Have you ever been to camp? Or maybe a work retreat? Or just played on a sports team in high school? If you’ve done any of these things, odds are you’ve participated in something called a “trust building exercise.” Let me explain. The trust exercise is when a team gathers behind one member, while – at the same time, that single member is blindfolded and told to fall backwards, trusting that the rest of the team will catch them. Sounds kind of scary, right? Usually it takes a few tries before the blindfolded person is able to fall backwards and not stop themselves.

For three hours last year, every email sent through a British Internet provider was re-routed to a single account. People started posting their “bounce back” messages on Twitter, wondering why their dinner reservation, business emails, and private digital correspondence were all being sent to somebody named Steve. After some investigation the company realized that a programming glitch was responsible for the malfunction and they quickly fixed the problem. However, all these emails inadvertently getting shuffled over to Steve got me thinking.

Recently I heard a message that Bishop Michael Curry delivered at Yale Divinity School on the topic of love. He started the sermon by reading from 1st John:  “Dear friend, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.

Letter from Dr. Joseph Tkach - Feb. 2017

Date: 

February 1, 2017 (All day)

February is Black History Month, and as I reflect on the significant contributions my African-American brothers and sisters have made to our nation and to the church, my mind turns to a wonderful documentary our media department put together over the last few years. This video highlights the Chicago South Side Congregation, a member church of our organization with an inspiring history.

A cold wind blew through a gathering of people. Men and women, black and white, free and slaves stood together and listened as the Emancipation Proclamation was read. It announced a shift in the legal identity of slaves held in Confederate States. From that day on the United States Government declared these men and women to be permanently free. As the gathering cheered, Frederick Douglass took the stage and led the gathering in singing his favorite hymn, Charles Wesley’s “Blow Ye The Trumpet Blow” –

There’s a painter working in Laguna Beach named Andrew Meyers and he’s approaching his art in a totally fresh way. Instead of layering oil paints to produce texture and depth like Van Gogh, Andrew “paints” with thousands of screws. He drills each one into a wood canvas at different levels to create a portrait that’s three-dimensional. And unlike the paintings you’ll find hanging in a museum, Andrew’s work is actually meant to be touched. In fact, he encourages it!

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Of the 66 books of the Bible, Nehemiah might be one of the most overlooked. It doesn’t have the pages of heartfelt prayer and praise that the Psalms do. It doesn’t have the mighty creation story of Genesis. It doesn’t have the life and teachings of Jesus or the theology of Paul. But, as the inspired word of God, it’s important to us just the same.

A few months ago I stumbled across an article entitled “What Would Martin Luther King Jr. Tweet?” written by Alveda King, Dr. King’s niece. I’m sure that many of us remember the great speeches Dr. King gave during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s. But sometimes we can forget that he was first and foremost a preacher. And we can overlook that much of his rhetorical power came from his tenure in the pulpit and immersion in God’s word. He understood that the fight for Civil Rights was tied to his eternal faith in our Lord.

John Bell had a chance to do something most of us will hopefully never be able to do: he held his own heart in his hands. Bell had undergone a successful heart transplant two years earlier, and now, through a program called Heart-to-Heart at Dallas’s Baylor University Medical Center, he was able to hold the organ that had kept him alive for seventy years before it was replaced. This amazing story reminded me of another heart transplant: my own. And while I haven’t undergone a “physical” heart transplant – all of us who follow Christ have experienced a spiritual version of this process.
