You may recall that in early December one of our fellow members, Skip Stam, called to my attention a resource related to Religious Freedom in Focus.  Following that email, another fellow member, Steve West, informed me of another resource that also may be of interest to you.  Please see the below from Steve.

I write about religious liberty issues weekly for World Magazine Digital.  You can find those updates, which usually post Tuesday by 5:00, at
