What a Christian childhood looks like in Iran: Hami’s story – Open Doors

Ragamuffin is the story of beloved Christian songwriter and ragged philosopher Rich Mullins. It covers his early life on a farm in Indiana through his first strides as a professional musician, public figure and, at times, troubled soul who was just, by his own admittance, just an arrow pointing towards Heaven.  The movie doesn’t shy away from the unglamorous side of the man, and in doing so it reveals his honesty, and the need we all have for authenticity with each other.  Watch Trailer

Is this pandemic a “kairos” time to look at our inner world? – Neighbourhood Matters

Ecclesiastes  As we all continue to weather the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the experiences we’ve all been having is the feeling of losing control. Across nations and neighbourhoods, we’ve all been made helpless before the spread of the virus. Never in such a short amount of time have so many humans been forced to make drastic changes to their lives with work, food, family, and health. If we had any illusions about being in control of our lives, they’re long gone by now. 

And while this stripping away of control is a painful experience, according to the biblical book of Ecclesiastes, it’s one of the best worst things that can happen to us. One of the first steps toward biblical wisdom is a posture of total surrender before God. And nothing helps us get there quicker than losing control of our lives. This kind of loss can also help us rediscover the many simple gifts that God provides every day—if we have eyes to see them. In this week’s Church at Home, we’ll reflect on Ecclesiastes and ponder its surprising wisdom.
