbus High School in Miami and my life has never been the same. That is why I moved to Palm Beach County in the Year 2000 to design and build a beautiful log home by my own "Walden Pond." Willy Guardiola, Christian on a Mission Wants to Know… Laura C.
