ROCK PIONEER DANA KEY DIES AT 56
rock pioneer Dana Key died from a ruptured blood clot June 6 at
the age of 56. The co-founder of rock band DeGarmo and Key was
serving as senior pastor of The Love of Christ (TLC) Church in
Cordova, Tenn., at the time of his death.
as one of the early innovators of the Christian rock genre, Key
and longtime friend Eddie DeGarmo founded DeGarmo and Key over 30
years ago, having wanted to "communicate a clear, honest
Christian message through straight-ahead rock 'n' roll."
long after their first album, This Time Thru, hit stores in 1978,

ARE A FORCE FOR GOOD
18th and 19th centuries were not all bad for those who received
missionaries. Missionaries were invariable people propelled by a
passion for people -– not just their mission. Christian
mission is quintessentially fuelled by the idea that God loves
everyone, offers life through Jesus Christ and that that life
carries with it the gift of spiritual and social wellbeing. And
usually missionaries believe this so much that for 2000 years they
have been prepared to leave comfort and family, risking disease
and death to offer others a better way to live. Sixteen hundred
years ago Christian bishops would send the parabolani into
plague-ridden communities without any expectations that they might
return from their mission.
have established healthcare, orphanages, education and built
infrastructure. Like Albert Schweitzer and William Carey they have
been educators, philosophers, scientists, anthropologists and
humanitarian workers. Like John Wesley, Count Zinzendorf, Olaudah
Equiano and John Smith of Demerara, they were at the forefront of
the abolitionist movement. Despite the outrageous episodes of
child abuse and the fanciful, demonising mythologies which Dan
Brown has spawned in our public consciousness, the Catholic church
has the longest unbroken track record for spreading the common
good. Long before Coca Cola or the "McDonaldisation" of
the world, missions were been a trans-cultural global movement for
good –- imperfect but also impactful.... Read this in full
BACK IN THE
BLACK: FOCUS ON THE FAMILY
by the recession, the departure of its founder, and a suddenly
smaller donor base, Focus on the Family suffered mightily in 2009
but appears to have finally turned the corner. The Colorado
Springs-based organization had a $355,000 surplus, according to
its Form 990, filed with the Internal Revenue Service in May.
That’s a far cry from the $1.1 million deficit reported in
the previous year. And in an even more striking turnaround, cash
and cash equivalents increased during the fiscal year from $3.6
million to $22.2 million.
990 covers the period from Oct. 1, 2008 to Sept 30, 2009, a time
during which the organization went through numerous, often
wrenching, changes. Among them: The organization’s iconic
founder, 73-year-old James Dobson, stepped down as CEO and chief
spokesman. He was replaced by 48-year-old Jim Daly.... Read this
June 20. The idea of Father's Day was conceived slightly more than
a century ago by Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Wash., while she listened
to a Mother's Day sermon in 1909. Dodd wanted a special day to
honor her father, William Smart, a widowed Civil War veteran who
was left to raise his six children on a farm. A day in June was
chosen for the first Father's Day celebration – 100 years
ago, June 19, 1910, proclaimed by Spokane's mayor because it was
the month of Smart's birth. The first presidential proclamation
honoring fathers was issued in 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson
designated the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. Father’s
Day has been celebrated annually since 1972 when President Richard
Nixon signed the public law that made it

5 SIMPLE WAYS
TO LET YOUR KIDS KNOW YOU LOVE 'EM
busy dads are always looking for new ways to grow closer to our
kids. Sometimes we think we need tons of time to make this
connection -- like regular "date nights" with each child
or weekend camping trips with just Dad and the kids. Dates and
camping trips are great, but it's actually the little things --
done over time and with a loving heart -- that do the trick for
kids. Try some of these and watch the connections happen:
a "Mail Man"
your child's next birthday, cover a shoebox with wrapping paper
and a label that says, "Mail from Dad." Each year on
your child's birthday, write a letter that's not to be read until
you give your child the box -- on his 18th birthday, the day he
goes to college, his wedding day, whatever feels right for you.
Use these letters to express your love, to praise his strengths
and gifts, to offer specific prayers, and to share your hopes for
the person he'll be one day.... Read this in full

pacifists, non-militants, conscientious objectors in this

boldness is required to take part in the comradeship of the Cross.

