“Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.”
Psalm 95:6-7

CONSIDER
“I belong and will ever belong to “The Great God Party.” I will have nought to do with “The Little God Party…” Christ wants not nibblers of the possible, but grabbers of the impossible.”
C. T. Studd (1860-1931), C. T. Studd

THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH: CHRISTIANITY AS A WORLDVIEW
by Chuck Colson
Many evangelicals define faith strictly in terms of personal salvation. Yet soul-winning is not an end in itself. We are not only saved from sin, we are also saved to something — to the task of cultivating God’s creation. Genesis teaches that on the first five days, God did the work of creating. But on the sixth day, He made human beings in His image to carry on His wor — to develop the raw materials of the world He had created.

This is called the “cultural commission,” just as binding as the “Great Commission.” It means our faith is intended to encompass every part of life, every sphere of work, every aspect of the world.

In short, our faith must be a complete worldview, the basic set of beliefs that function as a set of glasses helping us to see all of reality through God’s eyes. If God is creator and sovereign over everything, as we confess He is, then everything finds its identity and meaning in relationship to Him — not only our spiritual life but also our work, politics, science, education, the arts, etc….

ONLY 1 IN 3 CHURCHES SPIRITUALLY ‘VITAL,’ STUDY SAYS
A congregation’s health depends less on theology than methodology, according to a first look at an upcoming national study by Hartford Seminary’s Institute for Religion Research.

Faith Communities Today 2008, due out Oct. 15, paints an overall sobering picture of congregational life in America. Congregations in general are losing ground in attendance, financial health and overall vitality. At the same time, many are bucking the trend, reporting spiritual vitality and a sense of mission and purpose despite challenges like finances and conflict.

Beginning in the 1970s, conventional wisdom said that churches holding to a conservative theology and putting high demands on members grew numerically, while more liberal congregations became increasingly secular and irrelevant, and inevitably declined.

Adding a more recent measure of whether a church perceives itself to be “spiritually vital and alive,” however, the Hartford researchers found that vitality peaked at both the conservative and liberal extremes of the theological spectrum…. Read this in full at

BIGGEST US CHURCHES ‘CONTEMPORARY, EVANGELICAL’
Two new reports on the size and strength of American congregations present contrasting pictures of church life today. The October issue of Outreach magazine is all about growth. It lists the 100 largest U.S. churches, based on attendance statistics gathered by LifeWay Research, Nashville. Leading the list, as in 2008, is Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church, Houston; 43,500 attend weekend worship. Lakewood could almost swallow the second and third place megachurches in one gulp.

But the newest trend in church growth is exemplified by the No. 2 ranked church’s cross-country reach. Lifechurch.tv transmits pastor Craig Groeschel’s worship services from the church’s studio home in Edmond, Okla., to 13 locations, reaching 26,776 people in average weekend worship attendance….

SURVEYS REVEAL ‘WIDELY DIVERGENT’ VIEWS OF RELIGIOUS US ACTIVISTS
First-ever polls comparing conservative and progressive activists are revealing to what degree these groups diverge when it comes to issue priorities, issue positions, and beliefs about Scripture

While the majority of both groups say religion is important in their lives, for example, they have strikingly different beliefs about Scripture. Nearly half of conservatives (48%) believe Scripture to be the literal word of God, while only 3% of progressives shared the same view, according to the 2009 Religious Activist Surveys conducted by the Bliss Institute of Applied Politics at the University of Akron in partnership with Public Religion Research.

The surveys also show how religious activists part ways on issue priorities…. Read this in full at

‘PILOTS FOR CHRIST’ LIFT PATIENTS ON A WING AND A PRAYER
On one of his healthiest days since being diagnosed in June 2008 with Stage 4 neuroblastoma, 9-year-old Tyler Trembley raced joyfully across a playground, his mother looking on. After heavy bouts of chemotherapy and surgery to remove a tumor wrapped around his kidney — involving thousands of miles of air travel to specialty hospitals — the third-grader is getting better.

