Japan Earthquake and Tsunami
Our good friend Pastor Brian Houston of Hillsong Church posted these words in his weekly blog. I appreciate the heart of mercy and compassion in this tragic time for the people of Japan.

Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun”. Psalm 37: 1-6

Oswald Chambers, the great Scottish Preacher and Author (1874-1917) once said “Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways […]
