The Darkest Hour

Late-Night TV Show The Darkest Hour Shares Authentic Stories of Transformation

by

Late-night television has something new, raw, and very special to offer. The Darkest Hour shows real people who have survived harrowing experiences and even done harrowing things, and in the darkest hour of their lives, found grace.

Former addicts, thieves, strippers and gang members share their shocking, tragic, hopeful stories of their most shameful moments leading up to their ultimate surrender to Christ. The 30-minute episodes are filmed and edited in a simple, honest way that allows these gritty stories to be at once gut-wrenching and inspiring. The show is not preachy, nor does it contain Christianese.

Created by Jay Lowder of Harvest Ministries, The Darkest Hour is not intended to make money, its purpose is to give hope to those who may still be living in their darkest hour. Purposely scheduled at 1AM, 2AM, 3AM and 4AM on Saturday night, the primary audience they are hoping to reach are those coming back from late-night partying, or those restless and looking for peace.

“My dad used to say ‘Nothing good happens after midnight,’” Lowder writes in an article for Charisma Magazine.

Christmas Stories

10 Heartwarming Christmas Stories to Read with Your Kids

by

Christmas is the perfect time to establish heartwarming traditions that foster a deeper connection with your children. Watching a family movie can be fun, but reading a meaningful story together exercises the brain in a different way—creating a more memorable experience—and enables you to interact more directly with your child. Here are ten beautiful and moving Christmas stories that emphasize faith.

The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry, Illustrated by P.J. Lynch

O. Henry’s classic Christmas love story was first published in 1905 but still resonates today. Newlyweds Jim and Della have no money for Christmas gifts so they each decide to sell the thing that is most precious to them to buy a gift for each other. Their sacrificial gifts of love are compared to the gifts of the Magi to the baby Jesus.

The Other Wise Man by Henry Van Dyke, Illustrated by Christian Slade

What if there was another wise man that didn’t travel with the magi of the Bible? This is the fictional story of another wise man that follows the star of Bethlehem for years, but rather than finding the baby Jesus, his journey takes him to many others who need his help.

David A. R. White Gods Not Dead 2

God’s Not Dead 3 Is In the Works

by

God’s Not Dead 3 is in the works, confirms David A. R. White, co-founder of Pure Flix. And it comes as no surprise considering the success of God’s Not Dead (1 & 2).

In an interview with CNS News, the God’s Not Dead actor and producer mentions an “Easter egg” at the end of the second film, which teases at another installment. The bonus scene pops up after the credit and shows White’s character Pastor David, who failed to produce his sermon during the trial, arrested for contempt of court.

This implies he will be the primary character persecuted and called upon to defend his faith, but the story is still in development.

“We’ve been really praying about what this is supposed to do, and haven’t wanted to rush into production,” he tells Christian Post, “But we’re excited about what we’re coming up with.”

White recently published a book Between Heaven & Hollywood. In it, he encourages readers how to pursue their God-given dreams. He shares his own unique journey of growing up on a wheat farm as a Mennonite.

  • I would love a show that proves that the Bible is real. There’s so much controversy about the accuracy and I think it would benefit young believers.

Lauren Daigle How Can It Be

Christian Music Singer Lauren Daigle Receives Grammy Nomination

by

Lauren Daigle’s debut album How Can It Be (Centricity Music) has been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Album. This comes in the wake of her huge success at the 47th Annual GMA (Gospel Music Association) Dove Awards held in Nashville this past October.

She received Dove Awards for Songwriter of the Year (Artist), Artist of the Year and Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year for “Trust in You.” And now, the artist hopes to win a Grammy in February, but admits that she sings for God and not for the awards.

“I want God to be speaking louder than the music,” she told Billboard.

Her calling to write and sing worship music was clarified during a difficult illness related to an immune deficiency that kept her out of high school for two years. This forced-solitude brought to light the importance of her childhood passion — singing.

Later she worked as a worship leader and had a brief stint on American Idol in 2012, but was cut after the first round in Las Vegas. She caught the attention of Centricity Music after singing on an EP with a local band and transitioned to Nashville.

Fetus Heartbeat

Ohio Legislature Passes Bill Significantly Restricting Abortion

by

The Ohio General Assembly has passed the most restrictive abortion legislation in America. It now  rests on Governor John Kasich’s desk for him to sign or veto the controversial bill.

If he signs, the “heartbeat” bill will prohibit abortions once a fetus’ heartbeat can be detected, which is typically at six weeks gestation, but could be discernable as early as 22 days after conception.

Ohio legislators have tried to pass this law for years but it has never passed both chambers until now. Republican Keith Faber, president of the Ohio Senate said the election of Donald Trump, who promises to appoint Supreme Court justices sympathetic to their cause, paved the way for the extreme measure.

“A new president, new Supreme Court appointees change the dynamic, and there was consensus in our caucus to move forward,” said Faber.

The heartbeat bill was attached to House Bill 493 which addresses child abuse. Dissenters argue there are no exceptions for rape or incest, and many women may not realize they are pregnant until after a heartbeat can be discerned. There is, however, exception provided for the safety of the mother.
