Freedom Sunday is March 13. Is Your Church Registered?

There are more than 27 million slaves today, more than any other time in human history. This is a great injustice and it's time for the Church to rise up and take its role as leaders in the fight for freedom. We have the means, we have the manpower, but above all else, we have the message of Jesus, our Great Liberator: justice, mercy, love and grace. Let's rise up Church, this is our hour! You can register your church and download resources here.

"This is harder than we dreamed, but I believe that's what the promise is for." A great song celebrating the covenant of marriage :)

If we (the Church) are not the preeminent leaders in the fight for justice and in the showing of mercy for the weak, then we are allowing the world to look more like Jesus than we do.

Family Legacy

Visited my cool grandfather today (on Lunar New Year 2011). A mighty man of God. As an elder (not a pastor - though that was his dream, but because of the Korean War, he had to stop seminary) he planted many churches throughout Korea, is still on the board of directors for many universities, high schools, and hospitals, and raised up 7 children who serve the Lord faithfully to this day. A true hero of the faith. 
 His prayer was always that God would raise up a pastor in our family. I am the first. I am a product of his prayers, and I thank God for his prayers.

Stop the Super Bowl Traffick

This Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday. The Super Bowl is one of the biggest gatherings for sports fans in the world, but the city that hosts the biggest game of the year is also the place where the largest amount of human and child trafficking happens in the US. The Super Bowl is a magnet for human trafficking each year.

To help raise awareness of the evils of trafficking, Traffick911 will be hosting a Tailgate Party on Saturday February 5 in Dallas (the host city of this years Super Bowl). If you or someone you know is attending the Super Bowl this year, I encourage you to celebrate with a purpose by stopping by this event which will have some great speakers, musicians and activities.

And for everyone else outside of Dallas, let's pray for protection for all the women and children who are being enslaved for the purpose of trafficking. And when the commercials come on, let's lift up a prayer asking for their freedom and for God to bring justice to the oppressors. Instead of just praying for your favorite team to win, let's pray for the true underdogs to win - the silent voices of the women and children in need of our help. Let's pray for Team Justice to win this Super Bowl Sunday. Let's put an end to the Super Bowl traffick.
