Thoughts as we approach September 11


September_11_Photo_MontageOf course, I had to add my thoughts to all the buzz about Pastor Terry Jones’s plans to burn Qur’ans tomorrow.

Burning Qur’ans does not build bridges of love and respect, instead it builds walls of fear and hate. Also, this kind of action tears down years of friendship-building by dedicated followers of Christ who have shown His love to anyone of any faith.

Just a short distance from Pastor Jones’ church is a thriving Campus Crusade for Christ ministry at the University of Florida in Gainesville. The director of this campus student ministry shares an excellent perspective on the situation on his blog.

Also, Joel Rosenberg and Anne Graham Lotz are calling for a worldwide simulcast event, “Wake Up Call” next year on the tenth anniversary of 9/11. Read more from Joel or find out more details here.
