Unite Productions

I'm off to Toronto, Canada, today to speak at a conference called, Unite in Worship. I'll be speaking three times, on topics such as "Pure and Undefiled Worship," and "Seeing Eternity through the Eyes of the Outcast." You can see more about the workshops and other speakers Here. This is a great organization working in Canada to bring together pastors and worship leaders for the cause of unity. My aim is to inspire them to be actively involved in the cause of the orphan, the poor, sick and the widow. True worship, undefiled worship, is to care about the things God cares about most!

Thanks also to those of you who have Pre-ordered a copy of Red Letters. I'm very excited about how this book will be used.

Make Poverty History

The ONE Campaign

Dear Tom ,

Every morning 77 million children don't go to school, and not because they don't want to. 77 million children go without school because neither their families nor their governments have the resources to provide them with a basic education. Without education, these children are trapped in a vicious cycle of poverty, hunger, and AIDS.

Confronting this global challenge requires leadership and courage to take the bold action necessary to confront this crisis. Yesterday four of those leaders, Representatives Nita Lowey (D-NY) and Spencer Bachus (R-AL), Senators Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Gordon Smith (R-OR) have stepped up and introduced the Education for All Act to give tens of millions of children the education that will lift them out of poverty.
Now, as the bill is introduced, we must convince other Members of Congress to demonstrate the same courage and sign-on to this important piece of legislation.

Write a letter to your member of Congress asking them to co-sponsor the Education for All Act.
Education is a tool to transform the world, one student at a time. Education raises incomes, reduces infant mortality, slows the spread of HIV-AIDS, and saves lives. This is an investment that pays rich dividends.
The Education for All Act tackles the issues impeding access to education, from improving facilities and training teachers to eliminating school fees. This bill empowers developing countries to create and implement plans to put every child in school.

Will you write a letter to your member of Congress asking them to support the Education for All Act?

If anyone can make a difference on this issue, it's you. In the last week 108,044 people have joined ONE, making our collective voice ever louder. Now let's make ourselves be heard.
