I'm taking a break from the hot debate of the last few days to share something I think is wonderful. Many of you know my good friend, Dwayna Litz. She is an amazing woman--responsible for pioneering multiple street ministries in Venice Beach, CA, Boulder, CO and now New York, NY. Dwayna has been a great source of encouragement to me; her love for Jesus made me rethink my love for Him.

I always knew she could sing . . . but I'd never had the chance to actually hear her.

Today, Kevin and I dropped a Dwayna Litz CD into our computer and sat there--stunned--as this incredible voice filled our home.

I thought I'd share the two songs we heard with you. . . the second one, Prayin' You Back Home is one that Dwayna wrote (and I love it). I've been singing these all day.

One more thing . . . I'd sincerely like to thank everyone who stopped by my blog in recent weeks. Blog hits are now into the thousands, and it's great to know people care. Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to stop by Walter Martin Ministries. We appreciate each and every one of you.

I've checked out Dwayna's blog, as you suggest. I was surprised to discover a posting in which Dwayna claims that Lent is a pagan celebration. Waltermartin.org counts Dwayna as a "Walter Martin columnist" and publishes that anti-Lent entry on its site here. I have responded to Dwayna and John MacArthur (on whose work she relies) here on the blog to which I am a contributor, Right Reason.

Thank you Mr. Beckwith, that is interesting.

I would like to apologize to you. Some days ago, I mentioned on this blog that some people with PhD’s were arrogant. It was rude of me and I am sorry.

Jill,

I wanted to thank you for this nice post and thank others for the nice emails which have been sent to me personally due to this post. I praise the Lord for giving me a voice to give back to Him.

Your friend,
Dwayna

Francis,

If you would like to know more about Lent from the perspective of a former Catholic priest, please go to my blog (sorry you will need to paste it):

Thanks so much for encouraging me to study more about Lent. I will still stand by the article I wrote, however, your comment here made me want to learn more about Lent, and I thank God for it because He has used it to help me grow.

In the pleasure of measuring all things according to the Bible,

Dwayna
