CS Commentary: Shamp is an emerging prophetic voice who should be closely watched. Personally, we are not that comfortable with those who go around labeling themselves ‘prophets,’ ‘apostles,’ or whatever, though it certainly does not mean that they are not those things. But, it is also not clear what Shamp means when he says, “The Lord said this…” or “The Lord said that” to me. We believe that he means what the Holy Spirit said to him while he was in prayer – not that the Lord actually appeared to him and spoke to him ‘face to face.’ Prophecies of the former type are open to interpretation, and therefore subject to misinterpretation and error.
Shamp has had some successful prophecies in the past, but as John Wimber used to say, be wary of those prophetic voices who have had success – the desire to remain relevant may push the soul into their prophecies in the future. That said, Shamp’s exhortation and commitment to pray and fast to see his words come to pass is indicative of someone with a good heart. But, the true fast that the Lord calls for from His people is typified by Isaiah 58 – every believer should seek God him or herself to determine whether, when and for how long they fast. We hope Shamp’s words come true.

The Emotional Incest Syndrome, Dr. Patricia Love
CS Commentary: We disagree with a few of these: Michelle Obama’s book (obviously), the Beastie Boys book, and can we all agree that Apple’s ear buds absolutely suck and constantly fall out of your ears? If you want some good ear buds, try Sony, especially their sport headsets with around your ear fittings.

CS Commentary: Layers is one of the best tips – and always dress lighter than needed with extra layers in your carry-on. You’ll usually work up a sweat getting to the airport and your gate on time with luggage in hand. In addition, if you’re taking more than carry-ons anywhere these days, you just don’t know how to pack or travel. There is absolutely no need for the risk of checking bags, especially on long, international flights.

Quotes Of The Month:
“We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” – Elie Wiesel, Holocaust Survivor
“Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must – at that moment – become the center of the universe.”― Elie Wiesel, The Night Trilogy: Night, Dawn, the Accident
