Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire
Christian Living > Inspirational
Author: Jim Cymbala, Dean Merrill
Regularly $9.99, Today $2.99
As though blowing oxygen upon the dying embers of a fire, pastor Jim Cymbala revived a broken-down church in a rough-shod inner-city neighborhood through Christian faith. Twenty-five years ago, the Brooklyn Tabernacle could barely draw 26 people to a Sunday service. Nowadays the congregation is 6,000 strong–filled with converted prostitutes, pimps, drug addicts, and homeless people, as well as yuppies and wholesome families. Although he’s quick to give God credit for this miraculous success story, Cymbala admits that there may be a few human decisions that led to this Christian triumph.
Most significantly, he made sure his church community embraced everyone, from all walks of life–no matter how distasteful or foreign. “Christians often hesitate to reach out to those who are different,” according to Cymbala. “They want God to clean the fish before they catch them. If someone’s gold ring is attached to an unusual body part, if the person doesn’t smell the best or the skin color is not the same, Christians tend to hesitate.”
