Activating Unified Persistent Prayer in Communities & Cities

Following Jesus out of bias and into the Heights . . .

In August of 2013, as a part of the initial Leading in These Times with Pastor Francis Anfuso, I was asked to join Pastor Joy Johnson and Pastor Scott Hagan on the racial reconciliation issue. My specific role was intercession. It sounded huge, but I actually had no idea of the width, height, breadth and depths - nor the volatility - that would be revealed in the days to come. Born and raised in Michigan, I considered myself one of the “good guys from the North” and didn’t think that I had any racial prejudice. After all, I had grown up in bi-racial schools and lived just a few blocks from the “black part of town”. Nevertheless, I asked the Lord to search my heart and see if there be any wicked way in me (Psalm 139:23-24). (Read what happened next . . . )

Repentance and Obedience

Repenting means experiencing a change of mind that now sees God as true and beautiful and worthy of all our praise and all our obedience. - John Piper
