this week we talk to Mike Rusch, husband, father, follower, and one of the co-founder of the Cobblestone Project, a community movement in northwest Arkansas.

from the Cobblestone website:

The Cobblestone Project was founded in April 2008 by families who were committed to stepping forward to make a meaningful difference in their community. The motivation of this movement to action was the belief that every person has a unique and immeasurable value by virtue of their shared human story. These families believe that this human story is defined by a movement towards the restoration of the image that all people were created in. They believe that every human heart deserves dignity, respect and the opportunity to fully realize their beauty.

When a community of people engages together in bringing to light those whose image can not fully be achieved, true change begins to take place.

The dream of the Cobblestone Project is to work towards

“A Community Without Need”

Helping a friend in need

Got a call from Brad Vanderburg tonight and he informed me that they’ve just about settled on a new lead singer for their band, Shatter Me.

The young man, Donavon, just called Brad to inform him that one of his dear friends, Taylor was in a bad car accident over the weekend and is now in the hospital with severe brain injury.

Brad said things don’t look good for Taylor.

The Vanderburg’s are hoping to pool some money together to help Taylor’s family in this time of crisis. If you’re interested in helping, please click the button below and we’ll get the funds to the Vanderburgs ASAP. (As a note, the donation will likely show Refugee on the PayPal page)

UPDATE :: Talked to Brad this morning, he said Taylor is still in a coma and there’s no evidence of change. He will be stopping by the hospital later this morning to see him and meet with the family.

Thanks in advance!
