Christ-centered Counter Culture

Yesterday's violence at the US Capitol has left us feeling shocked and dismayed.  How can those of us who follow Jesus respond redemptively to this event? Biblical scholar and culture watcher Jim Denison joins Chris Brooks to ground us in Scripture as we look toward the future of our nation.
Then, Chris leads us in a timely discussion about the hope and healing that can be ours as we learn to truly love God, love our neighbors, and love our enemies.
