Religious groups who rely on prayer rather than medical treatments for the care of their children continue to have exemptions in 34 states, but Tennessee became the latest state to remove the religious exemption clause for parents. While some states have different language and clauses, the remaining 16 states will prosecute parents for neglect if they withhold medical treatment for children on religious grounds.

Why this story matters for church leaders: For church leaders who value the sanctity of life and the protection of children, this is an important limit on religious freedom that all churches must consider.
  • How Many Children Will Die? The grim part of this story is that protections are generally only given to children after a high profile case of parental neglect where parents rely on prayer rather than medical treatments.
  • Liberty vs. Responsibility: How have churches with children protection laws fared in terms of religious liberty? Are these cases primarily isolated or more widespread?
  • A Church’s Role: To what extent should churches aim to influence the medical decisions of parents?

After the U.S. Department of Education called for schools to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms of their gender identity, 100 pastors in Ohio wrote a letter calling on a change to the law and vowing civil disobedience. The pastors from Richland County argued that the mandate defied logic and could lead to privacy concerns.
Click here to get the full story. Want stories like this and more delivered to your inbox each week? Go here to order your next four issues for just $1! Why this story matters for church leaders: The transgender bathroom issue isn’t going away any time soon, and church leaders need to balance safety concerns in their congregation with the high suicide rates of transgender individuals.
  • Bathroom Solutions? Are there simple solutions at your church that eliminate the need for this debate in the first place, such as a single bathroom that men or women can use?
  • Suicide Rates: A transgender Ohio teen in a religious family recently committed suicide alongside a highway after her family rejected her. How do we keep transgender people safe in the midst of this debate?
  • Drawing Lines? If members of your church don’t feel safe, how do pastors draw lines here with the law and their church?
Is this is an issue where it’s worthwhile to consult an expert for help with either your building design or your compliance with local laws?

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, pastor of Redeemed Christian Church of God, shared in a recent sermon his guidelines for marriage. Adeboye advised his members to marry within the church so that pastors can help them during difficult times, but he added that men should not marry a woman who cannot cook and who cannot pray for at least an hour.
Click here to get the full story. Want stories like this and more delivered to your inbox each week? Go here to order your next four issues for just $1! Why this story matters for church leaders: Hearing the way that a pastor undermines and limits women in another context can help us from keeping similar mistakes.
  • Control Issues? The pastor in this story encourages members of his church to only marry each other so that church leaders can help them, but is that crossing the line toward control?
  • Just Cooking? This pastor makes the mistake of placing restrictions around the role of women in a marriage. How does this view limit the particular gifts and callings of men and women?
  • What about men? Are there times when pastors focus too much on the roles of women and fail to challenge men in their marriages?
Gender roles can be a divisive topic in some churches. How do we call our members to the costs of discipleship while still honoring where they’re at with gender roles?

Since the Supreme Court ruled that after school Bible clubs could not be banned from public schools, Child Evangelism Fellowship has been launching Good New Bible clubs in roughly 5% of American public elementary schools. However, the Satanic Temple has announced that it will use the same court ruling in order to launch after school Satan clubs that will emphasize scientific rationalism, free thought, and puzzle solving activities. The Satanic Temple notes that it does not worship a being known as Satan and that “Satan” is a metaphorical construct in their view.
Click here to get the full story. Want stories like this and more delivered to your inbox each week? Go here to order your next four issues for just $1! Why this story matters for church leaders: As bad as this headline may seem, church leaders shouldn’t panic, since these clubs will only be in a small number of schools, may have limited appeal, and don’t actually involve the worship of Satan. While church leaders shouldn’t welcome this development, they can offer perspective to worried church members.
  • Freedom of Religion? Religious liberty groups are not opposing this move by the Satanic Temple, since the government cannot show preference to a religion.
  • Which Satan? The Satanic Temple claims that Satan is only a metaphor and that they emphasize rational thought and thinking for yourself. There is no actual worship of a fallen angel.
  • Opportunities for Dialogue: The implication of Satanic groups is that Christians don’t allow free thought, giving Christians a chance to discuss the freedom we have in Christ and the robust history of intellectualism in Christianity.

Pastor Jonathan Greer was voted out of his position by 31 people at Mt. Sterling Baptist Church, and the reasons are allegedly very different.

Why this story matters to church leaders: This story is yet another example of the ways that racism continues to impact ministries and the challenges faced by pastors who work on reconciliation.
  • A Wounded Nation: Racism has left many wounds in American society, and it has been especially damaging in the church.
  • Opposition Expected: As church leaders work on reconciliation, they should expect opposition from members, and these members may hide their true motives.
  • Community Relationships: Relationships can be a helpful first step as church leaders reach out to leaders of the black community and bridge historic divides and right injustices.

  • What do atheists want? Much like anyone else, atheists want someone to take their beliefs and stories seriously and to listen to them.
  • Common Ground? Studies have found that atheists and Christians often value many similar things, but they simply don’t spend enough time talking in order to find this out.

The Rev. Tony Evans, the first black graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, commented that all humans are created in God’s image, so it’s essential to address the issues, institutions, and injustices that impact others, such as the unborn and black people who are killed by police in higher percentages. Evans noted that everyone created in God’s image should be concerned if there are inequities facing one particular group.

Why this story matters for church leaders: Pastors can help bridge the racial divide in America by listening to the stories of black Americans suffering discrimination and injustice and advocating for an emphasis on the image of God in all people.
  • Racism Is Real: Evans notes that injustice and racism are big problems we need to address, but many white Americans never see this at work in their day to day lives.
  • “Only” Black Lives Matter? In his comments, Evans writes that all people are created in God’s image, but black people have had that dignity stripped from them far too often, resulting in movements such as Black Lives Matter.
  • What Comes First? Evans writes that being a “black Christian” or “white Christian” obscures our greater identity as Christians who belong to a race as a secondary matter.

Rich Reaves of LifePath Church visited the mosque next door to his church and found ways to serve his Muslim neighbors.

  • Reaching Muslims: The majority of Muslims in America live in fear and are misunderstood. How can your church raise awareness and understanding?
  • Who Is Close to Your Church? Reaves simply looked for a simple way to help his neighbors and ended up building relationships with the Muslims who attended the mosque next door.

Williamstown, Kentucky has seen both the blessings and curses of the Ark Encounter attraction that is opening this summer through Ken Ham’s Answers in Genesis ministry.

  • Limited Job Growth: Ark Encounter has strict, religious employee guidelines that could limit its reach into the community and alienate some government officials
  • The Wait: Many local investors are waiting to see how profitable the attraction will be before they invest in more hotels and restaurants.
