The Word of God—a Precious Treasure

by: Rev. Rebecca J. Brimmer, International President and CEO

When Tom and I were newly married, we went to visit his family in upstate New York. One day, I was sitting in the living room reading a home and garden magazine. At some point I laid the magazine down and heard my husband’s grandfather gasp. I looked up to see what the problem was, only to discover that I had inadvertently offended him. I had laid my magazine down on top of the Bible. I learned that Grandpa Lent would never put anything on top of the Bible, lay the Bible on the floor or toss the Bible casually. His respect for the Word of the Lord was so great that he treated it with utmost reverence and love. Grandpa Lent’s attitude didn’t stop there: he read the Word, talked about it and prayed God’s promises. His life was infused with godliness after years spent as a servant of the Lord. That brings up a question: How much do we love and treasure the Word of God?   Continue reading…

Understanding Jewish Symbols: The Hanukkiah

by: Nathan Williams, Deputy International Administration Director

Everyone has a favorite time of year to come and enjoy all the Land of Israel has to offer. While winter is perhaps not the preferred time to visit for many, it is the season in which the beautiful holiday of Hanukkah occurs. Known as the Festival of Lights, the Feast of Dedication and the season of miracles, it is a time when the country comes to life with twinkling lights. For a memorable outing during Hanukkah, go searching through the narrow streets of Jerusalem’s picturesque neighborhoods to find the most striking and elaborate Hanukkah menorahs (candelabras). This unique menorah is centrally rooted in Jewish tradition, and its meaningful symbolism is still very relevant in the lives of the Jewish people today.   Continue reading…

To our friends in the Jewish Community – in Pittsburgh, around the United States, and around the world…

Jeremiah 23:9  My heart within me is broken, all my bones shake. (JPS)

We are broken-hearted with you. There are no adequate words. You do not stand alone. Bible-believing Christians, and Bridges for Peace friends in specific know that this evil man has touched the apple of God’s eye.  We grieve with you, we stand with you, and we tell all that you are not alone.

Psalm 147:3,6  Who healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. The LORD upholdeth the humble; He bringeth the wicked down to the ground. (JPS)

To our fellow Bible-believing Christians, and to the Bridges for Peace family in specific.  Now more than ever, standing with the Jewish people is standing with God. Pure evil has acted and claimed to act as a Christian.  This is a shame for all of us who truly follow the Jewish Rabbi from Nazareth.  Join us in sending a message of love, support, and unity to the Jewish Community.  Reach out in love and compassion. Prayer is our most important action now. Personally reaching out to your Jewish friends and neighbors to just say “you are not alone, and you do not mourn alone,” is second.

If you feel God’s call to send a donation of sympathy, you may send it to Bridges for Peace USA – noted as “Pittsburgh gift.”

Jim Solberg, National Director, on behalf of all the Bridges for Peace USA family

We grieve with you, we stand with you, and we tell all that you are not alone.