“I’m witness to how awe-inspiring this life is,” said his mother, Sherry Trembley, who praised the help of Pilots for Christ, an aviation ministry, and others including Angel Flight, which also aids those with medical needs by providing free flights for medical care. “Every day,” she said with gratitude, “my heart flutters.”

A single mom to Tyler and his twin sister, Hannah, Trembley admits she was overwhelmed last summer, and soon exhausted, trying to get Tyler to Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, Ala., and then to Sloane-Kettering Memorial Clinic in New York…. Read this in full at

THE RIGHT WAY TO PRAY?
The Brooklyn Tabernacle, a 3,500-seat evangelical prayer palace in downtown Brooklyn, was built in 1918 as one of the largest and grandest vaudeville houses in North America. It is still a hot ticket. Its youngish, racially diverse congregation packs the pews each week to praise God and bask in the sounds of a Grammy-winning 250-voice gospel choir. But the tabernacle is more than just a popular church. It is also a destination for evangelicals from all around the United States and beyond, laymen and ministers alike, who come as acolytes to study prayer…. Read this in full at

NEW STUDY REVEALS CONCERNS AND IMPACT OF SOCIAL MEDIA ON EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN COLLEGE STUDENTS
When they’re not sending text messages or tweets, today’s Christian college students are spending time on Facebook. A lot of it. One in every three says he’s spending 1-2 hours a day on the site; twelve percent report using it 2-4 hours each day and 2.8 percent report usage at 4-7 hours a day. That’s in addition to other forms of social media and electronic usage such as video games, blogs, e-mail and Internet browsing.

The data comes from a new and unprecedented study by two Gordon College faculty members, Bryan C. Auday, professor of psychology, and Sybil Coleman, professor of social work. Released at the 60th anniversary conference for the Religion Newswriters Association in Minneapolis, Sept. 10, 2009, the study — “Pulling Off the Mask: The Impact of Social Networking Activities on Evangelical Christian College Students . . . A Self-Reported Study” — is the only one of its kind to target and give voice specifically to evangelical Christian college students. It explores the specific trends, behaviors and attitudes Christian students perceive of themselves regarding social media usage…. Read this in full at

HUMAN FAMILY: 7 BILLION BY 2011
by Erich Bridges
The latest world population numbers and forecasts tell us what we already know: The human family lives more and more in the global South and East. The rest of us are becoming country cousins, scattered through the isolated hinterlands of the North and the West. That’s an absurd exaggeration, of course — but not as absurd as you might think. Most of humanity is in Asia and Africa. If “God so loved the world,” as Scripture says, it stands to reason that He would focus passionate attention on the places where most of “the world” lives. So should we.

The global population will reach 7 billion in 2011, only 12 years after topping 6 billion in 1999, according to the Population Reference Bureau (PRB). The Washington, DC-based agency released its annual World Population Data Sheet in August with accompanying analysis of global demographics by region, age, income, gender and other categories….

‘SEE YOU AT THE POLE’ SET FOR SEPT. 23
More than 3 million teenagers in 20 countries are expected to participate Sept. 23 in the 19th annual “See You At the Pole” school prayer rally.

This year’s event also marks the 10th anniversary of the massacre at Wedgwood Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, when a gunman sprayed bullets across a sanctuary where students were gathered for a rally celebrating that morning’s See You At the Pole rally, held that year on Sept. 15. Four teens attending the rally were among the seven people killed by the gunman.

See You At the Pole, which originated in early 1990 among a small group of teenagers in Burleson, Texas, “is a student-initiated, student organized, and student-led event” that calls on students to pray for their schools, friends teachers, government and nation, asking God to bring moral and spiritual awakening to their campuses and countries, according to a statement on the event website.

