Give a Child for Christmas

We are privileged people. Many children in the world are not, like this little orphaned child in Swaziland. Would you think of making Christmas real for these children each day of the year by considering donating to HopeChest?

At the Jesus Creed blog, we are asking you to consider joining Kris and me in supporting a CarePoint in Swaziland that could make a life-saving and spiritual difference in the lives of hundreds of underfed and orphaned children. Here is our little Swazi child to the right; you can help a child like this too, and make Christmas come true for little orphaned children in Swaziland.

Here’s what we are asking you to do: We want to join together financially, in prayer, and eventually in trips to Swaziland. We want to focus the Jesus Creed blog’s concern on a CarePoint called Mabanteneni. We are committing funds to HopeChest, an organization designed by Tom Davis, and they will process our gifts and provide funds and services for Mabanteneni and the children there. By the way, Art and Liz Boulet adopted a little Swazi child, too.

But this is more than giving money for food. We want to help build a sustainable infrastructure at Mabanteneni.  Thus, I want to share with you my goal: I’m praying and yearning and hoping you will join us to begin by providing healthy food for children and discipleship training by a local pastor. Then we want to help with the construction of structures, including things like a kitchen, a well for clean water, fences for security….

How do you give? If you’d like to sponsor a child, click on our Sponsor Child page. There are also some pictures of children and CarePoints. And do check out Nsoko. It costs only about 34 dollars per month to care for the basic needs of an orphaned child.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
