PLAN NOW TO PRAY FOR THE PERSECUTED NOV. 9

NOVA SCOTIA WILL REVIEW BAN OF TWU LAWYERS
Will law school graduates from Trinity Western University be allowed to practise law in Nova Scotia? A decision by the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society basically says “not until TWU changes its Christian community covenant,” but that ban will be challenged at the Nova Scotia Supreme Court in December. The EFC (together with Christian Higher Education Canada) filed legal arguments in the case last week, arguing that the provincial law society overstepped its mandate and that its decision violates the religious freedom of TWU and its graduates. See theEFC.ca/TWULaw.

WHO’S IN CONTROL IN BIBLE READING?
“Many people study the Bible without ever being shaped by the text. When we come to the Word with our own agenda, we put ourselves in the position of control. We may look for what we get out of it rather than ever allowing the Word to get into us. We so easily forget that reading the Word of God is meant to be a supernatural act of cooperating with the Holy Spirit. We’re meant to be listening to the Word with the ears of the heart.” From a recent post on the Faith Today blog.
