Shaun King pastor of Courageous Church in Atlanta has been asking for donations on twitter/facebook for their big give to raise 290 school uniforms and a present for every kid at a school in Atlanta. They accomplished that mission. Read about it here and watch it below:
Man I cried like a baby when they opened the gifts! So glad I got to participate in that. I didn’t give much – but look at what God can do when a few people give a very little. I don’t regret sending $10 bucks, but perhaps you regret not sending something? I say that to encourage you to give, not to make you feel bad. Next time your faced with an opportunity to give don’t hold back and end up regretting it!
If you have ever made a mistake and needed forgiveness then you need to watch this and start reading potsc.com. So just so we are clear, that means you. Yes you have made a mistake at some point in your life. People of the Second Chance is all about grace and forgiveness. Take for example Michael Vick. What is your first thought of him when you hear his name? Do you want him to succeed in the NFL or because he made a stupid choice he should not succeed at anything?
We as Christians are supposed to be Christ like. That’s what we do we should do. Christ forgave. PERIOD! He is the one true Judge knowing our motives when we do things. Yet He forgives. Jesus said “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35 NIV) Do you do more loving or more judging?
Watch this video if you can handle it. If your heart doesn’t break and you don’t feel motivated to do something then I’d check the status of your heart. I am praying that one day our culture will wake up to all the easily curable problems humans are facing all over this world and will step it up. I am thankful for Bono and his work and others who have great influence and are using it for something other than making money.
We have been sponsoring a child through compassion ever since I heard a girl’s testimony who a compassion child and the difference it made in her life. Please if you can afford $30 a month sign up below.
I’m going. How about you?
The first time I heard this song I twittered I couldn’t wait to hear churches doing this song! NewSpring is the first that I’ve heard do it. How about you? Any other churches out there you know of done it yet?
I just was driving home from Sam’s and I passed a guy walking on Hillman Highway.(about 3 miles from my house) He had his thumb out and since I didn’t have any kids or wife with me and he was a MALE (I would never pick up a female if I was alone) I decided to pick him up.
I asked him where he was headed and he said out on Old Saltworks Road. I asked him how far and he said about 3 miles, well I live about two miles out. So as we were driving I asked if he worked at shoney’s (since he was wearing a hat and shirt – I know, I know… “Here’s ur sign”) and he told me yes. I asked him if he always walked to work and he said yes.
Basically the summary goes like this… He’s worked there for over a month, he has to be at work at 9 and gets off at 2. It takes him 2 hours to walk to Shoney’s. He has been doing this for over a month.
So here’s the thing – sometimes my church gives away vehicles, and they always give out any help they can to others. I’m thinking that if we could raise $1,000 I could get this guy a scooter, that way he wouldn’t have to pay for insurance and gas would be really cheap. I will check with the church to see if they can assist at all.
So who’s in? Anyone? Seriously if 10 of you gave $100 that would be it. If 20 of you gave $50 that would be it. I’m using a website called ChipIn to help manage this. See widget below to donate and if you have any questions please contact me via the comments section below!
Here’s a chance for the Church to be the hands and feet of God.
