For this month--here's what we posted to our News & Insights section!

Sharing the "good" message!

"Good" (hao) = Mother and ChildAs a child, I was forced to learn Chinese characters.  My parents told me that it would be "good for me." Little did I know what they really meant! Knowing some of the basic Chinese characters was beneficial not only for understanding the language, but it helped me understand the Chinese (and by extension the Korean) culture. 

You may have already known this, but some Chinese characters were developed in a pictographic form - the characters looked like the object they represented.  For example, the character for 'fire', 火, is a pictographic representation of two flames above a pair of logs ...

Jesus Over All

How do you convince a non-believer today that Jesus was God? Over 2,000 years ago there were many people who watched Him heal the sick, raise the dead, and subdue demons ... yet they didn't believe! 

This month, John MacArthur shares with listeners four compelling accounts from the Gospel of Mark that explain the purpose behind Jesus' amazing displays of power and what His miracles then have to do with how we minister to others today.  It's a new two-week study that makes the case that Jesus is, indeed, over all (airs November 8-19).

Compassion is the Church's best apologetic

Pastor Max Lucado at the Make A Difference ConcertThis weekend I attended the "Make A Difference" concert with Max Lucado.  The concert was an incredible experience filled with upbeat and uplifting music by TobyMac, Third Day and Michael W. Smith.  The musicians skillfully ushered everyone into heartfelt worship as they consistently gave God the glory.  What stood out to me the most, however, was Pastor Max's presentation of God's "plan A" solution for the problem of poverty and the caring of orphans and widows - the Church! 

"Compassion is the Church's best apologetic," he said.  I couldn't agree more!

And this weekend, winging home from time with 4000 deeply committed women in Fort Worth, I got to thinking how true it is ... how blessed we are serving at Ambassador.

I just spent three days listening to Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Crawford Loritts, Kay Arthur, Mary Kassian, James MacDonald (and a few more!) at True Woman '10.  Mix the impact of these gifted communicators with the music of Keith & Kristyn Getty (and, ok, a ...
