Ingrid presented listeners with details on the following stories:

--A federal appeals court rules that the National Day of Prayer is legal.

--A senate bill in California that would mandate that gay history be taught in schools and that would require textbook manufacturers to include gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender history has passed in the California senate. If adopted by the state assembly and signed by the governor, California will become the first state to require the teaching of gay history.

--Newsweek Magazine is featuring a cover story on the controversy over Pastor Rob Bell’s book, Love Wins. The story is written by Pulitzer Prize winning author and former editor of Newsweek, Jon Meacham. The article is called, What If There’s No Hell? Ingrid encouraged listeners to read a response from Dr. Albert Mohler at the link listed below.

--Elmbrook Church’s Mel Lawrenz weighs in on the Rob Bell controversy.

--A church has decided to create a parody of Rebecca Black’s “Friday” video for their Easter services. The idea was to create a weekend party anthem in order to attract people to their church.

--Today's evangelical pastors need not do a lot of work to prepare messages. All they need to do is go to sites like or, and for a fee, they can download ready-made messages, outlines and video clips. No prayer or study necessary.

A Crosstalk listener writes to say that she feels church has gotten too casual with people eating and drinking and treating church with disrespect. The rest of the show fielded comments from listeners who weighed in on whether the casual approach to worship is Scriptural or not.
