We have needs in our churches. Cool videos, logos, lights, pretty people, greeters, parking teams, Disney shows for the kids. None of these are bad. But sometimes we need to be reminded what the church looks like outside of our walls.
Youcef Nadarkhani is a Christian pastor in Iran who is being sentenced to death if he does not renounce his Christian faith.
So as you sit in your next meeting deciding where you are gonna launch your next campus, or trying to figure out how to increase your churches social media presence, stop and pray for Youcef Nadarkhani and maybe head over to the bar for lunch and share a beer and Jesus with someone.
Then sign this and try to help stop this excecution…It’s so much bigger than we think…
