Shalom to all our friends in the many corners of the globe,
May this indeed be a time of New Beginnings, as you will see in this letter, although the Biblical new year is Passover! While the next 10 days are days of heart searching for many religious Jews, we thank God that Yeshua is the Final Sacrifice, and pray that many will receive New Heats, as promised in Ezekiel the prophet, (36:26)
Shalom from scorching hot and damp Nahariya,
We have dripped our way through the last few weeks, and sometimes even the coolers could not keep up with the temperatures! We are longing for cool refreshing winds and rain after a long, hot and dry summer. However, it ha snot been too dry spiritually, and we have continued to experience the Lord's blessing in our midst.

There are forces at work within the Roman Catholic Church that are tired of being nice and ecumenical. The need for outward shows of brotherhood like the ECT (Evangelicals and Catholics Together) document is a thing of the past. They are beginning to show their true colors. The bait is no longer sweet and the pendulum has swung in the opposite direction.
The change in strategy has been made possible by a new popularity for things Catholic that began with the opening of Mel Gibson"s film "The Passion of the Christ." Best-selling Catholic books in Evangelical bookstores by Catholic cross-over authors such as Brennan Manning and Peter Kreeft gave Rome another big boost.
