Encouraging Words 11/4/09-Putting Politics Behind and Focusing on Jesus!

A lot of people reading this were upset at the results of elections held in various parts of the country. That's one of the biggest problems with relying on political solutions--they aren't decided by right and wrong or clear moral values--it's who has the best funded, most effective message and organization structure to get out the voters that support them. Sometimes that makes us happy, other times it makes us angry, and the results are seldom permanent.

That's why I'm so glad I know Jesus, because he NEVER, NEVER changes. He always wants to love us and he is driven by right and wrong with clear moral values. Those values, unlike what some right-wing churches teach, do NOT include hating or condemning LGBT people. Jesus' love extends to all people.

Beginning Thursday night, we will be involved in a worship event that promises to be like few others ever held. We're not hyping it to reach into your pockets and get some of your money--we simply want you to share in an outpouring of the Holy Spirit and be blessed by some of the most gifted, spirit-filled LGBT men and women of God on this continent!

Our church, Believers Covenant Fellowship, is holding a series of worship services and workshops under the banner "The Fire and the Glory." We have leaders from the northwest, southwest, midwest, southeast, and Canada joining our BCF ministry team, and you can join us from anywhere in the world via a live video stream on the Internet. Here is the link for the USTREAM video feed.
