CHRISTIAN RESPONSE TO IMMIGRATION REFORM?
Michael J. Gerson
December Congress began debate on the DREAM Act. This is a bill
that would give illegal immigrants who were brought to America as
children a path to citizenship—provided that they have
graduated from high school, have no record of serious crime and
attend college or enter the military.
support the DREAM Act for a number of reasons. The young people in
question are called illegal immigrants, but they have done nothing
illegal themselves. They are condemned to a shadow existence
entirely by the actions of their parents. The bill is narrowly
limited, welcoming exactly the kind of immigrants we want as
potential citizens: immigrants who are law abiding, focused on
education and willing to serve. Allowing them to develop their
skills would be good in the long run for our military, for our
economy and for our country.
however, raise serious, principled objections. They are concerned
about the cost of educating hundreds of thousands of immigrants.
Or they believe the bill, in parts, is poorly written. Or they
think that the DREAM Act should only be considered as a part of
broader immigration reform.... Read this in full at
EVANGELISTS DO LAUNDRY?
summer when I was part of a group of young people who went out
street-witnessing every day pamphleteering for the gospel and
trying to talk about Jesus with whomever would spend a few moments
in conversation with us ... [It] was easy at first to talk about
him to these searching souls. But when they found out we were
Christians, most people snapped shut and wouldn't listen to our
a few days of this, one afternoon five us headed to the Laundromat
on Telegraph Avenue a few blocks from the campus to wash some
clothes ... We were sitting in a circle on the floor, laughing and
singing songs together as we waited for our clothes to tumble dry.
One member of our group tacked on the bulletin board a poster for
our end-of-the-week evangelistic meeting. Nearby was a fellow also
doing his wash who was eavesdropping on our group ... We didn't
know it at the time, but he was involved in some pretty
destructive behavior. We never spoke to him. After all, we weren't
there to witness, but to do laundry. But after we left, he took
the poster off the bulletin board, wondering who we were and what
we were all about. Something about us intrigued him.
Friday he came to our meeting and met Jesus. He was radically
transformed - forgiven, cleansed, and set on a new path of life.
As far as I know, he was the only lasting fruit from that entire
week of ministry. And it didn't happen because we "witnessed"
to him, but because he saw the community of faith alive in that
Laundromat. He joined our group and went on to be involved in
ministry in the Bay Area...
is how evangelism works: loving relationships are magnetic. God
loves us. We love him and each other - and that is the most
powerful force on earth.

TRADITION, SEWAGE MEET IN THE RIVER JORDAN
20,000 pilgrims walked past minefields Jan. 18 to reach the
traditional site of Jesus’s baptism on the Jordan River.
They came to wash their faces with the muddy brown water, immerse
themselves and even drink the water to mark the date that Jesus
began his holy ministry. The Greek Orthodox Patriarch in
Jerusalem, Theophilos III, led a ceremony in which he threw plants
into the water and released doves, which symbolize the Holy
al-Yahud is in the Israeli-controlled West Bank and dozens of
Israeli flags swayed in the breeze. Just across the river,
hundreds of pilgrims congregated on the Jordanian baptism site,
visited annually by hundreds of thousands of pilgrims. As the
Patriarch approached, bells tolled and they began singing hymns in
Greek, which were echoed by the pilgrims on the Israeli side. The
pilgrims came from Orthodox churches around the world, especially
Greece, Russia and Ethiopia.
Jordan River is the official border between Israel and Jordan, two
countries that were at war for decades. The site is surrounded by
fields that have been mined. Barbed wire and bright yellow signs

