Buying Shepherd’s Garden Bible Verse Tea: The Buyer’s Perspective

Jan 10th, 2012 Posted in Shepherd's Organic Bible Verse Tea | Comments Off on Buying Shepherd’s Garden Bible Verse Tea: The Buyer’s Perspective

By Ellen Pope

When I discovered that Lighthouse Trails was going to create tea by the name “Shepherd’s Bible Verse Tea,” I knew it was going to be special. Tea has been a part of so many wonderful memories: from times sharing with good friends, or sharing the Gospel with others, or just sitting quietly alone with Jesus. The combination of tea and scripture is, I think, a perfect fit.

Thanks to Lighthouse Trails, now we can use tea, read Scripture, and support a good cause all at the same time! Named for the One who created the tea, The Shepherd’s Garden offers a line of completely natural and organic teas, with each box directly contributing to the work of Lighthouse Trails.

It’s truly a rare thing to support a ministry when buying food and staples. More likely, our money is going to places you’d rather it not! Whenever we get the opportunity to purchase a product that goes toward helping spread the message of Jesus Christ, and feed yourself and family something wholesome at the same time, it’s a blessing. Shepherd’s Bible Verse Tea is one of those rare opportunities.

For a long time, Lighthouse Trails has been producing food for the body of Christ through their books and extensive research to expose the un-biblical roots of new age “Christianity” and meditation. Now, with the introduction of The Shepherd’s Garden products, readers have one more great way to share the Gospel and “feed” the body of Christ, as each verse directs its reader to the real point of “meditation:” Jesus Christ.

Don’t hesitate to try Shepherd’s Bible Verse Tea. Each one is especially tasty, marvelous in quality, completely natural, and full of the Light of God’s Word. Thanks to Lighthouse Trails for such a great product that honors God, and feeds the body in so many ways. I highly recommend Shepherd’s Bible Verse Tea.

We are happy to let you know that the Shepherd’s Tea has finally finished production and has arrived at the Lighthouse Trails facilities.

First of all, we want to let those who have already ordered the tea and have been waiting know that ALL backorders have shipped from Lighthouse Trails in Montana on Thursday, December 2nd.  We thank you for your patience during this time when several unexpected start-up production delays prolonged this process.

For those of you who are unaware of this new division of Lighthouse Trails,this summer we announced the beginning of The Shepherd’s Garden. In a follow up notice, we explained that this would be a “tent-making” effort to help support the ministry at Lighthouse Trails. The product line is blends of organic Bible Verse tea. Each bag of tea (in a box of 20) has a tag with a KJV Bible verse on it.

Thank you again for your patience; we hope that the Shepherd’s Tea will be a blessing to our Lighthouse Trails readers and will help point many people to the wonderful and enduring Word of God.

Sincerely,

The Staff and Editors at Lighthouse Trails Publishing

Letter to the Editor: Why is Lighthouse Trails Doing Shepherd’s Garden?

Aug 10th, 2010 Posted in company information, Publishing News | Comments Off on Letter to the Editor: Why is Lighthouse Trails Doing Shepherd’s Garden?

Yesterday [August 10, 2010], after we announced Lighthouse Trails’ new division, The Shepherd’s Garden, we received an email from a Lighthouse Trails reader asking why we were “getting into the tea business.” The reader said he was very concerned that we were going to become too commercialized  and thought perhaps we had sold so many books that we had more or less struck it rich and that we saw the tea business as a lucrative business venture.  He said that perhaps we have become too “popular and famous.” We thought there may be other LT readers who share his concerns. Thus, we would like to clarify our reasons for incorporating this new idea.

At Lighthouse Trails, we have paid a high price for continuing on in this ministry. Part of that difficulty has been financial challenges.  We have given away countless books in a missionary/evangelism sense to skeptics and critics, which erodes profits; in addition, publishing in general is expensive. We began the publishing company knowing absolutely nothing about publishing, but we met Ray Yungen, who had been carrying around an unpublished manuscript for two years (A Time of Departing). After we read it, God removed a veil from our eyes, and we knew that book had to be published. We came to learn that most Christian publishers would not publish material exposing the dangers of contemplative spirituality, thus we began Lighthouse Trails. Soon after, we came under a very intense attack from the enemy. It seemed that as soon as we started Lighthouse Trails, life changed for us dramatically. I remember thinking early on, if this is what life is going to be like from now on because of LT, I don’t want to do this. But my husband, Dave, and Ray Yungen, in their leadership and guidance, assured me that this is what we were supposed to be doing. In time, we came to understand that what we were suffering was minor compared to what martyrs in the past have suffered, and we, like all Christian believers, should count it a privilege to serve Him.

We want to assure Lighthouse Trails readers that we are not becoming commercialized, in the negative sense of the word. The idea of starting an organic Bible verse tea product line came to us several months ago, and after much thought and prayer, we felt that perhaps  this was a way to sustain ourselves and also help sustain Lighthouse Trails.

The tea is a pragmatic idea and also points people to the Word of God in a small way. It will also be a blessing and encouragement to those who enjoy it. We believe it does fit in with the Lighthouse Trails mission.  We believe this little tea company, while blessing others, will also help assure that Lighthouse Trails can remain active for years to come.
