    70 million Christians in India under increasing threat of religious persecution

    70 million Christians in India under increasing threat of religious persecution

    More than one hundred Palestinians were killed, with hundreds more injured, after Israeli troops opened fire in a chaotic situation surrounding the disbursement of food in Gaza yesterday. And while details continue to emerge, many nations have already made up their minds on who’s to blame. That tendency to ignore facts in favor of an easier narrative is found outside the Middle East as well and can help explain the global silence in the face of India’s increased persecution of Christians and other religious minorities.

    How Krispy Kreme is honoring Leap Day birthdays

    How Krispy Kreme is honoring Leap Day birthdays

    In honor of Leap Day, Krispy Kreme is giving a free dozen original glazed donuts to anyone who has a February 29 birthday. This news caused me to wonder: How many donuts could the company potentially give away? Whether your birthday is today or not, you should be grateful for today and for the next Leap Day in 2028—if we make it to 2028. This week’s news could cause us to be pessimistic about the future, so where do we turn for the hope that we need?

    Paul McCartney reveals his “Yesterday” inspiration

    Paul McCartney reveals his “Yesterday” inspiration

    “Yesterday” is one of the most haunting songs in the Beatles’ 213-song repertoire. Now, nearly sixty years later, Paul McCartney has explained its emotional bridge. The story is heartbreaking. We don’t have to live very long before we experience such pain ourselves from things we said and did to others and things they said and did to us. In our series on optimism in pessimistic times, how do we find hope in such pain?

    New satellites will take us “one step closer to a Big Brother-is-watching kind of world”

    New satellites will take us “one step closer to a Big Brother-is-watching kind of world”

    The New York Times is reporting that new satellites orbiting the Earth at very low altitudes “may result in a world where nothing is really off limits.” The satellites will be able to image objects as small as four inches. According to one critic, “This is a giant camera in the sky for any government to use at any time without our knowledge.” A Harvard astrophysicist adds, “It’s taking us one step closer to a Big Brother-is-watching kind of world.” How can we best live with optimism and hope in a world filled with pessimism and fear?

    “A happy people are a productive people”: How to live optimistically in a pessimistic time

    “A happy people are a productive people”: How to live optimistically in a pessimistic time

    According to the Harvard Medical School, optimism helps reduce hypertension, protect against developing heart disease, lower respiratory tract infections, and benefit overall health. How, then, can we live with optimism in days like these? Our sustainable source of hope is not to be found in the circumstances of our daily lives, as a perusal of today’s news makes clear.

    Alexei Navalny: “The fact is that I am a Christian”: What the life and death of Alexei Navalny teaches us about love and hate

    Alexei Navalny: “The fact is that I am a Christian”: What the life and death of Alexei Navalny teaches us about love and hate

    While much of the discussion in the week since Alexei Navalny’s death has centered on his legacy of opposing corruption in the Russian government, as well as that government’s role in his demise, his final years were defined as much by his faith as by his politics. And his transformation from a “militant atheist” to a professing Christian demonstrates an important truth about how we should relate to our culture as well.

Essential Perspectives

After hearing Dr Denison speak years ago I was thrilled to learn of Denison Forum/Ministries online and in podcasts to help me discern truth in this blatantly broken world. I consider The Daily Article as essential reading/listening to arm myself in speaking truth in love. It would be mandatory curricula if I taught seminary! And I do use it regularly when teaching Bible Study. Thanks for all the effort and prayer that produces it.
