#Blessed: The Ministry of Instagram Inspiration

Morgan Harper Nichols and Ruth Chou Simons are part of a movement to bring beauty, truth, and encouragement to millions scrolling on their phones.


Most of our Instagram accounts resemble the modern equivalent of a high school locker: Here are photos of me and my friends, and here are things I find beautiful. Only now, the insides of our lockers are beamed across the world as quickly as we can slam them shut.


Instagram gets a lot of flak for being impossibly aspirational and for fueling competition and personal branding. This is especially true among American women, who are substantially more likely to use the site than their male counterparts (43% to 31%). But it has also come to develop a cadre of professionals who have brought their expertise to the little squares and 15-second clips of Instagram feeds and stories—therapists, poets, life coaches, and artists.


And in between the heavily filtered “outfits of the day” and sparkly sponsored content campaigns, there are also Christians doing their part to bring truth and encouragement this corner of the internet.


With more than a million followers on Instagram, Morgan Harper Nichols is one of them. Her painted and handwritten messages, inspired by the stories sent to her by fans, aren’t explicitly Christian but are undergirded by what her own faith has taught her about hope, grief, fear, self-doubt, and growth. She proclaims lines like “Let joy be joy” and “Take heart. Breathe deep. You have not missed out on what was meant for you.”


Instagram isn’t just about admiring something; it’s also about curating your own space and personality online. That’s why thousands re-post Nichols’s stories each day—a sign that they love her beautiful work, as well it what it says about them and to them.


“What I found was it wasn’t so much that I was ...

"I know two people in my life that 'appear' to have big egos, I know them both very well. One is male - he comes across as having a big ego, lots of bravado, but I have known him a long time and know it is mostly an act. The other person is female, she also comes across as having a big ego, being very sure of herself, but I know her well enough to know she is riddled with insecurity.

Basically what I am saying is, some can appear very sure of themselves, full of bravado and ego,"

Before you try to remove the speck in their eyes, remove the log in your own.

Interview: After Soleimani’s Death, Iran’s Christians Brace for ‘Tsunami of Disaster and Opportunity’

An interview with Lazarus Yeghnazar on why Western Christians should focus on leaders not numbers in the Islamic republic.


The killing of Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani by order of President Donald Trump last week sent shockwaves around the world and prompted retaliation from Iran, an Islamic republic cited by some Christian groups as having one of the highest conversion rates in the world.


Lazarus Yeghnazar, whose research suggests as many as 1 million Christians now live in Iran, has been expecting something like this for years. He believes that, if war comes, it will create a humanitarian crisis but also an open door for evangelism—“a tsunami of disaster and a tsunami of opportunity.” And the 70-year-old Iranian Christian is in a position to know.


Yeghnazar and his wife, Maggie, married in Tehran shortly before the Islamic revolution in 1979. Love for their country and the Iranian church, as well as a successful engineering business, led them to stay in their home during the eight-year Iran-Iraq war.


Shortly after the war ended, the couple emigrated to the United Kingdom, where they began sending money to friends and church leaders in Iran. That effort eventually became 222 Ministries International, a church-planting and training network—still run out of Lazarus’s converted garage—that includes satellite television broadcasts and more than 50 underground churches in Iran. His brother, Sam, founded Elam Ministries, and his nephew, David, now leads that outreach to Iran.


In an interview last year, Yeghnazar predicted that Iran would open up soon and explained how Christians should prepare. In a follow-up this week, he explained how Suleimani’s death affects Iranian Christians.



How are Iranian Christians reacting to Soleimani’s death?


Now, with the drumbeats of war increasing, there is complete ...

[Cfamily]Can We See God from Einstein’s Tower?

Can We See God from Einstein’s Tower?

The great scientist’s grand theories can take us to dizzying heights, but there are realms they cannot reach.


When I was a grad student in Germany, I remember visiting the city of Ulm. Two particular, commingled sights come to mind: first, pausing at the marker for Albert Einstein’s birth in 1879 (before his family moved to Munich six weeks later); and second, ascending the dizzying heights of the 530-foot cathedral tower. The combination strikes me as instructive: Most of us see in Einstein a mind that seemed to unlock the deepest mysteries of the universe. He sought a “theory of everything.” And many have sought to ascend with him into higher realms of insight, through many tiring steps.


Can Einstein bring us closer to God’s view of the world? Oxford University’s Alister McGrath takes up this question in his book, A Theory of Everything (That Matters): A Brief Guide to Einstein, Relativity, and His Surprising Thoughts on God. McGrath—who holds advanced degrees in theology, intellectual history, and molecular biophysics—is a leading light in the dialogue of faith and science.


McGrath does a remarkable job of explaining Einstein’s rigorous and intricate theories. I was particularly struck by his elaboration of the four papers Einstein wrote as a Swiss patent clerk during the miracle year of 1905, including papers setting out the theory of special relativity and describing the “photoelectric effect,” which led both to the development of quantum theory—that light is both a wave and a particle, or, in Einstein’s words, “packets of waves” —and a 1921 Nobel Prize. McGrath, by the way, expertly explains the politics behind the Nobel committee’s decisions, shedding light on why Einstein didn’t receive a prize for his “greatest intellectual ...

