Bowen's Heart

Many of you continue to ask about "baby Bowen" - the little boy Matt & Sarah Hammit (Matt is the lead singer of Sanctus Real) are expecting in about 6 weeks. Bowen has been diagnosed with a serious heart defect known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.  Bowen will need to have several heart surgeries the first couple years of his life, including one within the first five days.  Continue to pray for Matt, Sarah and their entire family.  In the midst of all the uncertainty and this difficult time, the Hammitt's are seeing God at work every day and are thankful for all of your support and prayers.

You can reach out to the family and follow their journey, by checking out a special blog Matt & Sarah have set up (here)

To hear our interview with Matt, including his update on Bowen, Sanctus Real "onesies" and his recent experience in Chic Fil A, check out the links below the picture.

You Were Made to Make a Difference - Max Lucado

Pastor and author Max Lucado joins us again this morning talking about the concept of "outliving your life" - doing things each and every day that will have an eternal impact that will continue to make a difference long after you are gone.  For some ideas from Max, click here.

This idea - "outliving your life" is the subject of an upcoming book from Max and here's what Max has to say:

These are difficult days in our world’s history. 1.75 billion people are desperately poor, natural disasters are gouging entire nations, and economic uncertainty still reigns across the globe. But you and I have been given an opportunity to make a big difference. What if we did? What if we rocked the world with hope? Infiltrated all corners with God’s love and life? We are created by a great God to do great works. He invites us to outlive our lives, not just in heaven, but here on earth. Let’s live our lives in such a way that the world will be glad we did.

And is if a book wasn't enough, this Fall Max will be hitting the road sharing from his heart and also sharing the stage with Michael W. Smith, Third Day and Toby Mac on The Make a Difference Tour 2010.  For more on the tour (tickets went on sale last week), go here.
