(1) Carly Fiorina’s Morning Scripture, by Kate Shellnutt (Christianity Today)

***A fantastic Q&A with Fiorina.
“I begin every morning with a daily Scripture. I’m one of those people who has to spend the first time in the morning with silence, quiet, contemplation, Scripture, and prayer. It’s how I get ready for the day. In a way, daily Scripture is even more important now. It’s interesting. I read this morning Psalm 27, “The Lord is my light and my salvation—then whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid.”

(4) Floridians Clash Over ‘Pastor Protection Act’ (Palm Beach Post)

(5) Christian Refugees Beg the West to Save Them (CatholicSF)

“We are begging the West to stand for the rights of all citizens in Iraq and Syria,” Patriarch Younan said. “The West can’t be just about introducing democracy when you have a majority of Muslims who don’t want a separation of church and state. The Middle East is the cradle of civilization, and Christians have been at the center of the civilization for millennia,” Patriarch Younan said. “We’re going against all the odds. We don’t have the numbers, we don’t have the oil and we don’t have the terrorists that Muslims seem to inspire. But we do have our faith and the hope our Western Christian brothers and sisters will come to our aid.”
