Sing to Memorize the Word

My friend Mark Altrogge has a series of CD's out called Hide the Word. There are about 20 songs on each CD and each song is a verse from the Bible, repeated three times, including the verse reference (after a while, you don't even think twice about singing out loud "first Peter three-eighteen!"). You can listen to song samples and order these great recordings from Mark's website. I highly recommend them! It is amazing to watch my 3 year old son walk around the house perfectly reciting the Word of God! And they have helped my pea-brain memory to learn the Scriptures more quickly.

Homosexuality and Evolution Don't Dance

I read this excellent sentence in Chuck Colson's Breakpoint this past Thursday...
Of course—any gene that led men to prefer men as sexual partners would have led to the extinction of its carriers. In Darwinist terms, [genetically caused] homosexuality is 'evolutionarily maladaptive.'"

Sorry for the GAP

I apologize for those of you that check this thing fairly often... one month of no posts is not a good way to keep up interest! I will try to do better in the future.
One thing you may want to look at it are a few new letters from Walter on our church webpage. You can find them at this link.

Alex Montoya at Pastor's Conference

The SGF Canada hosted their annual Pastor's Conference not long ago with Pastor Alex Montoya as the keynote speaker. One of the most profound things he said (and there were a lot of them) was this simple statement: "If your church is not planting churches you are not fulfilling the Great Commission."
Think about it, and I think you will agree. We are going to get the messages from this conference up on our website soon for free download here.
