what they are owed within a relatively short time span. In addition, we've acquired a 15-year guaranteed lease on the core campus (Crystal Cathedral, Welcoming Center, Arboretum, Tower of Hope, Memorial Gardens, and more than enough parking). We've also been guaranteed the opportunity to buy it back in four years at a very low cost, which I foresee us doing through refinancing at that time. In four years or less, we will have reduced our entire debt (secured and unsecured) by 84% since my ministry leadership began. None of this would have been possible without you! And, if you haven’t yet participated in our Rebuild Phase Two online auction, it’s NEVER too late! (Go to www.hourofpower.org/auction.) The funds raised through this phase will continue to help us pay our vendors what is owed to them. The more we raise, the sooner we will have our debt to them paid in full! Thank you for being one of the solid rocks that Jesus is using to rebuild His church! I am eternally grateful. “Thank you, Jesus, for being the Word of my life! I praise You, Lord! Amen.”

esus did, indeed, build His church, which includes all the believing Christians past, present, and future around the world. One part of His Church is this church, the

Crystal Cathedral, which we came very close to losing recently. But, God used YOU to help save it. And now, God is using YOU to help rebuild His worldwide Crystal Cathedral Ministries on a solid foundation. How can I thank you for all your help? The recent Rebuild Campaign Phase One raised nearly $2 million! And, at the time of this writing, we have no idea how much

Phase Two will raise. However, I do know without one shred of doubt…thanks to YOU…that God wants the beautiful Crystal Cathedral and garden grounds to continue to be the home for His positive message of hope and love and forgiveness through the Hour of Power! Every bit of revenue raised has been essential to our ability to successfully negotiate a win-win fiscal arrangement whereby we are able to pay our vendors 100% of Rebuild Thank-You cont. on page 4

he power of words! I was fortunate to be raised by Robert Schuller who would spend time at every meal discussing words and how important it was to choose our words wisely. My husband, Jim and I tried to follow his lead when we raised our sons. Imagine my surprise when my son Christopher was five years old. Like my other sons, he went to a private Christian school. Both of Jim and I felt it was worth every penny when one day this young boy—who usually spoke in terms of truck, plane, and car sounds—burst forth from the back seat of the car: “For God so loved the world that He sent His one and only begotten Son that whosoever believes He made you! in Him should not perish but have everlasting life!” (John 3:16). He loves you! Jim and I looked at each other in astonishment. This May, we watched with pride as Christopher walked in cap and gown to receive his Masters in Divinity degree. Surely we should have had a clue that morning in the car that God had a call on Christopher’s life to proclaim the Word! These words in John were Christ’s response to Nicodemus who had paid Jesus a midnight visit. These words were proclaimed by The Word! John opens his book of the Bible with an amazing description of Jesus, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made” Christopher with his grandma Coleman. (John 1:1-3) . This claim means that Jesus is the image of God. He was with God from the beginning. He is the Creator. He made you! He loves you! He breathes His life, His love into your life. So, I challenge you, today, to use the power of your words to praise the Word! Worship the Word today with your words! Say it today and every day… “Thank you, Jesus, for being the Word of my life! I praise You, Lord! Amen.”

Sheila Schuller Coleman

By Dr. Robert H. Schuller One of the greatest lessons I’ve ever learned came straight from the mouth of my Savior Jesus when He said, in Matthew 6:15, “Your heavenly Father will forgive you if you forgive those who sin against you.” Forgiveness is non-judgmental love. That’s the only real love. Most people love judgmentally: “I’ll love you if you agree with me.” “I’ll love you if you’ll start living a cleaner life.” “If you don’t meet my expectations, I will not love you.” Even if we did not believe in God, He still loves us non-judgmentally. There are no “ifs” in God’s love for you and me! In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said that if we love only the people that agree with us, what is so great about that? Even scoundrels and crooks love their fellow crooks. Jesus went on to say that genuine love is shown when God allows the sun to shine on the just and the unjust, and His rain falls on the good as well as the evil. That may seem unjust to you, but let me assure you this concept is filled with mercy. And there will always be a tension between justice and mercy! Jesus despises our transgressions but loves us anyway…and always. When we err, we are forgiven even before we think to ask. However, we are able to be conscious of His forgiveness only by forgiving others: “Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.” If you are having difficulty forgiving someone because “what they did is just not right,” let me encourage you to listen to what Jesus says, and forgive as you have been forgiven.
