The influence of postmodern thought has left its mark on twenty-first century education, introducing concepts such as pluralism, “tolerance,” and the rejection of absolute truth. Today’s curriculae are replete with materials that accept – and, in some cases, even condone immoral activities and lifestyles, which includes sex outside of marriage and marriage between any two people, and seek to embed gender theory into school curriculum. Truth and freedom of speech have been compromised in some universities. Christian schools are being challenged when they hold to biblical truths. Meanwhile, revisionist teachings about our country’s founding remove any reference to the [...]

The Sphere of Arts has the potential to touch lives in a powerful way and can be, and often is, used to communicate the gospel message.

In the world of mission, the arts are an untapped resource. It is an important means for believers to engage with society, whether through the performing arts, visual arts or other creative arts. Thank God for the many [...]

For many in this nation this means families being together, including, but not always, husbands and wives. It may also mean an additional strain on those working in the law and justice spheres, both emotionally and physically, due to the necessity of keeping safe from the disease, but often needing to work in close proximity to those breaking the law of the land or in need of help. Pray for wisdom and protection for them. Pray against a [...]

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”—
I Corinthians 13: 4-8
He (Jesus) answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?
Matthew 19: 4-5
