What’s The Secret Of Connecting With Another Soul?

silver-doctor-ec-gregg-3by Sam Williamson

Twenty-five years ago a client asked me to meet with her president for an hour-long lunch. Her president was an industry innovator. But, she told me, the president was also almost wordlessly introverted. She proposed I come prepared with a stockpile of stories to fill the conversational void.

The night before my visit, I talked with my father. He suggested an alternate plan.

What’s in a name?

book-506481_640By Latasha Ransome

In today’s society, a name does not have much symbolism. Many expecting parents today will choose a name according to its sound and not according to its meaning. This is not say that there are not any eager parents who research their awaiting bundle of joy(s) name, it is just not the expected custom in our culture.

This was not the case in biblical times, in fact parents would often name their children based on how they perceived God. We can see this thought conveyed in Samuel 1:20, when the mother of Samuel Hannah named him….

I Will Not Hide From God

hiding-from-godBy Mark Luker

 Psalm 139:7  Whither shall I go from thy spirit?

or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

I can relate to how Adam and Eve must have felt after they disobeyed God.

Sometimes I feel like hiding too.

I’m going to share a secret with you now……

I’m a sinner. No, really!  :roll: 

I realize this revelation may affect how you think of me ~

but there it is.

Grace Based Libertarianism

brother-314113_640By Wendy Alsup

A few weeks ago, I read an article on child rearing by a somewhat reformed, conservative evangelical in which he distinguished gospel centered parenting techniques from what he called “grace based libertarianism.” It was a classic example of what my pastor calls being “suspicious of grace.” Here was an author who was learning the doctrines of grace, enamored by the concept of gospel centered living, yet still suspicious of the core value of the gospel – unmerited favor. Better known as GRACE.

If I resist the grace of God can I lose my salvation?

“For those who have never experienced God’s grace, and for those who have not yet discovered that their own righteousness is woefully inadequate, this book provides a practical guide for living a joyful Christian life, filled with God’s grace. Its pages are filled with God’s extravagant love for mankind as well as admonition for avoiding the trap of legalism. It clearly points out the distinction between law and grace and the role of each in our walk with the Lord….

The Edge Of The Coin!

13941397444_c40b08c34e_zBy Pastor Pat Badstibner

The one accuses of too much grace, the other of a focus on too much law (Though often tainted as a focus on our sinfulness.). One is weary that others will be told they have to do nothing to do, now that they are saved.

The other is worried that an unbalanced focus on our sin will lead to others wallowing in a feeling of unworthiness. So are they both right, or are they both wrong? Is one wrong and the other right? More importantly how does this play out in our daily life?

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
