Hope in Sanford: The Untold Story

Behind the scenes of the Trayvon Martin case—and the inspiring account of reconciliation no one’s telling

Trayvon Martin was killed 2.3 miles from my office in a newer part of Sanford, Fla. The exact street where he was shot is less than a mile from a similar gated townhouse community where my younger son lives.

So to me, this is extremely personal. As we put together this special issue, I’ve been in a whirlwind of meetings and diplomacy unlike anything I’ve ever experienced during my journalism career, stretching back to high school. And as with most stories, there is a behind-the-scenes account that’s just as interesting. This is my attempt to tell that personal side of the story, even as Charisma deals with the spiritual, cultural and political effects of this situation.

I’ve known for years Sanford was a racially divided community, and I’ve worked in my own way to bring healing and reconciliation—including getting to know black pastors, attending their churches and serving on the board of a small ministry to the homeless in the center of this predominantly black area. I’ve helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for many of these ministries. I’ve even been involved in Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebrations and lobbied to get a street named after the slain civil rights leader. read more

Pentecost Sunday

Shouldn't Pentecostals Celebrate Pentecost Sunday?

Watch 'Jim Bakker Show' to Learn Prophecy Behind 'The Harbinger'

Jim Bakker believes The Harbinger is one of the most important books he's ever read because of its prophetic insights. The book highlights how God dealt with Israel when the people rejected Him, and how the same warnings in Isaiah 9:10 still apply today.

Bakker is featuring Cahn on his national television show all this week. He invited us on the show at their new facility called Morningside outside Branson, Mo. read more


Thanking God for the Legacy of Robert Walker

Robert Walker was born 100 years ago today, April 30. He was my friend and mentor. I consider him a great man and this is my way to honor his memory and to thank God for his life.

Robert Walker founded Christian Bookseller magazine, Creation House, Christian Life Missions, and Christian Life magazine, which merged with Charisma in 1987. I have continued his publishing legacy. I wrote articles in Charisma and Christian Retailing, and have arranged for a reception in his honor as part of the regular Christian Life Missions board meeting. I hope you'll read on about this great man who inspired so many. read more
