A school district in Florida is considering a complaint sent by a Washington, D.C.-based atheist organization regarding a high school's morning announcement including the phrase "God Bless America."
The legal arm of the American Humanist Association recently sent a letter of complaint to Nassau County School District and Yulee High School on behalf of two students who took issue with the phrase "God bless America" being used on the school intercom.
A few years back, Gloria Campos of WFAA featured a young boy by the name of Ke'onte on her show. She let him share his life story about his life in foster care. She did this more than once, and it eventually led to something positive in Ke'onte's life.
After a local couple heard about his story on the air, they felt that Ke'onte would be the perfect fit to their home. His story touched their heart and they felt like this was the child they were meant to heave, so they decided to adopt him! Both Ke'onte and his parents are lucky to have found each other. Not only is he grateful to have found the perfect parents for him, but they are as well. God has done wonderful things for him, and continues to bless Ke'onte every day.
One day he decided to go live on the air while the woman who helped him get to where he is now, and thank her. She starts to cry and gives him a HUGE hug! more >>
For most of her life, former stripper and prostitute Annie Lobert sought a man to swoop into her life and rescue her from the hardships of growing up in a broken home, just like in the fairy tales. Now the founder of Hookers for Jesus, a ministry for sex workers, Lobert says too many women are placing their hopes for love and security in the wrong place.
Jesus Christ, she said, is the ultimate knight in shining armor, able to rescue them from a life of sin and transforming lives and relationships.
"What us women need to understand [is] if a man can't do what you ideally think he should do, [it is because] God is the only one who can do that for you. Jesus Christ is the only one who can ultimately be your ultimate romantic interest and I'm not talking about sexually. I'm talking about that intimate love bond that we have that heals all wounds, that heals all insecurities, that heals all the things that we think our husbands should do and be," she told The Christian Post. more >>
Thanks to the efforts of one Oregon suburban church, a public school in inner-city Portland that was once on a short list to be shut down due to frequent gang violence and had a reputation of being one of the most underperforming schools in the state, has been transformed and is now thriving at its highest academic level in years.
"Roosevelt High School was well known as the most under-resourced and failing school in the state. It had become a metaphor for failure, with a capital 'F,"' pastor Kip Jacob of SouthLake Church in West Linn told The Christian Post.
Although Roosevelt High School in north Portland and its surrounding neighborhood used to be considered relatively safe and family friendly, all of that changed in the late-1980s when gang members from Los Angeles traveled north looking for a new stronghold to claim. more >>
Texas pastor Matt Chandler, of The Village Church, says the way singles date these days is "goofy" and that he plans to teach his three children to go the "traditional dating" route.
The Mingling of Souls author told The Christian Post, "The way I define it in the book and the way I'm hopefully going to impart to my children, the way we want to do it as the Chandler family is that I think that dating is that period of time of where you're working through and seeing … is this person for me, is the reputation there, is the character there, can I see myself spending my life with them."
The Chandler family way is a return to "traditional dating," where the father of three – two girls and one boy – described as, "You go out in a group, you're getting to know one another, it's not this kind of intense, so do you want to have kids over coffee – that's not dating." more >>
