New Book Launched -- On Immigration
On Immigration: A Survey of Biblical Teaching on Issues of Immigration, Immigrants, Foreigners, and Strangers was published by NurturingFaith.net. It is available on their site at the above link. Locally, my book is also available at the following stores:
Chris wrote another book published on Amazon. Lost Prophets is a work of fiction, a hermeneutical guide to Old Testament interpretation, and a cycle of devotional readings or parables for today's church.
Poverty Alleviation Mission Projects
Looking for a mission project for yourself or a small group? Here is a list of suggested opportunities to find appropriate involvement in poverty alleviation ministries ranging from Microfinance, to Fair Trade, to Community Development, to personal service and adopting local families in need. While there are many non-faith programs targeting the issue of poverty alleviation, I am attempting to highlight opportunities that merge faith and poverty alleviation along the lines of principles of Matthew 25.
Need a Speaker?
Chris is available for pulpit supply and interim ministry work, as well as seminars. He is currently working on a book examining the Bible's teaching on issues of economics.
Chris launched Harbin Assurance, working with various lines and companies providing Life, Health, Voluntary, Supplemental, Long Term Care, Medicare Supplemental, and Medicare Advantage policies. He is also working with annuities and able to assist with various strategies for helping you meet your needs for financial assurance and long term care planning.
More than a Goal
Like this site, faith is more than a static goal for which we yearn. Faith is a journey in which we experience God and seek to surrender our lives to God's will. Join with us on this journey of faith. We will attempt to dialogue about issues that make faith more than a static recitation of facts. We will question how the gospel impacts our lives, sharing that journey of grappling with the issues of faith.
We hope to raise questions, struggle with issues, and seek relevance in our experiential journey of faith. Bear with us as we structure this site, even as God continues to mold our lives.
Faith, after all, concerns things like character, dependence, and interdependence. It is so much more than a goal we might reach. It is more like the very journey itself—the experience of letting go of self in order for God to live through our lives.
We invite you to journey with us. We hope it will challenge you. We hope it will encourage you. We hope it will stretch you. The path we will take will not be without its bumps, twists, and turns. It will not all be easy going. If it were so, it would make no difference in our lives. As we journey together in this venture called faith, we should all be transformed.
Are you up to the challenge of living life on the edge of eternity? Real faith is not for the faint of heart. We will not know where the journey will take us. We are committed to the trek. Will you join us?
—Christopher B. Harbin, pastor
