Good Stuff for 2011 from Graham

 lt is vital that we know what the Lord has called us to, so that we can upgrade
our anointing to match His intentionality The promises of God over us are
always personal, never just functional. He does not only give us a call and a
vocation in ministry He also gives us personal assurances of His Presence.
Righteousness to the Father is not about living in a way that is circumspect
and proper, wonderful as that is in the Spirit. It also means that He commits
us to a place where He will always do what is right for us. A Holy God moving
in righteousness means that He can be fully trusted at all times to do what is
right in every situation we find ourselves. He backs that revelation up with a
personal assurance that He watches over us and holds our hand in the tricky
places of our journey
We all are a part of His covenant to the earth in Jesus. He will commit resources to us as we seek to play our part in the establishing of the Good News.
It’s really good to know that in our normal lifestyle, we get to be a visual aid
for the world to find Jesus. I have always enjoyed gossiping the Gospel. Every
moment of every day someone is getting out of prison, being healed, being
set free and growing up in Christ. We are unstoppable in the goodness and
kindness of God.
It is a good time for us to think about glory; specifically to think about
the glory that the Father can receive from our actions and words. The Father
receives the most glory when the impossible happens—then everyone knows
that it must have been God. Safe, conservative lifestyles never seem to get on
the edge, out ofthe boat, or into risky situations. When we choose to walk by
faith, we take risks that are beyond us.
In this new season the prophetic is awakening in a more profound manner.
There are upgrades available where everyone may go to another level in terms
of hearing the voice of God. Wouldn’t you want to know what comes next in
your life and that of your family and friends? Your capacity to hear the Lord
will increase in this next season and you will learn to be present—future in your
relationship with the Lord.

1. a)What is the most difficult situation in your life at this time?
    b) Put yourself inside G0d’s heart. What would He want to be for you now?
2. If you are struggling with a particular sin habit, what element of righteous-ness do you need to displace it?
3, a)In what specific way are you a part of God’s covenant to the world?
    b)If you were a gift to humanity from God, what would you be?
4. What is the specific glory that you can bring to the Lord through your life
and ministry?
5. In what areas of your life are you playing it safe when you need to believe God
and risk something? What is the next level of faith that you need to exhibit?
6. What would you attempt next in your life if you knew it could not fail?
7. What new doors are opening for you in a) your life? b) your relationship
with God? c) your work/ ministry?
8. What do you see happening next in your spiritual community?
9. What upgrades are stacked up over your own life at this time? What needs
to happen to bring them down?
10.What new thing would you like to be involved with in this next season?
11. Regarding your relationship and walk with the Lord, what would you like
the Holy Spirit to proclaim over you?

