In today’s #FaithandCulture Reading, we cull a brief list of some of our favorite articles of the week. Today we highlight articles from Chelsea Patterson Sobolik, Collin Huber, Max Power and more.
In the wake of the US Senate’s failure to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, Chelsea Patterson Sobolik offers practical wisdom for how we can practically serve the pro-life cause. Here’s an excerpt:
Advocacy doesn’t have to be intimidating or difficult. Reach out to your local Congressman’s district office and ask for a meeting with a staffer. Familiarize yourself with current pro-life legislation at the state and federal level. When you’re meeting with a government official or staffer, share why you’re pro-life, why it matters that they vote for pro-life policies, and piece of legislation you hope they’ll support. Don’t be afraid to share a personal story.
Over at Made to Flourish, Collin Huber explains how Jesus transforms the way we work. He writes,
“One of the beautiful things about Jesus entering into this world is that it proves every arena of this world matters to God. If the Son can sweat in a workshop, so can we, even if our “workshop” is a cubicle, a coffee counter or a construction site. God desires faithfulness, not external metrics.”
Does your family ever have a family movie night? If so, you should consider these movie recommendations from Max Power at The International Mission Board. He writes,
These beautifully crafted films are more than an entertaining escape—they’re an invitation to discuss important truths with your kids about the gospel and the way it relates to people living in other cultures.
This isn’t an article, per se, but we thought you might be interested in this upcoming conference from Southeastern Seminary’s Kingdom Diversity. Here’s a description of the event:

In addition, we will offer training and resources to increase awareness for the journey.
