The North American Church is finding itself in an odd position, where it is now receiving missionaries from the countries it once sent missionaries to. With this shifting of the "Christian center of gravity" away from the West, what role should the North American Church – with the U.S. still ranked as the top missionary-sending country in world history – now play in global mission?
Brother Andrew has a natural kindness to him that makes those around him – even people meeting him for the first time – feel at ease and as if they've known him for years. Perhaps this gift is part of the reason why the Open Doors founder has been so successful in befriending Hamas, Taliban, and other Muslim extremist leaders, while openly sharing his Christian faith with them.
Sources close to the Oval Office are saying that there was disagreement within the Obama administration with how the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) handled the Rev.

Supporters of traditional marriage and fans of the much-talked-about (as well as much-sung-about) Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich are ready to head to their nearest Chick-fil-A restaurant to encourage the company's president Dan Cathy, who recently became the target of gay activists after he stated his support for the traditional family in several recent interviews.