Islam, said he plans to appeal the court's decision. He said he

dealt with so much in life that, to be honest with you, I don't
even know what to say or how to describe it," said Wario, 35.

BUILDING GUIDELINES FOR MEN
Master interchangeability – The secret of the best dressed
men is that they wear clothing that neither draws attention nor
strikes observers as flamboyant; they are simply well put
together. The good news is this can be achieved with very few sets
of clothes, and if selected carefully a man with only two suits,
four dress shirts, four ties, and two pairs of shoes has 64
different combinations at his disposal (2×4x4×2=64 ).
The key here is making sure your clothing is interchangeable; a
core of classic colored suits and dress shirts complimented with
time tested tie patterns will yield a higher return on investment
than any trendy garment that only matches one other item in your
wardrobe.... Read this in full

Road. About 160 people sat elbow to elbow on folding chairs to
hear Haggard sermonize about sin, love and forgiveness.

homeless, the formerly homeless and the soon-to-be homeless. But
this encounter was not part of her job — not her paying job,
anyway. Fulford spends 30 to 40 hours a week volunteering as the
leader of a ministry for homeless people for the Rock Church, a
fundamentalist megachurch in Point Loma that is making its mark as
a powerhouse of community service as well as evangelism.
Rock says it contributed 615,000 hours of service to the community
last year, including 166,000 hours for the benefit of local
government in San Diego. The Rock estimates the value of its
"mayor's hours" — projects it says were identified
by San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders — at $2.6 million.
2010, it has set a goal of 700,000 hours, 200,000 of them for the

San Diego Chargers defensive back who founded the Rock 10 years

global groups of churches based in 108 countries and representing
80 million people should be willing to come together in a higher

General Secretary of the Reformed Ecumenical Council (REC).
June 18, the World Alliance of Reformed Churches (WARC) will merge

guests, visitors, and volunteers will gather on Calvin College
Campus for the Uniting General Council (UGC) which will mark the

UNEARTHS 3,500-YEAR-OLD PAGAN ARTIFACTS

items were found during an excavation ordered by the Israel
Antiquities Authority along the route of a new gas line in the
country's north. Excavating a rock hollow, archeologists found
more than 100 intact artifacts, including a vessel for burning
incense and the sculpted face of a woman that was part of a cup
used in a pagan religious ceremony.

HOW THE BIRDS
MIRED IN THE GULF OIL SPILL TEACH US TO PROPERLY GRIEVE
was a news-oblivious kindergartener when the Exxon Valdez oil
spill hit Alaska's coastline and its pristine wildlife in 1989. As
such, I was somewhat unprepared to stomach a recent NPR interview
with an Audubon naturalist working on the Louisiana coast. She
outlined the spill's effects on bird populations around the Gulf,
a major destination for waterfowl. As she described how oil stunts
gulls' and pelicans' ability to regulate body temperature and
breathe, bringing toxins into their bloodstream, turning usually
white eggs muddy brown, I quickly changed the station, knowing
more details would elicit only anger.
hearing her description was nothing like seeing the images on The
Boston Globe's Big Picture blog
And this time, I couldn't bring myself to turn away. The pictures,
of gulls and pelicans on Louisiana's East Grand Terre Island, have
come to embody what's being called the worst environmental
disaster in U.S. history. One gull is so drenched in sheets of oil
that it hardly resembles a bird, more a small dog, its eyes grayed
over from exhaustion and slow suffocation. Another gull floats
seemingly dead in oil, its feet and beak rigid in the air. A brown
pelican, Louisiana's state bird, thrashes and flails in the water,
its monstrous wings (which can span up to 8 feet) weighed down by
layers of oil, its distinctive pouched bill open as if gasping or
crying out. My initial shock turned, predictably, to anger. But
anger soon gave way to a rarer, more profound emotion: grief. When
I looked at these birds, collectively covered in more than 400,000
gallons of oil leaking each day, I bemoaned how one amazing facet
of creation was buried in—was made to carry—a seismic
mess bolstered by human greed and folly.... Read this in full
