On Friday’s Houston Matters: Methodist churches across Houston will hold services this weekend just days after leaders of the denomination upheld a policy banning same-sex marriage and LGBTQ clergy. Local Methodist leaders share how they'll navigate services this weekend in the wake of the divisive decision.

Last month, a recluse living in Scotland had a health emergency and sent a distress signal from a satellite tracking device. His call for help was picked up a few thousand miles away near Houston by the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center (IERCC) in Montgomery. We learn how the service works and how it was able to help the man.

Also this hour: We break down The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week’s news. And, as we prepare to celebrate another Texas Independence Day, we revisit the story of the original Texans who fought for independence from Mexico.
