BP This Week: Remembering the Giants Who Passed in 2017

John Stonestreet and Ed Stetzer remember some of the great Christian leaders and thinkers who went home to the Lord in 2017. But they open with appropriate cringes over CNN’s latest gaffe: live coverage of marijuana smoking revelers on New Year’s Eve. Our hosts wrap up the show with two recent religious freedom developments: a reversal of a FEMA policy on churches and a court ruling in Oregon.

    Thanks for a great BPTW. Just an FYI, Doug Coe was not the founder of the Fellowship, rather it was Abraham Vereide. Doug was, however, an amazing follower of Jesus and clearly the leading servant of the NPB, and the ongoing work with leadership behind the scenes with the Fellowship.
