Living 2008 with Purpose and Passion

I wanted to give a warm “Happy New Year” greeting to all of you.

It is always exciting to start a new year. There is something special about starting a fresh or from the beginning. We will have 365 days this 2008 year to live everyday with purpose and passion.

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.

Pakistan's Cloudy Future

On December 28, democracy was dealt a severe blow when supposed religions fanatics cut short Benazir Bhutto's life. The former prime minister, and the first female head-of-state of an Islamic nation, Ms. Bhutto had come back from self-exile to participate in the upcoming Pakistan democratic presidential elections. Her death is the center of focus, with differing accounts of how exactly she died. But regardless of whether she was felled by a bullet or shrapnel or the lever of the car's sunroof, her death may possibly signal the end of democracy in Pakistan.

Tied intimately with humility, service is translating selflessness into action. In other words, it’s love in motion. You can think about other people and truly desire for another’s best, but if it isn’t translated into action, it is all for naught.

Looking Ahead to the Future

Growing up in suburban New Jersey, I would say that I had a very comfortable upbringing. I was able to experience several missions trips within the United States, had the opportunity to enroll in honors classes, and to cap it all off, I was accepted into the University of Michigan!

Joy to the World!!

Unfazed by a snowstorm cancellation, a group of eight carolers and a support group of two descended on the Alterra/ Clarebridge nursing home on Monday, December 17 to share Christmas cheer in the form of four-part harmony. Although mainly composed of Harvest members, and missing half its original number, the group was blessed to represent both Focus small groups and the University of Michigan ECMO lab.

Growing in Godly Manhood, Part 1

This past week, our church had the privilege of hosting Pastor Robert Barriger from Camino de Vida in Lima, Peru.

One evening, Pastor Robert gave a talk to the men in our church and really challenged us to be men who think of “them.” In other words, men of God are those who abide by 1 Corinthians 10:24: “Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.”

The TS Movement: The Journey Thus Far

A low income family living in Detroit struggling to find affordable housing. An underprivileged community without access to medical care or education. Recent college graduates working in a new environment battling the “quarterlife crisis” and loneliness. A national government struggling to gain its footing on the world scene. The AIDS crisis ravishing millions in Africa

What do all of the above have in common? The burden of Jesus Christ.
