The Gospels, The Good News, tell the story of our Lord and His ministry. They are imbued with a love and power that changes hearts and turns our world in new directions. Libraries of books have been written in the study of the words of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. You could spend your entire life studying and never scratch the surface of the treasures contained in these works. However, there are four words or essential pillars that summarize the Gospel message. These pillars represent the structure given to us so we can live with confidence, strength and faith. Today, more than ever, we need a faith that works through love and wherein our spirit is made strong in hope.
