The Friday 5 from First Baptist Hilton Head 
April 18, 2014


“Christ’s resurrection changed Mary from a mourner into a messenger; it changed Thomas from a doubter into a believer; it changed Peter from a denier into a preacher and it changed Paul from a persecutor into a missionary. For early Christians the Easter event became an Easter experience:  a cleansing, life-changing, transforming experience! Today, that Easter event is still the greatest hope in a world of fear and confusion.” Dr. Paul S. James
