In how I go forward in a politically divisive age, I continue to formulate my thoughts around the WHY and the WHO.
I listen regularly to Pass the Mic podcast because it comes from two young black Christian men. One is a historian. The other is a pastor. They bring perspective that challenges me and makes me think, especially when I disagree with them.
But this podcast summarizes well (not perfectly) how I am working on my voting process this year. I will not summarize nor will I answer questions asking me to summarize. You need to listen to their voices. I’m tired of summarizing. I need to listen more… as do each of us.
I listened to the Holy Post Podcast and this week’s discussion (beginning around 10:30.00) has a discussion on an Atlantic Monthly article by David Brooks on the “nuclear family.” It was a fascinating discussion FOLLOWED BY Part 2 of an interview with Matthew Soerens of World Relief on the subject of immigration.

The podcast is HERE.

They call us to step away from the consumer culture and change up time and space. This is a great podcast to pick up, since it’s brand new. And this particular episode with well worth your time.
A New Year’s resolution of mine has been to try and get back into podcasting. Here is my first attempt.
A head scratching parable for me is found in Luke 16. It is the parable of the “shrewd manager”. It’s such an odd passage that most commentaries will simply state it’s an odd passage and difficult to interpret.
