In this week’s #GreatCommission Recap…
We discuss ways you can learn and pray for the ongoing conflicts in Haiti and Syria, share articles from D. Scott Hildreth and George Robinson, and remind you of opportunities to engage in the upcoming weeks.
This week, our hearts have been stirred by the suffering of people around the world. As we read news of Haiti and Syria, let’s remember to pray for those who are in harm’s way. Also, if you know (or meet) someone from those countries, take time to ask about their families and pray with them.
A Global Christian has an eye to the nations and a heart for God’s mission.
To learn more and gain a deeper understanding of how you can pray for these two countries, check out the following resources:
A CONVERSATION WITH YOUR KIDS: IMMIGRATION AND THE GOSPEL
CGCS Director Scott Hildreth provides helpful parenting insights regarding conversations about immigration and the gospel.

WHY ALL GOOD CHRISTIANS SHOULD CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN
SEBTS Professor George Robinson discusses the importance of engaging our culture on Halloween rather than staying in our Christian circles.
“The reason I propose that good Christians celebrate Halloween and stay home from the ‘Christian alternatives’ is that Halloween is the only night of the year in our culture where people far from God actually go door-to-door to believing people’s homes.”
