Ministry Today Magazine
May 19, 2008
I am honored to have an article published in this month's Ministry Today magazine entitled Lessons from Egypt. You can read the article on their website, although it had to be greatly reduced to fit the space available. That was a valuable exercise in itself to reduce a 2500 word article to 750 words. I found out that a lot of what I thought was critical could be eliminated and the article still have meaning. Yet the larger article is worth reading in its entirety, so I am attaching it to this post below. You can read the abbreviated or full versions or both if you so choose. See how many choices this site brings you!
Only two days and counting until the launch of the radio show, Your PurposeQuest: The Power of a Focused Life. Don't forget to tune in this Wednesday at 9 AM Eastern U.S. time for the live broadcast, or go back to the site to download the show and listen later. Each week the episode will be listed on the Voice America site along with my guest for that week.
This is the first time since 1998 that I am in Pittsburgh at this time of the year. Usually I am in Zimbabwe, but this year is a different kind of year. My heart is with the people there as they prepare for their run-off election (more on that later this week), but for now, I am home and enjoying it. I always said that I don't mind going and I don't mind staying home. Just give me meaningful work, Lord.
Speaking of Pittsburgh, our local pro ice hockey team, the Penguins, is in the Stanley Cup finals! We are all so excited and Cup fever is sweeping the city. We aren't sure who we will play in the finals, either Dallas or Detroit, but we are sure that we will win no matter who it is. Go Pens!
