For those of you who have never before heard the story of Ian and Larissa, prepare to be challenged and encouraged by their inspirational story. Check out their video, hosted by www.desiringgod.org below.

My Coming Out As A Friend of Dan Kelly & Chick-fil-A - A very interesting article written by Shane L. Windmeyer, executive director of Campus Pride in the USA, exploring his interactions with Dan Kelly, President of Chick-fil-A and opponent of Same-Sex Marriage. It is well worth a read.

Food for Thought: Essendon's 'Whatever It Takes' Slogan Depends on Values - Most of us in Australia would be familiar with the recent controversy around professional athletes taking performance enhancing drugs. This article by David Wilson provides some Christian food for thought on the issue.

God Uses Intentionality To Grow Us Spiritually - "The point of seeking God is not that He is hard to find. Rather He desires we constantly invest in this relationship and seek to follow Him in every area of life. This requires intentionality and ultimate priority in a disciple's life." Ed Stetzer provides some interesting statistics and research on "Seeking God" today.

Don't Drink The Dirty Water - "We're drinking from water that will never satisfy if we're not drinking from the Living Water (John 4:7-30)." Lore Ferguson writes a beautiful piece on the importance of getting our water from Jesus and Jesus alone.

7 Strategies To Empower Leaders - "It does no good to invite leaders to be a part of your team if you’re not going to let them lead." Tony Morgan provides some great points on empowering leaders within a church context.

Thought for the day...

"Prayer is a sincere, sensible, affectionate pouring out of the heart and soul to God."
— John Bunyon
