How we’re losing the freedom to object to abortion

Mar 13, 2020 by

by Roger Kiska, Christian Concern: Increasingly, it would seem, cultural forces are aggressively trying to wipe out any dissenting views about abortion.

REMEMBRANCE OF THE MARTYRS: Reflections from Uganda 2020

Mar 12, 2020 by

by Stephen Noll, Contending Anglican: On my way home back from Uganda last week, I stopped over at the Anglican Martyrs’ Shrine at Namugongo, the pagan execution ground, now a pilgrimage site.

By Andrew Symes, Anglican Mainstream: Christians wanting to remain faithful to the apostolic gospel and the teachings of Scripture in the context of an uncomprehending and sometimes hostile world and increasingly secularised church, need wise guides to help navigate the future. In the face of discouragement and complexity, leaders can capture imaginations by articulating vision with optimism, simplicity and clarity – for example: “our mission is to plant churches, our message is the...
