God’s Women – The Widow of Zarephathwomen of zarephath

Sometimes God asks big things of us. Suppose God asked you to give the little that you have and you do give it.

That is what the widow of Zarephath did. Fr. Mike tells the story of this wonderful lady who lived in the north (present day Lebanon) at the time of the prophet Elijah. As you may remember, Elijah was the only prophet of Yahweh. Most of the country worshipped the god called Baal. Elijah had left his own country and so was lonely and without provisions. He met this widow and asked her for water and flour cakes.

In great generosity she gave him all she had for herself and her only son. Lo and behold! God blessed her abundantly with food for the rest of her life. Her only son dies and guess what happens?
Fr. Mike compares this story to the ones in the New Testament about the widow of Naim and the story of Lazarus.

He then talks about how this story affects us today. How do we care for widows and widowers today? What can we do to help them? What is the reality of our nursing homes? Is there a limit to our generosity? Fr. Mike also spends some time talking about how God loves all people and the ramifications of that in our modern world.

Don’t miss God’s Women – The Widow of Zarephath on TBN Wednesday October 21 at 11:30 a.m. ET (8:30 a.m. PT), on the Church Channel (TCC) Tuesday, October 20 at 11:30 a.m. ET (8:30 a.m. PT) and on Friday October 24 at 9:30 a.m. ET(6:30 a.m. PT) and then 24/7 on our website www.wordnet.tv.

What would you do if God called you to live and work in a ghetto with all that danger? That is what happened to Theresa Gartland.

Fr. Mike asks Theresa how this came about. She attended Catholic grade school, but it was in high school when she became involved in community service project. There she fell in love working with children -at-risk in the NE Washington DC area. She attended college and majored in political science. But God didn’t leave her alone. She joined a Response Ability project that brought her to LA to work in an inner city parish school.

From there she worked at Verbum Dei, a Jesuit Cristo Rey High School in Watts, Los Angeles. This young lady never stops!

She tells success stories and reveals why she does what she does. You won’t want to miss Take Charge with Theresa Gartland.

Fifteen Faces of Godmike's book 2

There are times in our lives, and especially in the life of our country, when we are all enduring unusual stress.  This book gives us reason to hope. Michael Manning is a gifted writer and has the gentle ability to reach into the human heart, especially the hurting heart, and bring comfort and healing and hope, a hope that comes from the reality that God is nearby, and that in spite of what some cynics may say, he does enter into our lives and delicately arranges things so we find ourselves on a peaceful, sunny shore, far from the troubled waters where we were sure we would drown. Fr. Joseph F. Girzone

Fifteen Faces of God is an in depth study of the parables of Jesus relating to us the face of his Father.

No one likes to be criticized. We want people to appreciate and support what we say and do. Yes, sometimes, criticism is justified. We need to be honest and admit the truth. But sometimes it's just plain wrong. How do we deal with unjust criticism?
