Joshua and Deborah: A Tale of Two Heroes

By Kathy DeGagne, BFP Staff Writer

True heroes are hard to come by nowadays. We often tend to elevate sports figures, media personalities or Hollywood stars to hero status, just because they’re beautiful, famous or particularly good at something. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a hero as “a person admired for achievements and noble qualities” and “one who shows great courage.” If we expand “noble qualities” to include humility, selflessness, compassion and godly wisdom, how would our heroes measure up?

In her book Women on the Front Lines, Michal Ann Goll issued a challenge to the Church: “…the Lord is calling us to be heroes. He is preparing us for a time soon to come when the world will cry out for leaders who are in touch with the heart and mind of God.”    Continue reading…

Lessons from Susa

By Cheryl Hauer, Vice President

On March 20–21, the Jewish community worldwide will enjoy one of the happiest festivals in their yearly cycle. Today, the holiday known as Purim (Feast of Esther) is celebrated by increasing numbers of Christians as well. It’s a time of frivolity, dressing in costumes, giving gifts of food to the needy and lots of boisterous and exuberant partying. The celebration, as commanded in the book of Esther, commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in Persia from a nearly successful plan to destroy them completely. Were it not for the courage of Mordechai and his niece, Queen Esther, the plot of evil Haman would have succeeded and thousands of Jewish people—some experts believe as much as 20% of the population of Persia at the time—would have been slaughtered.   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.
