Burn Baby Burn


Burn Baby, Burn

Question: What sport burns, in six minutes, the same amount of energy as two non-stop, back-to-back basketball games?

The answer is crewing.

That fact was news to me, even though I have two daughters who both rowed from their 7th grade summer all the way into college.  I happily spent countless hours at high school and college regattas waiting for those magic seven minutes of each child's race.  I'm sure I complained a couple of times during the passing of all those events.  But as painful as the waiting might have been, it was ...

Spiritual Fingerprints

The Heart God Revives

Are you a proud person or a broken person?  Nancy Leigh DeMoss asked that question to a group of ministry workers twenty years ago this month.  Their response was surprising, and those in attendance still remember that message twenty years later.  Listeners will hear how God used a message of brokenness on Revive Our Hearts programs airing July 6-10.

Nancy says, God wants to restore our "first love" for Jesus, rekindle the fire of devotion that once burned brightly in our hearts, reconcile broken relationships, and rebuild the parts of our lives that are in a state of disrepair.  In ...
