Campus America: A Year of Prayer

Rachel Wegner, 27th December, 2010

As difficult as it is to summarize an entire Year of Prayer (and the five years leading up to it, for that matter), we wanted to take a look back at the incredible response to the simple call to prayer put forth by Campus America. Based on our Prayer Calendar alone, we logged 26,000+ hours of prayer, which included 174 campuses.

Living in the Light of Christmas

Scot Bower, 27th December, 2010

The warmth of Christmas day is still with me, as is that seasonal bloated feeling that comes with eating too much turkey. The Christmas feast stays a while and, in the UK at least, the 26th December is a second public holiday we call Boxing Day.

Thanking God this Christmas

Carla Harding, 20th December, 2010

Christmas Day approaches and Jesus followers around the world are preparing to celebrate the day God “became flesh and blood and moved into the neighbourhood” (John1:14).  As I finish wrapping gifts and buy the last ingredients for our festive feast, my attention turns to the preparation of my heart.

An Advent Parable

Pete Greig, 10th December, 2010

Before the snows, my kids went a little mad, quivering with levels of primal anticipation beyond anything their mini bodies could contain. They prayed for snow at bedtime, they expected snow in the morning.

Making the most of advent

Scot Bower, 29th November, 2010

Attention shoppers," sang the stores speaker system cutting through the cheesy Christmas tune, “we have a lost season, he could have been left behind some time ago and answers to the name Advent. Would the carers of Advent please leave their shopping and make their way to the nearest exit where the season is desperate to be found?” The announcement went unheard amidst the Christmas crush, both by bargain hunters who clawed items from the shelves, their painted smiles lit by the fake trees and flickering fairylights, and the seasonal employees whose senses had been dulled by the stress of over demanding customers and a Christmas soundtrack featuring traditional 70’s rock on heavy rotation.

Space to Pray in Every Working Day

The Phantom Intercessor, 22nd November, 2010

We strode down the corridor, tripping over trailing flightbags and scanning the signs, ‘Ausgang’ and ‘Gepack’. On the first door inside the terminal, a sign caught my eye, ‘Gebetsraum fur Juden’, a star of David, a sign for synagogue timings.

The What and The Way

Pete Greig, 17th November, 2010

Welcome to one of the most wonderful and challenging times of year; a season of active waiting and preparation before Christmas which begins with ‘Stir Up Sunday’ this Sunday, 21st, (I’ll explain the name in a bit), followed by Thanksgiving in America on Thursday 25th and Advent Sunday throughout the Western church on the 28th November. The season of Advent is an invitation, an opportunity for spiritual intentionality, reflection and prayer in which you may like to renew disciplines such as daily bible study, physical exercise, journaling, reading a Christian book, running a season of 24-7 prayer, or arranging a ‘how am I doing?’ chat with a friend.

Reality Bites

Carla Harding, 12th November, 2010

“Where should I look?” Is the uncertain question I direct at the young man behind the complicated recording equipment.  (There’s nothing that provokes uncomfortable self-analysis like a video camera.

The Shocking Truth Behind Child Sex Trafficking

Amanda Siebold, 27th October, 2010

International relief organisations estimate there are 300,000 – 400,000 children working as prostitutes in the United States and the average age of someone entering into prostitution in the US is just 12 years old. I’d like to take a moment to share my heart with you about a particular trafficking issue that has been a growing passion of mine over the last three years.

Tragedy in Baghdad

Canon Andrew White, 25th October, 2010

The pain of the past week is just too severe to mention in full.  There are only some things I can share, but please know there are certain things that are too painful, difficult and delicate for me to write about here.
