Celebrity pastor Chad Veach is not letting life's circumstances keep him down. In his new book, Unreasonable Hope, the young minister uses his hardest life battle to encourage others to keep trusting God.
Veach and his wife, Julia, had their whole lives change in the course of a day when their 4-months-old daughter, Georgia, was diagnosed with lissencephaly, a rare, gene-linked brain malformation, also known as "smooth brain."
Since then, Georgia's seizure management has been the biggest struggle, at one point she was having 50 seizures a day. Although that's no longer the case, the couple still are facing a lot and are vowing to remain constant in their faith, ministry and family life. more >>

Doris Donnelly, a retired professor of religion at John Carroll University in suburban Cleveland, who is administering the funding to the Science and Faith in Seminary Formation program, said the idea is to raise "the scientific literacy of clergy," according to Catholic News Service.
"We want to be able to integrate science and religion so people in the pews don't have to check their critical mind at the church door," said Dominican Sister Linda Gibler, associate academic dean at the Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio, one of the grant recipients. more >>
A Bible-based theme park in Buenos Aires, Argentina, which some have labeled "Christianity's answer to Disneyland," features reenactments of the crucifixion portrayed by an actor and a robotic version of Jesus.
