Popular alternative Christian rock musician Michael Gungor of the musical collective Gungor, along with an eclectic mix of people belonging to a group called The Liturgists, is offering 100 people a $300 chance to join the group in a high level conversation expected to, among other things, discuss the "cultural ghettoes" of the church and secular society.
The event billed "Belong," is expected to feature a conversation with several members of the creative group including Gungor, who rattled the Orthodox Christian world last year with the revelation that he does not believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible.
"I have no more ability to believe, for example, that the first people on Earth were a couple named Adam and Eve that lived 6,000 years ago. I have no ability to believe that there was a flood that covered all the highest mountains of the world only 4,000 years ago, and that all of the animal species that exist today are here because they were carried on an ark and then somehow walked or flew all around the world from a mountain in the Middle East after the water dried up," he confessed. more >>

New mother Carrie Underwood won big at Wednesday night's CMT Music Awards in Nashville, taking home the Video of the Year award for her faith-inspired hit "Something in the Water," and she thanked fans while calling it a "blessing." The singer also made history by scoring her 13th CMT award, making her the most decorated CMT winner.
The country music star made her first public appearance since giving birth to her first child, Isaiah Michael Fisher, in February. And she was sure to honor both him and her hockey player husband, Mike Fisher, upon taking home three gongs, including Video of the Year for the fourth year in a row.
"This is my first show since little Isaiah has been in the world," a beaming Underwood told the star-studded crowd at Nashville, Tennessee's Bridgestone Arena. "He's probably napping on the bus right now, but I should definitely say that he has already inspired me so much, as well as my husband, Mike. Thank you guys! … This is such an amazing blessing." more >>
Christian singer and songwriter Dan Bremnes released a brand new music video Wednesday for his hit single "Where the Light Is" which he said he wrote at "probably the darkest point of my life."
The Canadian-born singer previously told The Christian Post that he wrote the song during what he described as "probably the darkest point of my life" and the video, he said, represents his search for light in a world of gloom.
"My hope and my prayer is that these songs will reach people," Bremnes said of his album, which debuted on June 9 under the same name as his hit single. "I want to make music because I believe God uses music to reach His people's hearts. I hope that these songs can speak to people and be a part of their journey and be a blessing in people's lives." more >>
In a recent interview discussing her "fluid sexuality," pop singer Miley Cyrus revealed to controversial Paper magazine — in which she appears nude posing with a pig — that she's sexually open to "every single thing that is consenting and doesn't involve an animal."
The former "Hannah Montana" star revealed that she is sexually attracted to both men and women and has been since she was 14 years old.
"I remember telling [my mother] I admire women in a different way," said Miley in the interview. "And she asked what that meant. And I said, I love them. I love them like I love boys. And it was so hard for her to understand. She didn't want me to be judged and she didn't want me to go to hell. But she believes in me more than she believes in any god. I just asked for her to accept me. And she has." more >>
