With 25 years of experience under his belt, a registered nurse from Langhorne, Pennsylvania, lost his job at a Catholic hospital in early December because he refused to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Michael Murray explained during an interview this week with Faithwire that he was terminated from his role at St. Mary's Medical Center— a part of Trinity Health —on Dec. 6 after seeking a religious exemption due to the fact that he had already had and recovered from a bout of COVID-19 in November of last year.
As a result of his previous infection, Murray said, he had natural, "God-given" immunity and forced vaccination was "a violation of my conscience and, really, basic common sense."
Christian Aid Ministries is revealing the stunning details of how its missionaries finally escaped captivity in Haiti, and it sounds like something straight out of a movie.
The remaining group of 12 missionaries made a daring overnight escape last week, eluding their kidnappers and walking for miles over difficult, moonlit terrain with an infant and other children in tow.
The group used the stars as their guide to reach freedom after a two-month kidnapping ordeal, officials with the Ohio-based agency said Monday at a press conference.
It was 22 years ago that this group started meeting together. Though the composition of this group has changed much over the years, as many of the founders have graduated on to their heavenly reward, there yet remains a faithful core of the original group. There has been an addition of many new strong prophetic voices. Cindy Jacobs remains as the convener and senior leader with other generals at her side. I, James W. Goll, remain, as one of the founders alongside Bishop Bill Hamon and others.
It is our conviction that we are to function as an Acts 13:1-3 group. This passage notes that it was the Holy Spirit releasing a prophetic word to the group, as opposed to the exclusive word of any one prophet. So, it is the consensus of our ACPE members that the Holy Spirit is speaking the following prophetic words to us.

The church, led by Pastor Jarrett Stephens, saw a remarkable outpouring of faith commitments while running its annual Christmas Spectacular show from Dec. 8-12, the Baptist Press reported.
Something incredible happened each night during the show—a powerful spectacle with music, lights and awe-inspiring performances—when Stephens shared the gospel and asked people to hold up the flashlight on their cell phones if they had, indeed, decided to accept Jesus.
Thursday night, right before Christmas, set your eyes on the skies to see something that astronomers say will never pass this way again.
Comet C/2021 A1, better known as Comet Leonard, will make a close approach to Venus after passing by the Earth just a few days ago.
According to Arizona University's A News, the comet can be seen low in the southwestern sky just around sunset.