Sobering Message

 1. The Christian church is becoming less theologically literate.What used to be basic, universally known truths about Christianity are now unknown mysteries to a large and growing share of Americans--especially young adults. For instance, Barna Group studies in 2010 showed that while most people regard Easter as a religious holiday, only a minority of adults associate Easter with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Other examples include the finding that few adults believe that their faith is meant to be the focal point of their life or to be integrated into every aspect of their existence. Further, a growing majority believe the Holy Spirit is a symbol of God's presence or power, but not a living entity. As the two younger generations (Busters and Mosaics) ascend to numerical and positional supremacy in churches across the nation, the data suggest that biblical literacy is likely to decline significantly. The theological free-for-all that is encroaching in Protestant churches nationwide suggests the coming decade will be a time of unparalleled theological diversity and inconsistency.
 2. Christians are becoming more ingrown and less outreach-oriented.
Despite technological advances that make communications instant and far-reaching, Christians are becoming more spiritually isolated from non-Christians than was true a decade ago. Examples of this tendency include the fact that less than one-third of born again Christians planned to invite anyone to join them at a church event during the Easter season; teenagers are less inclined to discuss Christianity with their friends than was true in the past; most of the people who become Christians these days do so in response to a personal crisis or the fear of death (particularly among older Americans); and most Americans are unimpressed with the contributions Christians and churches have made to society over the past few years. As young adults have children, the prospect of them seeking a Christian church is diminishing--especially given the absence of faith talk in their conversations with the people they most trust. With atheists becoming more strategic in championing their godless worldview, as well as the increased religious plurality driven by education and immigration, the increasing reticence of Christians to engage in faith-oriented conversations assumes heightened significance.
 3. Growing numbers of people are less interested in spiritual principles and more desirous of learning pragmatic solutions for life.
When asked what matters most, teenagers prioritize education, career development, friendships, and travel. Faith is significant to them, but it takes a back seat to life accomplishments and is not necessarily perceived to affect their ability to achieve their dreams. Among adults the areas of growing importance are lifestyle comfort, success, and personal achievements. Those dimensions have risen at the expense of investment in both faith and family. The turbo-charged pace of society leaves people with little time for reflection. The deeper thinking that occurs typically relates to economic concerns or relational pressures. Spiritual practices like contemplation, solitude, silence, and simplicity are rare. (It is ironic that more than four out of five adults claim to live a simple life.) Practical to a fault, Americans consider survival in the present to be much more significant than eternal security and spiritual possibilities. Because we continue to separate our spirituality from other dimensions of life through compartmentalization, a relatively superficial approach to faith has become a central means of optimizing our life experience.
 4. Among Christians, interest in participating in community action is escalating.
Largely driven by the passion and energy of young adults, Christians are more open to and more involved in community service activities than has been true in the recent past. While we remain more self-indulgent than self-sacrificing, the expanded focus on justice and service has struck a chord with many. However, despite the increased emphasis, churches run the risk of watching congregants’ engagement wane unless they embrace a strong spiritual basis for such service. Simply doing good works because it's the socially esteemed choice of the moment will not produce much staying power.
 To facilitate service as a long-term way of living and to provide people with the intrinsic joy of blessing others, churches have a window of opportunity to support such action with biblical perspective. And the more that churches and believers can be recognized as people doing good deeds out of genuine love and compassion, the more appealing the Christian life will be to those who are on the sidelines watching. Showing that community action as a viable alternative to government programs is another means of introducing the value of the Christian faith in society.
 5. The postmodern insistence on tolerance is winning over the Christian church.
Our biblical illiteracy and lack of spiritual confidence has caused Americans to avoid making discerning choices for fear of being labeled judgmental. The result is a Church that has become tolerant of a vast array of morally and spiritually dubious behaviors and philosophies. This increased leniency is made possible by the very limited accountability that occurs within the body of Christ. There are fewer and fewer issues that Christians believe churches should be dogmatic about. The idea of love has been redefined to mean the absence of conflict and confrontation, as if there are no moral absolutes that are worth fighting for. That may not be surprising in a Church in which a minority believes there are moral absolutes dictated by the scriptures.
 The challenge today is for Christian leaders to achieve the delicate balance between representing truth and acting in love. The challenge for every Christian in the U.S. is to know his/her faith well enough to understand which fights are worth fighting, and which stands are non-negotiable. There is a place for tolerance in Christianity; knowing when and where to draw the line appears to perplex a growing proportion of Christians in this age of tolerance.
 6. The influence of Christianity on culture and individual lives is largely invisible.
Christianity has arguably added more value to American culture than any other religion, philosophy, ideology or community. Yet, contemporary Americans are hard pressed to identify any specific value added. Partly due to the nature of today’s media, they have no problem identifying the faults of the churches and Christian people.
 In a period of history where image is reality, and life-changing decisions are made on the basis of such images, the Christian Church is in desperate need of a more positive and accessible image. The primary obstacle is not the substance of the principles on which Christianity is based, and therefore the solution is not solely providing an increase in preaching or public relations. The most influential aspect of Christianity in America is how believers do--or do not--implement their faith in public and private. American culture is driven by the snap judgments and decisions that people make amidst busy schedules and incomplete information. With little time or energy available for or devoted to research and reflection, it is people’s observations of the integration of a believer’s faith into how he/she responds to life’s opportunities and challenges that most substantially shape people’s impressions of and interest in Christianity. Jesus frequently spoke about the importance of the fruit that emerges from a Christian life; these days the pace of life and avalanche of competing ideas underscores the significance of visible spiritual fruit as a source of cultural influence.
 With the likelihood of an accelerating pace of life and increasingly incomplete cues being given to the population, Christian leaders would do well to revisit their criteria for "success" and the measures used to assess it. In a society in which choice is king, there are no absolutes, every individual is a free agent, we are taught to be self-reliant and independent, and Christianity is no longer the automatic, default faith of young adults, new ways of relating to Americans and exposing the heart and soul of the Christian faith are required. Although there were a few subgroups that were more likely than average to experience church-based accountability, there was not a single segment for which even one out of every five people said their church does anything to hold them accountable. The segments that were most likely to have some form of church-centered accountability were evangelicals (15 percent), adults living in the western states (10 percent), people who say they are conservative on social and political matters (9 percent), and Baby Busters, who are known to be a highly relational generation (8 percent). Amazingly, while 7 percent of Protestants claimed to have such accountability there was not a single Catholic adult surveyed who claimed to be held accountable by his/her church.

