« Teaching "Theology, Culture and U2" at North Fresno Church | Main | Who will "born again" Christians vote for? »

September 30, 2011


I have often said that there are no insignificant ministries. Who are we to say that my twins with their "hug" ministry aren't just as relivant as James is preaching. How do we know that one Sunday they have given a hug to someone who was struggling and it gave them a little strength for that day?
I had the privelidge of serving a family who's daughter is severely disabled. I can tell you with no cliche intended that I got more than I gave. This child in her innocence taught me more about love, both the love she gave me and the love God taught me through her, than any sermon. Who are we to say that God can't speak through these, His creation, just as much as those He calls to the pulpit or to large TV ministries and megachurches? I'm not gonna put God in that box.

Thanks, Kim. Your daughters indeed have the spiritual gift of hugging. I'll let them minister to me any day!

    U2: Rock 'n' Roll to Change the World

    From its beginning in 1976, U2 has consistently interacted with its environment, both influencing and being influenced by the world around. Giving as much attention to social, political and spiritual issues as it does musical creativity, this Irish quartet provides a unique case study in the intersection of artistic expression and cultural engagement.
