Save Tenaganita Shelter!

The Shelter Cause Appeal Letter

The two-word affirmation *Kyrios Iesous* [Jesus is Lord] sounded pretty harmless at first hearing. But it has far-reaching ramifications. Not only does it express our
conviction that he is God and Saviour, but it also indicates our radical commitment to him. The dimensions of this commitment are intellectual (bringing our minds under
Christ's yoke), moral (accepting his standards and obeying his commands), vocational (spending our lives in his liberating service), social (seeking to penetrate society
with his values), political (refusing to idolize any human institution) and global (being jealous for the honour and glory of his name as we make disciples among all nations).

--From "The Contemporary Christian" (Leicester and Downers Grove: IVP, 1992), p. 98.
