COLUMN:All times are extraordinary times for followers of Jesus

"See what large letters I make when I am writing in my own hand!" - Galatians 6:11 (NRSV)

This may seem like an odd biblical verse to start out with, but there is a good reason for it. The apostle Paul pens this line in his letter to the church he founded in Galatia, which was having some difficulties with the new Christians falling away into non-Christian practices. He writes this phrase near the end of the letter in an effort to emphasize how important he considers these matters, and how the church there should heed his admonitions. He also wants to make clear that he cares enough to make the effort to write to them personally and directly.
