The government is back in business, the baseball playoffs are getting closer to the World Series and the NBA season will be starting soon. Liberty University’s homecoming was today and a big college football game is about to happen this evening between Clemson and Florida State; Death Valley will be quite alive tonight. With that said, I am going to go ahead with this week’s Weekly Scoop. The following links are ones I believe will be worth your time to check out:
Simply stated, this guy’s story is one that you should check out. This is a true example of how the church should be: http://blog.vyrso.com/2013/10/14/chasing-god-one-mans-journey-into-americas-slums/.
Ann Voskamp shares a letter one of her friend’s wrote on her blog. I decided I would share it as well. It is a letter to the church from Anita Renfroe. This is my prayer for the church as well: http://www.aholyexperience.com/2013/10/dear-church-why-its-okay-to-really-need-each-other/.
Another great story I saw making its way around social media this week was this story about a 15 year old orphan not just attending a church, but standing up during the service to ask if anyone wanted to adopt him: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2463498/Orphan-Davion-Only-goes-church-asks-adopt-him.html.
Phil Cooke shares a story ESPN put out that shares a pro-life perspective. Not many channels are willing to put something like this on TV, especially a sports channel. I applaud ESPN for sharing this story and I pray more like them make the news: http://philcooke.com/espns-unexpected-pro-life-video/.

Last, I want to share an article by Ed Stetzer on discipleship. There is a movement happening in the church centered on discipleship. This is a great movement and important simply because the church is to be making disciples. Check out what ed Stetzer has to say about it: http://www.christianitytoday.com/edstetzer/2013/august/better-discipleship.html.
