NFTW #008--Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?; Bearing each others burdens

Listen to it now!

This week we'll jump into the controversy surrounding Christians shopping at stores that celebrate the "Holidays" instead of Christmas. My question is this: is that the most important consideration for Christians this Christmas season?

Also, how does God reveal Himself in our lives through other believers?

Here are some links to the Christmas shopping dilemma:

The Christian Post article
. Here's how Chinese Christians celebrate.
The Naughty and Nice list.

Joel's great post on openness and vulnerability got me thinking about Galatians 6.

This I took a look at what's good and bad about the recent changes at Willow Creek Community Church. Also, Jesus wanted to make sure our lives are built on the right foundations...

Here's the video about what's going on at Willow Creek.

If you want to know more about the persecuted church, this is one place to look.

NFTW #006--Who should Christians vote for?; God wants all kinds of people in His family!

Listen to it now!

Episode 6 is here, and I can't help myself--I've got to comment on all the silliness surrounding the Mitt Romney campaign. I mean, I know he's a Mormon, but is that reason enough not to vote for him?

Also, it seems that Jesus ministered to all sorts of people when He was here. And, his 12 disciples came from very different backgrounds. What does that tell us about the heart of God?

Here's a link to the Romney article.
