3. NSJ: Gov. Roy Cooper announces modified Phase 3 to begin Friday

ICYMI: "Gov. Roy Cooper announced on Wednesday, Sept. 30 that the state will move forward into Phase 3, although restrictions will continue in some areas.

In today’s executive order, which takes effect at 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2, businesses in industries that have been closed, such as amusement parks and movie theaters, will be allowed to open with restrictions on seating and capacity. Those restrictions include mandatory face coverings and limits of 30% capacity."

Candidate for Governor, Lt. Dan Forest, has been an ongoing critic of Governor Cooper's overhanded approach to North Carolina's re-opening strategy. He has continued to condemn the Governor's slow response, arguing that families and businesses across the state have suffered greatly as a result. 

In response, Dan Forest released a video ad yesterday, which you can watch here.

4. NY TIMES: For Conservative Christian Women Amy Coney Barrett’s Success Is Personal

"But for many conservative Christian women, the thrill of the nomination is more personal. Judge Barrett, for them, is a new kind of icon — one they have not seen before in American cultural and political life: a woman who is both unabashedly ambitious and deeply religious, who has excelled at the heights of a demanding profession even as she speaks openly about prioritizing her conservative Catholic faith and family. Judge Barrett has seven children, including two children adopted from Haiti and a young son with Down syndrome."

5. NC VALUES: Carolina Values Summit Rebroadcast

Earlier this week we had a special rebroadcast on 9/27 of the Carolina Values Summit 2020, a ground-breaking online summit for Christian leaders featuring an impressive lineup of speakers who will equip you to resist growing attacks on religious freedom.

The Summit’s purpose is to show Christian voters the threats to our religious liberties can be stopped if they will just get out and vote. We encourage pastors and churches show the Summit video and its speaker's testimonies at church services and small group meetings,  and use them to motivate their congregations to VOTE.

WEEKLY PRAYER: PRESIDENT TRUMP & FIRST LADY MELANIA TRUMP

LORD, we come to you per your instruction to pray for our leaders and those in authority. At this particular time, we lift up to you our President and the First Lady, who have tested positive for COVID-19. Father, we pray that you may protect their health. We pray that their symptoms may be mild, and that the virus may pass their bodies quickly. We also pray for the health of our nation as a result. This year has already brought with it a number of exhausting trials and tribulations, and we pray that our president's health may not deteriorate the state of affairs any deeper. Bring repentance and peace to our nation. Be with all those families who have been ravaged by the virus, and with those individuals currently undergoing its effects. Bring to them healing, and help our nation recover and find your promised peace.


Amen
