I know Zach Hunter. I met him and had dinner with him and his mom after a showing of the movie Amazing Grace, that great movie on the life of the Christian parliamentarian William Wilberforce and his success in passing the laws to ban slavery in England.

I love this unconventional yet beautiful video presentation of the gospel. A great investment of five minutes.

As I’m sure many of you are, Nanci and I have been burdened for the people of Japan. We’ve been praying for people there, especially the believers, that the gospel could be spread in the midst of devastation.
With so many heartbreaking reports of death and loss, this news story telling the rescue of a baby girl is a wonderful glimpse of God’s mercy and saving grace.

This two-minute video is from Life International, a prolife ministry that views the global issues created by abortion as a mission field. The video ties the abortion issue to the gospel, which I really like. It’s great for your own information, or possibility for using at your church. I really like that abortion isn’t made to feel like an add-on issue, but that it naturally connects with people’s need for the gospel.

- Questions and Answers
In today’s blog, I’m answering one final question that was asked by a reader:
