Just in time for Father's Day, founding member of eight-time Dove Award-winning trio Selah, Todd Smith, releases his powerful new single "Calling All Fathers" and offers practical advice to men as they step up to the role of fatherhood.
Penned by Smith and award-winning producer/songwriter Ed Cash, "Calling All Fathers" will be featured on his upcoming full-length solo release coming later this summer on Curb Records. Smith says the song was largely inspired by his own journey as a husband and dad to four daughters.
"When I wrote this song I wrote it from a place of confession. I wrote it to challenge me, not just to challenge other men," Smith told The Christian Post. more >>
The massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history that has captured the world's attention, was a "symptom" of the country's spiritual condition, asserts the Rev. Franklin Graham.
During a prayer rally held Wednesday in Madison, Wisconsin, a stop on the evangelist's "Decision America" tour, Graham said that America brought the mass shooting upon itself because it has become a "godless nation," reports The Cap Times.
Graham began the rally, which drew nearly 6,000 to Madison's Capitol Square, with prayer for the Orlando massacre's 49 dead, 53 injured, affected families and those in attendance. more >>

Joel Osteen, senior pastor of the 40,000-member Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, says people should stop worrying about problems that have yet to occur.
"Jesus put it this way [in Matthew 6:34]: 'Don't worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will have enough worries of its own,'" Osteen says in his Friday blog post, warning Christians that angst and worry can fester, causing turmoil that leads to precious time being wasted.
"Instead, live in today, enjoy the blessings of today, love people today, and don't try to solve problems that haven't even happened yet!" Osteen says. more >>

The "Jesus Lunch" is an unofficial gathering held each Tuesday at Fireman's Park for students of nearby Middleton High School of the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District.
