PRAYER FOR NORTH MINNEAPOLIS 10/23/2017: NORTH MINNEAPOLIS KIDS

Please pray for the children of North Minneapolis. We are asking that the gospel flood these neighborhoods and homes. We are asking God to help us fill in the gaps through loving our neighbors by engaging them, caring for the general physical needs of impoverished homes (food, clothing, health needs, home repair, transportation), and the emotional and spiritual needs of our neighbors (broken & hopeless spirits, sin's power and bondage, false religion and other predatory practices that take advantage of vulnerable people). 

PRAYER FOR NORTH MINNEAPOLIS 10/22-28/2017: NORTH MINNEAPOLIS KIDS

Please join us in prayer for the children of North Minneapolis this week. Please pray once a day that God would enter the darkness and that His hands and feet, His children, would be able to love them by planting gospel seeds and providing for needs that are there in their lives. The future of North Minneapolis is right there looking over the police tape. There are so many children and families to care for here. Please pray we run to, not from, those in need here.

TESTIMONY: HOMELESSNESS

This is a testimonial I gave to a friend a few years back. His church wanted to understand homelessness by getting to know a person who was homeless. This is what I recorded to share with them. Whether you are homeless, still dealing with the pain homelessness can cause, or just want to know and serve the homeless community, hopefully this testimony can help.

LIONS, LAMBS, AND THE BIBLE BELT

Southern culture in the Bible belt is known for its bold gospel witness...almost as much as many others might believe it is known for its hypocrisy. A call to gospel boldness willing to stand and die on the right hill-the gospel.

THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN COME IN DARKNESS

Is the Christian called to not only abstain from sinful practices, but to stay away from sin, evil, darkness wherever it may be present? I used to think so. When we separate from the world to become holy, we "false image" God to ourselves and the world around us. So how should sinful people accurately image God's holiness in the midst of a world full of temptations?

PEW POLL: 19% OF AMERICANS TRUST GOVERNMENT

I got bored for a bit and went over to see what the current Pew Polls had going on. Guns and the election, 

But then I saw the Headline: Beyond Distrust: How Americans View Their Government

I had to read it. Some of it was boredom. Another reason is because I don't naturally trust the government. I had a few years listening to Alex Jones. That was enough to make me suspicious of Twinkies...and the announcement that Twinkies would no longer exist. But then they came back...just like a favorite character on Days of Our Lives or the Young & the Restless or something.
