The Manhattan Declaration

The Manhattan DeclarationLast Friday a historic event took place in Washington DC as Chuck Colson and several other religious leaders announced the release of the Manhattan Declaration. If you missed the BreakPoint® commentary from that day, you'll want to read it. Here's what Chuck Colson shared:

The Manhattan Declaration is a wake-up call-a call to conscience-for the church. It is also crystal-clear message to civil authorities that we will not, under any circumstances, stand idly by as our religious freedom comes under assault.

The Declaration begins by reminding readers that for 2,000 years, Christians have borne witness to the ...

FEARLESS: Facing 2010 with More Trust [and less fear!]

Man jumpingI don't know about you but just about everyone around me has more reason than ever for concern, for fear.  A family member out of work for pushing on two years.  A friend struggling with increasingly debilitating disease.  Graduating students scared about the world they head into shortly.  A once presumed secure Christian family shattered by infidelity.

Really, the idea of a "bright new year" has a bit of a "hollow" ring to it.

Except.

Except for those who choose to trust more and fear less, it is possible to face the new year with confidence, even with joy ...

A King is Born!

"Unto you is born this day ... a Savior, which is Christ the Lord."  (Luke 2:11, KJ)

What distinguishes the birth of our Savior from every other birth in history?  Who were the wise men and how did they fit into God's plan?  What was the star of Bethlehem, and how long after Jesus' birth did the wise men see it?

These are questions I've asked, maybe you have too ... or, at least, someone you know.  And while I may have found the answers, I'm eager to understand more.  That's why I plan to listen to ...

Man holding ComputerYou know the phrase location, location, location? Well, that's exactly what Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is all about. It's not just random words and phrases...it's about making sure people find you and go to you as an authority on your topic.

We live in a world where your "address" on the internet is highly important for revenue, new business, brand awareness, and credibility. It's not simply enough to have as site-you need to rank within the search engines!

This past week I had the privilege of attending an in-depth training on SEO with a highly ...

Anne Graham Lotz and National Bible Week

Anne Graham Lotz (Turqoise)I had the best weekend. 

On Sunday morning, my 7 year old daughter (who had placed her faith in Christ when she was 5) stood in front of our church family and shared that she wanted to be baptized because she loves Jesus and wants to show others that she is on "Jesus' team."

As a mother of three children, I firmly believe that the most important and powerful education we can give to our children, is the knowledge of God. And, the best way to teach our children about God, is from His Word.

As Anne Graham Lotz shares ...

"Social" media. So déclassé, dahling!

Don't get me wrong-I'm a faithful raconteur on Facebook (and obviously going through my French phase!) but it's not a substitute for the real thing.  It's "media" not "life!"

When was the last time you prayed with someone on Facebook?
Or even "twittered" a prayer?

When was the last time you hugged your "fans"?
Or had one of them to dinner?  (Whoa-let's not get too "up close and personal.")

Who do you go to when you've suffered a loss?  "You" Tube?  I don't think so.

This past week one of our leadership received ...
