Have you ever thought about taking children in need into your home, either adopting or fostering? If you never pursued it, what stopped you? Did you have some reservations? Today, this is a discussion from 2 foster dads, will try to debunk the common myths of foster care. Maybe you ask yourselves why would I do that? — Well, let’s ask what would happen if you didn’t…
Too often in the church ministries that focus on orphans, widows and various helps ministries are seen as side projects that we “will get to when we have time.” But, Scripture shows us that these should be ministries in the forefront! Orphans and widows are in the time of their life where they most need people around them to love them, care for their needs, and show the love of Christ through their actions; if we were in the same state in life, wouldn’t we want the same form others? Who cares for the state and agency case workers? Who ministers to the foster parents? What about the parents who got their children taken, or the children who age of the system? Who is caring for these forgotten individuals? — That’s where Jami Kaeb and the ministry The Forgotten Imitative comes in…
A quick podcast episode: For those who have known me longer, I, in my former years, have done some drama and theatre; I have had the privilege of performing this particular drama at various church camps, services for college age and adults, a number times. I was even approached by some national touring drama teams asking if I would teach them this and then use the material in their own services. That aside, written by Josh Harris, voiced by Josh Armstrong, and music accompaniment by the Irish Film Orchestra, “The Room” is a great drama / skit for ministry. We hope you enjoy it. We do not make any money off of this; we just hope it will be used for God’s glory in ministry.
We not only ask what it’s like to live day-to-day as a blended family, we ask how have their family, friends and church responded to their relationship — were they treated okay, or even accepted? We also asked how the kids have adapted to being in this new family — Do they fight or just flat out reject one another? Has there been any resentment in the last 2 years of their marriage? In this episode, we will hear some great thoughts and tips from Brooke and Court towards other blended families, as well as to others who truly want to reach out and minister to blended families in their church or community.
Fear, rejection, divorce, unwise decisions and pain — Life was a struggle for Brooke and Court. ” ‘It hasn’t worked your way God, I’m going to try it my own way,’ and I walked away from Christ for two years.” Struggling to make it work, they broke off their engagement — and then God stepped in. As the Lord moved in their life, they took the 40 days to get their hearts right — And then God asked them to do something crazy… Listen to this episode of PROJECT: Faith Journey to hear the amazing things that God has done in their lives. There is hope beyond life’s despair.
Today we have not only an important topic, but its not just me talking. Jen joined in on the conversation as we have on some very important diplomats from across the US and across the pond… Both my guests today are people who have their own podcasts, and enjoy talking, so this could be either dangerous or very good… In this episode, we open the discussion to talk about the recent attacks in Paris as it related to immigration, refugees and what the Church’s response should be. — Also, is everything in the Church good, or are there areas that could be improved upon? In relation to culture, has the church improved, stayed the same or gotten worse as culture has changed?
Is going to church necessary? Does being a “good person” mean we are “good enough” as believers? Does God care about the “small” things in life? Only pastors can be in charge and lead others, right? God wants me to be happy, doesn’t He? What are your thoughts?
In this episode for PROJECT: Faith Journey, we took a few minutes to sit down with author, entrepreneur & speaker, Jonathan Malm. We asked, “Are you allowing God to make in you something creative and good?” and “What is the church doing to make visitor feel ‘unwelcome’ — and how are you doing the same in your own life?”
This cheer squad is a team made of both special needs individuals and their non-disabled peers coming together in one team to cheer as one in their community. Inclusion and acceptance is lived out amongst these young girls, which should only further and help them as they help shape the way society treats everyone, disabilities or not, as equals.
The difference they are making in their community is inspiring.
