No Casper Here -

To find out why this clearly shows the “Gospel” of Judas to be bogus, visit us this week at the Crossroads Initiative website!

From St. Hildegard's Kitchen
The 12th-century Benedictine Abbess Hildegard of Bingen was blessed with an astonishing array of talents. She was, among other things, a mystic, naturalist, visionary, and composer. Hildegard was also granted, by means of heavenly visions, in-depth knowledge about human nutrition. She believed "foods of joy" revitalized us and helped preserve good health in every sphere--physical, spiritual, and psychological.
With a focus on good health and vegetables and herbs from the garden, From Saint Hildegard's Kitchen makes a wonderful gift for the cooks in your life--including you!
Now, famed French chef Jany Fournier-Rosset has mined from Hildegard's writings a collection of tasty recipes--you'll find everything from simple jams to chestnut soufflé, from spiced wine to Tunisian ratatouille.
Readers will also find a brief biography of Hildegard and table graces from Saint Benedict and others

First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community, 10-Part Study (4 DVDs)
The conflicts of the early Christians in Corinth were in many ways similar to our struggles today as Christians. With divisions, immorality, persecution, and other trials of the faithful, the message of St. Paul to the Corinthians is a much-needed message for our own times. First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community explores the key elements that the apostle Paul introduced to a new and growing Church. St. Paul taught the Corinthians about the nature of grace and the Church as the Body of Christ. In addition, he introduced the Corinthian Christians to the most powerful gift of all, the Eucharist.
In this DVD series Dr. Tim Gray provides comprehensive teaching and commentary on Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians. Each 30 minute talk is designed to follow a lesson in the First Corinthians Study Set.