“See You At the Pole is not a demonstration, political rally, nor a stand for or against anything,” the statement said. “See You At the Pole is all about prayer. It’s about [students]coming together and laying aside all of the labels and groups for one day, to simply engage with God in prayer and connect with fellow Christians in unity around the flag pole.” ….

DEADLY VIRUS
by Michael Duduit
H1N1 is the new danger on the horizon. This particular flu virus has already taken a number of lives, and experts fear many more could be in danger. As a result, we’re being told — by everyone from President Obama to Sesame Street’s Elmo — that we should wash our hands frequently and sneeze into our sleeves. Such precautions can help avoid unnecessary spread of the virus.

There’s an even bigger danger our world faces, and it poses a far greater hazard than any flu — though it does seem to spread virally. It is called sin, and it will destroy everything we have and all that we are if not dealt with.

The problem is, washing your hands won’t help. In fact, there’s not enough hand sanitizer on the globe to deal with your sin. The only thing that will help is to sanitize your soul, and that takes a Doctor who is unlike any other. You and I need the Great Physician because He is the only one who can cleanse sin and bring permanent healing to our lives.

You have the privilege of sharing the good news about the cure. Isn’t it exciting to be in the health care business?

HYBELS REDIRECTS CHRISTIANS TO ‘THE FORGOTTEN WAY’
Addressing the concerns and needs of a 25,000-member congregation, Pastor Bill Hybels launched a sermon series September 13 challenging them to return to Jesus’ way, or what he called the “forgotten way.”

“We’re going to … ask ourselves the question ‘why did his way of living ever get substituted for something else along the way? What wisdom became so attractive and maybe so cheap that entire cultures abandoned Jesus’ way for alternate paths?'” Hybels told attendees at Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Ill.

“The Forgotten Way” series was born out of a desire to respond to the 20,000 prayer requests they received this past Easter. Many of them dealt with pace of life issues, human sexuality, conflict resolution, and money.

Hybels is hoping to take the teachings of Jesus from 2,000 years ago and focus them on the needs of the congregation today while also contrasting the teachings with the conventional wisdom of today’s culture…. Read this in full at

EARLY SYMBOL DEPICTING JUDAISM FOUND IN GALILEE
Israeli archaeologists have uncovered one of the earliest depictions of a menorah, the seven-branched candelabra that has come to symbolize Judaism, the Israel Antiquities Authority said.

The menorah was engraved in stone around 2,000 years ago and found in a synagogue recently discovered by the Kinneret.

Pottery, coins and tools found at the site indicate the synagogue dates to the period of the second Jewish temple in Jerusalem, where the actual menorah was kept, said archaeologist Dina Avshalom-Gorni of the Israel Antiquities Authority, according to The Associated Press (AP), cited in The Jerusalem Post newspaper.

The artist might have seen the menorah during a pilgrimage and then recreated it in the synagogue, she suggested.

A small number of depictions of the menorah have surfaced from the same period, she said, but this one was unique because it was inside a synagogue and far from Jerusalem, illustrating the link between Jews around Jerusalem and in the Galilee to the north…. Read this in full at

NEW YORKER TRADES LUSH LIFE FOR WATER WELLS
“The world would be better if more people lived like they were made to live.” For Scott Harrison, that meant leaving the lavish life in the Big Apple and committing his life to the 1.1 billion people who don’t have access to clean water.

After ditching his Christian faith at 18 years of age, Harrison “had been working at selfishness” for ten years, selling $350 bottles of vodka, promoting nightclubs and fashion events, and hanging out with beautiful people. “I sold escapism and excess for a living,” Harrison told The Christian Post. He should have been happy, he said, but he was instead confronted with how arrogant and selfish he had become.

