NEWWORLDSON-LEARNING TO BE THE LIGHT
As I watched the State of the Union this week, I just felt the tension behind how deeply our political parties are divided. It's a real challenge because Christians easily get sucked right into the politics. We all have social issues we’re passionate about. We have values, personal styles & ethnic backgrounds. We have work related fears that shape our views on education, government regulation, truth & money. As Christians, it's so easy to let these variables shape our world view even more deeply than our relationship with God.

If you're a collector of great quotes and Bible verses for your Facebook page or whatever, here are a few of MY faves from the past week:

Automatic faucets that don't turn on for me are why I feel invisible. - Mike Couchman
