A resolution calling for a secular alternative to the National Day of Prayer in May, called the "Day of Reason," has been introduced in the U.S. House.
Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.) and Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, a Democrat who represents the District of Columbia in the U.S. House of Representatives, put forth the resolution earlier this week, urging that the Day of Reason take place on May 5, the same day as this year's National Day of Prayer.
"The National Day of Reason celebrates the positive impact the application of reason has had on humanity. The evolution of my Silicon Valley district into the world's center of innovation came about through the use of the scientific method and the application of reason. These are fundamental pillars that scientists and engineers in Silicon Valley and around the country depend on to develop new technologies and cures for diseases," Honda said in a press release. more >>
Los Angeles — With minimum promotion, a grassroots movement comprised of mostly Christian youth groups throughout the U.S. generated more than 115,000 online registrations for people to attend Azusa Now, a prayer and worship event at the L.A. Coliseum Saturday.
Drawing from the historic Azusa Street Revival held in 1906, organizers say what made the event special was that it "mirrored the reality of the formation of the church in Acts 2."
"Firstly, there was a multi-ethnic gathering of unity in Christ, (Acts 2:1-11). Secondly, the miraculous, attesting ministry of the Holy Spirit was enjoyed in a unique way, (Acts 2:2-4). Finally, there was a clear presentation of the Gospel leading many to salvation, (Acts 2:37-41)," they stated. "This outpouring of Heaven descended on the poor districts of Los Angeles during an incredibly dangerous, volatile and prejudiced period of American history. God used an African-American named William Seymour to launch this modern Acts 2 movement. Black, white, Asian and Hispanic came together in bonds of love, unity and prayer. It came to be said, 'the color line was washed away' at Azusa." more >>

Contestant Trent Harmon was crowned the 15th and final "Idol" winner, besting runner-up La'Porsha Renae.
