Weeping and Rejoicing

Carol GarlowBiblical wisdom tells us to "rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep" (Romans 12:15).  Usually we think of that as two disparate moments ... but for the believer, of course, it is a simultaneous response to the news of the homegoing of a saint.

This weekend, after her very arduous battle with cancer, Carol Garlow entered the Lord's presence.  Her husband, Jim, and the family were with her at that most sacred transition of temporal to eternal life.

We give thanks to God for now, at last, the complete healing for Carol.  She "ran the ...

Making the Invisible Kingdom Visible

It's been a year since our friend and BreakPoint®'s founder Chuck Colson passed away.  He fell ill doing what he loved most.  He was speaking about Christian worldview at the Wilberforce Conference when he collapsed.

We'll be remembering Chuck as we gather again for this year's weekend conference.  Like William Wilberforce, for whom the conference is named, Chuck spent decades of his life trying to rouse the Church to take biblical truth into society.

There was nothing Chuck desired more than to see the Church get out of the pew and into the public square.  And ...

Jalloh’s Lunch Box

Lunch boxWhen listening to upcoming programs of The Mercy Minute®, May 7th's message really touched my heart.

The story of Jalloh's lunch box and the mercy that was shown to him really parallels our story. As Don Stephens encourages:

"Opportunities for mercy surround us everyday. Stay alert for a chance to show mercy to someone today."

For me, those words are convicting. How many times do I walk by someone when I could briefly walk into their lives and offer mercy before continuing on? How many times do I avoid when I could embrace?

More times than I would ...

Faithfulness in a Broken World

Have events of the past week reminded you we are living in a sick and broken world?  Wayne Pederson, president of HCJB Global, spoke about this last week on a special edition of "Beyond the Call" (1:00).  This is what listeners to Christian radio heard him say:

Two explosions at the finish line of the Boston marathon have resulted in multiple deaths and multiple injuries.  Concern about more explosions lurk in the background of this devastating event.

The violence in the death of innocent people attending a popular athletic event is a horrible reminder that evil and violence are ...

A Hope Filled Heart

HopeAll of Max's programs speak to my heart and I found that especially true for his upcoming message on May 13th:

 "God never promises to remove us from struggle, He does promise to change the way we look at them."

 Wow. I mean, it makes sense but how often do we look at things in that way? So often we (I) think that as believers, we should be covered somehow from challenges. Until something happens - then I think that God will (and should) sweep in and majestically answer our prayers, solve the problem, take care of things.

 Sometimes ...

A Life for Life

At the April 14th passing of Mrs. Barbara Willke, a favorite poem seems befitting to honor this visionary and leader in the pro-life movement:

The Dash

I read of a man who stood to speak

At the funeral of a friend.

He referred to the dates on her tombstone

From the beginning...to the end.

He noted that first came the date of her birth

And spoke of the following date with tears,

But he said what mattered most of all

Was the dash between those years.

While the poem goes on, the significance of it in regards to ...
