  • A Path & Call to Ministry

    By: Mark Behle Sep 24, 2013

    The call and path to ministry is probably as varied as there are footpaths and pony trails in the mountains of Lesotho. Probably like snowflakes, no two are exactly alike. And like magnified snowflakes, each one can seem to be incredibly intricate and amazing. Recently I heard the story of Rev. Nelson Khethang Posholi’s call and path to ministry and I thought you would appreciate hearing how God has brought him to where he is today.

  • Teach the Children What Makes for Peace

    By: Gary Luallin Sep 03, 2013

    The Apostle Paul tells us in Romans 14:19 to pursue what makes for peace. Peace has been on my mind a lot lately and it must have had a permanent location in Paul’s mind also. He calls our God, the “God of Peace” seven times in his epistles. In Ghana we have just recently had a victory for peace.

    Prayers for Philippines
    ΓÇ¿ΓÇ¿We often keep our associations with those of like-mind who are agreeable. Forgive us for holding ourselves apart from those with which we differ – this prolongs friction and discourages understanding. Guide us to relationships of harmony.  

    Heavenly One, please soften the hearts of those of us who hold power. Open our eyes to the struggle of those who are overlooked and neglected....Read more...

    Lectionary Selection: Luke 13: 10-17

    Prayers for Israel/Palestine:
    The Palestine/Israel peace talks resume, and all around the region there is both upheaval and yearning for order, reason, and eventual reconciliation. We pray for calm and good will to prevail, and for God’s spirit of counsel to guide leaders and those in authority onto the path toward peace.
