CHALLENGE OF THE LENTEN SEASON
constitutes both a challenge and an embarrassment to
Protestantism. Each year as the season approaches it brings with
it the temptation to equivocate. We do not know where we stand
because our feet seem to be stuck in both camps.
one side, our conscience serves to remind us that (if we are the
practicing Christians we claim to be) we had better "do
something" about observing the most sacred season in the
Christian calendar. We are reminded further of what we know all
too well, namely, that we have been over-indulgent, and that it
would be an excellent idea to place ourselves under some kind of
spiritual and physical discipline. It would not hurt us to "give
up something for Lent." On the level of personal habits we
could stand a more rugged Christian discipleship.... Read this in
IS PREPARING A PLACE -- AND WAITING FOR YOU TO ARRIVE

I'd brought a magazine."

tortures of hell," declared science-fiction writer Isaac
Asimov, "I think the boredom of heaven would be even worse."
might have similar reservations, quiet yet troubling. Will
eternity meet expectations? Jesus gives an assuring response:
Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in
me. There is more than enough room in my Father's home. If this
were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a
place for you? (John 14:1-2, NLT)

Jesus has gone to "prepare a place." Heaven is tangible:

your orchard. In fact, your garden and fruit might look familiar
probably assume God will destroy this universe and relocate his
children. But when God created the heavens and earth, he applauded
his work (Genesis 1:31). God never denounced his earth, just man's
mistreatment of it. Besides, he's the God of reclamation, not
extermination. He restores, recovers, renews. Expect him to
reclaim every square inch of what's rightfully his (Matthew

BIOGRAPHY BY PAUL JOHNSON
by John Wilson
there are already far too many books on Churchill, but there is
always room for another good one, and you might just gobble up
Paul Johnson's biography, slim and wonderfully readable, in a
single sitting. Johnson himself has entered his 80s, and I think
that gives him an angle on Churchill's long life that he would
have lacked had he written this book 40 or even 20 years ago.
Among the lessons Johnson extracts is this: ‘Churchill
wasted an extraordinarily small amount of his time and emotional
energy on the mean-nesses of life: recrimination, shifting the
blame onto others..., harboring grudges, waging vendettas.’”
MISSISSIPPIANS MOST LIKELY TO ATTEND CHURCH FREQUENTLY
are more likely to attend a religious service on a weekly or
almost weekly basis than the people of any other state, according
to the second annual Gallup poll on religious service attendance.
people of Mississippi were also found in 2008 to be the most
frequent servicegoers, but last year were even more likely to
attend service weekly with 63% saying they "attend church,
synagogue, or mosque” at least once a week or almost every
week. In 2008, 60% said the same.
attendance levels are widely dispersed across the states, with the
highest levels generally occurring in the South and the Midwest,
and the lowest in the Northeast and the West," the Gallup
organization noted in announcing the latest figures, which were
based on more than 350,000 interviews conducted among national
adults, aged 18 and older, across all 50 states and the District
of Columbia in 2009.... Read this in full at
ON RELIGION FINDS YOUNG ADULTS LESS AFFILIATED BUT NOT LESS
faith losing its grip on the young? That would be one way to read
a new report by the respected Pew Forum on Religion and Public
Life, which found that more than one-quarter of Americans age 18
to 29 have no religious preference or affiliation, and fewer than
one in five attend services regularly. That makes them easily the
least religious generation among Americans alive today, perhaps
the least religious ever.
does it? The Pew study found that, although young adults -- the
so-called Millennial generation born after 1981 -- are shunning
traditional religious denominations and services in unprecedented
numbers, their faith in God and the power of prayer appears nearly
as strong as that of young people in earlier generations.... Read

YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES? MOST AMERICANS DO
survey from the Pew Forum on Religion showed that a vast majority
of Americans, nearly 80%, believe in miracles. The results are
from a wider study, "Religion Among the Millennials."
Greg Smith from the Pew Forum on Religion talks about the
widespread belief in miracles.
extremely outstanding or unusual event, thing or accomplishment -
that's Merriam Webster's definition of the word, miracle. But it
goes on: An event manifesting divine intervention, a wonderful
occurrence. And from that alone, you might conclude that our
understanding of miracles is murky at best. A new study from Pew
complicates things a bit further.
study shows that young adults, the so-called millennial
generation, don't attend church services regularly, are less
inclined to express religious preference or affiliation than their
elders, but profess widespread belief in the afterlife, in heaven
and hell and in miracles. Nearly 80% of all Americans, in fact,
say they believe in miracles.... Read and hear this in full at
TO DO WITH EMPTY CHURCH BUILDINGS
the closings of Catholic churches across the Northeast and
Midwest, local officials -- vexed by visions of vacant buildings
in struggling neighborhoods -- might want to take a look at what’s
happening in Buffalo, NY.
a weak real estate market, the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo has
found surprising success in selling its closed churches -- often