Realizing he was spiritually bankrupt, Harrison began reading The Pursuit of God, by A.W. Tozer, and praying. As he put it, he was “drinking heavily and partying at night, but praying by day.” It wasn’t until six months later that he decided to leave New York and dedicate a year of his life in service to God and the poor. He volunteered to serve as a photojournalist with Mercy Ships, a global charity that operates hospital ships in developing nations…. Read this in full at

CMA PHYSICIANS: ABORTION MANDATES ARE ‘LETHAL INJECTIONS TO HEALTHCARE REFORM’
As coordinator of the Freedom2Care (www.Freedom2Care.org) coalition of over 50 organizations, the Christian Medical Association (CMA, http://www.cmda.org) sent a letter to President Obama indicating that over 10,000 individuals have signed a Freedom2Care petition urging the President and Congress to protect conscience rights and stop abortion mandates.

The letter to the President notes that “the problem of discrimination in health care and protecting conscience rights through both law and regulation are key to protecting patients’ access to health care now and in the future.”

CMA CEO Dr. David Stevens said, “Our polling demonstrates that the American people by two-to-one margins support conscience-protecting laws and the conscience-protecting regulation that President Obama plans to get rid of. Our national survey of nearly 3,000 faith-based healthcare professionals reveals that conscience protections are vital to continuing the faith-based medical care that millions of patients depend upon.” ….

PATIENCE
James A. Garfield, prior to serving as President of the United States, was president of Hiram College in Ohio. One day a father asked Garfield if there were a short-cut whereby his son could get through college in less than the usual four years. He wanted his son to get on with making money.

The college president gave this reply: “Of course there is a way; it all depends on what you want your boy to do. When God wants to grow an oak tree, he takes 100 years. When he wants to make a squash, he only takes two months.”

LEADERSHIP TIPS (BUSINESS, FAMILY, LIFE)
HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?
16 ways you can know a leader has lost his mind:
#1 – He refuses to admit his mistakes.
#2 – He begins to blame the problems on people or circumstances rather than actually seeking out what the problem might be.
#3 – He refuses to listen to the team assembled around him.
#4 – He fights every idea that isn’t his own, thinking his originality is what must keep the church afloat.
#5 – He refuses to face reality.
#6 – He is unwilling to make the necessary changes because it would be highly unpopular.
#7 – He tries to listen to what everyone has to say about every situation.
#8 – He begins to believe that God’s favor on his life is because of how good he is rather than because of how good God is! …. Read this in full at

CHURCH ATTENDANCE DECLINING — BUT NOT FOR THOSE WITH MORE DYNAMIC APPROACHES
A recent study shows both widespread decline among American churches and instances of astonishing growth and vitality. Many tradition-bound churches are struggling to attract new members and pay their bills, while a smaller group of churches has discovered prosperity by embracing change and attracting younger members.

“The old way of doing things doesn’t work for many groups,” said David A. Roozen, professor of religion and society at Hartford Seminary in Connecticut, which conducted the survey.

The survey found that less than 20% of the churches said they were in good financial health in 2008 — down from 31% in 2000. Just 48% of the churches reported even modest growth in 2008, compared to 58% in 2005…. Read this in full at

ATHEISTS GROUPS DOUBLE IN SIZE IN TWO YEARS
The number of atheist or agnostic student groups on U.S. campuses has more than doubled in the past two years — from 80 to 162 — according to the Secular Student Alliance (SSA), the national organization for the secular student movement.

PZ Myers, an outspoken atheist and associate professor of biology at the University of Minnesota, Morris, suggested the growth could be related to authors saying that it is okay to be “godless.”

Myers, who last year angered Catholics when he publicly tried to desecrate consecrated Communion wafers, writes a blog and often speaks at SSA affiliate group meetings, where he urges students to go public about their unbelief and foster a positive image…. Read this in full at

LIFE’S REALITY
“The coin of health has illness on the other side. The currency of joy has sorrow on the reverse. Turn the coin of serenity and there is the stamp of worry. You always have to take what is underneath and reckon with that too. Happiness rests on sorrow, life upon death, calm upon turmoil. Each day has its night.”

