10:34 PM Today’s entry in the Crosswalk weblog is called Truth Can Be a Very Dangerous Thing. 5:24 PM A few months ago we donated 2000 copies of An Anchor for the Soul to the Library of Hope program that places Christian literature in prisons across America. Here is a note of thanks from George Arnold:
What a blessing to receive the 2000 copies of Pastor Rays book. We will immediately begin to include several copies of his book in every Library shipped and I know the Lord will use it to touch many hearts. We are only two years out and the ministry seems to be growing in leaps and bounds. I think it has something to do with Mathew 25:43. The Lord is doing a great harvesting in the prisons today and many are coming to faith in Christ. We have seen so much of the body of Christ beginning to respond to the cries of those who are hidden away in the prison houses. May the Lord richly bless you and the Calvary Memorial Congregation.
5:15 PM First Watch begins in 12 hours, 40 minutes. Here’s the scoop from the weekly FW email (hat tip to Rob Gaskill):
Join us this Thursday for bagel, egg & cheese breakfast sandwiches with sausage patties on the side plus a complete selection of lower cholesterol breakfast treats and plenty of good coffee. Meet Marine Lance Corporal David Tyler, home on leave from Iraq, will share his insights from his tour of duty in the Middle East. The topic that week has been changed to The Battle for Self-Control, appropriate to Davids comments. Men dont miss this opportunity to hear an eyewitness account from a godly young man who has been there!
11:52 AM A good report from Darin Weil on last weekend’s Power Connection Junior High retreat:
Our theme was On Your Knees, so it was a weekend focused on prayer. The highlight of the trip was a prayer walk we did on Sunday morning. We broke up into groups of about 5 students and one leader and they walked to various spots at the camp for extended times of prayer. The feedback I received is that those times were filled with a genuine atmosphere of prayer and worship. Later that night we ended our time on our knees together. There was something powerful about seeing 45 Junior High Students on their knees crying out to God in repentance and submission. For me personally, I came away with a stronger burden to see more Junior Students confronted with the reality of Christ.