Australia Fires Lead to Canceled Mission Trips, Church Climate Change Conversations

Scripture Union evacuates beach teams, Hillsong raises money, and A Rocha explores the biblical response to the blaze.


Every summer, hundreds of young Australians devote two weeks to running Christian programs for families and youth on the beaches of New South Wales and Victoria.


But cataclysmic fires in southeastern Australia have interrupted the efforts of Scripture Union teams in the nation’s most populous states.


Scripture Union has served in the Victoria beach town of Mallacoota for more than 30 years. But when teams showed up to the vacation town this year, the winds changed and the fires began immediately threatening Mallacoota.


As the blazes inched closer, leader Chris Mulherin and his team, along with hundreds of locals and tourists were evacuated to a movie theater were they spent hours in the hot building listening to sirens roar and gas bottles explode outside.


“Part of the sense of wanting to stay was the commitment to the local youth who had been through this extraordinarily difficult experience,” said Mulherin. “Some of them had lost their homes. Others hadn’t. Most of the [tourists] were actually evacuated so they moved on or were going to move on but the locals obviously were still around and so there was this sense that we didn’t really want to leave them.”


One night later, Mulherin and his team opened up a space for young people—locals and tourists alike—to come and process their experience. Then, the students headed back to Melbourne on a boat shortly after Victoria’s premier designated the area as a state of disaster, with Mulherin by helicopter a few days later.


Meanwhile, Scripture Union evacuated eight teams serving on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia’s most populous state.


The Australian bushfires have torched more than 24 million acres and spread ...

[Cfamily]When You Don't Feel Like Laughing
« Reply #1526 on: January 16, 2020, 12:00:12 AM »
When You Don't Feel Like Laughing

When was the last time you laughed?


How do you laugh? Well, if you are my wife, you have a deep laugh that leads to a snorting sound when trying to catch your breath. If you are my mom, you have a wheezing sound where air rushes out the mouth making it hard to catch your breath and respond in any way—and you’re left with stuttering sounds in between the wheezing.


Honestly, both laughs are quite comical, which makes me laugh.


I don’t mean to pick on two of my favorite women in the world, I only mean to use them to make the point that laughter does a body good.


Laughter can be a means to express derision, or it can be a way of dismissing something in a
light-hearted way. The Bible actually uses laughter to describe both occasions.


But these are not my intended definition of laughter in this post. My intended definition is an
expressed emotion that results from something that was lively, amusing, joyous, or pleasurable. In other words, something—maybe a joke, something our child did, a Facebook repost of a funny video, something humorous that happened to us (like wardrobe or a hair clipper malfunction), a story someone told you, our environment, our condition, etc.—made us laugh.


This laughter, in short, is healthy. For instance, Psalm 126:1–2 states,



 

When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.”



Jesus, in the Sermon on the Mount, exclaims, “Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh” (Luke 6:21b). In both these passages, laughter is a positive, healthy, and good expression that stems from God’s joyous work in one’s ...

<p class="deck">The great scientist’s grand theories can take us to dizzying heights, but there are realms they cannot reach.</p>

<p class="text"><span class="dropcap">W</span>hen I was a grad student in Germany, I remember visiting the city of Ulm. Two particular, commingled sights come to mind: first, pausing at the marker for Albert Einstein?s birth in 1879 (before his family moved to Munich six weeks later); and second, ascending the dizzying heights of the 530-foot cathedral tower. The combination strikes me as instructive: Most of us see in Einstein a mind that seemed to unlock the deepest mysteries of the universe. He sought a ?theory of everything.? And many have sought to ascend with him into higher realms of insight, through many tiring steps.</p>

<p class="text">Can Einstein bring us closer to God?s view of the world? Oxford University?s <a href="https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2019/december-web-only/alister-mcgrath-science-and-stories-declare-gods-glory.html" target="_blank" class="">Alister McGrath[/url] takes up this question in his book, <span class="citation">A Theory of Everything (That Matters): A Brief Guide to Einstein, Relativity, and His Surprising Thoughts on God</span>. McGrath?who holds advanced degrees in theology, intellectual history, and molecular biophysics?is a leading light in the dialogue of faith and science.</p>

<p class="text">McGrath does a remarkable job of explaining Einstein?s rigorous and intricate theories. I was particularly struck by his elaboration of the four papers Einstein wrote as a Swiss patent clerk during the miracle year of 1905, including papers setting out the theory of special relativity and describing the ?photoelectric effect,? which led both to the development of quantum theory?that light is both a wave and a particle, or, in Einstein?s words, ?packets of waves? ?and a 1921 Nobel Prize. McGrath, by the way, expertly explains the politics behind the Nobel committee?s decisions, shedding light on why Einstein didn?t receive a prize for his ?greatest intellectual ...</p><p class="more">Continue reading...</p><div class="feedflare">

These articles are completely reprehensible. They repeatedly put the world over the spirit. In the case of Einstein, his idea that the Bible is 'childish' is repeated without comment. And then Christians are told not to try to compare the Big Bang with Genesis.

We're being told, in effect, to give way every time if ephemeral, questionable and changeable scientific theory conflicts with scripture.

"Believers need to avoid making extravagant theological claims about the Big Bang, even if there are some parallels between Einstein?s physics and the doctrine of Creation" .

Really?

I think you need to telling Christians what to do.
