This is one of two baskets at our office full of names of True Woman conference attendees that our team is praying for individually. There are currently over 7,700 women registered to attend October 9-11 in Indianapolis, and we’re hoping for at least eight to ten thousand! Perhaps you could be one of those remaining we’re praying for…
“There is something about setting aside a weekend, or even just an evening, as a body of women to corporately seek God and sit under His Word, asking Him to open our hearts to spiritual needs. It is different than your personal quiet time or even your Sunday morning service at your own church. There is a special dynamic that occurs when we, as women, get together, on our faces, with open hearts and honest discussion. It’s a dynamic that the Lord seems to bless as a doorway to newfound spiritual growth.” read more —>>
We know of the Christians over in the middle east who are experiencing much pain and persecution right now, but do you know about those in North Korea? Prof. Candi Finch of Southwest Baptist Theological Seminary has written an informative article on the modern-day holocaust that is happening in this communist Asian country.

If you’ve been ignorant all this time like I, go take a look! If not, why didn’t you tell me?
After a conversation with a friend about church music and its ability to either enhance or distract from worship, she forwarded to me this funny albeit informative video of worship leader Bob Kauflin talking on the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of a tune (specifically in a worship service setting). Pretty amusing, but also a reminder that the music should match the message.
“His company was the envy of peers for its superior service — the phrase “my pleasure” is almost inextricably associated with the chain — and for its long-running, iconic advertising campaign featuring spell-challenged bovines.”
I’m sure you know what restaurant this statement refers to even if you missed the news of the death of the company’s founder. This Atlanta-based paper offered a nice tribute to Mr. Truett Cathy after news of his passing last Monday. He was known as the creator of the chicken sandwich, but wanted to be remembered as a servant of the Creator.
