VIDEO - "Jesus didn't stay dead!" - Cpt. Pete Brookshaw

No comments:

What a privelege to preach it up over the Easter weekend at an amazing church (Salvos 3064 - Craigieburn, VIC).

Be blessed as you listen to this Spirit-inspired message. 'Jesus didn't stay dead!' A message we all need to hear about the power and significance of what Easter Sunday is about.

God bless you!

~ Pete.

Win Souls - Is this quote controversial?

No comments:

“I would rather win souls than be the greatest king or emperor on earth; I would rather win souls than be the greatest general that ever commanded an army; I would rather win souls than be the greatest poet, or novelist, or literary man who ever walked the earth. My one ambition in life is to win as many as possible.”
R. A. Torrey

A Speech that Captured the World - Can you guess what speech?

No comments:

It's August 28th, 1963, and Martin Luther King Jnr, readies himself to stand on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington and give a speech that changed the U.S.A. Martin Luther King Jnr, a Baptist Pastor, fully committed to his faith in Christ, had an opportunity to make history. Despite the fact that, ultimately, his stance for racial freedom brought him to his death, he stood and fought for a change in the culture of his day.

Though, why was his 'I have a Dream' speech so powerful? You will see, if you watch closely from around the eleventh minute of his passionate and eloquently crafted speech, that he begins to put down the script, and speak further to his passion for racial equality... Public speaking from the heart. Powerful and Godly.

I wonder who the Martin Luther King's are today?

Top 10 Missional Books You Should Read

No comments:

I have been following Brad Bisco for a little while now; a thinker and missiologist, who is passionate about the missional church. If you were only to read a handful of books on the missional church, then this list offered by Bisco would be where you start.

Let me give you a taste of some of the contents of these books on the missional church. Alan Hirsch writes in The Forgotten Ways (one of the top 10 missional books listed):
If we're going to impact our world in the name of Jesus, it will be because people like you and me took action in the power of the Spirit. Ever since the mission and ministry of Jesus, God has never stopped calling for a movement of "Little Jesuses" to follow him into the world and unleash the remarkable redemptive genius that lies in the very message we carry. Given the situation of the Church in the West, much will now depend on whether we are willing to break out of a stifling herd instinct and find God again in the context of the advancing kingdom of God.
Another Alan Hirsch quote about the missional church:
When the church is in mission, it is the true church. The church itself is not only a product of that mission but is obligated and destined to extend it by whatever means possible. The mission of God flows directly through every believer and every community of faith that adheres to Jesus. To obstruct this is to block God's purposes in and through his people.

How the Gay Marriage Debate Caused a C.E.O. to Lose His Job

No comments:

What an intriguing article, written by James Surowiecki of The New Yorker recently. Brendan Eich, C.E.O. of Mozilla (the creators of software such as Mozilla Firefox), donated $1,000 back in 2008 supporting a political party's push to ban same-sex marriages. This has led him into hot water and after two weeks at the helm, has stood down from Mozilla.

You can read the article here:
How Mozilla Lost its C.E.O.

What are your thoughts? Is the public pressure to stand down justified?

Is not someone entitled to a view, even if someone disagrees with it?
