Our 2023 year has been running fast. At Capitol Commission Louisiana/Grace Adventures our ministry does not have a political agenda. We focus on building relationships with leaders on both sides of the aisle to bring gospel hope and spiritual strength. We desire to see a movement of people centered on Jesus and seek to equip leaders to put Him first in every aspect of their lives. It is “For Such a Time as This” that we are Betting the Farm on God.
In Louisiana we are in the midst of a rough and tumble election season which involves walking with what will be — winners and losers. There is ministry on each side of the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. I have immense respect for the men and women who put themselves out there for public office in today’s climate. Opportunities abound from speaking opportunities to preaching, to one-on-one, to being asked to pray at many community events during this political season.
Officers’ Christian Fellowship:
From June 30-July 7, it was my joy to teach military officers and families about the person of Jesus Christ at Officers’ Christian Fellowship’s White Sulphur Springs (WSS) Conference Center in Pennsylvania. OCF is an extraordinary organization that builds Christian military leaders, families, fellowships … for a lifetime. They meet many of our nation’s choice leaders at the intersection of faith, family and vocation. Military officers were present from West Point, the Naval Academy, Pentagon, and across the country while some were returning from overseas assignments or retired from years of service.
I ponder how much I truly owe these folks. What they are willing to do and what their families are willing to endure and risk so we can enjoy freedom is beyond what I can imagine. Much of what they do can’t and won’t be publicized and they will never be thanked sufficiently. Their mission is essential, and I salute them.
