The government has asked the church to help out with the foster care/adoption crisis going on in the U.S. There are over 14,000 foster care kids in the foster care system in Arizona alone. Mission Community Church, Redemption Church and City of Grace Church have joined together to help solve this problem by spearheading a movement called Arizona 1.27 (based off James 1:17). Learn more on how you can be a part of abolishing this need.

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. (James 1:27, ESV)

All Sons & Daughters

All Sons & Daughters

I love mid-week worship nights. It’s just so easy to get caught up with a busy week and forget to invite God into the hustle and bustle of life. How less stressful life is when God is centered and leading the way. All Sons & Daughters did a long worship set tonight at PhoenixONE and I loved every minute of it. I gave God the time He had been desiring from me in worship and prayer. Wow – He has been so amazing  this year and I love what God has done in my life thus far. Jeff’s message was dead on – Abide in Christ and find rest in Him. Stop with all the methodology of how to draw close to Jesus and just run and cling to Him. Tonight was a fitting way to end the PhoenixONE season – I love that they are back in donwtown Phoenix in the heart of the city. What a great year it has been!

How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
    How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
    and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
    How long will my enemy triumph over me?

Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
    Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,

 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
    and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

But I trust in your unfailing love;
    my heart rejoices in your salvation.
 I will sing the Lord’s praise,
    for he has been good to me.

Psalms 13

Axtell

This is just a quick plug for my good friend Ryan Axtell – worship leader at Cornerstone Chandler. He opened the evening with an acoustic set and I had a good time catching up with him afterwards. His new album The Beauty Becoming comes out this week and you can grab it on iTunes. He has a heart for songwriting and his songs have such powerful lyrics. Check it out and buy it!

City of Grace church puts on a full production for Charles Dicken’s “A Christmas Carol” for Christmas. “Scrooge” is produced and performed by members of the church. I must say I was very impressed with both the sets and the performance of the actors. I found out about it from a friend in the play and she did a great job. I also love that they added the gospel story into the play. This was a fun night and I’m happy I got a chance to go.
