Chilean Miners’ “Jesus” T-Shirts…

Did you notice the T-shirts worn by the 33 Chilean miners as they emerged from the ground? I spotted the name JESUS on the sleeve, and wondered about them. This was a logo for “The Jesus Film Project” (of Campus Crusade for Christ). Apparently the Chile branch of CCC provided a copy of the film (with one of the Gospels dramatically portrayed) to the men in the mine — and later designed and provided these t-shirts when they were requested!

But did you know that on the shirt all the miners chose to wear over their rescue jumpsuits, the front said “thank you, Lord” and the back side quoted Psalm 95:4

In his hand are the depths of the earth;
the heights of the mountains are his also.

CNN’s Religion Blog posted a great piece on the whole story of these shirts — you should read the whole thing. Praise God for this witness and His work of grace in that dark place!

Back to College? Beware…

One college student, with Christian convictions will not be allowed to continue her master’s program because of those convictions

“Eastern Michigan University expelled Julea Ward from itsmaster’s program in school counseling,” reports Dr Joseph Horton, “because Ms. Ward refused to undergo a reeducation program to silence her beliefs and to keep her convictions in check when counseling.”

“The flashpoint was Ms. Ward’s refusal to counsel homosexuals about relationships because such behaviors are not consistent with her religious beliefs. The dismissal of Ms. Ward’s lawsuit could have a chilling effect on religious freedom.”
