The meaning of TWIL

The prologue to Saint John’s Gospel introduces God’s Son as the Word. This life-giving Word—spoken down through the ages—became flesh and lived in our midst. For all of Christian history, the Word is intimately connected with all of human life. It is the purpose of TWIL (“The Word Is Life”) to bring the Gospel to life and to bring life to the Gospel. The blog will feature reflections on the Gospel in the contemporary world with all its joys, sorrows, and complexities. Using everyday life and current issues as a vehicle for proclaiming the Gospel has been the approach of the Pflaum Publishing Group and its parent company, Bayard Inc. It is my hope that these short reflections will help the readers see the world through a Gospel lens and experience the reality that the Word and life are inseparable.
