A California-based web ministry devoted to combating porn addictions and evangelizing those in the porn industry will have a booth at a major sex show held in Canada this weekend.
XXXchurch.com of Pasadena will be witnessing to producers and consumers of pornography at the "Everything To Do With Sex Show" in Toronto, Ontario. Carl Thomas, pastor at XXXchurch, told The Christian Post that the ministry had been going to sex shows since 2002, when they sent volunteers to the Adult Video News (AVN) Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas.
"The concept there was basically we started this website, we're trying to reach out to people not only in the industry but people also that are impacted by the industry in terms of their usage," said Thomas. "We did the AVN 11 years ago. Part of our mission, part of our goal is to try to do more and more so we started doing exoticas in the US and then stepped into Canada." more >>

A new movie is in the works, based on the story of the 23 South Korean Christian missionaries who were taken hostage by the Taliban in 2007 and the ambivalence towards their plight at home.
Directed by Christian South Korean director Lee Jang-Ho, "God's Eye View," tells the story of Christian volunteers kidnapped by Muslim rebels on a missions trip. At home, the film shows the dichotomy of responses: pastors praying for the return of the Christians, while online forums lambasting them for putting themselves in harm's way in the first place and making their country lose face.
Lee saw the film as an opportunity to encourage the audience to critically think about faith and religion. more >>

You reach a certain point in your life when the blessings of your life become abundantly apparent, not the least of which is the very gift of life itself and all the treasures, beauty and magnificence that come with it.
With that awareness however also comes a sense of responsibility, human duty, if you will, to "balance the books" and give back in return for those blessings. This is not to say I or others haven't given back "along the way," but suddenly it seems to take dominance, becoming a priority. Over the years I have, like others, contributed and "given back" to various organizations and causes, albeit somewhat "here and there," trying to make sure I've covered all bases. But also with age – and I suppose wisdom – comes the need to consolidate, "one stop shop" – conserve, focus, and be sure that you make the most out of every effort.
Ever since I was a young boy I had a keen fascination for the Man in the Salvation Army Suit with his bell and his bucket asking me, and the common man, to give – just a little – to help those in need. And for some reason it always seemed "fair" and resonated. I had the sense that a dime – if that was all I had, would do, and further, that dime would actually go to good use – all of it! In short, I trusted the "Man in the Suit" ringing his bell asking me to put something in his kettle. Of course, it never hurt that I also associated all of this during that magical time of Christmas even though I had a good inclination that the work of the Salvation Army was year round – as it is. more >>
