CAROL STREAM, Ill., Sept. 12, 2011 /Christian Newswire
/ -- The September/October issue of the Kyria digital magazine, available today, helps women find and use the passions God has placed within them to serve others.
Editor Ginger Kolbaba says, "This month's issue of the Kyria digizine is on the spiritual disciplines of service and outreach--the practice of offering time, resources, influence and expertise for the care of others. We want this issue to help women see that service and outreach are part of every believer's calling--no matter where you live or what you do, God still calls you to serve him by serving others. This issue will also help you understand and practice real service, and what to do when you just don't enjoy serving others." Featured is an interview with Kay Warren, the wife of Pastor Rick Warren, who says that service is being in partnership with the God of the universe. Kay says, "Jesus gets to the heart of service, to the no-excuses level in our souls. We don't seem to get that the best way to demonstrate our love for Jesus is to love other people."
A portion of the Kyria digital magazine is free access and open to everyone. The September/October issue features the following articles:
