Recently, those of us who are concerned about the encroachment of our culture on religious freedom were alarmed at the move by the mayor of Houston in issuing subpoenas to pastors for their sermons. Though the subpoena was rescinded, it is certainly a warning to the church that we should expect intimidation and persecution to increase in the days ahead.
The Family Research Council and other partners are hosting a live webcast on Sunday, November 2 at 7pm ET with a rebroadcast at 9pm ET. In this event, speakers from across the nation will gather at Grace Community Church in Houston, Texas to focus on the freedom to live out our faith free of government intrusion or monitoring.
