 Passion Week / Holy Week – Timeline (TUE)

Today our journey takes us back to the Temple in Jerusalem and then to the Mount of Olives. Jesus prophecies about the destruction of Jerusalem and the end of the age   (later called the ‘Olivet Discourse’).

Also, Judas agrees to betray Jesus…

From the Triumphant entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem to the Last Supper to the Crucifixion to Resurrection Sunday  –  Check out the daily events and scripture references of Jesus and his disciples during Holy Week on our social media sites!

 

Was your bedroom a little brighter last night? Blame it on the first full moon of spring. The “Pink Moon” as it’s called will be big. It will be bright. But contrary to its name, it will not necessarily be pink.  April’s Pink Moon — also called the Egg Moon or Easter Moon — is named after pink wild flowers called wild ground phlox (like FLOCKS), which bloom in early spring. Full moon names originated from different Native American tribes.  SOURCE: CBS News   https://goo.gl/NMq3XE

Praying for San Bernardino.

The community of San Bernardino came together last night to hold a prayer vigil after another deadly school shooting on Monday. A man walked into his estranged wife’s elementary school classroom and opened fire without saying a word, taking her life and the life of an 8-year-old student before turning the gun on himself. A 9-year-old student also was critically wounded.  https://goo.gl/EPZDVy

 

 

“Re-accommodate customers?” The Internet collectively exploded today after United Airlines forcibly ejected a ‘customer’ from an overbooked flight.

Surviving Spring Allergy Season

One of the biggest tips to preventing allergies is to be prepared.

Rainy days typically suppress pollen while windy days move them around and cause more severe symptoms.

*Did you know, depending on your home’s ventilation system, one third of the outside air can still get in? Having your A/C unit circulate or installing a filter with a MERV level of 11 or higher can reduce internal pollen counts even more.

Quick tips include: Shower at night, close your windows and keep your pets clean.
