A New York high school could face legal action after refusing to renew a Christian student organization this year.
Ward Melville High School of East Setauket received a letter from a New York City-based law firm demanding that they continue to recognize the group, Students United in Faith.
The Williamson County School Board in Tennessee is debating whether it will replace a moment of silence at its regular meetings with a prayer, despite warnings that such invocations might be unconstitutional.
During its Monday meeting, the board's policy committee discussed replacing its moment of silence with a prayer that would follow the call to order and the Pledge of Allegiance.
Bill Squire, the school board's attorney, told members that a ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit prohibits the school board from holding a prayer. more >>
Christian youth leaders need to teach teenagers and young adults the basics of apologetics in order to be able to defend their faith in a logical manner, says student pastor and writer Benjer McVeigh.
McVeigh notes that even though youth ministers may not be educated in philosophy or apologetics, they need to be able to answer questions that may arise from young individuals about the validity of their faith. Not doing so may hinder them from justifying their belief in Jesus from common objections, he explains.
"I believe that one of the ways that youth workers can equip teenagers in a meaningful way is to help them understand that faith in Jesus is not a blind faith that goes against all reason but rather a logical response to evidence that supports the existence of the God of the Bible and the fact that Jesus really is who the Bible claims him to be," McVeigh wrote in a blog post for Church Leaders. more >>
