  1. Dear Steve, as I have already commented on this post over at Christian Blessings, I will just add another heartfelt “Thank you” for such a very practical way of connecting the death and Resurrection of Our Lord to our own ups and downs–and the only true source of our permanent “up”!


  2. Steve, I was at an MDRT meeting in Dallas a number of years ago and heard him do this message live and in full glory to God; it was awesome, and I have never forgotten it. Happy Easter!

    1. Good to hear from you, David. I could not remember the name of the preacher I heard deliver this message. He was a nationally known Black preacher. Do you remember his name?


    1. The first time I heard this message I was mesmerized. What a message. Thanks, and have a blessed Resurrection Day.
