|June 26, 2013 New Issue of LinC: E-Waste and Christian Faith|
Apple's recent announcement of new iOS 7 operating system will motivate consumers to upgrade their smart phones. As a culture we are producing more and more electronic waste, resulting in health and environmental problems. LinC talks about e-waste and how Christians can serve God and love our neighbor by disposing of electronics properly. Click here to download.
Next week: On Independence Day Americans celebrate the freedoms won when we declared our independence 237 years ago. Christians also celebrate freedom. Through Christ, God freed us from sin and to live as God's people. Too often we lose sight of this freedom. LinC looks at how we claim the freedom to be and love ourselves and live as the people God created us to be.

Reentry: What I Learned on My Mission Trip, by Hank Hilliard, guides youth as they process their mission experience and discover ways to apply what they've learned to their day-to-day lives.
