CHICAGO, IL (January 13, 2012) – Editor’s note: Many Covenanters routinely share links to social media articles and videos that Covenant News Service believes may be of interest to others. Following is a sample of those submissions – their inclusion does not represent an endorsement of any views expressed.
College Students Vow to End Slavery – At the Passion 2012 conference, 42,000 college students focused on the issue of human trafficking and helped raise $2.6 million to combat the practice. To learn more about the issue, visit the Covenant’s human trafficking website.
Orthodox Glad to Claim Polamalu as One of Their Own – With so much media focus on Tim Tebow, people also were finding their way to this story published last year about the Pro Bowl Steelers Safety. It is an excellent brief profile.
Does God Really Care Who Wins Football Games? – Quarterback great Fran Tarkenton shares his own history of faith in the locker room and on the field.
The High Cost of Being Poor – The poor pay more for groceries, transportation and other daily items than do people making more money.
A Muffin Makeover: Dispelling the Low-Fat-Is-Healthy Myth – On a lighter note, with churches increasingly focusing on ministries of health, articles like this one from the Harvard School of Public Health are ways we can keep up on the latest important information – and make some tasty treats at the same time.