400: CELEBRATING THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF THE KING JAMES VERSION OF
King James Version of the Bible marks its 400th year of
publication in 2011, which will provide diverse opportunities to
celebrate the KJV, including several marathon reading sessions, a
History Channel documentary, and a flipbook of an entire 1611
printing of the KJV. Reaction to the quadricentennial of the KJV
varies widely. Some see the event as worthy of celebration while
others stifle a yawn. The diversity of reaction reveals the
disparity in perception of the grand old English translation.
current perception of the KJV is similar to that of an elderly
grandfather. Some hold the grandfather in high esteem, revering
the wisdom of experience. Others see the grandfather as out of
touch and unapproachable, distant and disconnected. While the
Bible, and certainly a translation of the Bible, never should be
worshipped, the KJV certainly deserves appropriate respect for its
impact on language, literature, and faith.... Read this in full at

GRAHAM: THE SPIRIT OF ANTI-CHRIST IS EVERYWHERE
Graham told students at John Brown University on Jan. 18 to remain
committed in their faith in Jesus Christ and preach the gospel in
spite of the persecution they may face. Speaking during a special
chapel service, the evangelical preacher asked the students of the
private Christian university in Siloam Springs, Ark., to "set
the sail for the course that God has in front of you," while
overcoming the pitfalls, temptations and challenges in their path.

APPEARS BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT
do you think about Satan?" That's not a typical question at
the Supreme Court, but those words were indeed uttered by Justice
Scalia on January 10. The question drew a near belly laugh from
the packed gallery, leaving one to wonder whether the Devil has
become nothing more than a joke in modern America.
showed up when the justices, as they often do, sought to push the
bounds of each side's arguments with extreme hypothetical
questions. Would unfounded rumors of satanic connections (such as
have dogged Procter & Gamble for years) be material enough to
warrant a company’s formal disclosure under the Court's test
addressing information that a "reasonable shareholder"
would need to know? It's not an entirely crazy question: such
strange allegations dogged Procter & Gamble for decades and
became the subject of a high-profile lawsuit in which the company
sued some Amway distributors for spreading the rumors. A jury
eventually awarded Procter & Gamble $19.25 million in 2007.
have no reason to doubt the sincere religious faith of any of the
justices, but while some remained silent none in any way sought to
suggest that, rather than being a laughing matter, perhaps the
hypothetical questions were straying into a truly dangerous
domain. I laughed too, but quickly began to feel quite
uncomfortable with the scene. While I worry about those who see
the Devil everywhere, I worry even more about a culture that fails

Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this
foreigner?’ Then he said to him, ‘Rise and go; your
faith has made you well.’ (Luke 17:17-19 NIV)
I trace back. Hadn't Jesus already completely healed him? Exactly
like the other nine who were cured who hadn't bothered to return
and thank Him. So what does Jesus mean, ‘Your faith has made
you well’? Had I underinterpreted this passage, missed some
hidden mystery? I slow down and dig. I read Jesus’ words in
Young’s Literal Translation, ‘And [Jesus] said to him,
“Having risen, be going on, thy faith has saved thee.”’
Saved thee? I dig deeper. It’s sozo in the Greek. Many
translations render sozo as being made ‘well’ or
‘whole,’ but its literal meaning, I read it –
‘to save.’ Sozo means salvation. It means true
wellness, complete wholeness. To live sozo is to live the full
life. Jesus came that we might live life to the full; He came to
give us sozo. And when did the leper receive sozo - the saving to
the full, whole life? When he returned and gave thanks. I lay down
very saving is associated with our gratitude.”

motivational speaker, as one of the originators of the personal

Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
When in doubt, just take the next small step.
Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends
and parents will. Stay in touch.
Pay off your credit cards every month.
You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
It's OK to let your children see you cry.
Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their
journey is all about.
If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God
Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood, but the second one
is up to you and no one else.
When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no
for an answer.
Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie.
Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
Over prepare, then go with the flow.
Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
The most important sex organ is the brain.
No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
Frame every so-called disaster with these words, 'In five years,
will this matter?'
Always choose life.
Forgive everyone everything.
What other people think of you is none of your business.
Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.
However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
Believe in miracles.
God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you
did or didn't do.
Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.
Your children get only one childhood.
All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's,
we'd grab ours back.
Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
The best is yet to come.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
