I was sifting through some old papers today and came across a few thoughts a friend wrote down a while back about evangelism. His original thought is in italics; my comments are bulleted.

Death will be swallowed up by everlasting life (1 Corinthians 15:54; 2 Corinthians 5:4). "The wolf and the lamb shall graze together; … Continue reading Jesus Came to Heal Us

My dad had known him for quite some time and when Dave became a Christian, Dad was awestruck. Dave started coming to my dad's men's group on Saturday mornings.

I don't know how many of you have heard of the book series PostSecret by Frank Warren, but I've read all four books available and let me say, it's quite moving, disturbing, breathtaking, and spiritually heartbreaking. PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard. People are … Continue reading PostSecret, at its Core, Shows the World’s Need for Redemption
