One With Them: 1 Corinthians 12:26

You may have seen the news that, just last Sunday, a suicide bomber walked into a church in Indonesia, triggering a blast that injured at least 30 people.

Such is the painful reality for persecuted Christians — they are targeted even as they worship.

That’s why I keep wearing my wristband and I hope you are too.

In addition to wearing a wristband, your prayers for brothers and sisters in these closed nations are critical.

Let us know if you will join millions of believers for a special time of corporate prayer on November 13th, The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.

Visit and go to the International Day of Prayer page to download materials that will inspire you, your friends and church to intercede on behalf of persecuted Christians. Free resources include a pastor’s guide and six weeks of lessons, testimonies, bulletin inserts, music and powerful videos.

It is time to pray.

Yours for Remembering the Persecuted,

Carl Moeller

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
