Secret Church honors persecuted Christians

15 hours ago | | | Email

Pastor Katie Endicott of Restored Youth Ministries in Christian has been involved in ministry for 10 years: evangelizing at 19 and pastoring at 20. But she is tired of being comfortable and taking church for granted. So last week, she began a new series with her congregation to stir things up. The series, entitled Church Unusual, kicked off last Thursday at 7 p.m. with Secret Church.Secret church is inspired by a similar program by Pastor David Platt of The Church at Brook Hills. In most normal services at RYM, there is worship followed by a short message. Secret Church is a radical decomposition of the familiarity associated with church.

This is proven in I John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” With this being said I think that too many of us are held back by our past from fulfilling God’s plans for our future. We can accept God’s forgiveness but sometimes we simply cannot forgive ourselves.

Human eyes still needed

Although air travel had never been devoid of bad guys and hijackers pre-9/11, it is a distinction in history that that day, 13 years ago, marked a definite loss of innocence with regards to the airplane. Post-9/11, very little affecting air security is left to chance, with increasing security restrictions and measures being added to try and keep up with terroristic innovations. Starting this week, for instance, all passengers in United States-bound flights flying out of certain airports in th...
