The Reformation: 500 Years Ago

This found me today, God put it in my path and I felt His nudge to share it with you...

October 31, 1517

Martin Luther, a German priest and professor of theology, became front-page news by inviting debate on a pressing church issue—and touched off a history-shattering reform movement. On October 31, 1517, the 33 year-old Martin Luther posted 95 Theses on the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany. The door functioned as a bulletin board for various announcements related to academic and church affairs.

More Love

Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening].  Love never fails [it never fades nor ends].

And now there remain: faith [abiding trust in God and His promises], hope [confident expectation of eternal salvation], love [unselfish love for others growing out of God’s love for me], these three [the choicest graces]; but the greatest of these is love.

She Puts in a Full Day

She gets up before everyone else and begins another day.

Most days, her first meeting is with God; a few moments while the coffee is brewing or while it is still and quiet. Still and quiet will melt away in a matter of minutes and it won’t be that way again for 14-16 hours, when all heads are on the pillows and the wiping and arranging is done for the day.

Provision and Protection

We pray you are well and enjoying the summer days. As you may have seen or heard, our Zoweh Team is growing. We are welcoming Scott and Sherry Jennings, Greg and Kryssy Sailors, and Patrick and Jamie O’Bryan. More on these all stars in the weeks ahead but for now, we want to invite you to cover them with prayer. Also, these days of summer traditionally have Robin and me working on the Zoweh Allies (donor team) and our Administration in general (database, web renovations, and accounting).

Sunrise on a Battlefield

It feels like a Sunrise on a Battle Field...
the day after it’s won.

A Heart of a Warrior Weekend Attendee

Dear BraveHearts,

What an incredible act of God we witnessed this past weekend. 300 men getting away with God for 300 different reasons and, yet, for 1 reason… to connect with Him. It was hard fought on so many fronts and glorious at the same time. That is how Spiritual Battles go.

Are you ready?

It is a tricky question.

When I am being loaded into a roller coaster with one of my daughters and I look at her and ask, Are You Ready? she is all grins and nods as she holds on to the safety bars just lowered all around her, and with great anticipation, we roll.

On the other hand…

When we are leaving the house at about the same time we should have already been there, and I ask my wife sweetly, Are You Ready? I don’t get the same grin or expression. As a matter of fact, I ought not to write about what I sometimes get. Needless to say, I shouldn’t have asked.

The Remedy for Relational Drift

Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder.

Relational Drift... It seems at one time or another, every friendship, every marriage, every relationship experiences it... it's inevitable. Circumstances can add to the challenge. Whether someone said something they shouldn’t or didn’t say something they should’ve, all relationships have days or seasons in which they cool.
