Oh for sure; you should just know that your reach-into a small family church in Southern California-is no small thing! We are entering our second year of formal leadership development process/pipeline and required reading for any year 1 leader is amplified leadership! Keep going!

(7) Having said that, yes, my prayers are in fact with those families affected by the why? How? Because God is near to the broken hearted (psalm 34) and there is power in prayer.

(6) DO NOT CREATE A FALSE EQUIVOCATION BETWEEN PRAYER AND INACTION. If you believe the way I believe about prayer, then there is actually no higher form of action but to appeal to the supernatural, untamed power of the most high God.

(4) AND yet James also says (4:2) ‘you have not because you ask not’ Prayer is also built on requests suggesting that there are things God is willing to do, but won’t do until we ask!

(3) Prayer is not merely asking for things but the means in which we relate to God and rely on His much greater power-yes even to legislate or mobilize or socially act.

(2) The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16). I appreciate definition of prayer as a thing God uses to form us into partners who may be trusted with his power. Power in the kingdom (of God) works through words.

Today, when mass consumerism and social conformity has stifled dissent and counter-cultural resistance, the Church (for all its inner contradictions and tensions) quietly and courageously follows Jesus in caring for the poor, the foreigner and the vulnerable. -Vinoth Ramachandra

Wow this kid can throw the pigskin. Assuming the organization has figured out how to babysit and mature a 23 year old this could be a very interesting year for the Browns. Absolutely electric. via
