From Minnesota State High School League's "transgender student athlete policy" forcing female athletes to compete against biological males, to public school districts forcing boys and girls to disrobe in front of each other, to transgender activist groups suing the state of Minnesota so that they can force taxpayers to pay for "sex change operations," the transgender agenda is being forced upon Minnesotans. What do we do? Specifically, what should Christians do? And how did your legislators vote on transgender issues?
The Tour - “America is at a crossroads, and I believe we should take every opportunity to stand up for the things of God and His Word.” – Franklin Graham
Franklin Graham is traveling to all 50 states in 2016 to hold prayer rallies, to preach the Gospel, and to challenge believers to take a stand and take action.
What are the biggest threats to religious freedom in Minnesota in 2016? Does my child have any religious rights in school anymore? Did my legislators fight to protect my religious freedom? Can (and should) followers of Christ advocate for religious freedom rights in government?

God's gift of Life is way more than just a "social issue." Plus, find out how legislators in your district voted on legislation related to the Sanctity of Life.

Our friends at Bethlehem College and Seminary are hosting a free event with author N.D. Wilson on Friday, April 24th at 7:00 PM. Mr. Wilson will be speaking on “God’s Imagination and Ours”, helping us develop a deeper Christian understanding of the imagination. Click here for more details.

Take a moment to watch the clip below and see if a well rounded and rich Christian imagination might not be exactly what we need in our trying times, when the world wants us only to imagine despair:
N.D. is the author of several books ranging from Children’s Literature to Apologetics, including Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl, Death by Living, and 100 Cupboards.
