The Seventh-day Adventist Church filed an amicus brief today urging the United States’ top court to accept the case of a Muslim girl who was denied a job because her hijab—a head-covering—violated a company’s policy.

The Adventist Church’s “friend-of-the-court” brief is joined by seven other faith groups for the case Equal Employment Opportunity Commission vs. Abercrombie & Fitch Stores, Inc. The U.S. Supreme Court will decide in October whether to accept the case.

csm_wilson-vegas-SMALL

Seventh-day Adventist world church President Ted N. C. Wilson forcefully asserted that life has existed on the Earth for only a few thousand years, not millions of years, as he opened an educators conference in Utah on Friday, and he said teachers who believe otherwise should not call themselves Seventh-day Adventists or work in Church-operated schools.

At Pathfinder Camporee, Daniel reenactments deliver big lessons from big stage

Actor Bryan Roback, playing King Nebuchadnezzar, loses his crown and wig during an ardent rant in a performance on Wednesday, August 13. The nightly play at the 2014 Pathfinder Camporee presents lessons from the book of Daniel about staying faithful to God. It is presented on a 100-foot-wide stage to an audience of more than 46,000. Image by James Bokovoy

A funny thing happened on the way to the throne the other night. King Nebuchadnezzar’s wig flew off while he ranted at the front of his giant chair.

It was an unplanned physical gag that fate handed to actor Bryan Roback on Wednesday night as he sat on a 100-foot-wide stage. He was part of a cast playing to 46,000 people sitting in camping chairs on a field in the middle of Wisconsin. While the mishap didn’t cause Roback to miss a beat—nor his fellow actors, save for a few brief smirks—it got one of the night’s biggest laughs, both from the audience and a few doubled-over actors backstage.
