Joni StatementEver since the 1990s when Oregon passed its Death with Dignity Act, I’ve been working to de-grease its slippery slope. Under the law, physicians may give lethal drugs to patients with terminal illnesses who want to end their lives. The law’s proponents have insisted it could only be offered to those who had 6 months or less to live, and was a safety valve when nothing else could be done to alleviate suffering. But not so anymore...

Revive Us 2I want to tell you about a special event to be held October 24 (encore performance November 1). That evening, Revive Us 2 will be live-streamed in theaters all across America. This is a great way for the body of Christ to come together and be strengthened, encouraged, and unified in praying for our nation.

Prayer in the Face of EvilOur country has suffered, yet again, an act of pure evil and civil unrest – and as Christians, we are dropping to our knees, asking for God's mercy, healing, and grace. This morning I woke up to the news that at least 58 people were killed, and over 550 were wounded in a horrific shooting in Las Vegas. A gunman turned a concert into...

“Are You Ready?” ultimately answers the question, “What does it mean to fully belong?” All too often, well-meaning churches and pastors can establish what they think of as a disability ministry – physical accommodations for individuals...
