Mirror of Jesus’ Life

Last Friday we remembered the horror of September 11, 2001 and the 3000+ people who lost their lives in the attack on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and the plane that went down in Shanksville, PA.   We also remembered the heroes from that day, the fireman and first responders who ran into the burning buildings to save people’s lives, and…
