heart status of today's university students.
Boston MA (Feb.21, 2006) When Motown recording artist Kem performed at the Berklee Performance Center on Sunday night, love was the point. It wasn't the ooh-baby-baby love of so many R&B smoothies, though. Kem sang about the committed love of two people. He talked about the love of community. Above all, he celebrated the love of life and God.

"People of this world do not understand our Christian language. A person won't believe something until it speaks to his feelings and his spirit. The media uses what they know about how the mind works to speak to people and sell us whatever they want." (excerpt from In Defense for the Christian Arts) The Arts originally started in the church. I believe the church has become afraid of the Arts. We need to teach the church, not say the 'Arts are corrupt', or 'stay away' or 'you can't be an artist and a Christian'. Rather, if the arts are corrupt, let's redeem them and use them as a source of healing and a tool for evangelism. [COMMENTS(2)]
Shawn Keith, a co-worker of Walt Day at Athletes in Action, announces the availability of an exciting DVD:
When the Red Sox won their first World Series since 1918, the supposed "Curse of the Bambino" was finally reversed. Now, the "Reversing the Curse" DVD tells the exciting story of how the team accomplished their history making comeback against the Yankees, went on to win the World Series, and stories of faith from the players that made these events possible.
Roberto Miranda Book Review: Total Truth - Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural Captivity Roberto Miranda writes: I would like to highly recommend Nancy Pearcey's book, Total Truth. It is one of the most penetrating analyses I have read on how imperceptibly the secular understanding of reality can penetrate the mind of the Christian, creating a dual outlook. Many Christians have compartmentalized their faith, relegating spiritual values to the "spiritual' realm, and processing all other aspects of their lives--work, marriage, relationships, finances, politics-- through an essentially secular lens.
