Simple and important reminder by Mike that we shouldn’t just pray for people, we should pray with them.
After talking with Shirley for about 5 minutes or so, and as I saw the tears in her eyes, I asked Shirley if I could pray with her. Not simply FOR her, but WITH her. She nodded her head and held her hands to her face, shielding me from her now-falling tears. I prayed a short prayer right there in the restaurant with her, and when I finished she wrapped her arms around me, put her head on my shoulders, and cried. And cried, and cried, and cried. I didn’t know what to say, so I said nothing. I just comforted Shirley for those few raw moments. Neither of us seemed to care much about whatever else was going on around us.
Read it all.
It occurred to me that Obama is “That 70’s President,” deftly combining the bad ideas and ineffectiveness of Carter with the ethics and paranoia of Nixon. Just sayin’.
William Lane Craig debates radical skeptics on the resurrection of Jesus — great apologetics post, as usual, by the Wintery Knight.
Australia considers bill to criminalize free speech by Christians — as I often say, coming soon to a country near you.
Check out some of the sample articles of Salvo, a phenomenal magazine. Great content and presentation on key issues of day. I think it targets college aged / 20’s types but could be of interest to anyone.
The abortionist and his #1 foe — Late-term abortionist Larry Carhhart and pro-lifer Troy Newman are analyzed. CNN owes me a new irony meter, because these quotes broke it:
He glances at the poster of [murdered late-term abortionist George] Tiller. “I don’t want his death to be in vain.”
“I have abortion on the front of this building, because I think abortion isn’t a four-letter word. It’s a part of life.”
Tomorrow, just before and after performing abortions, Carhart will pray at the bedside of his patients.
And did I miss it, or did CNN fail to mention the pesky fact about the pro-lifer who was recently murdered?
This quote makes more sense:
What part of wanting to save a baby’s life is so bad that it makes people hate me?
The answer is that abortion makes a lot of money for some people and gives a false illusion of sexual freedom and equality for others.
