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!

While on the center stage, Max ...

How Blessed

VineyardA few years ago I became intrigued and did a study of the verses in Scripture that begin with those two simple, yet powerful, words ... how blessed.

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 ...

Joni and Friends® - I Can!

Joni and HermanHave you ever had to prove yourself to someone? To dash stereotypes just to be given a fair shake? October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month - an issue which is very important to Joni and Friends®. And - to me.

I still remember the feeling of deflated frustration when an employer of many years ago questioned my ability to handle physically demanding tasks - my outward appearance of being an amputee sometimes pre-judges me before I even say a word. Not only did I work extra hard to prove my ability, I always felt the pressure to over do. Prove them wrong ...

October 31 -- A Christian's Response

Trick or Treat GirlGrowing up in a pastor's family, I always knew that October brought a slew of questions regarding Halloween. Were my parents going to let me Trick or Treat? Would I be doing anything but praying for people during the holiday? Would I attend a "Fall Festival" instead of a "Halloween Party"?

When I was younger, I hated these questions. It felt like people were judging my every move. But now I realize that wasn't it at all. They weren't judging...they were looking for answers. The same is still true today--I hear it at church, see it ...