IN THE BIBLE DVD
Vischer here. I want to tell you about What’s in the Bible?
-- the first new DVD project I have conceived from scratch since
VeggieTales, and a project I can’t wait to share with the
world. The first 2 DVDs, In the Beginning and Let My People Go!,
will be available March 1, but I wanted to take the time to tell
you a little bit about why I am so excited about this series.
in the Bible? is, in a nutshell, an attempt to address declining
biblical literacy in the North American church. VeggieTales was an
amazingly effective way to teach individual Bible stories, but not
abstract concepts like sin, redemption, or God’s grace. Yet
these concepts are the core of a meaningful faith. Christian
colleges report that incoming freshmen -- even those from
Christian homes -- know less about the Bible each year. And partly
as a result of a lack of meaningful knowledge about their faith,
65% of Christian kids are walking away from the church as soon as
they leave high school.
What's in the Bible? is a new 13-part series that will walk kids
all the way through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Call it
“Christianity 101” -- a crash course in our faith,
presented with the same wit and whimsy as VeggieTales.
FOR THE HUSBAND OF A WOMAN WHO LEFT
If you haven't been walking with the Lord, start; if you are
walking with Him, walk closer.
Pray for her. She may not stay, but you will be a stronger man
when it all ends.

normal as possible by keeping/maintaining your routines.... Read

NATIONAL MULTIMEDIA PROGRAM TO HELP PARENTS PROTECT KIDS FROM
Is Enough (EIE), a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping
children safe online, announces the national launch of Internet
Safety 101, a comprehensive program for parents, educators, and
other caring adults who need knowledge and resources to protect
kids from dangers on all Internet-enabled devices.
Safety 101 is the only multimedia program on the market
specifically designed to educate, equip and empower parents to
gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to protect children from
the very real dangers that exist in a Web 2.0 world," said
Donna Rice Hughes, president and chairman of EIE. "While the
Internet provides many extraordinary opportunities for children,
the sad reality is no child is immune to online threats, which is
why parents must be the first line of defense," Rice Hughes
kids are exposed to the online dangers of pornography, sexual
predators, cyber bullies, and other Internet threats. While
children can engage in risky behavior via computers, cell phones,
gaming systems, and social networks, many adults are uninformed,
overwhelmed and ill-equipped to deal with online threats. Internet
Safety 101 provides a means for adults to educate, equip and
empower themselves to ensure that children under their care have a
safe and rewarding online experience.

Digital Praise, which makes Christian video games, plans to merge

God rarely needs more than that to get the ball rolling.”
Jesus changed the whole world with twelve (only eleven of whom
panned out) disciples. Malcolm Gladwell’s, The Tipping Point

IN MEDIA SAYS PARENTS SHOULDN’T BE THE ONLY LINE OF DEFENSE
IN PROTECTING CHILDREN FROM ONLINE P*RN
President Robert Peters has advised the FCC that while parents are
the "first line of defense" in protecting children from
harmful content online and elsewhere, a reliance on parents is
"not the whole answer." This was in response to an FCC
"Notice of Inquiry" [MB Docket No. 09-194)] seeking
comment on "how to empower parents to help their children
take advantage of the opportunities offered by evolving
technologies while at the same time protecting children from the
risks inherent in use of these technologies."
Peters points out that, "For a variety of reasons, many
parents cannot or will not use available technology." Some
parents, he writes, "do not read or speak English fluently."
Others lack "literacy skills." Many are "chronically
ill or disabled." "A technology gap also separates most
parents...from their children...Parental controls can be difficult
to use...Furthermore, as children get older many will find a way
to circumvent the technology and no technology is perfect...And
while it may come as a surprise to some federal court judges, many
parents are not part of the solution; they are part of the
problem...And it isn't just dads...it's moms too." .... Read
