The Word Became Flesh

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” John 1:14 might be one of the most quoted verses during the Christmas season. However, it’s not just a saying. The verse states that when Jesus became flesh and dwelt among us, He changed His mode of operation.  Sometimes that’s what we need to do. Jesus himself said, “I have come to give you a new covenant, a totally new way of thinking and of…

A Recent Reflection

A Recent Reflection by Tom Atema The good news is, ceasefires have restored calmness to some parts of Syria.  The bad news is, the country of Syria lay in ruins and the conflict is still not over.  The UN states that, in the first half of 2017 alone, 1.3 million Syrians were newly displaced.  That’s an average of 7,000 people per day who were forced to flee their homes.  Justifiably, the international community is concerned…

People Are Our Most Appreciable Asset

We understand that this statement may not be the norm in faith-based organizations.  Nevertheless, it is a true statement in business and, as a faith-based organization, most of what a faith-based organization possesses goes down in value. Facilities deteriorate, equipment becomes out of date, supplies get used up, etc. - you get the picture. What asset has the greatest potential for actually going up in value? People! People are of tremendous value to God; after…

INSURGENCE OF HOPE

This is a time of both unparalleled need and an unprecedented opportunity. There is no one organization that bears the entire responsibility alone. Heart for Lebanon’s response as a faith-based organization is: We are doing for 3,000 what we wish we could do for 6,000. The crisis around the Syrian civil war has shaken our conscience with images of innocent men, women, and children suffering from the devastation within their own country, while living and…

THE VALUE OF RECYCLED LIVES

For example, students recently participated in a recycling project that taught the Biblical value of stewardship. In class, they learned about how much trash each person produces a day, they multiplied by the number of days in a year and the…

Educational Program was very proud of her children’s grades and thanked every teacher for his/her care. She said “my kids are obsessed with studying, when they first come home after school, they eat and directly go to study. I have never seen them so committed, they have never been absent from school since the beginning of…

VISION TRIP

This is a guest blog written by Karen Springs of Orphan’s Promise on her first Vision Trip with Heart for Lebanon. From the third-row pew, I sit taking in the scene. A children’s choir gathering on risers in the front of the church. A collection of pre-teen girls fixing their hair as they prepare to play the hand bells, and a group of grade schoolers practicing their rendition of ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ on their…
