Franklin Graham Undergoes Specialized Heart Surgery at Mayo Clinic

Evangelist Franklin Graham underwent specialized heart surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, on Monday. On his Facebook page, Graham says his doctors told him he should expect a full recovery.

Graham wrote on Facebook: "I had developed constrictive pericarditis, which is inflammation and hardening of the sac around the heart that compresses the heart and prevents it from working properly. The surgery involved removing the pericardium, and we thank God that it went well.

"The team here at Mayo Clinic does such an incredible job—I couldn't speak more highly of them. My doctors said I should expect a full recovery and will be able to return to my normal ministry schedule.

End-Times Expert Asks, 'Is Joe Biden Killing the US Economy on Purpose?'

Joe Biden keeps telling us that he wants a strong economy, but he keeps doing things he knows will hurt the economy. How can we explain this?

One possibility is that he is simply extremely incompetent. Perhaps he really does want to improve the economy, but all the economic decisions that he makes turn out badly because he lacks competence. Considering how much he has declined physically and mentally, and considering the lack of quality in the team he has surrounded himself with, that is not a completely implausible theory.

But others would suggest that nobody could do this much damage to the U.S. economy unless it was being done on purpose. Biden just keeps making more moves that have people scratching their heads, because it almost seems as if he doesn't even care about the political consequences of his actions.

Boy Scout Christian Alternative CEO Headlines Speakers at Fatherhood Summit

Trail Life USA (, the largest Christ-centered, boy-focused scout-type organization in the country, is pleased to announce that CEO Mark Hancock will be a keynote speaker at the upcoming Promise Keepers Fatherhood Summit on November 10, 2021. The event is designed to challenge men to better engage their children and model fatherhood as God intended.

The 2020 U.S. Census reported that one in four children, or 18.3 million kids, live in a home without a father, step-father, or father-figure. Children who grow up without a strong paternal figure in their lives are more likely to have behavioral problems, have substance abuse issues, drop out of school, or other concerning traits. The need for a godly role model is great, yet many men struggle to make that connection with the children in their lives.

For Hancock and Trail Life, the goal of inspiring men to be godly fathers and mentors is key to the development of boys of all ages. Dedicated to building character, fostering leadership skills, and encouraging adventure in boys across America, Trail Life offers a safe place for boys and men to create meaningful relationships that will impact both fathers and sons.
