The works of 17th century Dutch master Rembrandt hang in many of the world’s most prestigious institutions and museums. He is considered by most art historians to be one of the greatest painters in European history. The anniversary of his birth was earlier this month, so I recently took a trip down to the Art Institute of Chicago to learn about this famous painter with Dr. John Walford, Professor of Art History at Wheaton College.

Click here for Tuesday’s feature:

Sometimes for the believer we can struggle with balancing the hope of the new heaven and earth with the uncertainty of what we should do in the here and now. How do we live by the promise of coming paradise with the courage of doing good works for God’s glory while we wait?

Dr. Andrew Davis, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church, Durham, NC, helps us consider this issue.

The April 2010 Table Talk Magazine published a short article written by Dr. Davis on today’s theme entitled: The Bravest and Newest World.

Conversation: Spoken Word as Ministry with Micah Bournes

In Church, Culture, General Interest, Religion and Worldviews, Scripture, Testimonies on April 12, 2010 at 8:30 am

In the 1980s and 1990’s an art form emerged out of the Hip-Hop and Rap subcultures known as “Spoken Word”–poetry that tended to be critical in nature regarding social concerns or inequities. Since that time, it has become a popular form of expression for more than protest, but continues to be provocative in its focus.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Micah Bournes, a spoken word artist and Senior at the Moody Bible Institute, who uses it as a medium to share the gospel.

If you’d like to contact Micah his email address is: micahbournes@yahoo.com

Here are the complete versions of the spoken word pieces used in today’s feature plus a bonus one:

After the devastating earthquake in Haiti, there are thousands of orphans who have truly lost everything. In one moment, all they knew was taken away. For many of these children, they have never had the chance to say goodbye.
