How Black and White Christians Do Discipleship Differently; German Judges Say Torching of Synagogue isn't Hate...more

Abortionist Quits After a Dream: “These Children are the Ones You Killed With Your Abortions”  Nightmares and dreams about children plagued Stojan Adasevic for years while he worked as an abortionist for communist Serbia.

In 26 years, Stojan aborted approximately 48,000 unborn children, including his own relatives. According to his communist country, however, he only was removing blobs of tissue.

The National Catholic Register reports Stojan had a conversion experience, partially as a result of his dreams, and he now is one of the strongest advocates for unborn babies’ lives in Eastern Europe...

Episcopalians Uneasy about Cathedral Inauguration Role The Washington National Cathedral is once again at the center of controversy, but this time it isn’t for political pronouncements from the pulpit.

The state of California agreed to pay for the surgery in a settlement reached with Quine in August 2015. Joyce Hayhoe, a spokesperson for the official who oversees prison medical care in California, said the procedure, medication, and counseling could cost as much as $100,000. The attorneys at the Transgender Law Center, which represents Quine, dispute that figure...

How Black and White Christians Do Discipleship Differently  ...When it comes to spiritual formation and discipleship, African American Christians are in it together.
Black believers are more likely to position their growth in Christ in the context of community and fellowship, while white Christians take a more individualized approach, according to a study released this week from Barna Research.
The survey found that twice as many black Christians as whites were currently being mentored or discipled by a fellow believer (38% vs. 19%). Over a quarter of black Christians also served as mentors themselves, compared to 17 percent of white Christians...
