Faith, the Election and the Supreme Court

The issue of the Supreme Court has been at the forefront of much of the conversation circling around this year’s Presidential campaign, yet it is rather amazing how little most of us know about the Court.  How many members are there on the Court?  Has it always been that way?  Should the number be changed and what would it take to change it?  Why should all this matter to people of faith?  Joe Carter has some info I had never heard before when he writes about How Evangelicals Can Help Fix the Supreme Court.  Take a look and see what you think.

Symbols of the Faith

You might have one on your bumper, in your ad in the yellow pages, embroidered on a shirt – I’m talking about the symbol known as the Christian Fish.  It is pretty easy to figure out where the symbol of the Cross comes from, but what about the Fish?  What does it mean and should we use it today?  Read about it origins here.

Reformation Sunday

This coming Sunday will be celebrated as Reformation Sunday in many Protestant Churches – a look back at the event known to history as the Protestant Reformation and the reason there are Protestant Churches today.  There were many leaders but none more influential than Martin Luther, John Calvin and Ulrich Zwingli.  You can read brief but informative biographies of them at the Protestant website.
