Presentation of Peoples Temple and its members in their own words: through articles, tapes, letters, photographs and other items.

13 arrested for taking the demand for the closure of SOA into the streets on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC

Police on foot, bicycle, motorcycle and in vehicles prohibited free passage of the march, limiting SOA Watch activists abilities to be heard and seen by Congressional staff.

The Mustard Seed and the Leaven

He said therefore, “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his garden, and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.”

And again he said, “To what shall I compare the kingdom of God? It is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, until it was all leavened.” (Luke 13:18-21)

Did Jesus ever experience a panic attack?

“I certainly don’t think what I experienced in the form of a panic attack was anything close to what Jesus went through at this moment. However, I do realize that Jesus experienced something similar in his life and I can draw closer to him as result of this awareness.” Continue reading