A Reminder Worship at the River Back to Second Sunday's November 14 at the Troutdale House Thanksgiving potluck at 5 PM and worship at 6 PM

Dear Friends:

We want to take a moment to thank you for not only supporting us with your friendships, love, and encouragement but also financially so we can be sent out by you to "hit the trail" seeking how to follow Holy Spirit in praise and worship upon God's land and gathered with His people to give honor and glory due His name.  Without your financial support we could not be "out there" among God's beautiful land and people groups who are seeking also.  

We just returned from Chelan Washington this weekend with Kelly Hahn to join others in pursuit of God's glory in worship.  Some long time friends will be joining us as well as new faces.

We had a ton of fun in Siletz with Theo, Beth and Steve Carlson.  Again it was exciting to see what God is doing through both Pastor Russell, Dan Russell's father and Dan Lundy who copastor a little Baptist Church in Siletz.  Our picture made it in The Winds of Praise newsletter and here are some pictures from the picnic and baptisms. 


Bless you and we look forward to this Sunday at the Troutdale House for Worship.

A Reminder Worship at the River Back to Second Sunday's November 14

  • A Reminder Worship at the River Back to Second Sunday's November 14 at the Troutdale House Thanksgiving potluck at 5 PM and worship at 6 PM
  • Thank you for praying for Korea.  I apologize as some of the pictures didn't come through so I've posted the final e-mail below.  After some 6 days of time adjustment (normally it just takes two or three... I must be getting old!)  Carlene, Kelly Hahn, and myself will leave Friday morning for Chelan Washington where we will join Elvin Gladney and Dan Hammer for a conference entitled Breathe on Me.  Hope to see some of you from that area. Information can be found here.
  • Although I celebrate testimonies of dramatic encounters with heaven, I rarely feel inclined to forward them.  Recently, a friend of mine sent me a you tube video of a young man and his wife from Argentina who simply began pursue God's heart  with just a simple guitar and began experiencing the sound of heaven singing.  Naturally many may feel skeptical, but supernaturally, this recording of simple and heartfelt worship together with the sounds of heaven has impacted me.

Thank you for your love and support.

Timothy and Rachel (far right 2nd and 3rd row) were young students when we first came to Korea in 2002. We would to gather in our apartment and Carlene would make her best Italian spaghetti with garlic smells that permeated the school. These young students would gather in a circle eat spaghetti (break from kimchee) and we would talk about listening to God...and we laughed a lot. We spoke words of encouragement and blessing over them. It has been 8 years since we have seen many of them and they all gathered together for a reunion last Saturday afternoon. Some of these students wrote out their  prophetic promises, put them in beautiful frames and hung them on the wall!

Korea 2010

What you see in this picture represents nearly everything the Lord has done the past 10 years. Timothy and Rachel (far right 2nd and 3rd row) were young students when we first came to Korea in 2002. We would to gather in our apartment and Carlene would make her best Italian spaghetti with garlic smells that permeated the school. These young students would gather in a circle eat spaghetti (break from kimchee) and we would talk about listening to God...and we laughed a lot. We spoke words of encouragement and blessing over them. It has been 8 years since we have seen many of them and they all gathered together for a reunion last Saturday afternoon. Some of these students wrote out their  prophetic promises, put them in beautiful frames and hung them on the wall!
That is why you see such a big smile on my face. This is one of my all-time favorite pictures because of the promise Carlene and I would be part of the training of this youth worship army in these last days.
It has been my privilege to encourage and strengthen thousands of believers in Korea and these students have passionately pursued Jesus and all he has for them
Thank you for praying and sharing with me and this joy!
I am finishing this tour with a 2 day  "Listening to God" seminar and returning to Portland Thursday...YEA!


