This Week’s Faith-Sharing Challenges

Barry-Meguiar-ROTW-IgniteAs a tween, I made friends with our UPS driver; every time he brought a package, I ran out to get it and tell him, "Thanks!  God bless you!"  After several months, my mom told me that he asked her one day if we were Christians.  It was her delight to tell him that we were, and to invite him to church.

On a Sunday morning not much later, I watched our UPS friend walk into church.  And it wasn't just him
he brought his wife, too!  Next, their two sons, adult daughter, and two young grandchildren appeared.

Mayday! Mayday!

Walking out of a Christian bookstore recently, a man stepped towards me and asked, "Are you a Christian?"

I answered, "yes."  He walked away.

I got in my car and thought about how strange the encounter had been.  Though I didn't feel in any danger, it was odd and I have to admit, it made me feel a bit uneasy.  It brought to mind the "Cassie Bernalls" around the world --- those on domestic and foreign ground who are asked this same question  . . . at gun-point.

Anne Graham Lotz shares in a recent blog about the profound impact she felt when ...

"Life Issues®" -- A Cheerleader for Moms!

It was a big week in our house as my first born graduated from college.  Talk about life milestones-- Saturday’s graduation ceremony was definitely that for us!

Among the crowd cheering for the 1100 graduates, there were many proud moms.  No doubt that in a  crowd that size, there were single, young, old and  adoptive moms . . . all united as proud moms doing what we do -- cheerleading for our children.

Leading up to Mother's Day this Sunday, Brad Mattes encourages listeners on "Life Issues®" to be a cheerleader for all moms ...

Missional Mothering

One of the most popular concerns of Revive Our Hearts listeners relates to the issue of motherhood.  The ministry regularly hears from women who ask Nancy Leigh DeMoss for guidance and encouragement in every season of mothering.  Understandably, even women who aren't mothers themselves ask for help in relating to their own mother (because each of us has one!).

Looking ahead to Mother's Day, Nancy brings listeners a special interview with Jani Ortlund on the topic of "Missional Mothering" (airing May 4-8).  During this week of programs, Jani, a pastor's wife and mom of four grown children ...

Marriage on Trial

This week we find our attention fixed, yet again, on our nation's capital as the Supreme Court hears arguments on the definition of marriage, challenging bans on same-sex "marriage" on the grounds of the 14th amendment, claiming that respecting the traditional definition of marriage violates civil rights.  A ruling is expected in June.

At last Saturday's third annual "March for Marriage" rally in Washington DC, Pastor Jim Garlow joined other Christian and political leaders at the US Capitol to speak and stand in defense of marriage.

In a sermon by Jim called, "The Biblical Foundations of the Marriage ...
