    Former Pastor-Chaplain offers Evangelistic Conversation-Starters in a Tech-Crazy World By Michael Ireland, Senior Reporter, ASSIST News Service This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. SEVERN, MD (ANS, May 27, 2015) – Are you ready for a paradigm shift in your thinking about outreach to your community? Joel Freeman, who is a former senior pastor and team chaplain of the NBA Washington Bullets/Wizards, has a revolutionary idea that could help churches in their evangelistic efforts.“We live in a modern world where technology seems to be hindering or even replacing our human interaction. Watch people sitting in a restaurant at the same table. Limited conversation. Just sitting there looking down at their smart phones...smiling…while texting each other,” Freeman told ANS. “You’ve been on an elevator with several people. Everyone is staring at the ‘floor indicator’ above the doorway, hoping that a conversation…

In this former French colony, hundreds of demonstrators gathered at Niamey's grand mosque, shouting “God is Great” in Arabic. During a demonstration in Niger's second city, Zinder, protesters raided shops run by Christians and attacked the French cultural center. They also threw stones at police and burned tires outside Niamey's grand mosque a day after at least four were killed in Zinder. One group badly affected…

  • Real Men Love Jesus (Women too!)
    Real Men Love Jesus (Women too!) By Carol Round, Special to ASSIST News Service  (Writers Opinion) CLAREMORE, OK (ANS – May 24, 2015) “He asked a third time, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ Peter was sad that Jesus asked him a third time, ‘Do you love me?’ He replied, ‘Lord, you know everything; you know I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my sheep’”—John 21:17(CEB).   For over 10 years, my 2001 Honda Passport has sported a bumper sticker stating, “Real Men Love Jesus.” Although women have commented on the slogan, I’ve never had a man mention it—until recently.  As I was approaching a red light, a pickup pulled up next to me. Honking his horn, the driver pointed at me. Did I have a tire going flat? Had…

    WW II movie drama: Christian students hiding Jews from Nazis (Please use this version) By Rusty Wright, Special to ASSIST News Service (ANS Movie Review) MOUNT HERMON, CA (ANS – May 24, 2015) – As the world commemorates the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, a newly-released film dramatically portrays a forgotten story of dedicated Christian students who played a vital role in rescuing hundreds of Jews from Nazi persecution.  Driven by faith, love and conviction, these ordinary people with extraordinary devotion endured great hardship and risked their lives to protect the oppressed from Hitler's terror. Dateline: Holland.  Sound familiar?  The late Corrie ten Boom inspired millions with her 1971 book and 1975 film, The Hiding Place.  For sheltering and aiding Jews, she endured Ravensbruck, a Nazi concentration camp.  Her father and sister perished in the…
