Hauns Go to Africa

Our friends William & Heidi & their little boy Trey are getting ready to move to Ghana. They've put up a website that will be updated regularly concerning their trip (haunsinafrica.com). Here are a couple of practical things you can do to be a part of this trip: 1. Bookmark the website and pray for them (see Aug. 25th entry on their blog), 2. and support them financially (moving to Ghana ain't cheap)

I thought of William & Heidi a few days ago when I was reading a book called, "The Culturally Savvy Christian" by Dick Staub. At the beginning of the book, Staub discusses the Christian's relationship with culture through the means of art. He then gives a brief definition of what he terms the "culturally savvy Christian": "The culturally savvy Christian is serious about faith, savvy about faith and culture, and skilled in relating the two." Here's a promo video:

Most people are just commenting to comment for credit, LOL, but I thought the vid was very intuitive, I love the guy's video style, and I wonder what kind of equipment he uses, its all very sleek and polished. I hope their journey goes well.

Its awesome what people do for Christ these days. Most of the time we take it forgranted that we can serve Christ without being persecuted in the United States. We need to pray for the Hanes family that God will take care of them and let them lead others to Christ.

wes mcmurray said...
