Charlene’s Project started in 2010 because a girl limited by so much refused to be defined by what she could not do. One decade later Charlene’s Project continues to work creating better futures for thousands of children around the world.
Dave Barr "Advent Day 5If the people continually failed to keep the covenant, did this mean all hope was lost? Among the cries of condemnation of the prophets against idolatry and injustice against the vulnerable, there are whispers of a day when a new covenant will come, when people will be given new hearts.“But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel after those days,” says the Lord. “I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. And they will not need to teach their neighbours, nor will they need to teach their relatives, saying, ‘You should know the Lord.’ For everyone, from the least to the greatest, will know me already,” says the Lord. “And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.””Jeremiah 31:33-35“Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.Ezekiel 36:25-27"YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQLSb5jogXoSpotify: open.spotify.com/episode/3vXRaFewiztQ7L1QxTobuK?si=8ac42d91a2044a99Apple: podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/advent-day-5-jeremiah-31-33-35-and-ezekiel-36-25-27/id1657477556?i=...(For an explanation of what these are all about, see the post on 1st December) ...

Dave Barr "For those interested, today's reading is one that spans millennia.From a man hired to curse a nation who catches a glimpse of a time centuries later when a way would be opened for all people, to a group of outsiders to the covenant travelling hundreds of miles across the desert to witness the birth of this promise. What will be our response?“This is the message of Balaam…the message of the man whose eyes see clearly, the message of one who hears the words of God,who has knowledge from the Most High…I see him, but not here and now.I perceive him, but far in the distant future.A star will rise from Jacob;a sceptre will emerge from Israel.”Numbers 24:15-17"YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mulRvGcr80Spotify: open.spotify.com/episode/5rBr0iVgfQJ7NWzFzvXwPw?si=54b5a3a1cd8f4301For an explanation of what these are, see the post on 1st December. ...
