The latest research shows that landlines are far more common among homeowners (34 percent have them) than among renters (15 percent), while Hispanic Americans (20 percent) are less likely to have them than their White or Black friends (30.5 percent).

The Washington Post dives into Americans and landline phones to answer the question: "Who are the people still with a landline?". Check out the article here.

Give Us Today Our Daily Bread


In the third petition of the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus instructs us to pray “Give us today our daily bread.” Join Groundwork as we dig into Scripture to understand this petition better, why it’s meaningful, and what it helps us remember. Together, we’ll discuss how asking God for our daily bread nurtures our faith—both in times of want and in times of plenty, and we’ll explore how this petition speaks to our worry, teaches us to trust, and encourages our gratitude.

Listen to the latest episode through The Lord's Prayer from our partner program, Groundwork.
