Journey On! 

  "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord"
(Romans 8:38-39).

Trials to Triumphs: I Wanted to DO Something, But......

A snowshoeing excursion on the March 2008 Journey! "I did NOT want to go on a Journey, but God didn't let that stop Him!"

This is a testimony, but it is also a challenge. To each of us who wish we could help draw others towards God's love, for those of us who wonder if God can use us, and if so, how? I hope this testimony of God's grace will be a blessing, an encouragement, and a practical thought on how we can do something for God's kingdom.

Life to Life: How Much Do You Know? Part II

Christ on the Sea Last newsletter I was really mean, (or really nice depending on how you look at it), and I didn’t finish the whole study.  But here we are again, and if you're still interested you can read the rest of my train of thought.

We started with a quiz, just to see how much you knew about some important facts. Then we went on to go through Ephesians 3:19 to try and figure out what God wants us to know, and what the results are.  We left off after the “Fullness of God” and wondering how we get it. So here is the next part! 

For those of you who are just joining us, click here to see the first half of this post.

Messages for Life: Eric Liddell, Pure Gold

The Story of Eric LiddellThis is the story of a committed and faithful servant of God who was willing to go against the flow even to the point of giving up his Olympic dream in order to follow his convictions!  Always kind and thoughtful he showered others with love and compassion even up to his death in a Chinese concentration camp.

If you want to be inspired by the life of a humble, and yet truly mighty man of God, here is a book that can do just that.

Stories to Enjoy: Would You Give Your Life? He Did.

For the beginning of our year, we have a much more serious story to tell you.  But don't let its seriousness rob you of the unbelievable evidence of God's power and goodness even in the midst of tragedy. 

Eating dinner together a year before they're father's death.

The person you are going to hear about is a real person, the family, a real family, I know that because I know them.  Take this to heart, and allow God to use this story to make you more aware of the needs of others, and more willing to give yourself to show others the love of Christ as He uses you to meet those needs.
