Roma Downey shared an amazing photo of a cross formed by clouds in the sky above the set of her new television series "A.D." on Friday.
The "Touched By an Angel" star and her husband, Mark Burnett, are executive producers of "A.D.," which will premiere on NBC Easter Sunday. The couple were filming their original NBC event series in Morocco when an unbelievable sight stopped production in its tracks.
"On the 'A.D.' set this week we were filming Peter and John in front of the Sanhedrin. … When Adam Levy (who plays Peter), turned to Babou Ceesay (who is playing John), and pointed to the sky directly overhead, there they could see clouds had formed in a complete blue sky in the perfect shape of a cross," Downey said in a statement this week. more >>
The Holy Hip Hop for Hunger Concert & Awards Show, held at South Houston's Legacy Church, collected between 2,000 and 3,000 cans for the Houston Food Bank, while giving out awards to local male and female rap artists, spoken word poets, producers and DJs who praise the name of Jesus.
The cans came from the nearly 600 hip hop fans who were encouraged to bring five canned goods in exchange for free entrance to the event.
"I love to see more opportunities for the genre and the people making this kind of music to be honored because I think it's a great justice that they're doing for the kids, [for] the time and money I see them spending on recording and doing music and doing free events. Just trying to bring more awareness to what we're doing," said Hunger Awards organizer Vaughaligan Walwyn. more >>
Christian worship leader-turned-YouTube sensation Chris Picco is not blaming God.
In an emotional speech delivered at the funeral of his wife, Ashley, and young son, Lennon James, at the Loma Linda University Church in California on Saturday, Picco declared: "God had nothing to do with this," as he mourned his tragic loss and prepared to keep on living.
Picco's son, Lennon James Picco, was recently delivered by emergency C-section at 24 weeks. His wife, Ashley, 30, died in her sleep shortly after that. Prior to Lennon's death, Picco was captured in a viral video singing the Beatle's hit song "Blackbird" to his son. more >>
This adorable baby is doing something incredible that not many baby's her age can accomplish. She reaches the development stage at which she can mimic sound. She uses it to copy a word that is precious to her daddy.
Infants can actually develop this ability to mimic gestures and speech inflection. It usually develops around three to six months of age. This adorable little girl seems to be ahead of the curve. She tells her daddy she loves him after watching him say it to her several times.

Every so often you will hear someone say "life is good" and yes it is good most of the time. But, not every day is easy. People use all different sayings and idioms to let people know how they are feeling. What about when you are feeling pain and suffering?
It is important to remember that we should always be happy even when life throws us curveballs. But, it also may be very difficult for us to deal with pain and suffering when we feel real down. So we could look up to other Christians who can offer advice to us when we are in need. No one is perfect, and once we realize that it becomes easier for us as Christians to listen to other people's advice.
Below are 10 Christian quotes and scripture about pain and suffering: more >>
Some believe that salvation occurs only after a person is immersed in water. Is this true?
Brantly Millegan, for example, at the Catholic University of America, said the following in a recent interview with the Christian Post, "Catholics baptize infants because infants have Original Sin and need Jesus for salvation just as much as anyone else, and baptism is the way they can receive it."
Many of the early church fathers embraced this view of baptism as well. Even though we cherish many of their teachings, they were fallible…some taught that the Holy Spirit was a created being, the salvation of all (including Satan), purgatory, and so on. Therefore, we must look primarily at what the scriptures teach. more >>