(some missed the pics from last Mokpo email..see below)

Just finished 4 days in Mokpo, a city on the southwest coast of Korea and  centuries-old key origin of Korean song, dance, literature and art. The city is marked by what is called the Mokpo Song which celebrates despair, hopelessness, and pain.  Indeed, I toured several local museums depicting decades of Japanese occupation. Even their official dance costume and crown are black. (see below) But I believe this is all good news; because where there once was a people walking in darkness....a Light has come.

My sense is that people here have a prophetic destiny and promise as a resource center where there worship of all forms flourish.  Pastor Lee and his wife have a wonderful vision of 24 hour prayer and a conviction this city is a worship and art offering to the Lord.  I AGREE!

October Worship at the River

Dear Friends,

Yesterday, 10.  10.  10. (September 10, 2010) hundreds of people gathered in downtown Portland Oregon as well as in various churches, home groups, and other venues.  We gathered for three simple but profound reasons: Worship, Thanksgiving, and Repentance.  Many believers all over the world sense a distinctive change in the spiritual atmosphere as the Church is beginning to recognize how important we are to Jesus and to each other.

Recently the Washington Post published an article about a man at a Metro station in Washington DC who began to play the violin on a cold January morning.  He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes, and thousands of people, most of them on the way to work passed him by.  A few stopped to pay attention, most notably a three-year-old boy but the mother hurried him along.  In 45 minutes, the violinist collected $32 and when he finished playing no one noticed, no one applauded, neither was there any recognition.  No one knew this but the violinist was Joshua Bell one of the best musicians in the world and he played one of the most intricate pieces ever written with a violin worth $3.5 million.  You may watch the three minute video of this performance in the subway here.

The last six years we have gathered at a subway...errr,  in Troutdale once a month to worship.  It is our intent to recognize the beauty and the richness each believer brings as a worship offering to our meeting... we want to recognize the Joshua Bell's.  Last month at the conclusion of our meeting, Janice asked if she could share a poem she had written during the worship time:


That is a Joshua Bell performance.

We will see all of you Joshua Bell's this Wednesday a the River!

Citywide Prayer Event - Praying 4 Portland

Save the date! Sunday Morning 10.10.10

Portland is ready for REVIVAL!

Join with Portland area churches to pray for the city of Portland in unity!

Meet us at Pioneer Courthouse Square before 7:00 a.m.

"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2Chronicles 7:14 NKJV

THE PLAN: Each church may choose the location where they feel led to pray, or meet us at Pioneer Courthouse Square. We will meet at our designated locations by 6:50 am on Sunday morning. Promptly at 7:00 am, in unity, we will sing and pray over the city for one hour with a prayer text.

VISION: To see Portland area Christians join together to pray and seek God's face, to honor Him, repent of our sin, and usher in the long anticipated revival and end-times harvest.

HISTORY: Several members of Restoration Gateway Ministries went to Houston, Texas, in September of 2009, to give a conference at a Love in Action Church. The last day of their trip, they were invited to participate in Houston Loves Prayer, a citywide prayer event including over 4,000 churches and well over 10,000 Christians who circled the city and bathed it in prayer and song. The results were miraculous. Reports were received of spontaneous salvations, people leaving bars and getting on their knees in repentance before almighty God. One of the team members said, "I feel like the Lord is asking us to bring this concept to the northwest!"

