Comforting Rachel: How the Christmas Story Helps Us Respond to Abortion

Two millennia ago in the little town of Bethlehem, Mary rejoiced that her baby boy had come into the world.

Talking About Difficult Topics (Like Abortion) in Student Ministry

My role as a Student Pastor places me right in the heart of a traditional corner of our country, in a staunchly Southern Baptist Church, surrounded by parents deeply rooted in conservative values.
