Set The Unborn Free From Pollution’s Tyranny: Oppose SB 58

Mercury

by Rev. Steve Fortenberry There’s an important debate going on right now in Ohio’s legislature about whether to gut some good laws so that a couple of utilities can get more than their fair share of our state’s economic pie.  That’s bad enough.  But these efforts, as contained in a bill introduced by Sen.

Apparently one night the wind blew hard enough to knock the tree over. I didn’t discover this until noon the next day. Four little guys had been dumped out on the lawn and … [Read more...]

Young Evangelicals on Climate Change

You won't hear young evangelicals talk about polar bears when they talk about climate change. You won't hear them talk about cool trends, big government, or anything else like that. Instead you'll hear them talk about they need for Christians to see these issues through a biblical lens. Check out this video featuring Collin Whitsett (it’s 12 of 12 on the playlist), who currently is traveling the world but is based out of Hastings, Nebraska, is an alum of the environmental studies program … [Read more...]
