Watching kids act like kids makes smiles:

Hearing laughter and seeing great volunteers makes joy:

Seeing life change happen when one life positively infects another makes disciples:

*Thank you to EVERY CampusSERVE volunteer throughout the years… you’re foundations let successful ministry still happen today.

Kevin an OK Homeless Guy

Is Kevin one-in-a-million (which was my first impression) or is he what we may find if we had relationships with the homeless in Lynchburg?

Anyone know what it’s like to establish a relationship with a homeless woman/man and to see how God uses it?  If you have a relationship with a homeless person does that compel you to only think about how you can physically provide for that person?


Faith in Public Life

How does this video challenge your thinking of ideological language and faith-based communication?

FPL claims to be an organization that claims to be, “… a strategy center advancing faith in the public square as a positive and unifying force for justice, compassion and the common good” (

How is the balance between “unifying rhetoric” in faith life and “unifying actions” by followers of Jesus in our city? Are we doing well?  Where should we be doing better?

What do you think about the challenge of the interviewer about a better definition of “faith”? Is unifying rhetoric still essential even if the Evangelical Christian Right is not the one controlling the conversation?
