Technology can really help us and be a great tool for our spiritual development. It can also be a huge stumbling block to it.
Tim Keller is an astute cultural analyst and knows how to apply ancient practices of Bible reading and prayer today.
Last week I posted a conversation with Tim Keller on prayer. This week there is a longer interview in which 10 questions are answered about prayer, READ HERE.
READ: A vibrant prayer life is often grueling and rarely convenient. It’s hard-won. And it’s absolutely worth it.
THINK: How is my prayer life?
The above words are from the introduction to a post by Matt Smethurst regarding a conversation with Tim Keller on prayer. Please read here.
“speak it passionately. But be careful about the tone with which you say it.”

Two nice views of the bay near the San Francisco airport…
From the hotel entrance…
From my room (with a view?)…
For travelers and tourists, some SFO info…
TRAVELER’S ALERT: (again) it took 30 minutes to get my bag at SFO (3rd time here). Then the TREK to the rental car center by their rail system is not easy. Signage to the rental car center is hard to find and is misleading at best, ask someone instead (but at 1am there are few people around to ask). When you come to SFO, plan for 2 hours to get that whole thing sorted out. Nice airport, kind people, but it rival Paris for bad organization. Don’t worry CDG, you’re still the airport to be avoided.
Does our reflection show Christ?
What is a faithful partner?
I would suggest that it is one who sticks with you and helps you through thick and through thin.
For over a decade our organization has been in faithful partnership with Twin Oaks Church in San Jose, CA. This church heard about our vision when they were new and putting together their foreign missions outreach program and have faithfully partnered us through thick and through thin. Pastors from this church have traveled with me in years past to orphanages in Ukraine and to churches in Hungary and Croatia. I am incredibly thankful to God for this church and for their leaders and for thier partnership.
They have a helpful website HERE that include a video by their pastor that helps you understand what they are all about. I will be visiting these faithful partners this weekend and if you are in the Bay Area, I’d love to see you! Here’s Pastor Philip’s welcome to Twin Oaks…
