More Than a Negative...Written by Terry Dashner
Continued from page 1
Faith Fellowship Church has just completed a week of community missions that has had every member reaching beyond themselves to touch heart of our law enforcement communities. We believe finances invested, foods prepared, sweat and labors expended, continual prayers offered up, building and tearing down of equipment, sleep lost, planning, mistakes, and love displayed by all of this motion was worth it. Why? Because Jesus did much more than this when He lived among men, suffered at hands of same men, was tortured and crucified on a cross by men, and did all of this willingly because He loved mankind.
Jesus was raised from dead by Holy Spirit. He is very much alive today and making intercession for you and me. Because of that, I want to tell world, “Don’t just try and live life. Receive Jesus. He will lift you above negative, emptiness and fill you with abundant life. With love of Jesus and power of His Spirit living in you, it’s very unlikely that you will remain in a “rocking chair,” watching other brothers and sisters minister in faith. I believe you will catch ablaze in God’s consuming Fire. It’s a good thing to “burn out.” I dare you to try.
Keep faith. Stay course. Jesus is coming soon. So until He does, be busy about Father’s business.

Best Way to Improve Your Music Journalist RelationshipWritten by Bard Marc
Continued from page 1
I find it intriguing. Do you really WANT to alienate journalists?
I publish this newsletter and Celtic MP3s Music Magazine, and I have to steer clear of Flash websites, because they cause problems. I skip them. NO Band is so good that I'm willing to put up with that crap!
Not to mention Flash websites hinder my ability to review band. You see, when I start researching a band, I go to their website, copy and paste some info about band, finish my comments, and voila! There is NO copy and pasting available with Flash. Again, you've cut your opportunities for getting decent reviews in half.
I know you want to take advantage of cool technology available, but technology is useless unless it is used with intelligence. So seriously folks, lay off Flash websites!
