Admirer or Disciple?

Luke 9:23-25 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self? Do you know the name Irvin S. Cobb? You would, if you were keeping up with celebrities in the 1920s, ’30s, and ’40s.

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your so

“You give them something to eat”

Last week some friends of friends posted a picture of themselves at the Dunker Church at Antietam. It seems they were visiting the historic park and this church is one of the sites that has been restored to its original state at the time of the civil war. The building was used by both Confederate and Union troops during the bloody battle. I had never heard of this church, though I knew about the horrific Battle of Antietam.
