Jesus told His followers that the world hates them (John 15:18-19), so it’s no surprise that people who wear His name around the world are still being persecuted in our day. Some of these believers and their stories, however, rise to the consciousness of Christians around the world, and even make it to national newscasts and newspapers. Friday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Todd Nettleton, Chief of Media Relations and Message Integration for Voice of the Martyrs shares 10 important stories of Christian persecution that gained global attention in the last 10 years.
Are you looking forward to Christian movies in 2020? There should be much to choose from this year! Also, maybe a movie could be used as an opportunity for outreach to a friend or relative who might be hesitant to come to church, but would be comfortable in a movie theater. Friday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, faith-based movie advocate, Stan Goldenberg will talk about some upcoming films in the new year that you won't want to miss!
