St. Paul wrote one last letter to young pastor Timothy from death row, his “green mile,” in a Roman dungeon.    The old lion in winter sounded a warning:  “Know this:  In the last days there will be terrible times…” (2 Timothy 3:1  EHV).

THE MARRIAGE ARENA

Paul wrote one last letter to young pastor Timothy from death row, his “green mile,” in a Roman dungeon. The old lion in winter sounded a warning:  “Mark this:  There will be terrible times in the last days.” Today we mark the end of the liturgical church year.  Our thoughts turn to the end of this present world.  We see the truth of Paul’s warning all around us, don’t we?  The family feuds, rebellious children, irresponsible parents, recreational sex, gay…
