We Interrupt This Regularly Scheduled Blog . . .

By Mark D. Roberts | Tuesday, September 4, 2007

. . . for a special announcement.

Tod Bolsinger, my friend, fellow pastor and blogger, is preparing to run the Chicago marathon. Why? A change to get away from San Clemente, California to enjoy the Windy City? Probably not. An effort by an almost middle-aged man to preserve his svelte youthfulness? Perhaps.

But, seriously, Tod and several other from his church are running in this marathon to raise money for World Vision’s work in Nkohma, Malawi in Africa. For the most part, the money they raise will be used to help children get adequate nutrition and education, so that they might escape the web of poverty. All of this will be done quite explicitly in the name of Christ. (Tod is the second to the right in this picture.)

Please support Tod and his team, at least with your prayers. If you’re inclined to add some financial support, you can do so easily from Tod’s website. It takes about 90 seconds, and you can give any amount you choose.

Tomorrow I’ll get back to our regularly schedule blog on the mission of the church. But, in a sense, today’s post is a marvelous illustration of that mission in action.

Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
