"You have to work hard to offend Christians. By nature, Christians are the most forgiving, understanding, and thoughtful group of people I've ever dealt with. They never assume the worst. They appreciate the importance of having different perspectives. They're slow to anger, quick to forgive, and almost never make rash judgments or act in anything less than a spirit of total love . . . No, wait--I'm thinking of Labrador retrievers!" David Learn, 1998

Two neat opportunities

     1. HARVEST http://www.harvest.org/crusades/2011/anaheim/ Harvest just ended at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California but if you weren't there, you still haven't missed it! You can watch all three nights of wonderful music, stories and interviews with people like Bethany Hamilton, who still wins championships for her surfing despite losing one arm to a shark, plus powerful, personable messages by Greg Laurie. (There will be another Harvest at 6 PM on Sept. 10 at the Dodger Stadium in L.A. See http://www.harvest.org/crusades/2011/los-angeles/get-involved/upcoming-meetings.html  You need to get there 3-4 hours early, if you can.) 
     2. METAMORPHOSIS www.illustramedia.com has just produced a beautiful documentary, Metamorphosis: The Beauty and Design of Butterflies, filming the transition of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly inside the chrysalis, evidence of intelligent design. You can read about it, see a trailer, order the DVD and/or--if you live in Southern California-- attend the premiere screening in Fullerton on Sept.17. 

See you on Sept. 10th at Dodger Stadium in LA and September 17th at Plummer Auditorium in Fullerton!
