For over a decade, singer-songwriter Kari Jobe has debuted worship music for a multitude of fans but now she is presenting a different kind of creation to the masses in the form of her bulging baby bump.
"Baby bump time," Jobe, 34, wrote in an Instagram photograph of her protruding midsection. "Little Carnes is showing a whole lot more so I thought you might wanna see, #selfie #notmyrealweddingring #fingersaretoofat #Englishsconesareyummy @codycarnes."
In July, the contemporary Christian singer announced that she and her singer-songwriter husband Cody Carnes were expecting their first child together. more >>
A historic church in the former capital of the Confederate States of America has announced that it will be removing the rebellion's battle flag from its building.
St. Paul's Episcopal Church of Richmond, Virginia, decided to remove the numerous Confederate battle flag images from its building after holding a congregation-wide discernment.
Indiana Pastor Davey Blackburn of Resonate Church was talking with his college roommate, Pastor Kenneth Wagner, on the telephone as his wife, Amanda, lay dying after an attack during a home invasion two weeks ago.
Wagner, who is pastor of United Church in Delaware, is first mentioned in the affidavit of probable cause against Amanda's suspected killer, Larry Jo Taylor Jr., 18, and his accomplice, Jalen Watson, 21. A copy of the document was shared with The Christian Post by the Marion County Prosecutor's Office on Tuesday.
On the morning of Nov. 10, when his 28-year-old wife was fatally shot in the head, arm and back, Blackburn told detectives that he left his home at about 6 a.m. to go to the L.A. Fitness gym located at 4015 Shore Drive in Indianapolis. more >>

With his father-in-law by his side, Amanda Blackburn's grieving widower, Davey, reacted just like Jesus on the cross to his wife's alleged killers Wednesday when he declared "Father forgive them for they don't know what they are doing."
A copy of the affidavit of probable cause against Amanda's suspected killer, Larry Jo Taylor Jr., 18, and his accomplice, Jalen Watson, 21, released Monday by the Marion County Prosecutor's Office, painted an agonizing picture of what Pastor Blackburn's wife suffered on the morning of Nov. 10 while he was away at the gym.
The autopsy conducted on Amanda on Nov. 12 revealed: "(She) sustained a gunshot wound to the back of her head. She also had a gunshot wound to the lower left arm which traveled up to her biceps. She also had a through and through gunshot wound which entered and exited her upper back." more >>
Two days before his pregnant wife Amanda was fatally shot in the head in their matrimonial home two weeks ago, Resonate Church Pastor Davey Blackburn preached an eerie message on using worship as a weapon to get through "situations that we can't handle."
"We call this buzzword worship a lot but we don't really know exactly what it means. And so we wanted to help you understand that worship ultimately is not a moment when we sit in a service and we sing. Worship is essentially what controls you. What controls you is what you worship and so worship is a 24/7 lifestyle lived out not just on Sunday but Monday through Sunday every single day 24/7," said Blackburn in the nearly hour-long message recorded on Nov. 8 and posted to YouTube on Nov. 19.
"We all come upon situations that we can't handle, that are too big, too painful, too daunting for us to overcome. In these times, the only answer is to put our eyes on God and let worship be our weapon against whatever opposes us," the description of the video noted. more >>
