Dying Out Loud tour welcomes Anne Steward- Sun., Oct. 19, Fellowship Center - The Stan Steward family traded the comforts of suburban southern California for the crowded cobblestone streets of Istanbul, Turkey. They explored some of the most dangerous reaches of Turkey's border regions of Turkey to pray with nomadic tribespeople.
But none of those adventures would compare to where God led them next: a journey of visions, revelations, and sorrow. A journey into stage-four colon cancer, and a journey that beckoned them to walk the shrouded path through the Valley of the Shadow of Death.
Yet even there they discovered peace, grace, and a new hope for the lost around them.
Also, I transcribed this from Stan’s video; I thought it could be used somewhere.
God whispered into our ears, “Live this dying out loud. No false courage, no false faith, no false hope. Good days out loud, bad days out loud.” Not just in front of the thousands of Muslims that we call our friends, but in front of the body of Christ, in front of those that we fellowship with, those that stand alongside us…. We’ve said it before, we feel blessed to carry this testing, this trial.
