Two More Victories for Religious Liberty

Over at the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Casey Hough delivers two encouraging updates about the state of religious liberty in the US. He writes,

If a government can compel a Christian business owner to promote a message that is contrary to their sincerely held religious beliefs, then it is also possible to imagine that the government could force a Kosher deli owner or Halal butcher to cater an event that requires them to serve pork.

It Takes a Community: How Work and Church Life Shape People for the World

Dan Darling shares a story which demonstrates how important church and work are to shaping us and giving us purpose. Here’s an excerpt of the article at Made to Flourish:

It turns out the routines of work and church coexist to form people. We were created to work and created to worship. So when one or both of these are missing, it creates a sense of purposelessness, of loss. 

College Freshmen, Commit to a Church

College students can become spiritually lax, drifting away from church and faith altogether. If you’re a college student, don’t let this happen to you. John Kegley explains at The Gospel Coalition:

You need the church because you need to hear God’s Word. You need the church because you need wise and godly mentors. You need the church because you need accountability for your profession of faith. You need the church because you need reminders that your identity rests in Christ crucified.
