At least 30 area churches ready to join campaign with 'purpose'

More than 30 churches in the Toledo area will join 10,000 churches nationwide in a "40 Days of Purpose" campaign based on the bestseller The Purpose-Driven Life by the Rev. Rick Warren.

The Purpose-Driven Life, which addresses the question "What on Earth am I here for?," received the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association Book of the Year Award for two years in a row and has been on the New York Times' best-seller list for more than 80 weeks.

Mr. Warren will give a talk via satellite at 7 p.m. tomorrow, which can be seen locally at Epiphany Lutheran Church, 915 North Reynolds Rd.

The next "40 Days" campaign starts Jan. 29 and church registration is open through Nov. 12. Information and a list of participating area churches is available by phone, 1-800-633-8876, or online at www.purposedriven.com.
