    My spirit is so aflame that I can hardly keep my seat on this chair. God IS calling me out! Out of this mundane, hand wringing, political motivating, America worshiping, world loving generation. Please don’t misunderstand (and I know YOU won’t). I am eternally greatful that God chose me to be born in America, but I am increasingly saddened that this so-called Christian Nation is what we worship. Even those upset about morality going down the tubes continue to call us back to America’s roots! To this I say, NO!! We need faith in God! Not faith in America! Of course they would send a glossy pen up about the movies. I, myself, once believed that we must make ourselves more “inviting” in order to reach the lost. I am becoming more and more convinced that this is in error. We just need to GLORIFY HIM and SEEK HIM AND THE LOST and HIS SHEEP WILL HEAR HIS VOICE!

    Okay, this is turning into a post…so stay tuned. I love you and am so glad that I found you and your glorious ministry to call us to our roots.

    Interesting that you wrote on the subject of being “called”….check my blog. When did you write this? I wrote mine last night….Great minds think alike. And so do we! Haha.

    Carmen, Carmen, Carmen….WOW…what a powerful post girlfriend. When will it stop? When will we accept being “called out?” It’s far to powerful to remember what we were PASSED OVER for…wow…
    I’ve attended several seder meals and the story just grips me everytime…without that, our story stops..I am with you sister…we MUST be called out in order to reach those around us who are ICE COLD…we must be willing to do it one simple act of kindness at a time…

    Funny….I made the postcard for our church and it had 2 words….ONE HOPE…that seemed to sum it up quite well.

    love you…
    your willing to be “called out” sister!

    amazing as usual…I’ll be passing it on!:)

    Thank you, precious friend, for this “lovingly–and powerfully!–loaded”–post.

    As I read about your reaction to the movie mailer, I recalled Christmas Eve, two year ago, as I sat in our local fellowship (which shall remain nameless). Tears streamed down my face as I watched “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” play on the sanctuary monitors. Every now and then, the movie would stop for the pastor to note the ways that Jesus was like Rudolph. (I AM NOT KIDDING!) My husband noticed my tears and asked, “What’s wrong?” “WHAT’S WRONG?” I whispered (a little too loudly). “What’s WRONG? Are you KIDDING me? Pastor ****** is comparing Jesus Christ to RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER!!!!!!”

    About five weeks later, the Lord specifically and unquestionably CALLED US OUT of that church! And, He specifically and unquestionably led us to another where God’s Word is our bedrock, Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords, and His Holy Spirit leads as we worship in Spirit and in Truth. Our pastor is also so wonderful to celebrate and teach Jewish heritage.

    What a blessing and a gift! But, my heart still aches for those swimming around in lukewarm waters. That water’s getting colder and staler by the day … 🙁

    Oh I loved this post Carmen!

    Thinking of you and missing you!

    May the light of Yeshua burn even brighter in our hearts this year!

    Shalom my sweet Sister!

    I’m not surprised by the entertaining plug for a church service. Isn’t that what “we” want – fun not faith? How many are really willing to fall crazy in love with God and give up all the fun for a life lived out in faith for Him!?
