An accomplished rookie quarterback with the National Football League has stated that he became a Christian after Jesus visited him in a dream.
Russell Wilson, a native of Richmond, Va., who quarterbacks for the Seattle Seahawks, explained in a recent video about his religious background and spiritual decision.
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 >>
They cross the U.S.-Mexico border for a night of pleasure in Tijuana, buying sex and illegal drugs. The dirty little secret is that some of the Americans cross the border to buy sex from children as young as six and seven-years-old.
Jodie Mac Lean was on a prayer-walk in the red light district of Tijuana as part of her Youth With A Mission (YWAM) training in 2010 when her small group encountered something unexpected.
"There was a man selling two little girls, and they were six or seven-years-old," she recalls. more >>
