Aslan Is On the Move!
Remember C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia? In Chapter 7, "A Day With the Beavers," Mr. Beaver says,
“They say Aslan is on the move—perhaps he has already landed,”
And now a very curious thing happened. None of the children knew who Aslan was any more than you do; but the moment the Beaver had spoken these words everyone felt quite different.... At the name of Aslan each one of the children felt something jump in its inside. Edmund felt a sensation of mysterious horror. Peter felt suddenly brave and adventurous. Susan felt as if some delicious smell or some delightful strain of music had just floated by her. And Lucy got the feeling you have when you wake up in the morning and realize that it is the beginning of the holidays or the beginning of summer.
We’re so excited to tell you that Aslan IS on the move!
We want you to know about the work being done by a 200+ year old organization, the American Bible Society. Scott and I recently attended a President's Gathering at ABS Headquarters, and we are so pumped!
ABS recently sold their building in New York City, near Lincoln Center, and leased space right across from Independence Hall in Philadelphia. By next year, they hope to open their Faith and Discovery Center at that strategic corner, where thousands from all parts of the world visit historic Philadelphia.
American Bible Society has launched a new Trauma Healing ministry, working with churches and ministries to train counselors and offer resources rooted in the Bible, the only ultimate answer to suffering and trauma.
ABS is also rolling out an ambitious online presence, based on huge amounts of data gathered from actual Internet searches of people curious about the Bible and God. This is called “lookinside.bible,” and offers all sorts of answers and resources, again, rooted in the Bible.
Make sure you check out “lookinside.bible,” and share it with anyone seeking answers for the issues that really concern them.
And add the American Bible Society to your prayer list. They are serving on the frontlines, offering the only hope for people in this lost world.
Aslan is indeed on the move!