If you or your church would like to participate, please email the planning committee at

Breathe on Me

Dear Friends,

For several years, we have all been sensing transition.  In fact I'm getting kind of tired of hearing that word.  Nevertheless, I believe there is a sense of God moving in a new way.  Nearly 30 years ago my wife and I moved to the Wenatchee Valley area where I taught high school and later At Bethesda Christian College.  This was the time and place when  the Holy Spirit began to teach me about worship.  I knew a lot about music but not so much about worship.  It is ironic that nearly a generation later we'll  return to this area with other leaders and passionate worshipers to celebrate Jesus!  I will join with Pastor Dan Hammer who is the state coordinator for the United States Apostolic Alliance with Dutch Sheets and Pastor Elven Gladney from Seattle for several days of worship and sharing.

Information about this gathering:

Breathe on Me

November 5 and 6, 2010, Lake Chelan, WA


God said prophesy to the breath that they may live.  We believe God is calling people to co-labor with him by speaking to those things which do not exist as though did.  For the past several years the wind has increased exponentially and the Holy Spirit is breathing new life to dead bones making us into a end time exceedingly great army.

Dear Praying Family and Friends, This morning I took Danielle and Carlene to the airport at 5:30 AM for a quick trip to the Pendleton Marine base to celebrate Matthew's deployment. You'll notice I said celebrate because I am practicing moving in the opposite spirit. Matthew will be part of a Marine platoon which will literally move into uncharted territory in central Afghanistan. Because he is an engineer, he is responsible for securing territory currently influenced by Taliban insurgents. Matt and his Marine platoon will be part of the leading edge. On his first tour, he was in Iraq and his experience was rich and fulfilling and it was his desire to complete his four-year career with the second deployment. We are apprehensive, sometimes fearful, filled with roller coaster emotions, and proud. When Matthew entered the Marines, it was a surprise to his mom and I. We were surprised as Matt was the least likely of all of our kids to step into the military. He was the kind of kid that didn't want to step on bugs! But he was convinced this was a part of his training in life, and we are honored to support him. On several occasions his fellow Marines, both officers and enlisted have recognized his work ethic, integrity, and just general ''wonderful guy to be around". Nevertheless we recognize the reality of what our armed forces are facing in Afghanistan, and we want to enlist you to pray over the next 5 to 7 months for Matthew. Yesterday evening I wrote Matthew a letter and I want to just quote part of it which includes a crafted prayer for him. Thank you for joining forces with us the next months as he will never be far from our hearts. Bless you, ...You may know that your name Matthew, means a Gift of the Lord. And You Are. In many ways, your presence and your personality and your way of seeing life are such a gift. I pray you will have patience, self control, wisdom and revelation to discern how you can influence and support your fellow warriors. You are a gift to them... and you are still a gift to us... but one that we cannot hold tightly for ourselves. So I release you to this assignment that you have trained for that you have look forward to and that you also face with reality. ....and you will never be far from our hearts. A Crafted Prayer for Matthew Dahlman Based on Psalm 121 Let Matthew lift his eyes to the hills... remind him Lord, where his real help comes from. It does not come from the strength of his own training or ability, but it comes from You, who knew him before there was time and fashioned him in his mother's womb. Even though these next days will be a test filled with long physical marches and minimal rest and dangerous assignments, Matthew can be assured that You have Your Hand on his every step and You never tire and never sleep. You promised Lord, to watch over Matthew every minute of this tour, and will be his shade and right hand during the days and his protector during the night. You will be Matthew's Night Watchman, and this promise will last more than these months days... this promise will last forever.

The Wild Garden

Dear Worshipers.....

Can you imagine stumbling upon a beautiful but wild garden.  It is not groomed professionally, but somehow the arrangement of the plants and flowers, ferns, and trees, enhance each other with the fragrance of the Creator.  Then (if you are like me) you might take notice...and just resume the journey.

This note is going out to...hopefully all who were at our gathering last week in Troutdale.....and others too. I spent several hours listening to the recording of our time together. As you know worship was unrehearsed, sometimes tentative, and yet always lovely.  Holy Spirit led us back to the theme of Abba 4 times during the meeting.  I am submitting this to you as an invitation to ask the Lord to perhaps re-visit the beauty of these moments....and stop and wonder at the beauty in the wild garden experienced in Paul’s admonition: “when you gather, each one brings....”

I would be encouraged to know you spent some time in the garden...and I’ll post this on the and you may comment.

Bless you,
