watching_ships: Christian podcast

 Hi there! I've been a member of this community for a while and I just wanted to share something with you all that I thought might interest you.

I am a part of a ministry called GodlyGals (you can also find us at godly_gals) that focuses on equipping believers, providing a place for fellowship, and encouraging one another in our walks with Christ. It has been a phenomenal five years and God had blessed the ministry so much. Our growth lately has been such an encouragement and I look forward to the future as we move forward to where the Lord would have us go.

We have recently ventured into podcasting and it's been so great. We get to communicate with members of our community live, as well as people who just happen to drop in. We've met so many great people that way. It's really been amazing. In our podcast we talk about a variety of topics regarding the Christian faith. I really just wanted to let this community know about it so that you could stop by for one of our live shows or listen to it later (at www.godlygals.com/blog) if you can't make it to the live show. The wider our audience, the better the show.

Feel free to share this with your friends!
Our next podcast will be:

watching_ships: a little bit of my testimony

(taken from a post i made on http://www.godlygals.com/board)

I have been hesitant to bring this up, but I did want to share this with you ladies. I guess I've never really shared my testimony, and this is a pretty large part of it. It was at this point in my life that I felt God steering me in a clear direction. Anyway. Here goes.

When I was a sophomore in high school it became really clear that I was not fitting into the same mold my friends were. So many that claimed to be Christians were falling away from their faith or it was becoming clear that they hadn't had any to begin with. I was really alienated and ridiculed for standing up for my faith and morals in general. It was a tough time. Most of my emotions I kept pent up and began to fall into deep depression. My life was completely different. I had no one to turn to. My friends were participating in activities regularly that I knew, as a child of God, I had no business being a part of. I desired their friendships again, but not the situations I would have to put myself through to have that. I praise God for giving me the strength to stand up during all of that. He is the only reason I didn't fall. Now, these were my school friends. Since I went to church in a different town it made school life and church life two completely different worlds (which is a story all its own). At the same time, the few friends I had in the youth group at church began ignoring me. This included my best friend. It was traumatizing.

Anyway, I really wanted to share that. Only a few other people know about this because I am not sure how I feel about telling this to people. I just want to thank God for allowing me to do this tiny amount of work for His kingdom. GodlyGals (and godly_gals!) has been such a blessing to me and to many of the girls who have become a part of it. We all devote our time to helping around there so that even just one person might be reached for Christ. As time goes on, it is easy to see that God has this ministry in His hand and that there is a plan for it.

watching_ships: The Face of Jesus

The Face of Jesus


The face of Jesus:

marred more than any man--
spit upon,
slapped,
thorn-pierced,
bloodied,
sweating,
the beard plucked,
twisted in pain--

For my salvation.

A glorious face, now.

Let its light shine on me, O Light of Life.

Let Your radiance fall on me, Sun and Savior,

Lighten my darkness.

Then grant me this by Your grace:

That I, in turn, may give

"The light of the knowledge of the glory of God" (2 Cor 4:6 AV)

As I see it in the face of Jesus Christ.

caddy_says: interview request

Hi everyone,

I'm Ashley, a journalism student from Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
I'm working on an article for a class about Christian music and how young people use it to express/reinforce faith, and the stereotypes/barriers they face, as fans.

I'm trying to get an idea of some of the issues and myths that exist about being a fan of Christian music/bands who have members that openly identify themselves as Christians, and I'd like to talk to as many people as possible. Specifically, I'm looking for fans of Underoath, but if you're not and still want to participate, that's no problem.

If anyone in this community is interested in answering a few questions, you can reach me by either responding to this post, or sending me an email (cady_says@hotmail.com). After we get in contact, I'll send you my questions, and you take it from there. My deadline is this Friday, march 23, so I'd be hoping to get responses some time before that.

In case anyone's wary, I've done this livejournal-mass-interview process before, for an article on tattooing, and one on Canadian television.

Thanks a lot for your help!

(i'm not great with all the fancy lj cuts/tags/whatever, but this request will also be posted to a few other communities)
