By now you’ve probably heard about the Women’s March on Washington and its organizers’ decision to remove a pro-life woman’s group from partnership status. While the march’s purpose claims to spotlight gender inequality and unjust societal structures, a loud message was sent: Pro-life women are not welcome. The march’s pro-abortion identity shouldn’t come as a surprise. Planned Parenthood is a premier sponsor of the rally. Wedged between principles advocating gay rights and protesting police brutality, the march organizers state they... Read more

A song came on the radio about retrospection that caught my attention yesterday. It’s called “Dear Younger Me” by Mercy Me, a popular contemporary Christian band. The intriguing hook is the songwriter addresses himself with counsels of “if I knew then what I know now” and “what I would’ve changed if I had heard…” Before the song even ended I was thinking about what I would say in a letter to my wishy-washy younger self. The answer came quickly: don’t... Read more

“I’m not one to namedrop,” (she protested) but…I did receive my annual e-Christmas card from a British Lord and Parliamentarian today! David Lord Alton of Liverpool and I are both board members of Jubilee Campaign, USA, and he is another member of my Heroes Hall of Fame: The Defenders of Persecuted Christians. Lord Alton sent a charming “Jacquie Lawson” card. It features a winsomely beautiful country church evening Christmas service with choir singing. Choral music for the young singers in the scene... Read more

Last year the IMB reached the unprecedented record amount of $165.8 million from the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, the highest total in the 127 year history of the IMB. An inspiring year-end-giving campaign to be sure, but who exactly was Lottie Moon?... Read more

It’s Christmas time, so, of course the American Atheists have spread their cheery billboards across the country, urging that we all “celebrate an atheist Christmas” by skipping church. You can view the 2016 billboards and the organization’s press release on their website. The first billboard shows a text message exchange between two young women in which one laughs at the idea of going to church, saying “I don’t believe that stuff anymore.” She adds that her parents, obviously churchgoers, will “get over... Read more

You may have seen the powerful video of the Sudanese man reunited with his wife and children after four years. Everyone witnessing his homecoming is in tears already, and then the man, Dyan, drops to his knees on the floor of the Texas airport in thankfulness to God. It is beautiful, and what a reminder to us at Thanksgiving. A modern day pilgrim coming to America for freedom! I wish the video had told us from where in Sudan Dyan... Read more
