» Luke 2:8-14
And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

Speaking the Truth in Love

The subtitle, "A True Acount of Event & Concerns Related to the Local Churches 1987-1989" alerts the astute reader about an alternative, "official" account of these same events. John Ingalls carefully documents the lengths to which he, and other "concerned brothers", went seeking to rectify the situation. However, John and others were "side-swiped" by an abrupt change in tactics which saw them as "conspirators" and "rebellious ones", accused of being in league with the Devil, and "speaking perverted things". A litany of accusation appeared in the book "Fermentation of the Present Rebellion" published by the Living Stream Ministry (1990) under Witness Lee's name and freely distributed through LSM's distribution network. Meanwhile Maoist-style denunciation meetings attacked John Ingalls & Co during LSM's regular training - sessions expounding the Scripture - a combination which ought to be an oxymoron for any "Christian ministry".

» Quotes and Quips
The blessedness of waiting is lost on those who cannot wait, and the fulfillment of promise is never theirs. They want quick answers to the deepest questions of life and miss the value of those times of anxious waiting, seeking with patient uncertainties until the answers come. They lose the moment when the answers are revealed in dazzling clarity.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Christmas Sermons
Executed by the Nazis for his complicity in a plot to assassinate Hitler, Dietrich Bonhoeffer remains with us today through his writings---far-reaching ripples of deep thought, passionate words, and unflinching character. Including biographical insights, Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Christmas Sermons spans Bonhoeffer's seventeen years as a preacher. This collection of vintage sermons and writings searches out the power and mystery of the Christmas season: its joyous riches and its implications for our lives.
