โ€œUnless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains a single grain. But if it dies, it yields a rich harvest.โ€ - John 12:24


Christ dying and rising shows us how to live, by dying to our impatience, unhealthy behaviours, bad relationships, selfishness, or dying in the plans that we make for ourselves, for the greater good of the community, our family, or the world. So that we can become the yeast of the dough and the salt of the world.


Death does not have the final word. If I allow myself, the husk of my being, to dissolve and to melt away, I will live with the Spirit of the Risen Christ pulsing through my veins, bringing me a joy far beyond anything I could measure and imagine, making me another Christ, a gift to the world.
