Faith in thy faith, but only faith in Him;
And this He meant in saying, "Come to me."
In light or darkness seek to do His will,
And leave the work of faith to Jesus still.

Archbishop tells new Church Army evangelists to be ’all weather evangelists, who loiter with intent’
By Michael Ireland Chief Correspondent, ASSIST News Service
SHEFFIELD, UNITED KINGDOM (ANS) -- Presiding at the recent commissioning service of ten newly-commissioned Church Army evangelists and a 400-strong congregation in the United Kingdom, the Archbishop of York told them they have been sent out as evangelists because they have a passion for sharing the gospel.
At the July 12 service in a packed Sheffield Cathedral, Archbishop John Sentamu told the seven women and three men admitted to the Office of Evangelist they should "loiter with intent" to help people experience, explain and demonstrate what new life in Christ is all about.
In a thoughtful and wide ranging sermon given in a city that had been devastated by floods only a couple of weeks earlier, the Archbishop called upon the newly commissioned evangelists to be "all weather" evangelists not waiting for the sun to come out and shine as it very rarely does, but "getting out there in all weathers" to share the gospel through words and actions. He said the Christ Jesus they serve is alive and working in the world and cannot be constrained or trapped within the covers of any book. the rest

As long as you notice, and have to count the steps, you are not yet dancing but only learning to dance. A good shoe is a shoe you don't notice. Good reading becomes possible when you need not conciously think about eyes, or light, or print, or spelling. The perfect church service would be the one we were almost unaware of; our attention would have been on God.

Wii Fit lands
Ninty’s new game and balance board takes the hub to an even higher level of greatness.
We thought the Wii couldn’t get any better. But, we have to ‘fess up. We were wrong. Ninty’s latest awesome addition to the console is Wii Fit. And it’s set to give you way more of a work out than smashing virtual tennis balls in trusty old Sports.
The game comes bundled with a balance board, pretty much like the thing that your missus steps up and down when she’s down the gym. But this is way more than a plank covered in garish plastic. the rest

God led Jesus to a cross, not a crown, and yet that cross ultimately proved to be the gateway to freedom and forgiveness for every sinner in the world. God also asks us as Jesus' followers to carry a cross. Paradoxically, in carrying that cross, we find liberty and joy and fulfillment. ...Bill Hybels image

Humility is perfect quietness of heart. It is for me to have no trouble; never to be fretted or vexed or irritated or sore or disappointed. It is to expect nothing, to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me and when I am blamed or despised. It is to have a blessed home in the Lord where I can go in and shut the door and kneel to my Father in secret and be at peace as in a deep sea of calmness when all around is trouble. It is the fruit of the Lord Jesus Christ's redemptive work on Calvary's cross, manifested in those of His own who are definitely subject to the Holy Spirit. ...Andrew Murray image

O Lord, let Thyself be found with a good gift to everyone who needs it, that the happy may find courage to accept Thy good gifts, that the sorrowful may find courage to accept Thy perfect gifts. For to men there is a difference of joy and of sorrow, but for Thee, O Lord, there is no difference in these things; everything that comes from Thee is a good and perfect gift. ...
