Why I March for Life

by Alexei Laushkin Every year since I’ve been in DC, I have made it a point to join the March for Life. I m pro-life, because I believe that every life ought to be brought into this world. I don’t believe that Christians can or should end a developing life. For those outside of faith, I would like to see incentives and measures that would help facilitate the life of a child. I know at times there are difficult circumstances… Read more

Genesis 9: The Forgotten Covenant

by Howard Snyder Ignoring Genesis 9 in covenant theology is like ignoring John 1 in Jesus theology. Skipping God’s earth covenant in soteriology is like skipping the incarnation in Christology. Yet as I noted in my January 3 blog, “14 Favorites Ways to Twist the Gospel,” covenant theology usually bypasses the Genesis 9 earth covenant and begins with Abraham. Strange, since the first explicit biblical covenant is in Genesis 9, where God establishes his “covenant between me and the earth”… Read more

Advent in Malawi

We were in Malawi. It was a warm day in June when we arrived in Fombe village in the Shire river valley. Though this was a river valley there was no running waters or tributaries in this village. We approached a home where a mother of four was busy preparing her family’s daily meal. She cooked over a large open air fire just to the right of her home. We approached and setup a meeting spot to conduct our interview…. Read more

Ohio’s Clean Energy Policy, Good for Consumers, Protects Human Life

By Steve Fortenberry and David Moyar Clergy members and CEOs don’t always speak in a unified voice. But no one should remain silent about the misguided legislative attacks against Ohio’s clean energy policies – attacks that ultimately threaten both the health of our children and the health of our economy. In his ongoing attempts to rollback Ohio’s Energy Efficiency and Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard, state Sen. Bill Seitz of Cincinnati has called those who want to preserve the policies “envirosocialists,”… Read more

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

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. Seitz, SB 58, would make our air dirtier in the process.  This corporate-welfare bill must be stopped. The good laws Sen. Seitz wants to trash, SB… Read more

Waiting for Change

by Alexei Laushkin Today, if you hear my voice do not harden your hearts, as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the desert (Hebrews 3:7-8) You meet many a Christian today who aspire to fullness of life in God, but they know something is a miss. Many earnest Christians hoping to see a change that never comes. If only I could do x better he or she says then I could be a better Christian. … Read more

Fire On the Mountain

by Dr. Andy Bannister The path through the trees was narrow and overgrown, meandering its way through birch, oak and elm, climbing gently as it wound its way up from the valley. A few minutes walking brought me to the ancient moss-laden wall that surrounded the forest, from which a wooden gate led out on the hillside. From there the track quickly steepened as it wound sinuously up toward the mountaintop. I paused every so often to catch my breath, turning to watch… Read more

A Fine Finch Story

by Celia Kiewit It was springtime 2012, and a pair of finches built a fine nest on my patio in, of all places, a fake plastic tree. They had been sitting on four eggs for the past month. Knowing they were about to hatch, I stayed away as much as possible and prayed all would be well with the little feathered family. Apparently one night the wind blew hard enough to knock the tree over. I didn’t discover this until… 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… Read more
