A definition of sister and brother

Today is Siblings Day, a day observed in some parts of the world. The date as such, at least in terms of world history, is insignificant, but worth exploring nevertheless to look at some well-known wisdom.

It takes passion …

Passion, enthusiasm, love. This is what it takes to serve God and our neighbour. And this is what motivates Christians to do good and to contribute to society at large.

Don’t be offended. Love Him!

Palm Sunday in Baia Mare (Romania) did away with any uncertainties there may have been. Although the congregation there sang the well-known hymn “Mighty God, we praise Thy name”, Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider called on the congregation and all other Christians to not take offence at Jesus.

Mission is possible

Credo (I believe) and confessio (I profess) are two entirely different things. Many keep their belief to themselves because they are not able to explain and describe it in detail or because they are afraid of going public with it.

God’s love is indestructible

We are celebrating a grave today, an empty one, because this emptiness entails a doctrine: the angry God is no longer among us, long live the loving God. And this love gives life. A somewhat different approach to Easter.

The seven messages for Good Friday

Good Friday is a profound day in its quiet solemnity. It is filled with emotions. It is peaceful, but also depressing. Jesus’ death on the cross puts us to shame. All He wanted was to bring peace and make the world a better place. And where was the gratitude for it?

Hearing the entire message of Jesus

Recognising the truth in all its clarity? Even in the realm of faith this is only possible for a moment. Before we know it, we descend from these peaks into the valley of everyday life. We can nevertheless stay on course on our way to glory. Here is how.

An architect of historic foundations

Karl the Great is what many called him affectionately: today, 25 years to the day, one of the most influential District Apostles passed away. He did not only leave the New Apostolic Church with a historic self-image, but also with a few cultural peculiarities.

Passion Week: a special kind of journal

The events between Palm Sunday and Easter are full of suspense: a man is betrayed, scorned, accused, arrested, and killed. Jesus goes through hell and reaches heaven. A timeline from the Gospel of Mark.

In the service of the community

Welcome to a remote village in Brazil, a former settlement for escaped slaves. This is the village where Juvenal Basílio da Costa has committed himself to serve his neighbour. He has an organising role in the political community, and is the rector of the New Apostolic congregation.

Volunteers provide ongoing help

To really make a difference requires more than goodwill and helpfulness. The key word here is “persistence”. Because those who provide lasting help, provide the best help. Following are three examples of ongoing projects by New Apostolic charities on three continents.

Chosen, now what?

Called and chosen. This central concept from the gospel implies both inclusion as well as exclusion. How is that possible, seeing that God loves all of mankind? Thoughts from a divine service by the Chief Apostle.

More than bread

Man does not live by bread alone. That goes without saying. But there are many people who do not even have that. And then there are those who possess so much that a piece of bread means little to them. In the Bible, bread symbolises life.
