    This article from Christian Today titled “Faith in the Spotlight: Inside Tennessee’s Trailblazing Christian Nightclub,” shares the unconventional ways of worship that The Cove nightclub offers up for believers in Nashville, Tennessee. The founders of The Cove, Eric and Jordan Diggs aim to offer an alternative space where Christians can experience community and fun. “We ourselves experience a pain point of [...] not knowing what to do to have fun without feeling bad for doing stuff that’s conflicting to our values. There wasn’t a space to cultivate that, so we created it ourselves,” the brothers shared.

      This article from WORLD titled “The God We Can Trust,” reviews books written by Laura Frantz that engage and wrestle with difficult theological questions, like, “Why does God allow for bad things to happen?” Based on true events, Frantz’s books take place in Acadie (current-day Nova Scotia) in the 18th century. Readers can witness Frantz’s characters grapple with their faith in the midst of profound loss, and consequently, they can experience the truth of God’s persistent goodness even in the presence of trials.

        This article from The Christian Broadcasting Network, titled “‘The Chosen’ Transforms Inmates Lives in Prisons Across America: ‘Jesus Came for Everyone,’” spotlights the unique audience engagement of the Bible-inspired TV series, “The Chosen.” The Prison Fellowship has been working to set up screenings of the TV series in prison facilities in hopes to share the Gospel and transform the lives of inmates. President and CEO of Prison Fellowship, Heather Rice-Minus, shared, “We’ve just been seeing such amazing transformation in the men as a result of the opportunity to see the authentic Jesus. And not only that, to see the people He chose [...], I think they really resonate with that in the position that they’re in.”
