Over the next 2 days I will be speaking seven times at the University of Illinois to everyone from campus Christian groups, gay groups, youth groups, city-wide pastors and a general session open to the public. They’ve packed my schedule from 12-9pm on Thursday and from 7am-9pm on Friday! Your prayers for strength (especially since I’m just getting over being pretty sick) and a clear mind are quite welcome. Let’s see the Lord continue to do some crazy stuff on this… Read more

I recently got a call from The Frank Pastore Show, America’s most listened to Christian radio program, asking if I would be a regular monthly guest. Of course I said yes! I will be live on the air tonight from 6:30-7:30pm CST. You can listen live here. I seriously love Frank, his point of view and how he ‘gets’ this bridge building work. I’m truly humbled to be a part of their show. I hope you get a chance to… Read more

Here is a link to Day 1 Day 2 is where things start to get a little dicey in regards to what I can say and what I can’t due to the private nature of a number of the meetings I was involved in. But I will give you all of the public highlights: The day started off by attending the African Delegation Breakfast. I got invited to this breakfast due to the coverage I have been giving to the… Read more

This is a picture of me and my favorite Christian artist in the world, Vicky Beeching, that was taken after a concert of hers I went to! And today, her EP (a three song teaser before the full album is dropped) releases today. You can get it on iTunes and it’s only $2.99! In my mind what sets Vicky apart from everyone else in the Christian music world is that she is a rocker-chick who loves the Lord, is extremely sensitive to the… Read more

This video is hilarious! Watch what TSA does while I’m trying to communicate some super deepness… How much do you want to bet I’m going to land on one of those “watch lists” at the airport from here on out  🙂 Yesterday’s services went great…I will post the audio from my sermon as soon as LaSalle St Church posts it in the next few days. I will continue the DC breakdown tomorrow, because I’m sick as a dog and just need to… Read more

I was in the airport recently and saw this sign. It felt awfully familiar to many of our bridge building efforts between the church and the gay community, so I expounded a little. What do you think? PS – I am preaching both services tomorrow (9 and 11am) at LaSalle St. Church in Chicago. I’ll be talking about pursuing peace with your enemies; basing it off of Prov 16:7 under the backdrop of Jonah 3:1-4:5. If you’re in or around Chicago,… Read more

From Orange County I flew back to Chicago for about 10 hours and headed with Brenda, my wife, to Washington, DC for some congressional and international diplomatic meetings, as well as the National Prayer Breakfast (NPB). Even writing that makes it sound super official, and it’s still kind of strange I was asked to be a part of it all. Quite an honor.  Many of the people and committees that we met with knew I am somewhat of a small-ish… Read more

Lumen 1.31 – Andrew Marin from mariners church on Vimeo. As I mentioned in the post yesterday, my most recent trip started in January and ended in the second week of February! I figured I would recount this adventure from Orange County to the White House in chronological order. Thus, the video above was my first stop, speaking at Mariners Church in Irvine, CA the last weekend on January. They asked me, “Andrew, we want you to give your 20 best… Read more

What is My One Sentence Bible? 2-11-10: What does ‘forgetting the Lord’ actually mean? It’s a haunting undertow in Scripture that I don’t want to find out. Hosea 2:13 Despite the pain; despite the hurtful actions of those closest to us; we must love others into reconciliation with us and God. Hosea 3:1 People without knowledge or understanding will come to ruin every time, says the Lord. Your excuses of ignorance don’t work in God’s eyes! Hosea 4:6,14 Much love…. Read more
