The man who led Bob Dylan to Christ says legendary singer is still walking with Jesus

Brooklyn-born Messianic Jew Al Kasha, 75, the double Oscar winning songwriter who in 1978 prayed with Bob Dylan at a Bible study in his Beverly Hills home to receive Christ, believes that Dylan never lost his faith despite many rumors to the contrary.
Bob Dylan made a well-publicized conversion to Christianity, went through a discipleship course at a Southern California Calvary Chapel, and produced three strongly Christian albums, “Slow Train Coming” – written in Kasha’s home — “Saved” and “Shot of Love”.

However, when a fourth “Christian” album failed to materialize in 1983, a rumor was circulated that Dylan had “renounced” his faith.
His new album, “Tempest,” is replete with Christian lyrics, as Kasha notes: “I am absolutely thrilled that Bob has shown through this new record that he has never lost God’s calling in life,” he said. “He’s never given up.
“I get upset when people think that he has because you don’t write all these songs just out there. It takes time to write them and they’re all about Christ so I’ve said this in the past — the media has hurt rather than helped him.”
Kasha went on to say, “I have known Dylan since 1960 when I was at Columbia as their youngest-ever record producer and they were going to drop him from the label as his first CD only sold 7,000 copies.
“I was 22 years old and they had all of these great artists like Rosemary Clooney, Guy Mitchell as well as Johnny Mathis and Tony Bennett, and when I heard this in a meeting, I stood up and, with my legs shaking, and told all of these veteran record producers, “We can’t drop him. He’s a great song writer and they finally agreed and now the rest is history.”

Denver Corruptocrats’ Chick-fil-A Smokescreen

Holier-than-thou liberals on the Denver City Council are waging war on Chick-fil-A in the name of tolerance and diversity. Now, let me tell you what the squawking is really all about: It’s a distraction, a feint, a mile-high smokescreen. Spiteful Democrats claim they are upholding progressive “Denver values” by delaying approval of an airport concession contract with the Christian-owned restaurant chain. But the politically correct storm over same-sex marriage (which Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy personally opposes) is convenient cover for the local government’s serial mismanagement, bloated spending, and shady contracting practices.

An example of how a person should not behave

( Here is a letter that was in my local paper. I don’t know where this person is with the Lord but this is not a way followers of Jesus should act. I also find it upsetting that this man has been divorced three times. Perhaps instead of pointing out to others their sins he should let the Holy Spirit deal with his sin.)

Dear Amy: I have a wonderful boyfriend who is kind, understanding and shares my values.
We work at a nonprofit medical center. Many of our dear friends and colleagues are LGBT.
The problem is that we’ve not even (officially) begun planning our wedding and I’m already begging to elope. You see, I have an uncle who borders on being a zealot.
At my niece’s baby shower he scolded my brother’s girlfriend for being a “sinner” for having a baby out of wedlock. At my cousin’s wedding while the bride was walking down the aisle he screamed, “And in my Bible it says it is Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!”
I’ve asked my mother if I could not invite him if I ever got married. She advised me to marry out of town.
The man is awful. He’s been divorced three times and is currently on marriage number four, but he is quick to judge everyone around him. Loudly.

( Ask Amy: Invite uncle to wedding, just tell him to behave )

Thousands say goodbye to Ty and Terri Schenzel, who wrapped their arms around Omaha

imageO

In life and — as fate would have it — in death, Ty and Terri Schenzel did everything together.

They went to school together, meeting in a California seminary in the 1980s. They moved to Omaha together, tying the knot and starting a family that Ty would joke was as simple as adding water: four kids, boom-boom-boom-boom, in six years. And they plunged into a ministry together, deciding to shake up their comfortable, busy, west Omaha megachurch life by committing themselves to north Omaha’s children.

Together, they started a place called Hope.
