Pastor Shiku brings an encouraging message of waiting upon the Lord in everything we do. Maybe you know someone who is struggling with waiting upon the Lord and you could share this message with them and you never know, God might just have a word for them through this podcast.
Embrace's work is two-fold: providing services to at-risk, foster and adopted children and families in our local community and equipping new and existing church orphan care ministries across the country. Our local efforts provide us with the experience and expertise to speak to other churches regarding what works and is needed. It is never our goal to force our vision or the details of our programs into the context of other churches; however, there are some comparable components and philosophies true for every arena. Below you'll find a broad overview of what Embrace Texas does on the ground locally as well as our work in ministry development nationally. We believe we must multiply ministry in strategic partnerships with other churches in order to fully answer the biblical mandates to "take up the cause of the fatherless" (Isaiah 1:17).
TIME Magazine's "Persons of the Year" - Deserving or Disturbing?
TIME Magazine now on newsstands highlights the "Person of the Year" and six significant runners-up. What it reveals raises lots of legitimate questions.
Before we review the list, consider this is not a popularity test but rather a tribute to people making the greatest impact today. Recognition is bestowed by the editors on the persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or ill, and embodied what was important about the year.
If you thought character and noble achievements were critical components, think again. There are no Mother Theresa-like figures gracing the pages.
Every child has a story. For 2.7 million American children, that story is filled with the abandonment, loneliness, and shame that come from having a mom or dad in prison. For many, it may also include following their parents down the same destructive road to incarceration.
Angel Tree, a program of Prison Fellowship, reaches out to the children of inmates and their families with the love of Christ. This unique program gives your church an opportunity to share Christ’s love by helping to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the families of prisoners.
I'd bet your newspaper has published op-eds from marijuana proponents. I'd also wager that many of you have thought about responding but didn't know exactly what to say, right?
Because this has been a major issue facing us in America, let us offer some assistance. Credible responses are needed lest more folks be deceived by seemingly scholarly articles that are increasingly common endorsing marijuana legalization.
Take a little time to listen with us as we talk about the ongoing aspects of foster care/ Orphans and this world wide cause. We talk with Debi Tengler of Arrow Children and Family Ministries about Kinship and the role of the family in foster care and the importance of what we do each and every day.
Join Larry and Kenneth as we discuss the 5 Myths to Refute Convincingly yet Compassionately that Planned Parenthood is putting out about domestic extreme activity trying to close down Planned Parenthood.
A calamity is "an event resulting in great loss and misfortune." Certainly what took place recently in a Planned Parenthood abortion center fits that description. Our thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to all affected by this tragedy. We also disavow any violence in that it is fundamentally against anything characterized as pro-life.
The 57 year-old deranged drifter, who entered the building intent on killing people, did not act for any twisted religious reasons, thank God! He did behave in a manner diametrically opposed to everything the sanctity of life/pro-life movement represents. "No more baby parts!" was his rant as he gunned down the innocent victims.
