In 2008 the movie “Expelled” presented evidence of the discrimination many scientists face in the academic community for not holding to Darwinian evolution.

David Coppedge has been a regular Prime Time America guest over the last few years on a variety of astronomy topics, and he finds himself in an “expelled” situation at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.  This feature takes a look at his case with his lawyer William J. Becker, Jr., and Casey Luskin, policy analyst for the Discovery Institute.

Sometimes for the believer we can struggle with balancing the hope of the new heaven and earth with the uncertainty of what we should do in the here and now. How do we live by the promise of coming paradise with the courage of doing good works for God’s glory while we wait?

Dr. Andrew Davis, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church, Durham, NC, helps us consider this issue.

The April 2010 Table Talk Magazine published a short article written by Dr. Davis on today’s theme entitled: The Bravest and Newest World.

Conversation: Spoken Word as Ministry with Micah Bournes

In Church, Culture, General Interest, Religion and Worldviews, Scripture, Testimonies on April 12, 2010 at 8:30 am

Click here for Monday’s feature:

In the 1980s and 1990’s an art form emerged out of the Hip-Hop and Rap subcultures known as “Spoken Word”–poetry that tended to be critical in nature regarding social concerns or inequities. Since that time, it has become a popular form of expression for more than protest, but continues to be provocative in its focus.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Micah Bournes, a spoken word artist and Senior at the Moody Bible Institute, who uses it as a medium to share the gospel.

If you’d like to contact Micah his email address is: micahbournes@yahoo.com

Here are the complete versions of the spoken word pieces used in today’s feature plus a bonus one:
