“Yet, without true Christians loving one another, Christ says the world cannot be expected to listen, even when we give proper answers. Let us be careful, indeed, to spend a lifetime studying to give honest answers. For years the orthodox, evangelical church has done this very poorly. So it is well to spend time learning to answer the questions of men who are about us. But after we have done our best to communicate to a lost world, still we must never forget that the final apologetic which Jesus gives is the observable love of true Christians for true Christians.” Francis Schaffer, The
Great Evangelical Disaster, pgs. 164-165

And we're off...
We leave in about 7 hours for NOLA. Pray for the people we will meet, that we will be able to be a blessing to them, and that we would glorify God. Pray for our team - safety, strength, unity and that we would exemplify what Francis Schaeffer called "The final apologetic." (HT:Sets 'n Service via Route 5:9)
