⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pastor’s ‘Peanuts’-Inspired NYC Sidewalk Ministry Offering ‘Spiritual Help’ Is a Big Hit (via http://www.faithwire.com) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A New York City pastor has launched a unique and successful sidewalk ministry inspired by the cartoon “Peanuts”. Pastor Gregory Fryer of Immanuel Lutheran Church has been setting up shop Tuesday mornings outside his church at a makeshift yellow both, which includes signage that reads, “Spiritual help 5 cents” and “the pastor is in.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s an overall image that looks almost exactly like Lucy van Pelt’s iconic “Psychiatric Help Booth” from Peanuts. But it’s not simply a cute effort aimed at garnering media attention. Instead, it’s a quest to engage the community by speaking and praying with those in need. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a series of Facebook messages discussing the effort, Fryer has said the booth, which is on the corner of 88th and Lexington, is quickly “becoming a high point” of his week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “A newspaper reporter drew my attention of how Lucy should offer psychiatric aid to others. Just a child, dealing with important matters. The same could be said of me: that it is excessively bold for me to make myself available to a complex world. But here is the thing: I know that I have no particular wisdom to share with others. But the Bible does. The teachings of the Church do. I have spent my career studying these things, and I am happy to share whatever I have learned.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ People, of course, have also come by to talk about much deeper issues as well. “People talk to me about questions of romance, conflict within family, their job,” he told WNYW-TV. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s an effort Fryer said he had been thinking about for years, and one he finally decided to launch, as he’s “getting older” and figured he’d better launch the booth while he still can. He’s hoping other churches will consider doing something similar, considering the success he’s seen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fryer said he’s not sure how he’ll handle the booth once winter intensifies, but that he’s overjoyed by the experience. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ <<Click the link in our BIO to read the full article.>>

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Biblical Importance of Rain in Israel (via: www.oneforisrael.org) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Prayers for rain began in earnest at the feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) and visitors to Israel will often notice the signs about the water shortage. Like most things in Israel, rain and drought are also deeply spiritual subjects, and God has a lot to say about it all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The main natural water source in Israel is the Sea of Galilee, or the Kinneret, as they call it here. The Kinneret is the source of the river Jordan, which flows into the Dead Sea. (‘Kinneret’ means stringed instrument – the sea is so-called because of its shape resembling the harp of David). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And the only way that this natural reservoir can serve the entire country is if it is continually replenished… from the sky. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Surrounding Israel are nations who have their own flowing water sources – Egypt has the Nile, and the Euphrates serves the Mesopotamian basin, but Israel has no such permanent and reliable source of water. Civilisations quickly sprung up around the rivers that could sustain life, but God led his people to a land where they are utterly at the mercy of the skies… and therefore completely dependent on the one who can make it rain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As John Piper says in his book on fasting, A Hunger For God; “The people of God are often called to go without the ordinary means of life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Things that come naturally and without thought for most of the world’s population become a matter of trust and dependence. In stopping the natural things that we take for granted, God causes us to look up to him, and to depend upon him to meet our needs. He loves his children to depend upon him and his provision, rather than taking the natural for granted, and relying on their own abilities to cope. He wanted them to have to come to him and talk to him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jesus reminds us that God is merciful to everyone, regardless of their behaviour. How many times does he protect and deliver his people, Israel – even in their sin? And how extreme is his kindness to die for us while we were still sinners? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ <<Click our the link in our BIO to read the full article.>>

Revenge of the Meek (via ffoz.org) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yeshua says, “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5). Who are the meek? The Greek text behind this saying implies one who is mild-mannered, gentle, soft, and passive. Why are the passive and meek-hearted destined to possess the earth? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yeshua did not teach in Greek. He did not have passivity or sheepishness in mind when he spoke of the blessed meek. Instead, the saying alludes to the Hebrew of Psalm 37:11 which says, “The humble (anavim) will inherit the land.” The Hebrew anavim refers not to one who is meek and mild-mannered but rather to the powerless, the downtrodden, the subjugated, and the victimized. Psalm 37 pairs “the humble” with those who wait for the LORD, and it contrasts the humble against evildoers and the wicked: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ // For evildoers will be cut off, but those who wait for the LORD, they will inherit the land. Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more … but the humble will inherit the land. // (Psalm 37:9-11) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ // Great is the peace of the humble, as it is written [in Psalm 37:11], “But the humble will inherit the land and delight themselves in abundant peace.” // (Sifre, Numbers 42) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Hebrew word for “earth” (eretz) also means “land” and in this context it refers specifically to the holy land, i.e., the land of Israel. Therefore, Matthew 5:5 should be understood to say “Blessed are the subjugated and downtrodden, for they will inherit the land of Israel.” In this sense, the beatitude refers to the faithful Jewish people who suffer under the oppression of exile and foreign domination. The Messianic Era will reverse the roles. Those who were once powerless and humbled under the boot of the gentile nations will possess the Promised Land and subjugate their enemies. Then the words of Mary’s prophecy will be fulfilled: “He has brought down rulers from their thrones, and has exalted those who were humble” (Luke 1:52). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (Click on the link in our bio for the full article)

Izzy here. As you may know, we're primarily a volunteer-run ministry. It is one of the joys of my life to work with this inner circle of "stewards", as we like to call ourselves. Our volunteers check in weekly to let me know how their ministries under the Holy Language flag are going. Do you know Kevin? He fills our student care ministry. So if you've ever had issues with your account etc, you've probably talked with him. This week Kevin shared something in his report that really touched me. I wanted to share it with you here so you could say "amen" to this as a prayer for our entire community. "My Desire. My desire is to continually be more spiritual and led by the spirit. On fire and Yeshua like in all my ways. To dream dreams and prophesy in the spirit and not from my imagination. To be merciful and loving. To always speak words of compassion, but also speak true words in the spirit, even if it wont be received well. To have everything I do point to Yeshua. To be able to retain, understand and relay scripture properly without strange teachings and being weird. To be obedient even when I don't understand. To give more than I receive. To be a Mashiach to this world to shine brightly and fully. To be free and able to move in action and be fluid wherever I can do the most good at Ha'Shem's desire not mine. To be able to do all this, even though I do not feel worthy and even if it would take my life. Should this not be everyone's desire? I pray these things for all of us." CAN I GET AN "AMEYN"? By the way, there's a story behind this picture. Kevin often does his student care work at a Village Inn. I'm from Canada and we don't have those where I come from, so when I first saw them I thought it was a motel of some kind aaahaha. This last week it got really cold here in Albuquerque. My daughter Tirzah and I go out on a weekly "abba daughter" date. Usually we go out for ice cream, but I was like "it's way too cold! Let's go out for hot chocolate instead!" So we went to Village Inn for the first time ever, and sent Kevin a selfie with our yellow cup. And he sent this one back. And now you know...the rest of the story. :)
