Nepal, Baltimore, Washington and Raleigh 

Unimaginable devastation in Nepal, unbelievable destruction in Baltimore, unprecedented discussion in Washington and unnecessary confusion in Raleigh – these are the big headlines this week. Your Biblical Recorder is covering the news you need to know.

You’ve heard about the horrible devastation from the earthquake and aftershocks in Nepal. Read about the relief work and ministry your partners are doing through Baptist Global Response and North Carolina Baptist Men. Pray for the suffering people in this crisis and for the relief workers who are sacrificially serving them.

Your ministry partners are making a strong impact in the torn city of Baltimore. Joel Rainey serves on the staff of the region’s Baptist convention. Please read his passionate commentary. Hear the heart of our North American Mission Board partners in this story. Pray for believers who are confronting Baltimore’s real needs with biblical compassion. We will continue to post more stories on BRnow.org.

Everybody is watching the Supreme Court’s discussions on the definition of marriage. Can you believe we are even having this discussion? We will keep you informed on developments in this unprecedented, historic case. Pray for the justices of the court and pray for America!

In Raleigh the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) is not dead. Last week’s news from legislative leadership implied that RFRA was dead. It is not. I will be posting an update on BRnow.org Wednesday. Watch for it, and pray for the elected leaders of our state.
