Our prayers go out to all those affected by the devastating tsunamis in the Indian Ocean. If you would like to make a donation to help victims of this disaster, you can contribute online to the Red Cross' International Response Fund here:
If you are unable to contribute financially, please consider adding the victims to your prayers...they do make a difference.
If you are having a difficult time reconciling how God could allow such a thing to happen, you may want to listen to RevTim Podcast TWO, which host Tim Hohm devotes to the subject, as well as the December 27th edition of Lifespring!, in which host Steve Webb touches on it as well. And remember that God's desire is that death be a good thing, a transition to a far better eternal life with Him, as stated by Jesus in John 3:16. Disasters like this remind us that we need to be clear on what we believe in and why as far as our eternal destiny is concerned; there are no guarantees that we can put off deciding such things until tomorrow.
I'd like to welcome The Whole Truth to the GodCast Network. The Whole Truth is a brand-new podcast starting up on January 1st and is hosted by Random out of Stillwater, OK. Inspired by The Living Word it will take you through the entire New Testament in a year, one manageable day at a time. If you've always wanted to read the New Testament but never got around to it, or if you're just better at listening than reading, here is the perfect opportunity to do it. Subscribe now and you'll have one New Year's resolution taken care of for you automatically!
If you're reading this then there's probably nothing here you don't already know, but for strict listeners of the site we're launching a new podcast that will carry announcements and news of what's going on here at the site itself.
This first inaugural podcast covers the TIME magazine article, the Daily Source Code coverage, and the addition of the Lifespring! and ICM Raw shows.
