In the April 16 issue, LinC looks at Easter, the most important day of the Christian calendar—and a day when we celebrate Christ’s resurrection—from a different perspective. Jesus taught his followers to go out into the world and proclaim the good news that Christ defeated death and paid the price for our sins. But how do we proclaim the truth of Easter while living side-by-side with people of other faiths? Key Scriptures: 1 Kings 18:21-40; Matthew 15:21-28; Acts 10:34-43; Romans 11:33-36.
In the April 23 issue, LinC takes a look at Pink’s popular new song, “Stupid Girls.” The song pokes fun at types of girls the artist doesn’t like, but it also has an important message about how women are exploited by popular culture. How do demeaning media portrayals of women have a negative effect on teenage girls and boys and conflict with our belief that the human body is "God's temple"? How can teens reject our culture's exploitation of women and learn to see the human body through God's eyes?
