7 days ago
1. CBN - In a Brody File exclusive, we’ve learned that when Donald Trump is sworn in as President of the US Friday, he’ll take the oath of office by placing his hand on his childhood Bible that he’s owned for more than 60 years. He’ll also be using the famous Lincoln Bible. The President-elect was first given this Bible when he was eight years old, just two days shy of his ninth birthday. The date was June 12, 1955, the day he graduated Sunday Church Primary School at First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica, New York. His mother, Mary Anne, presented it to him and he’s kept it ever since. The Bible is a Revised Standard Version with his name imprinted on the front cover. The inside cover is signed by church officials with his name inscribed.
2. Baptist News Global - While leaders in the Southern Baptist Convention and Republicans in Congress called for defunding Planned Parenthood, more than 20 local faith leaders came together Jan. 10 to pronounce blessings on the organization’s newest health clinic in Washington, D.C. Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington opened its new health center in the northeast section of the nation’s capital in September after outgrowing the downtown facility in which it operated for more than 40 years. According to DCist, the dedication service was organized by the Revs. Christine and Dennis Wiley, co-pastors of Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ, a predominantly African-American congregation listed as a member of the Alliance of Baptists and District of Columbia Baptist Convention.
