Jim RobinsonAlcohol and drugs had taken nearly everything from Jim Robinson. He had no job, no car and no home. He was a suicidal drunk and addict, and nearly died. But in 1989, this lost man, in one dark and desperate moment, turned to find that his Creator had been there all along, in the middle of his messy life. Utilizing his gifts as a professional counsellor, speaker, author, and songwriter, Jim founded ProdigalSong Ministries in 2000, which has evolved into a vibrant mission that brings a testimony of hope and healing and provides professional resources that address the issues of addiction and recovery, obsessive/compulsive behaviours, mood disorders, family healing, and related life issues.
Do you see anything wrong with an "all-black" school?(carried over from last week) We've got Jewish schools, Christian schools, and the Toronto board already has schools for First Nations students and an alternative high school for gay and lesbian teens.

If you're not happy with the direction your church is heading, do you stop giving?(carried over from last week)Leaving the church might be a step you eventually take down the road, but in the mean time, what if you don't like what the Pastor is preaching? What if you're not on board with the new building campaign? What if the denomination as a whole is making decisions you feel goes directly against God's Word? Would you ever consider not tithing? Is that appropriate? Or should you continue to give, and trust God to do with it as He likes? Have you ever actually protested with your offering for a period of time?

This Week: "Should I marry a woman in order to rescue her and her children from a life of extreme poverty?"

Do you need to be "in love" in order to get married? Is this any different than adopting a child from an orphanage in Rwanda or Romania?
