Team Kabul Hope

What is Kabul Hope? It is a group of Afghan Christians seeking a place to call home and to live in peace. Along with our weekly lessons learning about the Prince of Peace, a group of friends are actively seeking immigration paths for our Afghan friends. 

Our Afghan members are in both Pakistan and Afghanistan. In both countries, there is severe need. Financial support is needed to keep them going and to move them to the next step in their journey to a place to call home. Follow our weekly updates for the latest news.

The Appeal of the Gospel

The Appeal of the Gospel

What makes a person decide to become a Christian, especially in a country where they face persecution. Some Sunday thoughts on the appeal of the Gospel.

Jesus: A Person, Not A Gig

Jesus: A Person, Not A Gig

Often the church is focused on numbers and programs. But Christianity is about Jesus, and Jesus is a person, not a gig. Some Sunday thoughts.

Thankfulness vs Gratitude

Thankfulness vs Gratitude

We are wrapping up a holiday focused on thankfulness. But do we really understand what it means. Some Sunday thoughts.

The Unexpected Journey: Where will your journey end?

The Unexpected Journey: Where will your journey end?

We like to make plans and be certain of the results, to know what is coming around the corner. Some Sunday thoughts.

Blocked Blessings

Blocked Blessings

There are many promises from the Lord in Scripture that he will bless his people. But what happens when we block those blessings? Some Sunday thoughts.

Missed Opportunities

Missed Opportunities

Sometimes we complain that our life isn’t the way that we want, but is it the way it is because we’ve missed opportunities for something else? Some Sunday thoughts.

The Blessing in Associations

The Blessing in Associations

You can do good work on your own, but for great work, you need a team. Continuing the conversation on the importance and impact of associations. Some Sunday thoughts.

The Danger of Associations

The Danger of Associations

One of the youth pastors at my church used to say, “You are who you run with.” A succinct way of warning against the dangers of associations. Who are we running with? Some Sunday thoughts.

When Hope is Deferred

When Hope is Deferred

There is a Proverb which states “hope deferred makes the heart sick.” (Proverbs 13 12) This exactly describes the situation of Afghan refugees Some Sunday thoughts on the two year anniversary of the NATO withdrawal from Afghanistan.

The Problem with Christian Nihilism

The Problem with Christian Nihilism

There is a lot of discussion today about the dangers of Christian nationalism. But I think the real problem is Christian nihilism. What is it? Some Sunday thoughts.

Does anyone want what you have?

Does anyone want what you have?

The Great Commission is to “go and make disciples of all nations.” (Matthew 28:18-20). This is a foundational belief of the evangelical church. We are to spread the Good News. But what if someone doesn’t want to hear your “Good News” or what you think they should have? Is the problem with them? Some Sunday thoughts.

A Warning: God Shows No Partiality

A Warning: God Shows No Partiality

It is written in Deuteronomy 10:17, ““For the LORD your God is the God of gods and Lord of lords. He is the great God, the mighty and awesome God, who shows no partiality and cannot be bribed.” So why do so many Christians act like he does? Some Sunday thoughts.

Hoping in the Lord

Hoping in the Lord

Sometimes we read passages in the Bible and simply gloss over the words. What did the words really mean to the writer and what do they mean to you when you’re looking for hope. Sunday thoughts on Psalm 31.

Is it “peace” or cowardice?

Is it “peace” or cowardice?

There is a lot of wrong done, and very little of it is hidden. Often it is brazen and out in the open. So why does it continue? Because very few people are willing to say or do something about it. It is far more comfortable to be a coward.

The Destruction of Detachment

The Destruction of Detachment

What happens when we just don’t care? Much of the situation in Afghanistan can be explained by the detachment of those who should care.
