Operation Starting Line...

Another great element of CCDA for me, was getting to know leaders of other great collaborative initiatives underway elsewhere in the country which could also be applicable here in Indy & Indiana. One such leader was Paul Krueger, Navigators, who is working with Prison Fellowship and many other nationally-known evangelical ministries, toward a very collaborative approach to jail issues.

While our time together was so condensed, at least Paul was able to share a bit about "Operation Starting Line". Of course the name itself got my attention, as it probably would for every "Driven Christian in the Racing Capital of the World". But OPL isn't about the Indy 500, it's about a 'race against crime'... and not unlike the collaborative "Breaking Out of the Jail Cycle" efforts we've advocated for, locally. [And word on the street is that the upcoming Governor's Conference on Volunteerism & Service (April 10-11, 2006), which we're participating in, will include a track for jail-related issues.]

Perhaps OPL is a great fit and we need to get involved.... [continued at OperationStartingLine.net]

Transformation Documentary Premiere

Dear Friends,

You are invited to a premiere of the new transformation documentary An Unconventional War from our friends at the Sentinel Group. George Otis Jr. has just finished what has been described as one of the most powerful transformation documentaries to date. Here is an overview of the film.

For nearly two decades in Uganda the LRA leader Joseph Kony abducted over 25,000 children and turned them into sex slaves and killing machines. The resulting carnage has displaced 80 percent of the region’s population. This powerful new documentary: An Unconventional War chronicles how fervent prayer and unique church-state collaboration are finally taming one of history’s most brutal insurgencies. Heroes abound with real life scenes reminiscent of The Lord of the Rings.
