Here is a run down of the news topics for today:
- Faith-based groups are on the front lines of disaster recovery efforts in coordination with FEMA, and yet if a church were to be damaged, would they be eligible to apply for public assistance?
- Lifeway has released new research on the experience of pastor’s wives, and it provides an opportunity to examine our expectations of and responses to our church leaders’ families.
- Spelman College, an all-women, historically black college and university, will admit transgender female students who “consistently live and self-identify as women.” What is consistency in a culture with identity confusion and how can Christians speak into those conversations?
Then, Marian Jordan Ellis, Masters of Biblical Studies from Southwestern Theological Seminary and founder of Redeemed Girl Ministries, talks with us about her latest book, Stand: Rising Up Against Darkness, Temptation, and Persecution. Our enemy and his battle against us is real. Listen to this interview and find encouragement to stand amidst whatever trials and temptations you may be facing.
Find further encouragement through the testimony of Nabeel Qureshi, who is fighting cancer, found here.
