We have received some sad, breaking news on a story we covered last week. An undocumented immigrant teen, who is in custody of the American government, has petitioned the court for access to abortion and won. The ACLU rejoiced over the legal victory that resulted in the death of an unborn child. Stories like this should expand our view of what it means to be pro-life.
Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona announced he will be retiring from his position at the end of this term. Sen. Flake gave a pointed critique of the current state of civil discourse in this country. Read the speech here.
In the lead up to the International Day of prayer for the persecuted church, November 5, we’ve posted a special resources online and and we’re having a series of conversations on the topic.
Today our conversation is with Johnnie Moore, author of The Martyr’s Oath: Living for the Jesus They’re Willing to Die For.
Johnnie and a team of researchers traveled the globe to gather incredible stories of Christians enduring persecution. As Christians, we should be concerned when one part of the Body suffers. And as Americans, there is also a grave concern about the persecution of all religious minorities and destabilization around the world.
