A Ministry Sews Seeds

Only God can inspire someone with an idea that results in an international ministry overnight. That's exactly what happened to Wendy Hagar. She heard a missionary speak about the needs of orphans in Russia, and she knew she must help them. Since then she has sent 72,000 gifts bags with missionaries to the needy in 70 countries. Read her story below titled Sewing Seeds.

Here's an encouraging story for those who attend churches that are in transition. When pastors leave, transitions can be difficult, but three churches that found unique ways to bridge the gap, report very positive experiences in their transitions from one leader to another (see Hitting the Mark and Scratching Where It Hurts!).

Another inspiring and challenging article to note this week is Formulas for Life. The apostle Paul lamented: "I fail to practice the good deeds I desire to do, but the evil deeds that I do not desire to do are what I am ever doing" (Romans 8:19). All of us have negative patterns in our lives, but what do we do about them? The author offers some suggestions.

The top news story of interest this week proclaims good news! Saskatchewan's highest court has reversed the ruling that some Bible verses could be classified as hate literature (Court Reverses Ruling Against Bible Verses). For more on this topic, see The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada's news release directly on the EFC's website.

Also in the news, more on the gospel of Judas. Are you still wondering what it's all about? Here's a summary: Putting the Gospel of Judas in Perspective.

And here's an interesting development! Canada's Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) has rejected an anti-ID research proposal on the grounds it is dogmatic and unscientific (Intelligent Design Opponent Blocked by Federal Council).

May this week's articles be a blessing. Have a great week!

Blessings,
