Because the Gospel is Unique and Compelling


Recently I came across something unique in that it is both socially compelling and Kingdom of God oriented.  I say unique because much of what passes for “Christian Social Endeavor” can often be categorized as awareness raising activities informed by a “get into heaven after death” theology.

If you do believe that the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ accomplished much more than just your personal salvation and spiritual growth, then you understand that the mission of every Christian is serving God by playing an active role in the redemption and renewal of all things, in everything that we do.

Fly Fishing Collaborative is a group of people using their passion for fly fishing to partner with God as he brings new life to our broken world. By partnering with professional fly fishing outfitters and guides around the world FFC is helping to combat the global child sex trade, a horrific industry that affects over 2 million children annually.

The Fly Fishing Collaborative does this by offering professionally guided fly fishing trips and custom-made products. The money raised is given to orphanages and caregivers in different parts of the developing world. This money isn’t spent simply on advocacy, it goes towards creating sustainable livelihoods and financial resource used to rescue and prevent more children from being sold into the sex slave industry.

I want you to know that I don’t sell ads and I don’t make any money by writing this blog.  When I mention a product or a company, it’s because I believe in the people and the product they produce.

Maybe you love to fly fish?

Maybe you’d like to book a trip to a great spot with a great guide?

Maybe you’d like the money you spend to be donated righteous, ennobling endeavors?

Maybe Father’s day is coming and you don’t know what to get him?

Maybe you’d like to get your dad a handmade fly wallet?

Because FFC is local to PDX.

And it might get to you tomorrow, if you order before noon.

And even if it get’s there a day or two late,

You could show your dad the website video and tell him that you’re living out the Good News.

He’ll like the wallet because it’s unique.

He’ll love the idea because it’s compelling.

He’ll love you because he’s your dad.

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
