"So an old black man, an old white man, and an old Jewish man are sitting around talking..." Sounds like the beginning of a really great joke but it actually was the beginning of a really great house church meeting last night. I could also have started by saying "So an asian girl, a black girl and a white girl were..." or even "So a high school student, a college student and teacher were..." or "So two Puerto Ricans and a Colombian are looking for Jesus..." You get the picture and it is the picture of the Kingdom of God.
"After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count,
from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb."
We will be participating in this campaign in a big way. Stay tuned or let us know that you want to be involved. Tampa is gonna have a lot of potential for international attention this year and it just seems righteous for us to deflect that attention to the cries of the poor in Africa.
