The Public Square

Is it more important to be popular and accepted or to walk in the truth, even if we are rejected by the crowds, the culture and the cool kids? Is rejection a public relations challenge or an inevitable reality for people who choose to be truth tellers?

Tune in to this special edition of The Public Square® and hear an inspiring presentation on the biblical and historical challenge of dealing with rejection. The presenter is David Zanotti. The event is the 4th of July Annual Address at Bethel Baptist Church in Ashland, Ohio. This is the fourth installment of The Independence Day Series of messages for The American Mission® Series.

It's all waiting for you on this week's edition of The Public Square®. Please tune in and tell a friend.

It was religious persecution that drove the earliest settlers to the shores of America. People came here to practice their faith without fear of intimidation, persecution and death. How is it that in the 21st century, leading political figures now challenge the notion that a Christian, who confesses the truth claims of Jesus Christ, is no longer qualified to be considered an American?

These are the questions on today's edition of The Public Square®. Please don't miss this very important conversation.