FILLING UP THE AFFLICTIONS OF CHRIST (book excerpt)
by John Piper
Stephen Vaughan was an English merchant commissioned by Thomas Cromwell, the king’s adviser, to find William Tyndale and inform him that King Henry VIII desired him to come back to England out of hiding on the continent. In a letter to Cromwell from Vaughan dated June 19, 1531, Vaughan wrote about Tyndale (1494-1536) these simple words: “I find him always singing one note.” That one note was this: Will the King of England give his official endorsement to a vernacular Bible for all his English subjects? If not, Tyndale would not come. If so, Tyndale would give himself up to the king and never write another book. This was the driving passion of his life — to see the Bible translated from the Greek and Hebrew into ordinary English available for every person in England to read.

Henry VIII was angry with Tyndale for believing and promoting Martin Luther’s Reformation teachings. In particular, he was angry because of Tyndale’s book Answer to Sir Thomas More. Thomas More (famous today for his book Utopia and as portrayed in the movie A Man for All Seasons) was the Lord Chancellor who helped Henry VIII write his repudiation of Luther called Defense of the Seven Sacraments. Thomas More was thoroughly Roman Catholic and radically anti-Reformation, anti-Luther, and anti-Tyndale. So Tyndale had come under excoriating criticism by Thomas More. In fact, More had a “near rabid hatred” for Tyndale and published three long responses to him totaling nearly three-quarters of a million words…. Read this in full at

FEAR
by David Jeremiah
In 1991, Michigan’s Timid Motorist Program assisted 830 drivers across the Mackinac Bridge that is five miles long and 200 feet high. The drivers were so scared of heights that they couldn’t drive their own cars. The same year, more than a thousand motorists received assistance at Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay Bridge — also 200 feet high and four miles long.

In spite of their destination being in plain sight and a history of the bridges being safe, the drivers were paralyzed by fear. The same thing happened to the nation of Israel when they were ready to enter the Promised Land. The land was in plain sight, and they had a history of God meeting their needs; but only three people in the entire nation were willing to exercise their faith and enter the land: Moses, Joshua, and Caleb. The rest said, ‘We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we’ (Numbers 13:31). That generation of Israelites never reached their destination. Instead, their fear paralyzed them in the wilderness where they died.

“If you can see your destination and have experienced God’s faithfulness in the past, don’t let fear destroy your freedom.”
(Turning Point Daily Devotional, 9-2-09)

GRAHAM’S DAUGHTER: ‘RELIGION IS AN IMPEDIMENT’
Anne Graham Lotz, the second of Billy and Ruth Graham’s five children, says it’s all right: as long as you have a personal relationship with Jesus, church doesn’t really matter. Neither does denomination. “Religion is an impediment to knowing God,” says Lotz, who is promoting a new book, The Magnificent Obsession. “Procedures, rituals, creeds: how in the world can they help you connect with God?….If you’re sprinkled when you’re baptized or dunked when you’re baptized, it doesn’t matter as far as your salvation goes.”

Given her maiden name, you would think that Lotz, an evangelist who travels around the world urging people to come to Jesus, would embody old-fashioned, conservative evangelism. Her father has always strongly advised Christians to attend church; the Billy Graham Evangelistic Asso-ciation website tells new Christians to make church a regular part of their lives: “Whatever it meant to you in the past, going to church can now become a rich and rewarding experience.” ….

RELIGION REPORTING IS LOSING ITS PROMINENCE IN AMERICAN NEWSPAPERS
There have been reductions in the number of reporters who write about religion full time at all of the nation’s biggest newspapers, and the religion news beat has disappeared from multiple midsize and smaller papers. The surviving newspaper religion sections are getting smaller.

According to Debra Mason, executive director of the Religion Newswriters Association, the religion beat is not being targeted, but all specialty beats at newspapers, including the environment, health, and education, are suffering as newspapers, with shrinking budgets, allocate an increasing fraction of their diminished newsroom staffs to general assignment jobs….

ON PRAYER
No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here, we fail everywhere.”
